The laminated glass cutting machine of the VSL-A series combines state-of-the-art laminated glass cutting technology with decades of LiSEC know-how about automatic laminated glass processing.
How is the laminated glass cutting system configured?
Our portfolio includes numerous solutions for loading the system, from tilt-able transport sections up to float glass cutting tables. A transport section connects to the new VSL-A laminated glass cutting system.
How does the laminated glass processing work?
Edge deletion of coated laminated glass takes place optionally at the upstream float glass cutting, or directly via the laminated glass cutting bridge. Afterwards, the jumbo sheet is positioned at the laminated glass cutting bridge by limit stops, automatically aligned and cut. Rotary vacuum suction cups automatically turn the sub-plates, enabling fully automatic processing. Conveyor belts automatically move the cut sheets to the take-down section. Sheets can be removed manually or with tilt arms. Remnant plates are either transferred to the integrated disposal section, or into the optionally available remnant plate storage.
For whom is the laminated glass cutting system suitable?
Both small glass processors and large companies benefit from this machine. It allows you to produce a perfect glass edge faster, easier, and more profitably than ever before. This machine adapts to your requirements, supports you automatically and can be freely extended to your exact requirements.
What advantages does the machine offer?
The machine guarantees highest cutting quality due to a warm separation process with continuous gap measuring. The foil is then cut via blade. Standard equipment includes automatic edge deletion and sub-plate turning, as well as tried-and-tested electronic aids such as cutting wheel and blade monitoring. Automatic cutting wheel change, tilt arms or breaker bars can all be configured.

Processing of X, Y and Z cuts without any operator intervention through automatic turning of the sub-plates with 2-point rotary suction cup
Fully automatic cutting of shapes with laminated glass
Extendable tilt arms for unloading large and heavy sheets
Additional cutting head, which enables automatic tool changes for different glass thicknesses
Grinding wheel for Low-E coating removal on the laminated glass cutting bridge
The retaining beam technology reduces cutting times, and consequently cycle times, by up to 30 %. This means that the growing demand for laminated glass can be met with just one cutting bridge. Thanks to the integrated Low-E mode, relative movements on the glass surface are prevented, which maximises the glass quality.
Two rotary vacuum suction cups grip the glass jumbo sheet from below. Through the servo coupling of both axes, the sheet is turned through precisely 90° and accurately aligned with the limit stops fully automatically. Operator intervention is no longer necessary and the fully automatic processing of X, Y and Z cuts is guaranteed.
The five mobile positioning stops can be retracted into the positioning section and ensure exact alignment of the glass sheets. The limit stops are equipped with a clamping function for the automatic outfeed of remnant glass. Vacuum suction cups on the top transport the glass sheets into the take-down area, or serve as positioning aids during cuts which are longer than the positioning station.
Equipping the system with an optional second cutting head allows using different cutting wheels. With this option, the system switches to the correct cutting wheel when the glass thickness changes, reducing idle times and errors. Optionally, the cutting heads can be equipped with identical cutting wheels for series production. In this case, the system exchanges the worn cutting wheel for the unused one, which avoids idle times and wrong breaks.
