Diagonal CNC Glass Cutting Machines


In-Line System CNC multi-axis machine for S/L and Q/L

The unit provides a solution to cut, break and manipulate multiple pieces from a larger raw glass blank. The raw blank is scored on a programmable angle across the blank width, automatically broken at the score. The broken off part is then picked up, rotated and position onto a downstream process, such as a CNC shape cutter. The diagonal cutter is used to reduce the amount of scrap when cutting S/L and Q/L and also to reduce the amount of raw glass inventory.

 

Specifications:

  • Max Raw Block:(40" x 80" / 1m x 2m)
    Custom sizes also available
  • Thickness: 3mm to 6mm
    other thickness can be optionally accommodated
  • Cycle Time: Approx. 10 sec. per piece out
  • Break Accuracy: +/- 0.5mm
  • Max. Quantity of breaks: limited only by part and block size

 

Features and Benefits:

  • Servo positioning and interpolation of the cutting head for programmable angles
  • Flexibility and ease of programming automated break system
  • Vacuum carriage is rotated by a servo axis
    Parts are picked and placed onto the downstream shape cutter in position, eliminating the need for further squaring of the raw block, and reduceing maintenance
  • Full width belt is cleaned by brush in order to minimize scratches from chips
  • The controls will normally be integrated into the same CNC controls as the shape cutting machine
