Experts within the industry recognize that a machine such as the Automatic Vertical Cutting Line sets For.El. apart from the rest, when it comes to manufacturing machinery for the flat glass and double glazing industry.The idea to cut laminated glass in vertical position as opposed to horizontal, was an ultimate goal of the company, a goal that has been achieved via inspirational design and technology.The concept was developed after recognising that the amount of floor space used via the horizontal method was huge and unnecessary whereas a vertical line uses far less space and offers factory management the opportunity to design diverse production layouts.
As most laminated glass is stored and processed vertically it would seem logical therefore to cut it vertically. Moving the glass from vertical to horizontal and then to vertical again involves equipment and handling that has been eliminated by the Vertical Cutting Line.
Since the introduction of the first Vertical Cutting Line, For.El. has continued to develop the machine which has led to improvements in production. The introduction of a second cutting bridge after the glass panel rotation unit has increased the possible cutting surface to 800 m2 /8h, which is four times bigger than that of the single bridge option.
The automatic vertical cutting system has launched the Venetian company into a position of international recognition and importance. Thanks to this machine sales have boosted in the past ten years to an ever growing global market and awarded For.El. world wide satisfaction. In fact, many glass processors and double glazing producers are using this machine because of its high quality and revolutionary performance. By choosing For.El. range of equipment they feel confident of delivering products that meet the expectations of their valuable customers. The Vertical Cutting Line has revolutionized the traditional method of cutting glass and even if early sceptics doubted about a real success of this innovative method, customers are clearly satisfied with the results obtained.
The For.El. Vertical Cutting Line for laminated glass is available in various models according to the glass pane. Items VC3301-VC3302, VC4501-VC4502 and VC6001-VC6002 have maximum cutting heights of 3300 mm, 4500mm, and 6000 mm respectively, and all have a minimum width of 110mm.
