Ceramics, Glass, Brick & Stone


Ceramics, brick and glass are some of the most demanding manufacturing environments: high loads, fragile products, abrasive materials and extremes of temperature.

Ceramics, brick and glass - what role do we play in the industry?

Whether you are conveying, cutting, polishing or printing, Megadyne has a range of products that covers all these needs and most common applications:

  • Grinding machines
  • Cutting lines
  • Beveling lines
  • Polishing lines
  • Drilling lines
  • Tempering lines

For glass applications — which require very different belting features than ceramic, brick, and stone — we offer water-resistant, abrasive-resistant options. Both edge rounding and polishing processes involve a high presence of water. Our belts allow for safe, consistent cutting of float glass, as well as efficient etching, tempering, beveling, and assembly.

For brick applications, timing belts are commonly utilized to convey materials in parallel paths. The belts, which are spaced apart from one another, move the uncured bricks through an oven before continuing along in the production process.

Success Stories

  • Tile Manufacturing
  • Glass Manufacturer
  • Ceramic tile production represents one of the most demanding manufacturing environments. 

    In ceramic tile production, a pair of timing belts is commonly utilized in a parallel path arrangement where the belts act as a conveyor moving the uncured tile through the production process. A very important step in the process is the shaping of the tiles, which is done by conveying the raw material through a press. High positional accuracy is required to ensure the best tile quality as many styles have intricate designs. The application demands a belt with repeatable, precise synchronous movement as well as a strong system for attaching the plates used to move the tiles, further guaranteeing precise positioning of the tiles.

  • Glass sheets transferred from production to stacking were still warm. As a result, glass stuck to the belts, leaving the belts’ herringbone cover as an impression on the product. This required the manufacturer to remove the marking from the glass before shipping. In some cases, glass went into the market, which led to customer complaints. To address the situation, the manufacturer had to slow production and introduce a cleaning method. This led to increased production costs and lower glass production output.
