The latest investment in machinery from Nottingham based KLG Glass has been for a vertical CNC milling machine supplied by The Glass Machinery Company.    KLG are a long established family business.

In recent years, the company has enjoyed strong growth in the production of glass splashbacks. One time consuming aspect of manufacturing is producing the cut-outs for 13amp power sockets in the end users kitchen. Traditionally this is executed manually taking up to 15 minutes per cut-out. However this production time has been drastically reduced to 4 minutes per cut-out with the compact, vertical CNC for milling glass manufactured by Zafferani.

Saving time is indeed the name of the game with the 3 axis, single spindle, CNC vertical milling machine that has been specifically designed by the Italian company Zafferani after consultation with glass processors.  The purpose of discussions was  to greatly reduce time spent producing hinge and socket cut-outs, but without the major expense of a traditional horizontal CNC work centre.

The vertical option from Zafferani has a maximum cut out size of 200mm wide x 550 high, although the compact open top machine will take a sheet size of up to 2400mm x 3210mm. The complete drilling, milling and countersink cycles are performed using one special combination tool which eliminates the need for tool changes. Whilst the machine is producing, the operator is free to do other work, thus making his time more productive.

A delighted Trevor Greenfield who owns KLG Glass said, "the amount of time saved will make a huge cost saving on the volume of cut-outs we produce every week. The machine is already paying for itself in the first few days".
