RMC GKM-2 glass knifemaker
High quality ultra-thin sections requires high quality glass or diamond knives.
Glass knives produced by the ‘balanced break’ method are proven to be the sharpest and most consistent compared to traditional glass breaking methods.
The RMC GKM-2 glass knifemaker is specifically designed to incorporate the “balanced break” method to produce optimum knife edges. Balanced breaks require equal lengths of glass on each side of the score, along with a mechanism that applies equal load to each side, resulting in a slow, controlled and straight break.
To achieve consistent, controlled breaks, two aspects of the breaking process must be measurably controlled: position and load. The RMC GKM-2 glass knifemaker accurately positions the glass using precision micrometers. During the glass breaking process the load exerted is controlled by the clamping handle and breaking arm with constant feedback displayed on the digital readout. This enables the operator to consistently reproduce breaking pressure during the final controlled break for more accurate knives every time.
The rectangular shaped body of the RMC GKM-2 glass knifemaker is machined from solid metal components for long term stability and precision. It is designed to handle commercial glass strips ranging from 6 mm (1/4″) to 8 mm in thickness, with mechanical stops for producing precise 25 mm glass squares with ease. Micrometres provide reproducible alignment of the 25 mm glass squares for precise diagonal breaks. The alignment is secured by a locking mechanism to maintain your desired setting.
