The arrival of 18m jumbo sheets at a Saint Gobain factory recently was no dilemma for the HEGLA team with its Galactic Plus float glass cutting machinery, that has been developed with electromagnetic linear drive that can handle glass sheets up to 20m long. The combined, high resolution measurement system works without mechanical gears, minimises wear and sets new benchmarks in precision engineering.
Hegla UK Managing Director Steve Goble said: “With an appetite for skyward living becoming more and more popular, as inner city buildings reach new heights, glass is now the evident favourite for all the benefits it adds.
“Design plays an important role in a finished project, with its ability to create the right architectural balance between performance and aesthetic. Shops, apartments, restaurants and businesses now easily sit together under one giant glass facade, but creating supersized units to meet the needs of the construction companies remains firmly in the hands of the processors.”
