Pyroverre acquires the Cluzel mirrors in France


Pyroverre is a glass products processor based in Châteauneuf-du-Rhône (Drome), storer and distributor of fire resistance glasses from Pilkington (NSG group) for the southern part of French territory.
The company, created in 2010, is specialized in the transformation of Pilkington Pyrostop and Pilkington Pyrodur glass products. She cuts custom glass for a clientele made up of mirror makers and carpenters. Its design office is dedicated to specific customer requests to ensure compliance with fire regulations.
In 2015, the Côté Verre company, founded by Maryline Pereira, joined the group to offer online sales of all types of cut, shaped and then shipped glazing from the production workshop. The online configuration tool makes it easy for customers to order on the site.


Why the Cluzel mirror?
We asked Mathieu Guenin, manager of the company, to explain the reasons for this takeover. Mathieu Guenin and Maryline Pereira know that the implementation is the continuity of Côté Verre's activity, the demand from local customers being recurring and increasingly important. They then form an installation team. They quickly realized that it would be easier to do an external growth operation. They are interested in a possible acquisition and have found the miroiterie Cluzel in Montélimar, near Châteauneuf-du-Rhône. The manager, Danielle Fargier, wanted to retire. She was assisted by Eric Coin on a technical level with solid know-how.
The company's equipment allows for the cutting, shaping and drilling necessary for simple mirror-making operations. It has a van with a glass-holder gantry. The store has an area of ​​80 m2 and the workshop of 160 m2.
The clientele consists mainly of individuals and professionals as well as local administrations.
Integration and transformations
The takeover took place at the end of January 2021. Mathieu Guenin recruited Paul Fabre as agency manager as well as Dorotea Nacasabog as sales assistant. Dannielle Fargier will accompany them for three months to pass on his knowledge to them, while Eric Coin will continue his consulting, cutting and glass installation activity.
The existing store will host a new showroom in the form of a show apartment to enhance the offer of the mirror by presenting the products in situ. Railings, kitchen splashbacks, a floor slab, a staircase and a dielectric mirror hiding a screen. The turnover of around 300,000 euros is expected to rise to 600,000 euros.
Although the health crisis has slightly impacted Pyroverre's activity due to the shutdown of construction sites during the health crisis, Mathieu Guenin remains optimistic and believes that the French economy will rebound rapidly. At the same time, online sales via the Côté Verre site are experiencing significant growth, explains Maryline Pereira.

Cup wheels double edger machines or lines.

 

These machines are using cup wheels. It means they are only able to carry out flat edge. They are mainly used for large batches and for glass over 8 mm (even if they are also used to work on 3 mm glass) when a good polishing is required.

The machines on the market are supplied with, 6, 8 or 10 spindles and more for each double edger side.

But the more popular machine is a 10 wheels (3 diamond wheels, one diamond and one polishing for each seam, 3 polishing wheels or 2 polishing wheels and a bright polishing wheel).

Machines with 11 wheels (4 polishing wheels) and machines with 12 wheels (same than the 11 wheels but with 4 diamond wheels) are also available on the market. But with a 12 wheels the diamond wheels position adjustment is not easy.

For the lines, a transfer is installed between the 2 double edger (on line or at 90°) and the squaring devices is installed on the second double edger which must to be the machine able to process the more important width (to have the more precise squaring).

To be able to put on line after the double edger line a more economical horizontal machine and to have only one operator on the line (for loading and unloading), generally another transfer is added after the second double edger.

Due to the market inquiry the suppliers propose more important machines (able to open up to 6 meters width)

Main options.

The number of options for the double edgers are very important, because they are very often customized lines.

Corner cutting spindles

There are 2 special spindles (one for each side and only on the second machine for a line) to edge the 4 corners of the glass (without polishing) to prevent glass broken during tempering).

Motorization for upper seams diamond spindles

To be able to adjust automatically the seams’width with the glass thickness

Motorization for the diamond spindles for the edge to adjet the spindle position with the tools wearing.

For this kind of machine the wheels wearing is very fast.

…….

 

 

You must also to have a look on :

-How is done the replacement for the polishing wheels.

For this kind of machines you can have to change polishing wheels every day (on average a polishing wheels has to be changed each 2000 meters processing) and on a 10 spindles lines you have 20 polishing wheels!

-Speed and precision for the glass changing dimensions ( double edger opening and closing)

Mainly when you process small batches
