Please watch the video of our latest semi-jumbo(108- by 144-inch) CNC Linear Motor glass cutting line, including a robotic glass loading system, which can load 25 to 30 different types of glass. The design minimized floor space requirements while also accommodating building column interferences. Glassline’s CNC LM Cutting Machine design provides high speed, high acceleration, AND tight tolerances. It is very low maintenance due to the use of linear motors and a patented direct drive cutting head, eliminating the use of any belts or gears to wear. Call today to discuss how we can help collaborate on your project, for the best solution for YOU. GLASSLINE®, a name you have trusted for 50 years.
Appliance, as well as some other manufacturers, need to process small parts for things such as refrigerator shelves. It is more costly and difficult to handle if the raw glass comes from the float line in small pieces. Therefore a slitting line is one solution, whereby the glass can be shipped in larger blanks, and slit, or cut down into the smaller pieces required. Slitting is the process of using multiple cutting heads to score a sheet in a straight line. This slitting can happen with the glass moving past fixed cutting heads, or by placing the cutting heads on a bridge with the glass fixed in position. In the case of the example shown, the block is automatically loaded by our overhead loader, and the block is automatically positioned so that the slit pieces are of a nominal size tolerance. The glass is then transferred under the slitting bridge which has five slitting heads. These heads are automatically set up to size by the program based on the size of the block and the size of the parts desired. The glass is then transferred, the scores are snapped, and the individual parts are fed into a Glassline double edger, which is the only edger fast enough to handle parts at this speed. Other slitting configurations can be proposed depending on your needs.
