GLASSTEC 2018: INTEGRATION, AUTOMATION AND CUSTOM SOLUTIONS AT BAVELLONI BOOTH
Bavelloni launched the “Fully Integrated Solutions” concept at glasstec 2018: innovative tailor- made systems, combining different equipment and offering productivity, efficiency and safety.
On show, a robotic island featuring a straight-line mitering machine VE500 V10 with robotic loading/unloading system which attracted the attention of many visitors. This edger was equipped with the new presetting system, developed to avoid manual positioning of the wheels as they wear out, very useful to minimize the operator’s intervention. The fully automatic glass handling was ensured by an anthropomorphic robot sliding on a guiderail and synchronized with the edging machine working speed, automatically loading, rotating and unloading glass.
This automation highly streamlines manpower, increases efficiency and ensures a safe, reliable and fast manipulation of the glass sheets.
At the booth, Bavelloni also showcased the latest version of HE500 12 3000: the stand-alone double edger with cup wheels to grind flat edge with arrises. Visitors were positively impressed by the main novelties introduced such as: a new HD 18,5’’ touch-screen control panel with keyboard, very compact and user-friendly; new intuitive graphics with icons and drawings for a dynamic interface; corner cutting spindle with possibility of varying the width of the corners from control panel and embedded electrical box for optimized machinery footprint and ergonomics. HE500 was provided with many options granting automatic and smooth integration with other equipment. Bavelloni double edgers, highly reckoned on the market and recognized as top of the range machinery, make Bavelloni a first-choice supplier.
On display also, NRG 330 PJ working center featuring exclusive solutions very much requested on the market. Bavelloni has developed robotic systems also in combination with numeric control machines that can ensure very high production rates in the household appliances and in the refrigeration fields. Thanks to the reliability of the working centers, these plants are a perfect solution for very high production environments.
Several live demos were also run on the vertical drilling and milling machine VDM 1636 CN, on show, as well. This equipment gathers all drilling, milling, counter-sinking, notching operations together in a single working station. The model at glasstec was equipped with drilling bit presetting and redressing (available as optional devices) ensuring a higher level of automation.
“In response to the increasing market’s demand for integration and automation, Bavelloni has presented flexible and unique solutions, to meet customers’ specific needs,” explains Sergio Valsecchi (Bavelloni SpA Partner), and adds “On Bavelloni booth a high footfall was registered, even higher than the past edition, especially from Europe – above all Spain, Portugal, Germany, Belgium Poland, Hungary and the Baltic republics -, Latin America, the USA and Australia. The customers showed concrete interest towards Bavelloni machinery and services. Many deals were finalized during the show and interesting negotiations were conducted.”
