S.I. Howard Glass Company specializes in the supply of high-quality flat glass components. In addition to offering a variety of standard glass parts and products, we maintain a broad range of custom glass fabrication capabilities. One of our core service offerings is machine edging, a manufacturing process we use to grind the edge of glass substrates.
Machine Edging Services
Performing this service for over 70 years, the experienced professionals at S.I. Howard Glass Company have mastered the art of edging glass. As a result, we can produce near-perfect edges while still maintaining precise tolerances. With this service, customers benefit from affordability, accuracy, and reduced processing times.
We can edge nearly any diameter, with the ability to develop square shapes, parallelisms, or any flat shapes. For precision squares, we use state-of-the-art equipment, including the following surface grinders:
We can also dice parts as small as 2mm x 2mm. For more information, please see our precision dicing page.
We utilize our own proprietary equipment to edge diameters. This equipment allows us to not have to wax the parts, which increases our throughput and reduces cost. We can hold tolerances of +/- .1mm on these machines.
