Glass polishing

Glass polishing makes it possible to make the sharp side of the glass smooth and / or shiny, and also reduce the accuracy to +/- 0.5mm.

 

When polishing glass, there are multiple possibilities for different results. The following is a list of these possibilities.

 

Glass polishing sharpening

Glas poli slijpen The major part of the cutting is partially, or totally, carried out automatically. On our Intermac cutting table we can cut small amounts thematically.
We also have the ultra-modern Movetro TMA-40-S, which gives us the ability to cut completely automated serial numbers  quickly and accurately.
Of course we, as a well-known glass company, have not forgotten old craftsmanship. Where necessary, we can cut a glass pane manually to size while you wait.

Glass convex and concave polishing

Glas convex concaaf slijpen Besides the regular polishing, we can polish the glass to make it convex or concave.
With this cutting method, the glass gains a round edge (convex) or a hollow edge (concave).

This operation is commonly used in hard glass walls in which different glass panes must be directly connected to one another. Because of the hollow and round side, they slide “into each other”, making it unnecessary to seal them. This creates an extremely stable wall with barely visible joints.

Glass polishing facet

A facet is a sloping edge with a given width at the edge of the glass. Virtually all types of glass, in almost all amounts of thickness, can be fitted with a sharpened facet edge. Because it is cut under a certain number of degrees, the glass edge becomes thinner as the facet widens. The thicker the glass, the wider the facet can be made. A facet can be made on both a straight glass plate, and one having a different shape.

Depending on the thickness, facet widths are available from 05 mm to 45 mm.

Glass miter cutting

Glas verstek slijpen Miter cutting is the same kind of application as polishing. However, when polishing a facet, the discs press against the glass under a (variable) angle from 0 to 67.5 degrees. The thick side of the glass is ground and / or polished. It is possible that a residual value is retained.

 

CNC polishing

Glas slijpen This polishing operation is also a side process, which is used particularly in models. There must be enough space for the use of suction cups. The amount of tolerance starts, depending on the thickness, at +/- 1mm.
