In edge processing we give the blank a face. What comes out of the cutting department has irregular, sharp edges. If this edge remains invisible later on, for example because it is lying in a frame, it is only arrised; i.e. the sharp edges are fractured so that no one gets injured in later work steps.
Visible edges usually get a C or U shape. A stepped edge is used for pressure loaded viewing glass.
The most impressive, however, is when someone hits the specially ground edge of one of our industrial HMIs with a large screwdriver – and nothing happens. We will be pleased to advise you on which edge processing is suitable for your task and the raw glass selected for it.
