Glass Cutting Process
Scribe and Break
In working predominantly with flat sheet glass materials, scribe and break is the most common method of sizing glass substrate at Coresix. A series of precision CNC scribe tables accommodate large stock sheet glass purchased, whenever possible, directly from the manufacturer's production line. This assures a minimal amount of handling defects coming into our process.
Though used at various stages of production for unique and creative applications, the water jet is also often used in the initial sizing of materials which are not conducive to the traditional scribe and break process.
Though we do not currently maintain this capability internally, Coresix has regular wire saw runs performed to maximize material usage and minimize processing time on certain block materials. The wire saw provides an ideal condition from which to perform finishing operations on the glass substrate.
