After specific and increasing requests coming for the glass industry, we have recently invested in Research & Development in order to design two TLR models, the 13 and the 15 wheels, so that they could carry a maximum weight of 1.500 Kg as well as process up to 100 mm glass thickness.
This improvement has been possible thanks to some structural changes, mainly linked to the application of new pads (220 mm long instead of the previous 195 mm) and toughened guides (220 mm high instead of the previous 200 mm).
In order to simplify the identification of the wide range of models which represent our current offer of straight-line edging machines, we have then decided to gather up these two special models into a brand-new series named TLS.
This family has grown up very quickly considering that from the first two models above mentioned it has been thereafter enriched through the addition of many other models offering various solutions, from the 13 to the 16 wheels.
Our TLS machines, as well as all other Adelio Lattuada models have an optimal duration/cost ratio. This is a very important characteristic that is always fundamental for glassworks because of their need of machines with a long working life. In fact, there are Lattuada machines still working after 20 years and with up to two million metres processed, while the average working life is normally about five to six years if quality and production levels have to be maintained.
At our booth at Vitrum fair (Pav. 22P - Booth G01-K02) we will introduce to our guests two TLS models and precisely a TLS 13 AV C SP100 and a TLS 16 AV C SP55.
Another special place in our booth will be left for our double edger model BETA 10, first machine of a series that will soon count many models. Double edger for the processing of the flat edge with arris with 10 cup wheels (and possibility to add one corner cutting spindle) on each side, our model BETA 10 is equipped with an automatic system of glass squaring and centring and also with a colour touch-screen panel, conceived in order to help the machine's check, use and maintenance.
Thanks to this panel the operator can carry out the automatic and/or manual positioning of the following axes:

Moreover, this device counts a very useful series of functions such as the recording of the most frequent processing, of the processed metres and many others.
The main strong points of our double edger are the modern technologies used and therefore the simple and quick setting and positioning. For this reason it is particularly suitable also for small production lots.
