HYPERFEX Grinding Solutions

New. Improved. HYPERFEX.

The revolution in edge grinding







HYPERFEX Grinding System

HYPERFEX is a new holistic approach taking into account all process relevant parameters. In combination with the HYPERFEX Administrator software, which pioneers the communication between grinding wheel and control system, there are opening up huge improvement potentials:

  • Cycle time and machine performance
  • Grinding quality
  • Grinding wheel life time

In focus so far:

Grinding wheel only

In focus at Glaston:

The entire process

Until now, grinding wheels have been developed by manufacturers without a view of the overall process. There are however multiple important factors interacting with each other, to be considered to achieve a perfect grinding result. The grinding wheel as such needs to fit perfectly like a puzzle to all these factors.

In a project lasting several years, Glaston has developed its own grinding wheels in cooperation with experts and research institutions.

Our individually composed grinding wheels are the perfect match to comply with all application quirements.

Aspects of the overall process are

  • Cutting- and breaking process, grinding allowance
  • Stiffness and vibration behaviour of the construction elements
  • Wear condition of the machine
  • Repetition accuracy of the CNC axes
  • Optimized speed and acceleration of all machine axes
  • Coolant system and fluid technology of the nozzle rings
  • Specific customer quality requirements
  • Machine generation and upgrade possibilities to latest ACS

The new product family

Depending on application and process, the use of VOLUME, FAST or FINE grinding wheels will lead to the best possible result.

Technical background:

Multigroove grinding wheels

  • High-precision Z-axis adjustment on all Glaston machines as a precondition
  • The HYPERFEX Administrator software enables the communication between grinding wheel and control system to easily handle up to 10 grooves in one wheel
  • Huge potential in improved efficiency

Grinding wheels with different compositions as sandwich

  • High-precision Z-axis adjustment on all Glaston machines as a precondition
  • The Multi Grinding software enables repeated grinding cycles with up to three grinding wheels of different compositions
  • Customized wheel compositions ensure grinding results close to polishing

Tim Widner at Lippert Components in the US is sharing his and his team's experiences working with the Glaston glass processing machinery. "The new equipment has been a great addition to us. We are able to one-piece flow our raw material through our line, hands-free. No humans come in contact with the glass until it is fully tempered and at the end of the process."
