Upgrade kit – New cutting tool modification


Three reasons to upgrade

1.

INCREASED PRECISION

  • Real cutting path is 100% according to the
    programmed path
  • Higher cutting accuracy and a more precise radius
    at process start and finish
  • Significantly reduced glass grinding allowance
  • Reduced cycle time and increased grinding wheel life

2.

EASY TO OPERATE

  • Easy-to-install, plug-and-play upgrade kit, with minimum
    downtime
  • Cutting path is simple to program
  • Directly creates shaping and nesting file without
    step-by-step optimization
  • No additional lubricator required for compressed air

3.

WIDE RANGE OF APPLICATIONS

  • Perfectly suitable for thin glass applications
    down to a 0.4-mm thickness
  • Highly precise cutting force adjustability,
    even for the thinnest ranges
  • Repeatable cutting accuracy of ± 0.1 mm

Upgraded cutting tool combined with direct-drive technology


You can now retrofit your existing Bystronic glass automotive and architectural glass cutting equipment manufactured from 1995 onwards with a new cutting tool. The upgrade kit includes a new direct-drive cutting tool with a springless cutting wheel shaft.

This kit is available for existing champ’speed machines with a B&R control system, champ’compact machines with CNC96 control systems and all architectural glass cutting equipment with CNC96 control systems.

Your benefits:

• Increases the cutting accuracy of the machine
• Perfectly suitable for thin glass applications down to a 0.4-mm glass thickness due to the adjustable cutting force precision
• Optimized breaking result improves both the grinding time and grinding wheel life, resulting in reduced costs

“The market in Vietnam for cars is very large with lots of room for growth. People are becoming wealthier, and sitting in a car is more comfortable than being on a scooter, which may be prohibited in the next few years,” says Nguyen Phuong Tran, Production Manager, and son of Long Nhien Automotive Glass’s owners, about his home market. “The Glaston Matrix windshield bending furnace is a stepping stone for us to tap into this rapidly expanding business of hundreds of thousands new cars per year.”
