The BFP double edging machine for flat edge using cup wheels compliments the existing peripheral wheel pencil edge series.
To increase production in drilling, Schiatti produced a multiple drilling machine with opposite heads to drill 2-3 or 4 holes ate the same time.
Further range of straight grinding machines for flat edge "family" is introduced with "S" series which is designed for small pieces and narrow strips.
The grinding machine for the flat edge "family" is increased with the introduction of the series "50" deisgned for thick big-size glasses.
Further to English company's specific request, automatic Turnover units were manufactured to allow 90° piece rotation. Complete automatic lines were supplied composed of 4 grinding machines and 3 Turnover units.
The straight grinding machine for flat edge "family" is again increased with series "MITRE", machines, designed to produce both flat and arris edges, and mitres from 22.5° to 45°.
The BFT model is upgraded to become fully automated and the BFT range is increased to process thicker glasses to a high polish. An automatic transfer table is designed to make up the complete line to process all 4 glass sides in one operation.
The original single head drilling machine is replaced by the new model FPD60 with two opposing heads and options like glass support table, tank, pump; it comes in automatic or semi-automatic versions.
The range of flat edge straight line edgers is increased by the introduction of the FPS15. A group of businessmen, including Angelo Schiatti, form GIMAV, an organization bringin together Italian machine manufaturers.
The first 6 wheels straight grinding machine using cup wheels for flat edge and arris is manufactured. Polishing wheels work are operated by pneumatics.
The "Fiera Campionaria" fair in Milan is the occasion for Schiatti to show its prototype BFT double edging machine for pencil edge, model BFT. The machine can process 2 sides of the glass sheet at the same time, halving production time.
Schiatti arricchisce la gamma delle molatrici per il filo tondo con i modelli RI/4M , 4 mole, e RI/6M, 6 mole.
AUTOMATIC DIGGER FOR SOAP DISH HOLES
The automatic grinding machine for soap dish holes which was hydraulically controlled has been designed for the bathroom and furniture industries. It is highly automated to give increased production.
Schiatti manufactured its first straight grinding machines: models AR/2M and AR/2MM equipped with 2 and 3 wheels. Designed for pencil edge, these models can process edges like ogee, waterfall, flat and arris.
WET SAND BELT
A variation of model 118, wet belt sander grinds both arrises and corners.
CUTTER FOR THICK GLASSES mod. 136
The cutter for thick glasses was manufactured to cut glasses up to 25mm by means of a diamond saw. The machine was equipped with a hydraulic moving tablr and a tank fir water.
