Sols et Paysages

Très bel ouvrage, écrit par deux passionnés, détaillant les relations entre paysages et types de sols sur une douzaine d’exemples différents.

Ce livre écrit par deux universitaires est très agréable à lire et explique en détails les principaux types de sols que l’on trouve en Europe et leur incidence sur la végétation et l’utilisation des terrains correspondants.

Cet ouvrage décrit de façon détaillée un grand nombre de sols en croisant les observations sur le terrain, les analyses en laboratoire et en s’appuyant sur la bibliographie et l’expérience des deux auteurs. A partie de ces données sont expliquées la formation du sol et ses incidences sur la végétation et l’exploitation des terrains correspondants.

L’incidence de l’habitat, de l’agriculture, de l’exploitation du sous-sol sont prises en compte ainsi que leurs incidences sur le sol.

Une autre partie traite plus en profondeur les usages du sol qu’ils soient urbains, forestiers, agricoles, viticoles ou autres.

Ce livre est abondamment illustré de photos et croquis.

Il s’adresse à tout professionnel ou futur professionnel dans ce domaine ou dans des domaines proches (agriculture, exploitations forestières ou minières…) mais aussi à toute personne convaincue de l’importance du sol et de l’impératif de le protéger.

Very strong growth in Internet sales of wheels for mirrors machines.

Vedip, the first European web site (French origin) Internet sales of Italian wheels for mirrors machines saw its revenues for the second 2019 quarter  increased by more than 67 %.

The strategy developed by Vedip to propose, in partnership with a leading Italian manufacturers of wheels and diamond core drills for glass, very competitive prices  for working only on the Internet, detailed fact sheets with photos, standard wheels made by manufacturers / Machines / Positions, alternative wheels and a telephone support seems to meet the needs of the market in Europe mirrors.

The site already has 1741 tools now online  continues  to improve the technical data of the tools and the number of referenced machinery (over a hundred).

On Vedip you can view the data sheets (with photos and price) of the wheels for the main flat glass processing machines of the market (straight line edging machines, CNC, drills, double edger, chamfering ...) and the most important suppliers (Intermac, Bovone, Glaston, Bavelloni, Lattuada, Schiatti, JANBAC Baudin, Battelino, Denver, Bimatech, Ada, Besana, Bottero ....).

Numerical control machine for flat glass processing

 

The CNC machines for glass are machines able to carry out all kind of jobs. The technology is trustable and the main evolutions have been done.

Because they are able to supply a huge range of different applications you could be interested to invest in a sophisticated machine, even if your market requires only the more common works. In this case you can not have the more convenient machine for the applications you need and moreover the machine will be less easy to drive and less fast.

So the first step is to draw up carefully (number of glass, minimum and maximum dimensions, thickness...) a list about

-the main jobs required by your market (cutting, internal and external polishing, engraving, drilling, writing, bevelling, disk cutting...)

 

-The applications it could be interesting to propose to your customers (number of glass, potential yearly turnover).

 

The idea is to choose the right CNC machine to carry out in the best conditions ( profit, easiness to use, cheapest maintenance) what your market requires.

The market is full of very sophisticated CNC machines where only 10 or 20% of the CNC machine's capacities are used.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Technorev de Bimatech

 

There are on the market 3 different kind of CNC machines depending the number of axes' spindles.

-The 3 axes (XYZ) allowing to carry out the majority of glass processing works ( cutting  with milling cutter, drilling, internal and external polishing, writing...).

-The 4 axes (XYZ et C, axe allowing to drive the working angle for a tools on the vertical axe).

The C axe is mainly useful for engraving glass on the surface, for cutting with a disk ( shape or straight), for simple bevels, to engrave or to write on the glass edge and to obtain a top quality polishing with cup wheels.

 

-The 5 axes, allowing all kind of bevels and other complex works on glass.

 

The number of axes is the first criterion choice.

Be careful: one additional axe mentioned in option needs very often to change the spindle.

The second thing to decide is the maximum dimensions of glass you want to work.

Be careful: on  machine brochure is often mention the  axe's movements and not the useful maximum dimensions.

 

Once these 2 parameters decided, you can have a more precise idea about the machine you need and start to have a look on the potential suppliers.

Now you can study other important parameters:

1/Assistance
-Installation

-In case it is your first machine, or a really new machine or an operator without experience on CNC machine for glass it could be interesting to cut the training in several periods allowing your operator to learn the machine driving in the best conditions. (Be careful about the number of days for real training included inside the offer, and no the total days including installation, adjustment and training. Installation and adjustment can take more than one week).

-Assistance during the first months machine using

To drive properly such a CNC machine, an operator need several months. During this period you need to have a good assistance to learn quickly.

-Maintenance

The problems come mainly from mistake in drawing and programming. In these cases the CNC machine stops. Such problems can be easily solved by phone. A fast and efficient hot line by the CNC machine supplier is essential. But a real hot line. Not one from technician driving or giving another training at a customer premise.

So it is important to understand how your supplier is organized to answer (number of technicians, number of machines installed....)

 

2/The options:

What are the options available during the purchase and after.

The main interesting options are

-Engraving

-Bevelling

-Cutting with disk

-edging with cup wheels

-...

 

3/The software

 

4/The machine preparation

The solutions chosen are very important for the CNC machine productivity

-Installation of the glass on the CNC machine ( suckers positioning, reference pads...)

-Loading, unloading

-How to work with templates

-Adjustment for tools wearing

-…..

 

5/Costs for using (water..) and maintenance

 

 

The bevel

-Due to the glass flexibility, within 12 mm thickness in case of bevelling the glass must be sustained by a rigid and flat surface.

So you have to manufacture a template or to install suckers under the glass all along the part you are going to bevel.

-Such a machine bevels wheel after wheel. It is very slow. To have  a good financial profit you have to carry out sophisticated bevels or to work on important thickness

-The final polishing ( water + cerium oxide)  pollutes the machine water network. The cerium oxide is lost.

-The bevel programming is very often not easy and need an operator with very good experience.
