Glass treatment center: WATERJET – Glass cutting with water jet

Water jet cutting technology under high pressure is modern and universal method for treating most of the materials, including glass. It involves producing the concentrated energy of water jet under high pressure (max. 3800 bar) with the abrasive. This method is characterized by the absence of thermal, mechanical, and chemical stresses of treated material. Cutting is smooth and very accurate (+/- 0.1 mm).

Advantages of glass treatment with WATERJET:

  • high quality of cut edges, (in many cases there is no need for further finishing treatment),
  • cutting holes of any shapes,
  • minimum diameter of the hole is 3 mm.

Grinding of glass edges:

  • glass edge treatment: grinding and polishing:
Szlif trapezowy Szlif C-kant
trapezoid grinding – (straight with slightly bevelled edges) c-corner grinding (shape similar to C letter)
  • inside grinding above 20 mm diameter.

Edge polishing:

  • inside polishing above 30 mm diameter.

Additional advantages:

  • in treatment natural materials are used,
  • the method is environmentally friendly,
  • the method is cheap and flexible; it allows material optimization.
