Seaming removes any rough edges or burrs from the edges of in-process glass sheets. Seaming is a functional process, not a final polish for cosmetic appeal.
It is commonly used on glass sheets that will be assembled into double or triple-pane insulated windows, since the glass edges will ultimately be covered by sealant and frame. With tempered glass, seaming is critical for avoiding edge crack formation.
For all products, it makes glass handling safer for operators by knocking off the sharp corners. The seaming machines offered by Preferred Glass Machinery clean up both the top and bottom edges of a glass sheet simultaneously, and offers complete flexibility for custom sizes and shapes.
