Laminating without Autoclave
LAMINATING WITHOUT AUTOCLAVE...Ervin has been burning the midnight oil to release a new line of laminating machines that can operate without the use of an Autoclave.  This is huge news in the glazing world as laminating glass has always required a large line with a very expensive Autoclave, and this has put producing laminated glass out of reach for many fabricators.  NO MORE, Ervin has an array of machines that operate with the new popular EVA films or the old standby PVB films.  We are very excited to be bringing these machines to market, testing has been ongoing in Europe for the past 8 months with great results.  Our manufacturer has just received a CE rating and we are able to bring the machines to the states.  The machines have garnered a lot of attention and we already have orders in the books.  ERVIN will be stocking a large array of both EVA and PVB films for these machines.  Uses for these machines will span from custom designer applications, to commercial and bullet proof glass applications.  Really the only limitations will be your imagination.  And the best part is the machines will range in price from $25K to 75K, which should allow almost anyone to get into the laminated market.  If you have any questions please let us know and we plan to release more information as we have it available.

Cerium wheel polishihg machines
Cerium wheel polishing machines gaining in popularity. Cerium impregnated wheels have long been used in all types of polishing machines with varied results. Within the last 5 years the cerium wheeled machines have really given the felt wheeled machines a run for their money. Manufacturers are producing better and better cerium wheels that are very close or just as good as thier felt wheel counterparts. The most obvious and greatest benifit of the the cerium wheel is that it does not need to have a wet cerium powder to produce its polish like the felt wheels must use. It works with straight water or a mixture of water and collant. This greatly reduces the cleanup and maintenance on the machines. Wet cerium mixture is very corrosive and requires a lot of work to keep the machines in top running condition. We are all always looking for ways to make our jobs easier and the cerium wheels for todays polishing machines do just that. Please feel free to contact us if you would like to learn more about cerium impregnated polishing wheels.

By adding one additional polishing wheel ERVIN's 5 spindle machine puts out a very nice polish and has many a happy customer with its performance. Please check out featured products for this great machine.
ERVIN in China for training

While in China they were able to gain valuable experience in the assembly and trouble shooting of glass processing machines. There main focus this trip was on PLC controlled polish/miter machines and beveling machines. The PLC controlled machines are gaining in popularity for their ease of operation and very short learning curve. These machines can be view at the following link Bret and Ramiro were also able to go through the list of upgrades that ERVIN will have on all machines including all stainless steel covers, oiling system for front and back tracks, height adjustment for entrance conveyor, and track roller for all racking systems.
