Flat glass processing


The glass is supplied with sheets with 2 different dimensions. Jumbo sheets, 6000x3321 or half jumbo sheets  3210x2400 or 3210x2450 or similar.

From the glass sheets, the glass processing is going to carry out some technical operations on the glass to be able to manufacture all the glass products.

The main ideas are:

-To secure the glass using

Removing the cutting areas and reduccing teh glass dimensions in case of breakage to prevent injuries

-To improve the aesthetic effects

-Giving to the glass a pleasant shape, polished edges, engraving on the surface...

-To give to him several functions

-To drill to hang it, to carry out double glazing, laminated glass...

The first thing to do is the cutting. After, depending the product to carry out, the glass will be edged, drilled, bevelled, polished, engraved, bended, tempered...

The glass can also be used to manaufacture, double glazing, laminated glass....

These different processing can be done with the glass in vertical or horizontal position.

Edging :

To polish the edge surface.

There are two main glass types. The one with straight line edegs and the other ones with shaped edges.

For the straight line edges you can use, manual tools, belts machines, staright line edging machines, double edgers when you have  alot of glasses to edge)...

For a shaped glass you can use a shaped edging semi-automatic machine or a CNC machine.

In both cases are used abrasive tools (diamond tools) plus polishing tools, and from time to time bright polishing tools.


Bevelling :

Technically speaking it is one of the more difficult process to carry out on glass.

Ici aussi on utilisera des outils diamantés puis de polissage (dans ce cas feutre ou autre matériau + mélange eau et poudre de polissage (principalement oxyde de cérium)).

Les machines utilisées sont : outils manuels, machine à bande, biseauteuse rectiligne pour les biseaux droits et machine à bande, contournée ou commandes numériques dans le cas des biseaux en forme.


Le perçage :

Percer du verre n’est pas une opération facile. En effet, cette opération qui s’effectue avec un forêt diamanté va créer un éclatement du verre, dû à la pression du forêt lorsque l’outil va déboucher.

Pour éviter ce problème le perçage doit s’effectuer avec une amorce de trou d’une profondeur de 2 à 3 mm sur le verso du verre avant de percer par le recto.

On peut donc percer un verre en deux fois en le retournant ou utiliser une perceuse équipée de deux broches de perçage de part et d’autre du verre ) percer.
