New options for Battellino robot for double glazing


- BAR CODE READER: this allow to the customer to create bar codes that can give the machines all the information about: Type of frame ( aluminum stainless steel) thickness of the 1^ 2^ and in case of triplex 3^ glass; Thickness of the frame; information if the glass is a simple double of a triplex.

- SHAPED GLASS a special environment on the panel ( see attachments) allow the customer to choose from different kind of shapes of glass to work.

- MONUMENTAL GLASS opportunity to work also frames of only 4 mm, this device is particularly interesting for the companies that work with restoration of old buildings. Really interesting because this kind of glasses are really difficult to job well also manually.

-SPEED faster then in the pass the new version runs at 18 mt/min also the working of the corners was modified to run faster ( a glass of 100x80cm can be done in approximately 45 sec.

- NEW TOUCH SCREEN PANEL if in the older machines were equipped with a commercial PC, the new models are equipped with an Industrial panel, more powerful and more reliable, like in the past, also this new touch can be delivered in the language of the customer.

- NEW PUMPS thanks to a new supplier that helped us creating with us a special pump for our robot we have had the opportunity to offer the robot with a better price

- 4.0 MACHINE the machine can be certificated as 4.0 industrial machines that means higher score to access to European founds.

1. The name of the Geographical Indication

"Marble Stones of Rhône-Alpes"

2. The product (s) concerned

The Marbrières Stones of Rhône-Alpes are limestones formed in the Jurassic era and the Lower Cretaceous era, extracted in quarries located in a geographical area defined in point 3.

As an indication, the average values ​​of the physical and mechanical characteristics of the main Stones Marbrières of Rhône-Alpes are:

• Density value (NF EN 1936): between 2500 kg / m3 and 2810 kg / m3

• Open porosity value (NF EN 1936): between 0.3% and 3.0%;

• Flexural strength under center load (NF EN 12372): between 9.5 MPa and 23 MPa;

• Compressive strength (either NF EN 1926 or NF EN 772-1): between 139 MPa and 250 MPa;

• Wear resistance (NF EN 14157): between 18 mm and 35 mm.


The non-exhaustive list of different limestone materials that can claim the protection of the IG "Stones Marbrières de Rhône Alpes" is presented below:

• Chandoré Stone / Champdor

• Pierre de Chomérac

• Drom Stone / Revermont Stone / Chandolin Stone

• Grand Corent Stone / Yellow Valore

• Pierre de Hauteville

• Pierre de Labeaume

• Pierre Rocheret / Pierre-Châtel / Silver Roc

• Pierre de Romanèche / Pierre de Hautecourt

• Ruoms stone

• Saint-Baudille stone

• Pierre de Villebois / Montalieu

The geographical indication covers the following products:

at. Raw products: blocks extracted from quarries for cut stone, construction and decoration;

b. Semi-finished products: slices and products being finished;

c. Finished products, classified by family:

 New and old building (massive cut elements, thin elements, etc ...);

 Roads, urban and landscaping (Pavers of all types, slabs of all types, borders of all types, street furniture, landscape furniture, etc ...);

 Funeral (monuments and funerary articles, columbarium, etc ...);

 Any decorative furniture and real estate product (such as interior furniture etc ...).

Made from natural materials produced by extraction and processing processes except for any reconstituted and / or composite materials or products.

The finished product loses Geographical Indication at the first stage of the process outside the geographical area. Finished product means a product that will not be reworked outside the geographical area.

3. The delimitation of the geographical area or the associated determined place

The geographical area of ​​the IG Pierres Marbrières in Rhône-Alpes covers:

• For extraction operations: the departments of Isère (38) and Ain (01) and the department of Ardèche (07);

• For processing operations: all departments in the Rhône-Alpes region (01, 07, 26, 38, 42, 69, 73 and 74).

The extraction and processing operations of the products covered by the IG Pierres Marbrières de Rhône-Alpes must be carried out in this geographical area.

4. Quality, reputation, traditional know-how or other characteristics of the product concerned that can be attributed essentially to that geographical area or specific place, as well as the elements establishing the link between the product and the geographical area or associated determined place


The list below presents the formation dates of each of the Stones Marbrières of Rhône-Alpes:

• Hauteville: Lower Cretaceous - Valanginian - 136 to 140 Ma

• Chandoré: Lower Cretaceous - Valanginian - from 136 to 140 Ma

• Rocheret: Lower Cretaceous - Valanginian - 136 to 140 Ma

• Chomerac: Jurassic - Portlandian (Tithonian) - 145-150 Ma

• Labeaume: Jurassic - Portlandian (Tithonian) - from 145 to 150 Ma

• Ruoms: Jurassic - Portlandian (Tithonian) - from 145 to 150 Ma

• Drom: Jurassic - Portlandian (Tithonian) - from 145 to 150 Ma

• Grand-Corent: Jurassic - Kimmeridgian - from 150 to 155 Ma

• Villebois: Jurassic - Bathonian - from 168 to 166 Ma

• Saint-Baudille: Jurassic - Middle Bajocian - about 170 Ma

The totality of marble limestones of Rhone-Alps comes from marine deposits. These deposits were made in a sea of ​​tropical and shallow type. The hot temperature of the water favored the deposition of limestone (calcium carbonate). This sedimentation is both biodetitic and chemical, hence the presence of oolites. Some of these rocks then very slightly metamorphosed.

With regard to these parameters (richness in calcium carbonate, presence of oolites and a very slight metamorphism) we obtain a hard rock, compact, fairly homogeneous and "taking good polish". These petrographic characteristics are partly the definition of the ancient term "choin" which can be defined by "limestone (or stone) marbrière".
