Glass Cutting using Waterjet cutting solutions by Bear Glass

Abrasive waterjet cutting technology is a great method for cutting glass because it allows for contours and shapes that cannot be achieved with other cutting machines at a reasonable cost. From artistic tabletop inlays to detailed stained glass designs, mirrors, glass ornaments, replacement windows for antique cars, and more, there’s almost no glass cutting application that a waterjet cutting machine can’t tackle.

Glass has a tendency to crack, so it is very important that the initial holes are produced with a reduced pressure . Subsequently, the pressure must be increased to a cutting speed that is cost-effective. For glass, ceramics and other brittle materials, you must gradually increase and reduce the cutting pressure by means of proportional pressure control of the intensifier pump, otherwise, the material would be destroyed.

As an alternative waterjet technology can be used as an abrasive because it is softer, which reduces the potential for chipping, cracking and other surface blemishes and leaves a cut edge that is polished to a smooth finish.Because waterjet cutting does not vibrate the glass, there are no heat-affected zones to leave behind rough edges, almost no secondary finishing is required.

ADVANTAGES OF CUTTING GLASS WITH WATERJET

  • Cut glass geometry that common machining cannot perform
  • Delicate glass does not crack during processing
  • Precisely cut thin to thick glass without changing any tooling
  • Eliminates pressure of cutting process on surface material
  • No heat affected zone
  • No tool to sharpen
  • No need for reworking of the cut edge
  • No waste of material, narrow cutting gap
  • Cost effective means of cutting holes in glass
  • Create intricate design in any shape and size

How Can Our Water Jet Cutting Machine Expand Your Business?

At Bear Glass we pride ourselves on staying up to date and keeping up with latest cutting edge technology. That being said, Bear Glass is excited to introduce our new water jet technology! From i ntricate glass shapes to mirrors, glass ornaments, and more, there’s almost no glass cutting application that a water jet glass cutting system can’t tackle. Both thin and thick glass materials can be cut and detailed with a precise cutting stream. And because water jet cutting does not vibrate the glass, produce heat-affected zones, or leave behind rough edges, almost no secondary finishing is required. In addition, water jet cutting’s ability to generate exact, clean cuts with speed make it an efficient cutting process for the majority of glass cutting applications.

Bear Glass uses a Pure Water Jet Cutting Machine manufactured by Perfect Technology Center. The Water jet system is an ideal machine for the cutting of various materials and is extremely versatile compared to alternative machinery such as lasers and plasmas. Water jet cutting is performed with “pure water” for the cutting of – foam, package products, gaskets, gibson board, carpet, food, rubber, and many other soft materials.  The power of this pure water jet is so strong it has the ability to cut  – steel, copper, aluminum, granite, marble, and even laminated glass. The Waterjet cutting process does not generate heat; eliminating the warping of materials like copper and aluminum. Based on the media to be cut, Bear Glass is proud to say that we offer PTC water jets that offer cutting systems with cut speeds that will exceed 4000 inches per minute. This speed is triple other water jet manufacturers capability due to the PTC state of the art Linear Drive motion system.
