At Peterlee Glass, we have several state-of-the-art glass processing machines, each one allowing us to create different sizes, strengths and specifications of glass. We produce everything from giant sheets to shaped glass and offer fast lead times for a glass processing business.
There are near-constant developments in both trends and technology in the world of glass manufacturing, and we like to keep up to date with what’s happening in the industry so we can meet our customers’ requirements and stay ahead of the curve. In this post, we’re going to take a look at two of our newer working centres – the Intermac Master 63 and the Intermac 45.3 – in which we recently invested. Both are world-class machines that have opened up our business to new clients and allowed us to work on a broader range of projects.
The Intermac Master 63 at PLG
Intermac describes the Master 63 as a machine without limits. That’s us! The Master 63 not only provides the possibility of adding giant pieces of glass to your next project, but it also uses Computer Numerical Control technology (CNC) to create stunning finishes in all kinds of complex configurations. When linked up to a PC, it’s possible to program the machine with designs prepared on ICad or ICam software. What’s more, due to the industry-leading accuracy provided by computer control, CNC shaped glass can be curved or even drilled with perfect holes.
PLG’s Intermac 45.3
The Intermac 45.3 is a triple-axis working centre that, like the Master 63, can create large pieces of glass. It also has the capacity for ultra-precise drilling, as the CNC technology offers close integration with saws, meaning it’s possible to cut intricate patterns into glass. On top of making large pieces of glass for architectural or manufacturing use, both machines can also create glass with shaped or bevelled edges.
Welcoming these two Intermac working centres onto the production floor at Peterlee Glass means we’ve been able to take on a higher volume of projects and complete them in record time. We are delighted with the combination of quality and speed that we’ve been able to access due to the investment. The precision offered by Intermac’s specialist CNC automation has also enabled us to create spectacular new designs to our client’s specifications, which is exciting for both staff here at PLG and our customers. Since acquiring the machines, our briefs have consistently become more complex – and the architects we’ve been working with are delighted that we’re up to the challenge!
The scope of possibilities we offer to our nationwide customers puts us ahead of other glass suppliers – and we’re here to listen to your glass processing plans for 2022. Drop us a line, and we can get started. It might just be that one of our Intermac working centres provides the technology you need to reach the next level in your business.
