A single sheet of glass has a plethora of options. The toughened glass allows our glass processing professionals to use both contemporary and classic technologies to produce magnificent glass alternatives for homes and business spaces.
Nevertheless, have you ever thought about what happens to the glass while processed? We’ll take you on a brief tour of the glass manufacturing process and glass processing process in this post to show you how the magic occurs.
Our company handles everything from innovative cutting and shaping techniques to aesthetic accents like sandblasting and back-painting to provide you with the top benefits of glass processing.
We have a specialised glass processing plant. All of our products begin as a large, untoughened sheet of glass known as “float glass”. Each sheet is 4m square and ranges in thickness from 4mm to 19mm.
We also sell ultra-clear glass, fused glass, reflective glass and fire glass for more specialised applications.
When a project begins, we use cutting-edge robotic equipment to choose each sheet and transport it to the manufacturing line.
For most of our client orders, we use a cutting-edge glass cutting method.
The automation procedure is divided into various phases. First, the software determines the best arrangement for cutting individual glass orders from a single sheet of float glass.
The system then picks the appropriate sheet of float glass before putting it onto the cutting table.
A machine then slices each piece of glass with pinpoint accuracy, reducing waste to a bare minimum.
Finally, the glass is scored by an automatic cutting head.
Machining and Shaping
During the glass production process, the glass might have to be bent or drilled further, depending on the product.
Thus, we employ a combination of computerised numerical cutting (CNC) and waterjet technologies for this specialised work.
To fit any use, our professionals can shape, drill, and add precise cut-outs to a piece of glass.
Polishing, Bevelling and Sandblasting
To do this, our professionals utilise a machine to polish the glass’s edges, providing a smooth and secure surface.
For mirrors, we also provide a bevelled edge treatment.
In terms of glass sandblasting, we are skilled at using basic approaches that result in maximum secrecy.
Toughening and Laminating
This is one of the most important steps in glass processing. In our toughening factory, we heat each glass product to above 600°C for toughening.
Our modern laminating factory manufactures laminated glass in thicknesses ranging from 4mm to 19mm.
This procedure is only performed after the glass has been hardened. The client selects a RAL colour, which we spray over the glass before baking it and adding a protective aluminium finish.
The last step is to convey the glass from the plant to our consumers. We supply glass to India, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, Maldives and Nepal.
