Some figures on the last Glasstec.

 

The show held in October 2018 in Dusseldorf saw a growth of almost 5% in the number of visitors, slightly lower than the records of 2012 and 2014.

 

The show is truly an international fair with more than 70% of visitors coming from abroad.

On the other hand the number of exhibitors is in withdrawal (figures not given by the organizer) with some hall not completely filled

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.

Technical news for Battellino Italian machines manufacturer

- STRONGER INLET AND OUTLET ARMS we change the system of inlet and outlet conveyor to allow to our machine to can sustain more weight following the requests of our customers.

- NEW GASKET SYSTEM  to help our customers to maintain in better conditions their machines, we modified the gasket set of our spindles, to avoid more and better any problem of leak of water.

- NEW WIDE TOUCH SCREEN we improved our machine with a multilingual wide touch screen. The panel, equipped with our new software divided into environments,  gives to the operator the opportunity of set easily the speed of work, the thickness of the glass, the operations of the pneumatic motors and the working of the water pump moreover shows to the customer , the total and partial meters worked by the machine, the way of working of the machine in each phase of work, helping him also in the maintenance of the parts.

- NEW SYSTEM OF GUIDES FOR THE DIAMOND AND POLISHING MOTORS,  a new system of guides for the motors give them more stability to improve more possible the quality of the glass.

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.
