Grinding glass


Grinding means that the edge of the cut glass panes can be modified to give them different customised profiles and finishes.

Vetraria Colpani uses a number of special machines for this operation: four numerical control machines to shape the glass, completely electronic and computerised and suited for large glass panes (one of these is ideal for really large panes - 6m x 3.2m); a machine for bilateral grinding; an arrissing machine to shape and one in line; a vertical drill.

The shaping, flaring and drilling operations are highly precise thanks to the special software used by specialised technicians.

All grinding processes are custom-made and after the material has been thoroughly controlled to check its resistance and quality.
