Shaped edging machine

We speak here about a machine able to carry out only shaped edge


Depending the thickness, the cutting accuracy, and the quality, between one or 3 diamond wheels are required to carry out this and one polishing wheel;


This machine works with peripheral wheels. It means, for each edge kind and each thickness you need a set of wheels.

The using of such a machine is not very difficult. But it is a half-automatic machine which need a continuous presence of an operator (apart for circle for some machines).


The price difference with a shaped machine able to carry out edge and bevel is not very important.

A shaped edging machine is dedicated for very specific markets. Moreover the presence in most glass companies of a cnc machine able to carry out the same work but in an automatic way decrease the interest of such a machine.


You must have a look on:

-The possibility to install several wheels together on the spindle (to finish to edge and polish a glass without changing the wheels).

-The possibility to have a memory for the Z position of the tools (to save time for adjustments).

-The possibility to have several spindle rotation speeds (minimum 2, 1400 and 2800 rpm).

-Option to carry out circle in an automatic way.

-How to edge small glasses (between diameter 200 mm and 600 mm)

-These machines works with water projection. The waterproofness for plate, spindle and moto-variotor is a key point for maintenance and machine long life.

-The machine needs a 3x3 meters area. Better in a corner of your workshop (because the water projections)
