Using the latest Computerised Numerical Control (CNC), we offer CNC glass cutting in a range of thicknesses. Our CNC cutting service includes CNC mirrors as well as bespoke shapes and cut-outs for fittings to your exact specifications and designs.
What can our CNC glass cutting machine do?
One of the most versatile and adept machines at our glass processing plant, our MASTER 43 fully-automated CNC glass cutting machine uses a variety of specialist glass drills and grinders to cut and shape glass in thicknesses from 4mm to 19mm. Using this state-of-the-art machinery, our master craftsmen are able to achieve the following:
- Cut complex shapes – The CNC cutting service can be used to create complex cut-outs in glass patch fittings and components such as those used for frameless shower doors, glass balustrades & balconies and stair rails. Cut-outs for sinks, extractor fans, plug sockets and switches in glass splashbacks are further examples.
- Drill holes – Holes can be drilled in glass cut to size for fittings such as door handles and door hinges. CNC cutting can also create decorative holes and holes for polished shapes to create a finger pull within the glass.
- Intricate detailing – As well as being able to create bevelled edges in straight or curved glass, our digital glass cutting machine can create elaborate designs to engrave glass that has been cut to size.
- Cut and polish – Where the finished edge of the glass is left exposed after cutting, the CNC machine polishes all edges of the glass as it goes. It has a minimum polish radius of 15mm or 7mm flat arrissed.
When does the computer controlled cutting service happen?
All computer controlled glass cutting and polishing takes place before the glass toughening stage of the process. To enable us to custom cut your glass, we can work with either DXF files (associated with CAD) or to your own templates, which we can scan and convert into DXF files.
