Low-E or Low Emissivity Glass Edge Deletion Wheel is the best tool and machine parts for processing and removing the coating of various glass surfaces in a glass edge. This Edge Deletion Wheel is made up of metal particles being deposited onto the glass surface using a vacuum. It is used for de-coating Low-E Glass materials which include dry grinding and wet grinding. What makes it very desirable for homes and commercial building is its insulating properties, where the coated glass provide a very low solar factor compared to standard coated glass. It has control sensitivity as it prevents shaking when used. It also has high precision so you won’t need to worry about cleaning it with another solvent after removing the coating. It will result in a glossy finish glass surface. Low-E Glass Edge Deletion wheel is becoming popular and highly important in architectural and building industries due to its energy-saving and environmentally friendly features. This high-quality Low-E glass deletion and decoating wheel are highly-efficient for cutting, automatic decoating, or removing glass coating. It also has a strong cutting mechanism, a well-distributed air hole, wide adjustability, and a special polyurethane bond.

3. Applications of Low-E Glass Edge Deletion Wheel
This edge deletion wheel is mainly used for removing the metal film of the Low-E glass edge for further processing. It also is used as a coating removal machine which makes the edge of a Low-E glass clean and glossy finished. This product is a high-performance wheel, very durable, and has an expected longer life span. Edge deletion wheel is getting much popular in the market especially with its excellent performance result with the new abrasive technology and machinery. The Low-e glass which is used for coating is always insulated with another piece of glass. The coating feature of the glass faces the inner side of double glazing. To avoid corrosion in the coated Low-E glass, verify if there is dry air or inert gas present in the coating feature of the glass faces. The material or what we call spacer or space bar between two pieces of glass is an important factor in keeping the glass in good condition and avoiding further problems. The space bar can be aluminum, steel, stainless steel, and reinforced plastic or rubber. To safely seal the space bar and the glass, we use a good quality adhesive like butyl. However, butyl will not work efficiently if there is still a Low-E coating around the glass edges. This is where Low-E edge deletion takes place. The low-edges are being deleted so the butyl can have direct contact with the glass, making it very adhesive.
4. Benefits of Edge Deletion Wheel
Glass Deletion Wheel or Low-E Deletion Wheel provides a lot of beneficial factors in glass processing, decoating, and polishing. This glass edge deletion wheel is mainly used to remove Low-E coatings on glass. This type of wheel can even delete tough-to-remove coatings and leaves no unnecessary mark on the glass. It is available in various sizes especially for automatic or semiautomatic edge deletion machines and portable handheld edge removal tools.
With its high-efficient performance in glass coating removal, no wonder it is a top-of-board tool in the market. Here are some benefits of the Low-E Glass Edge Deletion Wheel.
- Convenient and offers an easy glass decoating process.
- It removes the metal coatings from Low-E coated glass
- Mainly used for edge deletion process for Low-E glass
- Contributes a lot in the adhesion part of the space bar
- Creates glossy surface finish in any glass type like safety glass, patterned glass, and many more
5. Low-E Glass Edge Deletion Wheel Process
What is edge deletion? Edge deletion is the process of removing narrow strips of coating around the perimeter or edge of the size of the glass. This will be used in making insulated glass units or laminated glass. Using the edge deletion wheel, the process involves the stripping or removal of a soft coat. How does the glass being stripped? First, the edge deletion wheel runs across the glass jumbo on a CNC-controlled bridge. With a speed of around 2000 rpm, the grinding head motor spins the wheel and pushes it against the glass surface anywhere ranging from 1 to 3 bar of pressure. The wheel removes the coating when the cutting head travels across the glass surface in a pre-programmed pattern. The grinding head pressure, wheel’s rotational speed, and traverse speed are three important key points you should always remember when you use Edge Deletion Wheel.
Low-E Glass Edge Deletion Wheel Partner Tools and Machines
The Low-E glass edge deletion wheel can also be used with some tools and machines. This will make the deletion process much efficient, faster, and quality-made. Here are some partner tools and machines you can use together with the Low-E glass edge deletion wheel.
Portable Low-E Glass Coating Edge Deletion Handheld Tools
This Low-E glass edge deletion handheld tool will be a great partner with the Low-E glass edge deletion wheel. You won’t worry about its weight because it is light and can easily be carried.

Semi-Automatic Glass Coating Low-E Edge Decoating Machines
This machine will make the decoating process much easier using the Low-E edge deletion wheel. It is categorized as a semi-automatic operation machine, with one-to-two-wheel spindles available. This machine is very much convenient because the glass or the decoating spindle moved during the glass edge deletion process.
Why Glass Edge Deletion Wheel is Necessary:
Due to being energy-saving and environmentally friendly, Edge Deletion Wheel becomes more important in architectural and building industries. Low-e coating is a very delicate thin film depositing on the glass surface. Therefore, Low-E glass is always insulated with another piece of glass. Low-e coating always faces the inner side of double glazing. The space is either ordinary dry air or filled up with inert gas. The dry air or inert gas would not corrode the Low-E coating. This protects Low-E coating from corrosion.
The spacer between two pieces of glass is always separated by a spacer bar. Spacer bars could be aluminum, steel, stainless steel, reinforced plastic, or rubber. Due to its excellent moisture-proof, butyl is chosen to be the adhesive to seal between spacer bar and glass. However, the adhesion between butyl and Low-E coating does not perform well. Consequently, it is always required to remove the Low-E coating around the edges of the glass. This process is known as Low-E edge deletion. After Low-E edges are deleted, glass edges are exposed. Butyl gets in direct contact with the glass. This allows the adhesion in the best performance.
The Low-E Glass Edge Deletion Wheel only tells us that it is now the next generation tool for glass coating removal, polishing, and glass surface processing for Low-E glass materials. With its high-quality cutting feature, getting a glossy surface finish will be achieved in no time.
