CNC Glass Cutting Machines
GLASSLINE CNC Cutters feature a PATENTED CUTTING HEAD with a direct drive system that eliminates belts and gears, improving accuracy. and reducing maintenance costs.
The direct drive unit eliminates mechanical backlash in a belt and gear driven system Cutting pressure is regulated by the CNC system via a servo valve, allowing for fully programmable pressures throughout the cut. This allows cut pressure to be optimized based on shape and speed A digital readout is also provided A special sensor is used to monitor if the wheel is on the glass, which can save damage to the cutting head Specially designed mounting to enable easier calibration McInnis brand precision tool holder Specially designed cutting oil delivery system including a check valve located at the cutting head to reduce waste Glassline has spent many years developing and improving their CNC control algorithms for glass processing applications, providing a highly accurate user friendly, and feature rich system.
Product category: Water treatment for grinding technology
Using our extensive CNC manufacturing experience, high precision WaterJet machines are designed to provide the robustness and ease of maintenance to which our Customers are accustomed.
Glassline can provide various configurations of WaterJet Glass Cutting systems for your particular needs. These can be: X-Y gantry, Polar, etc.
Complete tank separation from CNC machine, for easier build, shipping, and maintenance Retraction of the cutting heads away from the tank for easier automated loading and unloading Transmission components away from the cutting/tank area.
Similarly built to our HE style of machines, periphery-profile diamond wheels are used to grind the glass edges. The design utilizes a specially designed head that allows a very light grind pressure to be applied. The heads therefore can provide a consistent seam even on glass that is not necessarily cut well. A pressure as light as about 3 psi can be applied for a very light seam of the top and bottom edges of the glass side/top and side/bottom interface. The machine can process glass as fast as 30m/min. Heavier pressures can be applied for heavier seams, and different wheel profiles can be used to produce up to a #1 pencil edge. Complete systems are normally sold in order to seam all four sides. This includes a 90 Degree Drop Transfer, or In-Line transfer. Glassline can also provide additional handling equipment such as transfers, conveyors, nudging systems, logo markers, etc. to feed your tempering furnace.
Glassline's machines are a cut above the competition. There are many features that provide our Customers excellent value. For example, our compliant grinding heads allow our Customers to minimize stock removal to only what is required, reducing waste, and lowering their costs. We utilize linear rails and bearings for the adjustment of our spindle base width, whereas most of our competitors utilize cam rollers. The rails, along with double lead screws, ensure a longer life and more precise adjustment. See our Double Edger Features and Benefits page for a complete list.
