The NC Working Centre Francesca FC 1600 WJ is a new concept of equipment that combines two productive technologies controlled by a single numerical control.
The advantages offered by this technologic synergy are great and important.

The big novelty conceived by Forvet is to unite the principle of the drilling process realized with diamond tools with the water cutting.
The two productive principles interact reciprocally without limit, they complete each other and every one benefits from the ability of the other, increasing at the best the production capacity. This translates into a huge advantage for the production, because it is possible to choose the process, according to the working requirements.

The FC 1600 16M WJ can be considered as “two machines in one”. In fact it is the only working centre able to automatically control the positioning of the glass, executing drilling, countersinking and milling operations both with diamond tools and water jet.

The NC working Centre FRANCESCA FC 1600 WJ execute drilling, countersinking and milling operation on flat glass sheets also of irregular shape ranging in thickness from 3 to 25 mm (up to 19 mm only WJ).
The maximum drilling diameter is 70 mm: larger diameters can be performed by the water jet or with the milling operation.

The working cycle is completely automatic, without any manual intervention.

All FORVET solutions are configurable and customizable
