QBE20: Quartz bar aligning Machine

Slicing of quartz bars is most effective when a high number of bars can be processed in one single step. Our machine is a special design for building stacks of up to 6×5 lumbered quartz bars.

Bars are filled into a magazine and are then automatically transported, measured, X-ray adjusted and then pressed against and fixated into a stack. UV-light is used to cure the adhesive glue.
