Glass Cutting Tables/Lines

Z-SERIES

The Z-Series is our premium glass washer and is offered in 70", 96", 110" and 132". The Z Series platform is a high-performance glass cleaning system focused on the bottom line.  Intelligent maintenance features and high-level process control help to place this washer above others.  The Z-Series is engineered to sustain an optimum level of cleaning over years of continuous use and offers easy access to internal components for cleaning, maintenance, and minimal downtime.

Robotic Arm Loader with CNC Cutter

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.

Glass Rectangle Slitting (Strip Cutting)

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.

CleanCut™ 1800 Series Glass Cutting Table

GED’s CleanCut™ 1800 Series of glass cutting tables—which includes a cutting only model (1800) and an edge deletion and cutting model (1800-D)—complement the CleanCut 1700 Series and is scaled to accommodate larger glass, a maximum of 96 by 130 inches (244 by 330 centimeters). The systems combine patented technologies in hardware and software that allow customers to produce more insulating glass units, in a shift, more efficiently and at higher quality. Programmable cutting and deletion force uses electro-pneumatic actuation to deliver precise amounts of pressure for each glass stock resulting in reduced glass waste due to breakage, improved scoring and deletion quality, and reduced operations disruption. A regenerative braking system feeds unused power back to grid to provide energy savings and reduce the elimination of braking resistors and excessive heat generation. This all adds up to lower total operating costs and higher quality residential windows. Learn more at gedusa.com or call 330-963-5401. Read the press release. Visit the product web page.
