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

"Glass has become a feature of the building – not just something you’re looking through. That’s why all the glass we deliver must be of the highest possible quality,” says Andrew Dolphin, General Manager Glass Operations at BVGlazing in Toronto. “Glaston’s RC350 and FC500 have helped us expand our business to greater capacity with outstanding glass quality.”

“We’ve always been an important partner to the large window manufacturers in Finland. Listening to their needs and responding has helped us stay competitive in this market,” Tommi Nousiainen, CEO of PLG in Finland, explains. “We were not specifically looking for a tempering furnace. But when our customers began to require high-quality tempered glass, we moved swiftly ahead with an entry-level Glaston RC model. Since then, we have already been able to upgrade the line twice in response to the rapidly evolving market.”
