Hall 16 / Stand F20After the general curiosity generated at Glasstec 2002, followed by exceptional commercial results, at Glasstec 2004, Forvet, based in Turin, northern Italy, will be presenting Chiara, an innovative glass-processing machine on today’s market.

The important innovation, besides the simultaneous grinding of four edges that makes the Chiara the only grinding machine created to automatically correct dimensional imperfections in cutting while making the loading sequence irrelevant, is the new development of the machine.Glass with max sizes 4600 x 2500 mm is now polished by the Chiara.Moreover, the particular configuration of the machine itself makes it able to process low-E glass without any contact with the coated surface.The process, integrated with the glass thickness sensing, with its unique ability to process different glass dimensions and thickness in sequence, without adjustments, makes Chiara unique.In addition to this a further new entry in the production range of Forvet will be the arrising machine. This model developed with the Chiara technology will allow the seaming of any glass thickness and size without requesting any set up and without data entry. Once the glass has been loaded, the machine reads automatically size and thickness and adjusts itself automatically.

Moreover, at Forvet’s stand at Glasstec, there will be the company’s standard production line:
NC working centres for drilling, countersinking and milling operations and the new Francesca 32M NC Working centre with 32 spindles! The new technical solutions applied, allow this machine to process a glass 3210x6000mm with milling, countersinking and drilling operations with completely automatic cycle without touching the glass surface. (Low e-glass)
The new transport system (patented Forvet) is based on the vacuum dynamic concept, which maintains the glass on his longitudinal axis in movement.
The machine is equipped with 32 spindles, divided on the four drilling heads: therefore, four different tool diameters can be used simultaneously, drastically reducing the cycle time.
The main flexibility is achieved when processing two different glass panels at the same time!
The project of the Francesca 32M foresees all the possible loading configurations according to the productive process. It is possible to load glasses directly from grinding machines in line or manually with automatic sequences or both simultaneously.
The machine conception maintains all the main characteristic of the Forvet working centres as: no minimum distance between the holes, max drilling diameter 70 mm. max glass thickness 25 mm., automatic tools wear compensation, automatic lubricating system etc.
Francesca 32 M is equipped with the most advanced electronics technologies and its CNC manages 32 axes totally.
It is, therefore, imperative to plan the time spent on the fair, in order to verify and discuss with Forvet’s staff, the possibility of improvements that are available for drilling, profiling, countersinking and grinding process that this company offers.
