CHIARA MTP 8 Edge Processor is an automatic, numerically controlled grinding and brilliant polishing machine, capable of operating on four sides of the glass, flat edge and arrises, simultaneously (patented system).
The structure of the CHIARA MTP 8 requires considerably less space than a complete traditional double-edging line and is substantially faster.
The working cycle is completely automatic: the NC parameterizes the approaching glass, controls the glass transport feed, adjusts for the dimensions and thickness of glass, controls wheels removal rate, feed speed and compensates for wheels wear.
Another advantage of the CHIARA MTP 8 is the possibility to operate each side of the same piece of glass with a different kind of finish (i.e. one side polished, one side ground, one side arrises only, one side clean score).
All FORVET solutions are configurable and customizable
The four grinding heads are mounted on the four controlled axes of the main frame and hold the 8 grinding – polishing wheels. Each single spindle is automatically adjusted according to the glass thickness and wheel wear.
Automatic vacuum system
A particular configuration of the automatic vacuum system with suction cups managed by the NC according to the different glass dimensions, hold the glass during the grinding process: as a result, CHIARA MTP 8 is the only edge processor that can operate SUPER LOW-E glass without contact with the treated surface (regardless the type of coating).
