We have developed a new concept of building machines, every single part of the machine is designed with 3D CAD technology, processed by CAD CAM and machined with a CNC Working Center.
This innovative system is the only one that can guarantee perfect uniformity and constant quality of all the machines that are being built and every single part of the machine can be easy replaced if needed, even the felt table surface.
The machines assembly is divided into specific steps, controlled by a management software, which supports and guides our technicians during the various stages of assembly, the following pictures is an example of the assembly steps:
The sliding system of the bridge are made with a pinion-rack system. The racks and the pinions are tempered and refaced. They have a ± 0.02 mm tolerance with 1.20 MT (47.24 in) length. The teeth om the racks are turned towards low. One pinion is placed on the two sides of the bridge, to keep always perpendicular the bridge to the cutting table during the acceleration and deceleration phases.
On both sides of the table is applied one linear guide and one rack, to obtain a overall bridge stability during the cutting cycle.
The loading of the glass sheet from the loading table and unloading on to the breaking table happens through n° 5 T10 belts which raise up and down during the automatic cycle. The speed of the belts is adjustable through a inverter and the movement of belts can be adjusted: “forward” toward the breaking table or “backward” toward the loading table.
The belt management system is adjustable, and it allows the adjustment of belts flush with the surface of the table to obtain a perfectly flat surface for glass sheet cutting.
The cutting bridge is made in rigid steel. The whole system is very stable and insensitive to temperature changes, assuring minimum wear and tear.
The cut trolley is made in aluminum. The cutting head is made with special machines with hundredth tolerances. The up and down system of the cutting head is guided by a system with re-circulation of ball-bearings, to reduce the friction as much as possible and guarantee the cutting head response to glass scoring.
The cutting head is equipped with a unique dual management system for cutting pressure. If the automatic proportional valve doesn’t work properly, it is possible to switch to manual mode simply by rotating the appropriate switch, from Auto to Manual and continue cutting.
The alignment of glass sheet is automatic through laser 3Directions.
The work surface is made with very hard wood, covered with woolen felt with high density and compactness, 4 mm thick (0.157 in).
Laser system for shapes scanning any type of material, with a smart unique software for fast shape scanning.
Max. workable glass sheet mm. 4000×2600.
Workable thickness From 2mm to 19 mm (0.079 to 0.748 in). Machine can cut every kind of glass (except tempered)
Safety of glass presence:
A sensor is placed on the cutting head, to stop the machine in case of lack of glass sheets.
Management of mechanisms:
Immediate and controlled breaking of the bridge and the cutting head, as soon as an emergency occurs.
Weight Kg. 1600
Work surface height:
Adjstable from 890mm to 960 mm (34.65 to 38.19 in)
Maximum installed power: Kw 8
Maximum speed of the bridge 180 m/min and cutting head 230 m/min
Max. acceleration 0.6 sec. from 0 to max. speed
Max. deceleration 0.6 sec. From max. speed to 0
Max. difference in length between two diagonals for an area bigger than 2mq (21.528 sq.ft.) (glass 3 mm thick) (1.118 in.) +/-0.20 mm (0.0196 in).
Rectilinearity tolerance (glass 3 mm thick) (1.118 in.) +/- 0.15 mm (straight cutting) +/-0.20 mm ( shape cutting).
We have a Vetromac CNC machine and we love it. We have had one of their machines in our shop for the last 3 – 4 years in our plant. They have been so helpful with everything. If there is a technical question they are quick to respond. I am so appreciative to have the team of Vetromac to call on when I need them. I would not hesitate to purchase another machine from them when that time comes up in the future. Thank you for always being there for us!
We have been impressed with the excellent service and quick response time for our Vetromac cutting system. The system integrated smoothly with our production software and replacing our previous cutting system with the Vetromac has significantly improved our cutting time of coated glass with the edge deletion. Vetromac also offers many add-ons that will allow us to expand our future product offerings without the large capital expenditure of an entirely new system.
The Vetromac Team produces a great cutting table at a competitive price with the best warranty in the industry. They really understand the essence of time and not only delivered the table by air but their continued service was the most important factor during my purchasing decision. When or if my company is to graduate into another cutting table or a larger facility, I will have no reservations as to who I will partner with, Vetromac.
This is the first automatic cutting table we have purchased; it is so easy to use and gives such brilliant results that we now wonder how we managed without it. The only problem we have encountered is one which was due to operator error; Vetromac were brilliant at talking us through where we had gone wrong and the problem was solved in a matter of minutes. We have no hesitation in recommending the company and their products.
We have been operating a glass processing plant with a glass cutting table from Vetromac for the last 3 years and are very happy with the performance of the machine. The user interface is very easy to navigate and takes very little time to understand. The machine is robust and precise. It is a quality machine that we would recommend to other glass processors. To back up the product, Vetromac provides excellent after sales service.
