With ever increasing demands for bespoke glass, we recently invested in a new state of the art Forvet drilling machine.
The FRANCESCA FC 1250 model is a fully controlled NC glass working centre, capable of performing drilling and countersinking operations on flat glass sheets even of irregular shape. One of the major advantages in this type of machine is the absence of minimum distance between successive drilling operations.
The working cycle is completely automatic, without the need of any manual intervention. The NC optimises the approach speed of the heads, controls the glass transport feed, drilling speed and water quantity and adjusts the drill length to compensate for wear.
