The concern and incessant search for a cut of glass with exceptional quality has motivated the redesigning of tables: the wood has been completely removed from the support area of the glass and replaced by aluminium. A measure that gave greater stability to the structure.

The surface of Turomas cutting tables, like that of other manufacturers, has historically been made of wood. Wood is a living material that changes when it is cold, hot, and above all, humid. The deformation that it suffers when it absorbs moisture is detrimental to achieving the best possible cut of glass.

The concern and incessant search for a cut of glass with exceptional quality has motivated the redesigning of tables: the wood has been completely removed from the support area of the glass and replaced by aluminium. A measure that gave greater stability to the structure.

A phenolic is applied to the aluminium. The cutting bridge rectifies this covering along the way to get rid of any unevenness and achieve a planimetric tolerance that is perfectly parallel between the table and the cutting tool. This way, stability and precision in the scratching and cutting is guaranteed, something which is essential with thinner glass.

The phenolic component is also highly resistant to water, humidity, high levels of steam, many chemicals and is not highly vulnerable to damages caused by impacts and bending.

The advanced TFS planimetry system, together with the patented 4-Tool cutting tool, has led to an impeccable cut from 2 to 25 millimetres, as well as machinery that is durable over time and resistant to external conditions. No other manufacturer in the market has implemented a process like it.

The combination of aluminium material and phenolic panel has two more advantages. On the one hand, the simplicity when it comes to replacing one carpet with another. On the other hand, the immediacy of the air outlet towards the surface of the table, since the porosity of the wood is what causes the loss of air flow.
