VERTIGO is a universal vertical Working Center CNC which marks a change in the flat glass processing.
Reducing handling of the glass sheets from one machine to another, controlling downtime and waste, matching small batches with superior quality and efficiency are the inspiring principles of this innovative machine.
VERTIGO blends the finish brightness of a straight line edger, the squaring accuracy of a double edger, the versatility of a CNC center and the perfect edge finishing of a counter-heads drilling machine. All in a single integrated vertical workstation.
VERTIGO is the real zero set-up CNC vertical center that opens a new era in superior glass processing with extraordinary versatility, power and precision for the most diversified tasks:
- Cup wheel edging and polishing with variable angle 0°-45°, also with cerium oxide
- Squaring of the glass sheet
- Drilling with twin counter-heads
- Edge shaping and polishing with peripheral wheels
- Arrissing and trimming.
VERTIGO is the solution to semplify your job saving energy, time, labour and material, with a dramatic cut of downtimes and scraps, Vertigo is the only vertical center able to perform the whole glass sheet processing cycle with a single machine set-up and operator.
ADVANTAGES OFFERED BY VERTIGO
TIME SAVING: with VERTIGO all jobs you need to perform on the glass sheet are carried out automatically without manual intervention, eliminating transfer of the glass across different machines (e.g. from double edger to drilling machine or CNC center)
COSTS SAVING: In less than 100 square meters VERTIGO carries out the same tasks the equivalent 4 machines (straight edger, double-edging line, CNC center and drilling machine) can do requiring at least 500 sq. meters.
WASTE: Risk of glass damaging by transferring it across different machines is totally eliminated. With VERTIGO you go from the cut raw glass to the ready-to-wash finished product.
ENERGY: Compare the 40+ motors of a double edging line, the 10+ motors of a straight edger etc. with VERTIGO and you easily figure the dramatic energy saving over time.
TOOLS: Unlike other vertical machines that require different tools to flat edge glass pieces of different thicknesses VERTIGO allows you to process any glass with the same cupwheels set.
UNMATCHED GLASS EDGE BRIGHTNESS: VERTIGO outpaces all other vertical machines introducing 3 revolutionary concepts:
1) Fixed, hyper-rigid working area to eliminate any vibration as opposed to operating groups travelling along the glass sheet’s perimeter as featured on all other vertical machines.
2) Cupwheels edging on straight edges, by-word of superior finishing and fast processing
3) Perfect, seamless shaped and straight edge work with polished joint between glass corners and edges.
LOW-E FRIENDLY: On VERTIGO all jobs are carried out each time on the bottom side of the glass piece thus water and removals fall off by gravity without getting the glass surface dirty as it happens on all other vertical machines. Result: the glass surface is far cleaner and coating much better preserved.
TOTAL FLEXIBILITY: VERTIGO can edge with cupwheels ANY polygonal glass sheet including out-of-square sheets as well as triangles, hexagons and the like.
