This Somaca/CRL SM5C Vertical Five Cup Flat Edger produces a polished flat and seam edge at an economical price. Five cup wheels grind, seam, and polish the glass as it runs through the machine. The two Polish Wheels ensure a smooth, high-quality finish. The last Polish Wheel is a Cerium Impregnated Wheel that gives the glass a clear polished finish. The conveyor speed is variable from 1.6 fpm to 9.8 fpm (0.5 to 3.0 mpm), and the machine has a large glass rack with the capacity to handle a 550 pound (250 kg) piece of glass up to 100" x 63" tall (2540 x 1600 mm). Thickness of glass can range from 1/8" to 1/2" (3 to 12 mm), and requires that only the arris wheel positions be changed for different thicknesses. Spindles have position indicators to make re-setting wheel positions easy. Glass pieces can be as small as 4" x 4" (102 x 102 mm). Compressed air is not required because all functions of the machine are set manually. Ammeters for each motor are mounted on the control panel with individual and main motor controls.
