To process a glass some different wheels have to be used successively. What are these wheels?
1/The diamond wheels
It is the only tool able to remove material ( glass). We use it toa/Remove the cutting capability for the glass just cut ( on the sides) ( To prevent accidents)
b/Reach the final required dimensions for the glass
Some diamond tools. as you can see there are a lot with differences we are going to explain after.
2/The polishing wheels
Here we are looking for decorative effect. These wheels are not able to remove any material ( glass) . There are used to remove the lines done on the glass by the diamond and to polish the glass
3/The stone wheels
They are used when you need to remove small quantities of glass and to polish in the same time.They try to do the job for 2 wheels, one diamond and one polishing.
But they are also used only for polishing.
Some stone wheels
4/White wheels or cerium oxyde wheels
These wheels are only used to shine the glass. No glass removal
For some very specific applications ( mainly the bevel) the traditionnal polishing wheels are not able to polish perfectly the glass. In this case a felt with an addition of cerium oxyde liquid is required.
6/Others specifics tools
The milling cutter or the disc to cut the glass.
The drills to drill teh glass
