The machines are ‘double edger style’ utilizing specially designed seaming heads that allow a very light grind pressure to be applied and therefore can process glass at a very fast rate. These are GLASSLINE’s ‘SE’ style of head. The heads therefore can provide a consistent seam even on glass that is not necessarily cut well. A pressure as light as about 3 psi can be applied for a very light seam of the top and bottom edges of the glass using a ‘V’ profiled wheel. The machine can process glass as fast as 30m/min. Heavier pressures can be applied for heavier seams, and different wheel profiles can be used to produce up to a #1 pencil edge, however on mostly thinner glass thicknesses such as 3-6mm. Complete systems are normally sold in order to seam all four sides. This includes a 90 Degree Drop Transfer, or In-Line transfer. Glassline can also provide additional handling equipment such as transfers, conveyors, nudging systems, logo markers, etc. to feed your tempering furnace.
Glassline’s machines are a cut above the competition. There are many features that provide our Customers excellent value. For example, our compliant grinding heads allow our Customers to minimize stock removal to only what is required, reducing waste, and lowering their costs. We utilize linear rails and bearings for the adjustment of our spindle base width, whereas most of our competitors utilize cam rollers. The rails, along with double lead screws, ensure a longer life and more precise adjustment. See our Double Edger Features and Benefits page for a complete list.
Our edger platform is designed such that we can provide various sizes, configurations, options, etc. to serve the tremendous variation in Customer requirements in the various glass markets.
