CNC and WaterJet machining

CNC glass processing is often also called numerical processing, as it is performed on numerically controlled devices (hence the abbreviation CNC, i.e. computer numerical control). It is a manufacturing process in which programmed computer software dictates the movement of factory tools and machines. The process can be used to control a wide variety of machinery, from grinders and lathes to mills and milling machines.

Glass processed using the CNC method is characterized by very high aesthetics that will satisfy every customer. The main advantages of the glass treated in this way are repeatability of shape, high quality of workmanship and its precision and safety of use.

  • glass dimension (min.): 500 x 60 mm
  • glass thickness: 3-19 mm

Waterjet is a modern method of glass processing using a water jet. This method of processing glass gained popularity in the 1980s and is often referred to as abrasive blasting or hydro-abrasive treatment.

The machine used for water cutting is a CNC cutter. The water jet passes through the water nozzle and sucks the abrasive into the mixing chamber. Water and abrasive enter the abrasive nozzle and are formed. A stream of water is used to accelerate abrasive grains, which reach speeds of over 300 m / s. Thanks to this, water cutting is extremely precise and allows you to cut materials with an accuracy of 0.1 mm.

The main advantage of glass processing with the Waterjet method is the possibility of making complex, complicated profiles, which cannot be made using other methods. Another advantage is the fact that during hydro-abrasive treatment, the glass does not chip and does not crumble, and this method is considered the most effective method of cutting holes in the glass.
