| After seaming, grinding glass edges is another important work step in glass edge processing. The process is primarily used to remove overbreaks and underbreaks at the edges and to process the glass sheets to size.
| In glass edge processing, cutting the glass sheet is directly followed by the seaming process. Fully unprocessed glass edges exhibit overbreaks and underbreaks, conchoidal fractures, as well as micro-cracks along the broken edge.
| In glass edge processing, the requirements for the finished components can vary greatly depending on the location and purpose.
| The new LiSEC glass edge deletion machines are equipped with improved sensor technology. This measures with greater precision and therefore guarantees constantly high finishing quality of the glass edges.
| Safety standards are constantly rising in all possible areas in which glass is used or installed – which is the reason why lamination is also becoming increasingly important in the glass industry.
| During times when the number of suppliers in all industries is steadily increasing and the market is becoming more and more transparent at the same time, the importance of cost-effective production for higher profit margins increases tremendously.
| It is well known that laminated safety glass (LSG) is a material that is specifically processed because of its composition.
Glass off the roll - Thin glass is revolutionising the performance spectrum of glass and glass panes
| Thin glass – as thin as a razor blade or a human hair – is a reliable method to protect smartphone touchscreens, sensitive filters and sensors.
