Some specialist glass coatings are easily damaged by water and manual handling, so the preference is for dry arrissing/seaming of edges when preparing the glass for tempering. On the other hand, a finer finish is achieved, particularly on thicker glass, when wet grinding with diamond belts.

The brand new factory of Global Glass in Rak Al Khaimah, UAE has therefore decided to order BOTH.
 
Ashton Industrial has installed both their world-remowned UNIX-DIA complete with water-bath tables, and the latest UNIX-AIRFLOW dry version with air floatation.
 
Owner Director Mr Amer Al Aloul (incidentally an avid follower of British football and dedicated Chelsea FC fan) is delighted. More so every time he looks across his office at the original Chelsea FC football with 20 certified top players' signatures, presented to him by the Ashton Industrial team to celebrate the new factory start-up this September.
