Beveling and Edging Equipment
Beyond the Edge
A number of polishing products for beveling machinery are available from Salem Fabrication Supplies. These include Axion and Vista cerium oxide polishing compounds and NovaFelt felt wheels. Axion, a high production grade white polishing compound, provides consistent particle hardness and size. Vista is equally effective in both production glass polishing applications and glass cleaning in pre-silvering scrubs, according to the company. The NovaFelt line features a polyester fiber architecture that readily accepts a cerium charge but resists “loading” and glazing. The wheels provide a polish like natural wool with the characteristics of synthetic materials.
A Clear Difference
HHH Equipment Resources is now offering the Kodiak 371 beveler, part of a line of glass polishing machines. The Kodiak 371 is an 11-spindle machine with a variable angle up to 45-degrees. It includes three felt wheels, seven grinding/smoothing wheels and one peripheral edging wheel. The Kodiak line features a sturdy frame construction with 77-pound spindles and riveted pads. Features include 10-inch display screens, automatic lubrication and UL-certified components.
The Slimpact line from Faour Glass Technologies has a new addition with the family of frameless hurricane impact glazing solutions. Slimpact XL Stack, engineered using Florida Product Approval, offers design pressures of +/- 75 PSF and is available in up to five panels of 12-foot widths by 8-foot heights capable of completing a 40-foot high opening. This new glazing solution offers the option to use the frameless Slimpact XL window system in vertical and stacked applications. Additionally, the system is engineered with structurally glazed horizontal joints.
