This vertical cutting machine has been designed for manual cutting of various decorative patterns on glass articles and, in particular, mat cutting. A design of this machine is modular, so that the main welded frame fits into any desired structure. The cutting machine is usually supplied as a two-piece set consisting of the machine placed on a concrete base and a separate tray made of fibreglass reinforced plastic (the tray is supported with a stand). As for technological design, this is the best solution.
The cutting machine is equipped with a spindle. The shaft (diameter of 40mm) is mounted in sliding bearings. The shaft tip (with an internal M 12 thread) is conical (ratio 1:5). The cutting machine is separated from the tray yet, at the same time, it is solid due to its concrete base. The drive is realised with a POLY-V belt and six-step pulleys which guarantees a transfer of sufficient power and excellent dynamic performance. The back side of the case carries a safe 24V halogen lamp which illuminates the cutting disc. Optionally, the machine can be supplied with a working table, tray made of laminated plastics, water distribution piping, splash cover, glasscutter’s stool, etc.
