Hegla: ultimate float glass cutting
SETTING THE STANDARD FOR DYNAMISM AND PRECISION PROCESSING
Under this theme, specialist for glass cutting and handling Hegla has consistently presented innovations and has set enduring trends over the course of the past few years. The most recent innovation is the new range of the Galactic Econ glass cutting machines. The Galactic product range was first released in 2005, and was a groundbreaking development at that time. Visitors at glasstec 2008 had the possibility of seeing the machine at work: in fact, Hegla had on show a cutting table for glass sizes of 7,000 x 3,300 millimetres combining impressive acceleration and unsurpassed cutting speed. With the new range of the Galactic Econ, Hegla has cumulated its experience with linear drive technology. Glassmakers can benefit from the dynamic movement as a result of high acceleration, also utmost cutting precision, guaranteed for the entire machine working life thanks to its sturdy design.

Lower energy consumption too
Lower energy consumption is a further key feature of the latest drive technology. Because of the contact-free power transmission of the linear drives – no mechanical gears – the maintenance requirement of the entire cutting table is reduced to a minimum. A cooling system for the linear drives, as well as a self-lubrication system for the linear bearings, improve the durability of the entire system even further. All these features result into a very smooth running machine with an impressive cutting tolerance of +/- 0...
