The process of the treatment of sheet glass starts with glass cutting. W-Glass possesses a fully automatic cutting line GTI PETER LISEC/ATH-3, ESL-37/33 RS, BTH-6 of company LISEC. We cut glass sheets with thicknesses of 4 mm to 19 mm and those with the sizes of up to 3,210 x 6,000 mm.
Glass edge grinding
We use a double edge grinding line from company BOTTERO in our production process. BOTTERO TITAN 220 N is a modern, fully automatic grinding line, which allows to grind glass with thicknesses of 4 to 19 mm with maximum sizes 2,000 x 3,600 mm.
Drilling and grinding openings and profiles
INTERMAC MASTER BEVEL is our fully automatic machine (CNC), with which we can offer our customers the treatment of both openings and profiled glass sheets. Intermac Master Bevel allows to drill regular large-sized openings, to mill glass, as well as to treat profiled edges of glass with sizes of up to 1,470 x 2,900 mm.
If glass ordered by you requires openings, then we use a drilling machine from Italian company ZAFFERRAN to drill them, with which we can perform openings required by you with diameters of 4-45 mm. The performance of larger, internally ground openings takes place on a fully automatic Intermac Master Bevel CNC machine.
The toughening of sheet glass comprises a thermal treatment process, during which glass is heated in a special furnace up to the melting point, followed by a rapid air cooling of the glass. During toughening glass becomes five to eight times stronger in relation to ambient factors. Pieces of glass generated at the breaking of toughened glass are small and round-edged, which rules out the possibility of sustaining more serious injuries.
W-Glass possesses a TAMGLASS HTF 3rd series toughening line of the world’s leading sheet glass toughening furnace manufacturer GLASTON, with which we can toughen for our customers glass with minimum sizes of 280 x 100 mm and maximum sizes of 2,090 x 3,600 mm.
Laminated glass consists of two or more layers of glass, between which either a PVB plastic film (film laminate) or a special resin (resin laminate) is used. In the case of the possible breaking of glass, pieces of glass are stuck with film or resin. In the case of glass surfaces requiring higher safety, it is recommended to use both glass toughening and laminating (toughened laminate).
W-Glass, in cooperation with its partners, offers laminated glass with sizes of up to 3,210 x 6,000 mm.
