CNC machines have now become common place in the glass industry and have made accurate processing of glass extremely easy. Whether you are wanting to produce simple volume work or complicated shapes, there is a CNC that can help. And as the CNC market evolves, the machines have divided into two types: vertical and horizontal.
Vertical glass processing is now very much becoming mainstream as glass processors realise the potential of the machines. CMS supply the most technically advanced vertical machines in the market and have a culture of constant improvement. One of the main advantages of vertical over horizontal is set-up time.
VERTICAL CNC GLASS PROCESSING MACHINES
Vertical glass processing is now very much becoming mainstream as glass processors realise the potential of the machines. Cms supply the most technically advanced vertical CNC machines on the market and have a culture of constant improvement. The Profile and Vertec are true fully automatic CNC machines.
Cms horizontal CNC’s are available in three different models, as shown below. The Speed is the smallest machine from the range, followed by the Speed Twin (for and finally the Maxima which is the largest in the line-up. The Speed is supplied as standard with three axes, with the option of adding a fourth axis. The Maxima is a 5 axis CNC for variable angle bevelling and inclined cutting with a diamond blade. The Maxima can also process curved glass. The latest addition to the Speed range is the Twin Head. With this CNC, you can double your production by processing two pieces of glass at the same time.
