Water Jet Cutting

Continuing to improve our service we can now offer vertical water jet cutting with combined CNC edge profiling. Materials up to 80mm thickness can be cut to exact profiles up to a maximum size 5000mm x 2550mm.

The Lisec vertical water jet and processing line offers complete new options for processing different types of glass. In one operation the machine is able to cut out any shape from a wide range of glass types and process it using diamond tools. The machine with combined suction head-clamping bar transport, can easily handle small to very large and heavy sheets. The sheet is brought in, automatically positioned, cut and its interior / exterior are processed, if required, then transported to the washing machine.

Advantages

  • High accuracy of cutting and edge working
  • No micro cracks
  • Easy programming from DXF files enables comprehensive production even for complex shapes
  • No extra sawing required
  • No requirement for extra edge working
  • Designs may span one or multi panel
  • Flexibility in design

The Lisec vertical water jet forms the basis for a continuous production workflow that enables rapid sequential processing of glass sheets. Using the unique jet capture system the water jet behind the glass sheet is released in a noiseless method. This prevents the commonly occurring return jet effects and ensures that the surface of the work piece is not damaged. A special system significantly reduces the water jet cutting time for interior cut outs.

The Lisec vertical water jet can cut floats, VSG glass and fire protection glass. Since no positioning is forced on to the glass sheet during the cutting process, even very thin sheets and sections near the glass edge can be cut with ease. Float glass cut by water jet can be tempered without further processing required. The machine is equipped with a suction bar over the entire system length so that heavy sheets can also be ground along the entire circumference in a single run. In addition, the machine is equipped with a 20-fold tool changer, an integrated tool measurement and an automatic polishing wheel, single-groove extractor.

Technical Specifications:

  • Maximum Sizes (Water Jet Cutting): 2550mm x 5500mm
  • Maximum Sizes (CNC): 2000mm x 3000mm
  • Thickness Range: 4mm – 19mm
