Visitors could see two production lines on display: our feature model, the mitering machine Rock 14-45, which represents our heritage combined with modern development in straight line edging machines and the second generation of the vertical CNC working centres Quickline Series, with drilling, milling and washing.
Quickline is composed of two units for processing, shower screens, glass doors, glass partitioning, balustrades, and glass splash backs. The first in the line is the Quickdrill, for drilling holes and countersinking. The Quickmill is the second machine, for executing notches, hinge cut outs, and internal portholes.
Both machines will work over the entire surface area, with unmatched speed and accuracy.
The Open Top structure allows ‘oversized’ glass to be processed. The Quickline Series is intended to benefit the market sector where a traditional horizontal CNC is both unnecessary and overly expensive, yet precision, speed and accuracy are paramount. Each machine in the line can run independently, or in conjunction for maximum productivity.
Clever computing through Quickflow, means information can be separated for independent operation, or combined to run sequentially.
While our first series of Quickline was successful, the latest generation has proved even more effective with the implementation of new hardware and software, allowing integration into you own company processes. By connecting to data from ‘in house’ ERP systems, the client can maximize the huge production potential. For example a typical glass door can be processed (drilled, notched, and milled) in as little as 3½ minutes. The modest investment easily returns the lowest cost per notch.
Even with minor integration and programming on board the machine, the latest Quickline now offers many advantages, due mainly to the flexible and easily customized programming system. This is especially suited to manufacturing parametric doors.
Quickmill and Quickdrill have also been upgraded to incorporate a remote assistance system. This not only allows ‘off site’ diagnosis and problem solving, but also enables software and program updates, even without the use of a local dedicated PC.
The Quickline Series is an extremely well manufactured machine. All axes are driven by brushless motors, while some of the components have been made lighter with the use of aluminum. External guards are a brushed stainless steel finish as standard.
Also the latest model of mitering machines with 14 wheels, Rock 14-45 was officially launched at Vitrum. This version can process a flat and arrissed edge, and a chamfer up to 45°, at the same time.
The booth was completed by showing off the LV Top vertical washing machine. This model represents the most sold entry level washer in the world, especially in markets that are sensitive to good quality. In fact, it combines simplicity with reliability, advanced technical solutions and the highest quality construction and components.
During the exhibition, we arranged to take customers on a ‘tour’ of our factory in Rovello Porro. Here we showed them: the horizontal washer Tornado 2664, the vertical CNC Centres Promax and Drillmax, the straight line edger Rock 11.
All of these machines were demonstrated working in our factory. Visitors have seen the high quality finished products, our robust construction methods, and the highest standard of components used in manufacturing by Neptun srl.
