CHIARA MULTIFLEX Edge Processor is an automatic, numerically controlled grinding and brilliant polishing machine, capable of operating flat edge and arrises on all sides of the glass even out of square (patented system).

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 Multiflex 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

2 heads (h1/h2)

Glass is transported with belts to glass zero position (Z1). Once aligned, simultaneously H1  will work the leading edge and H2 the trailing edge, than both heads turn 90° to grind the longitudinal edges.

During this process, a second glass can be loaded on the buffer area C2.

Each side of the glass can be edged with different finish according to needs.

Grinding heads

Grinding heads

The grinding heads are mounted on the controlled axes of the main frame and hold the 10 grinding – polishing wheels. Each single spindle is automatically adjusted according to the glass thickness and wheel wear.

The angle adjustment possibility of the heads grants perfect edge polish on triangles, rhomboid,  pentagons, etc.

The machine is equipped with 4 heads: two heads for each glass.
Glass is transported with belts to glass zero position (Z1). Once aligned, simultaneously H1  will work the leading edge and H2 the trailing edge, than both heads turn 90° to grind the longitudinal edges.
During this process, a second glass can be loaded and processed by H3 & H4 on the buffer area C2.
