This cutting machine can be combined with manual and automatic loading and breakout modules.

  • Its structure is made up of electro-welded steel tubular pipes, protected by two layers of paint: rust-prevention and coloured enamel.
  • Accurately flat and carpet padded wooden table surface.
  • Series of pneumatic lifting timing belts for the loading of the loader and the unloading to the glass working area.
  • Possibility of implementing any complex cutting scheme including straight cuts and shape cuts with LOW-E grinding.
  • Aluminium alloy cutting bridge placed in transversal position on the machine with two independent motors controlled by electric axis (Gantry). Motors splined on pinions with rack facing downwards to prevent the deposit of impurities between the teeth.
  • Electronic search glass squaring (mechanic if the machine is combined with automatic breakout tables).
  • It is possible to adjust the cutting parameters directly from the keyboard and memorise the parameters by linking them to the type of glass. This makes the approach to the machine simple and intuitive.
  • The electronic control of all parameters (pressure, speed, cutting acceleration, oil quantity on cut, head descent time, beginning of cut head pressure delta) is constantly ensured by the machine control program. In this way the cutting quality is excellent and constant, which also means a good glass breakout quality.
  • Special solenoid valve for lubrication control, located close to the cutting wheel, suitable for high evaporating oils used in LOW-E glass processing.
  • Cutting head safety devices:
    1. 1. Linear encoder on “Z” axis for glass detection.
    2. 2. Collapsible cutting head element, easily replaceable. In case of accidental impact it avoids the stress on the carriage and the bridge.
  • Special device to limit the cutting head upstroke depending on the glass thickness and to reduce the overall cycle time.
  • Adjusting of cutting pressure through operator Interface.
  • Lubrication cutting system with flow concentrated on the score.
  • Control panel with personal computer, power logic, drivers and safety logic.
  • Head holder carriage activated by direct drive motor on precision racks.
  • Simple and intuitive man-machine dialogue thanks to a software interface which takes into account all glassmaker’s requirements (Windows Vista operating system).
  • In the data input phase as well as in all machine operative functions the operator is guided step-by-step by the software, which helps him to detect any possible errors.
  • Among the standard functions: “Shape Scanner”, “ScanCad”, On Board optimisation software.
