Sanding is a process that makes opaque some parts of the glass by applying a high pressure jet of sand. Thanks to this technique, it is possible to create on glass lots of customised logos, drawings and phrases, following the shades and depths required by the customers.
Chamfering is a delicate process that provides particular bevels on glass and crystal in order to give them great value.
In the early years, chamfering was realised with specific stone masses with different grains for each different process. Today, modern machineries have been designed for straight chamfering and are controlled by qualified professionals. For customised shape it is instead still required the ability of expert craftsmen who realise handmade masterpieces.
There are different glass engravings depending on the technique that is used: the simplest are those obtained with the acidic paste, usually more superficial and homogeneous, whereas more sophisticated and deep one are realised using a diamond bit or grinding wheels of various sizes and diameters. Compared to other techniques, this last one leads to elegant and high effect results in shorter time without having to wait for the drying of colours or stucco.

Milling is the process of elimination of roughness on glass edges in order to make the edge not sharp and well-finished.
This process is done with computer numerical control machines or, when it is not possible, it is manually operated by using ancient techniques handed down over time.
Milling may be applied also to coloured glasses in order to avoid excessive thermal shock.
Vetreria Artigiana offers different possibilities of milling according to the requested process:
- round polished thread: for a rounded and shiny edge;
- flat polished thread: for a shiny edge cut on 45°
- rough thread: for an opaque edge with more roughness
- chamfering: glass edges are grind for 10-40 mm in high with an angle of 7° in relation to glass surface.
Drilling are realised with small diamond bits using high-precision machineries. These CNC (computer numerical control) machines are supervised by specialized technicians with the help of monitors. Technicians attend many specialization courses in order to be always up-to-date.
