– Shape Glass Cutting. The machine can cut any shape for example tabletops, diameters and oval shapes for the furniture industry.

– Hole Position Scoring. This function will mark hole diameters and cut out dimensions with the carbide cutting wheel. The wheel can score hole diameters as small as 6mm in diameter. This function will speed up the drilling process as the operator does not have to mark out hole positions manually. It will also eliminate errors that could occur through processes.

– Logo and Reference Laser marking. This function will laser mark a company logo or window reference on the pane of glass for your larger projects that will assist the glazier to allocate the correct panel to a window frame on site or at the factory. A window number can now be permanently marked and eliminate labeling errors that may occur from time to time.

Various Horizontal and Vertical Glass Washing Machines.

A Glass Washing Machine, whether horizontal or vertical is crucial in any glass processing factory. Cutting, drilling and milling machines leave residue on the glass surfaces and would take quite some time to clean and dry if done manually. These washing machines convey the glass panels on rollers and are then transferred through soft brushes and water spraying nozzles, this will rinse off any residue left on the surface. The glass will then be dried by means of a heavy-duty air blower compartment leaving the glass crystal clear, clean and dry. Lighting underneath the exit rollers will assist the operator to inspect the glass panels for any defects and scratches.

– 3 X Horisontal Washing Machines

– 1 X Vertical Washing Machine

Horizontal Cross Belt Arrising Machines

The Horizontal Cross Belt Arrising Machine removes only the sharp edges of mostly square panes of glass by means of P120 or P80 Grit water resistant sanding belts. The twin belts are positioned on angles in opposite directions in order to arris the top and bottom edge of the glass simultaneously. Water is sprayed onto the belts in order to eliminate glass dust and prevent quick wear on the belts. The glass sheets move across the table to cover the whole edge. The tables have air blowing through holes from the bottom to make the glass glide effortlessly or by means of castor wheels. These machines are designed for high speed arrising of glass panels where the glass edges will not be exposed in the final application.

Horizontal Glass Drilling Machine

Horizontal Glass Drilling machines drill from the top and bottom simultaneously with precision and speed. These machines are equipped with a laser light in order to drill perfectly onto the scored premarked position from the cutting machine.
The machine cools drilling with water whilst drilling with the diamond core drill bits. A countersunk bit could also be fitted to this machine.

Pencil Edge Polishing Machine (Over Runner)

The Pencil Edge Polishing Machine (Over Runner) is used for polishing 4mm to 6mm shaped glass panes of a small to medium size mostly for the aftermarket automotive market. Its popularly use on most of our local bakkies (pick up trucks) equipped with a canopy securing goods in transit. All glass in vehicles must have toughened safety glass fitted therefore the Pencil Edge Polishing Machine will polish high volumes of glass shapes very quickly.
The round pencil edge diamond wheel is connected to a high-speed spindle with water nozzles spraying onto the wheel while running these small panes of glass edges over the wheel. A simple but effective little machine.
