The automatic glass cutting machine of the DSC-A series combines the latest drive technology with decades of LiSEC know-how in processing flat glass for every requirement. A completely newly developed structure of the table as well as a new cutting bridge and a new cutting head improve the stability and precision of the cutting process. A powerful low-E deletion system with grinding wheel in combination with a strong vacuum system for all common types of special coatings ensure a residue-free and fast low-E deletion result.
How is the DSC-A configured?
Depending on the machine length, the cutting machine consists of several units in modular construction. The master module carries the cutting bridge and the control cabinet and is scaled to the desired machine length with one or more slave modules. The cutting bridge combines new lightweight construction with significantly higher strength values. On the one hand, this results in higher dynamics with more precise and stable cutting results. Conveyor belts ensure high-precision and fast transport.
How does the DSC-A work?
The glass can be loaded either by means of the tilt function or the integrated conveyor belts. The raw glass sheet is then aligned to a defined position with the integrated alignment stops to enable processing without trim cutting. This reduces glass waste. The machine control automatically determines the necessary parameters for an optimal cutting result. It scores the glass with high performance and applies an appropriate amount of cutting oil to the glass surface along the optimisation created by the optimisation software. Depending on the speed and acceleration, the system automatically regulates the cutting pressure and the amount of cutting oil on the glass. The highest possible edge strength of the glass edge is ensured by sophisticated process control, which has a positive effect in the downstream process. After the final cutting process, the glass sheet is either automatically transported out to the downstream system with the integrated conveyor belts or further processed directly on the system.
Who is DSC-A suitable for?
Depending on the design with the available options, the DSC-A is suitable for a wide range of applications in which float glass is to be cut and deleted. This cutting machine is for customers who use flat glass in connection with edge processing or for insulating glass manufacturers. Whether high-precision and fast glass cutting or optional deletion at groundbreaking speed and quality, the DSC-A combines both.
What advantages does the machine offer?
Customers who cut single glass and finish it in a downstream process with edge finishing processes benefit from the high cutting accuracy and performance of this system. This reduces the grind addition in the edge finishing processes and thus saves costs. Another advantage is reliable production through glass thickness monitoring and a new type of grinding head for safe, high-quality and fast edge deletion of special coatings.
As a pure float glass cutting system or as part of a combined float and laminated glass cutting system or in combination with a laminated glass cutting bridge, the DSC-A ensures fast, high-performance cutting of float glass. Furthermore, a high-quality, residue-free and fast edge deletion of the surface coatings of the glass is ensured. The optimised grinding dust extraction system enables low contamination of the system and surroundings.
