One Article to know how much should be invested in tempered glass production equipment

Nowadays, with the continuous development of the production technology of tempered glass processing manufacturers, there are also various new types of glass, with more and stronger functions, and gradually replace ordinary glass. For example, ordinary glass doors and windows that can only transmit light and wind and block the wind have the function of noise reduction and heat insulation after using laminated glass, which is more convenient and practical. This article will introduce the cost of tempered glass production equipment, and introduce the production method of tempered glass, so that everyone can better understand the characteristics of tempered glass.

1. How much is the whole tempered glass production equipment

If all your tempered glass production equipment is purchased in China, Jinan LIJIANG Glass could find the most cost-effective price: 

2436 type (2440*3660) flat tempered glass furnace is about 150,000 US dollars, the price of each manufacturer is different, Supporting pretreatment equipment; 

a 9-grinding head linear machine costs about 8,000 US dollars; 

a 9-grinding head bevelling machine costs about 12,500 US dollars; 

a basic special-shaped machine costs about 3,000 US dollars; 

a drilling machine costs about 3,000 US dollars; 

a glass washing and drying machine is 20,000 US dollars, A set of about USD 25,000 is required for specifications, depending on the level of glass washing; 

normally, a bilateral linear edging machine needs to be purchased, which costs about USD 15,000 to USD 25,000; 

and then there is a turnover. Inventory, rent, workers' wages, etc. 

If these are all new investments, the total budget will probably be around $350,000 to $400,000 before a tempered glass production factory can be officially operated.

2. How to produce tempered glass

Like ordinary glass, it is sand, lime, alkali, and tempered glass, but there is an additional process in the production process. When the temperature drops to a certain temperature, it is quickly put into water to cool, and it is tempered glass when it is picked up.

The process is basically the original sheet - cutting - edging (punching/water cutting/etc.) - washing&drying- (printing/oven) - tempering forming - packaging.

The production of tempered glass is more complicated, and it is almost impossible for individuals to produce it. The cost of a complete set of equipment is too high, and certain mechanical equipment is required.

3.1 Tempered glass 

Tempered glass/Reinforced glass is safety glass. Tempered glass is actually a kind of prestressed glass. In order to improve the strength of the glass, chemical or physical methods are usually used to form compressive stress on the surface of the glass. When the glass is subjected to external force, it first offsets the surface stress, thereby improving the bearing capacity and enhancing the resistance of the glass itself. Wind pressure, cold and heat, impact, etc. Pay attention to distinguish it from glass fiber reinforced plastic.

3.2 Cutting

Cutting is a physical action. In a narrow sense, cutting refers to cutting objects (such as food, wood and other objects with low hardness) with sharp tools such as knives; in a broad sense, cutting refers to the use of tools, such as machine tools, flames, etc. disconnect. In mathematics, there is also an extended "cutting line", which refers to a straight line that can divide a plane into several parts. Cutting plays an important role in people's production and life.
