Taking the  
Stage in Milan  
The Worldwide Glass  
Industry Unveils  
New Innovations at  
Vitrum 2017  
Foursome for Bavelloni  
Bavelloni SpA will highlight four machines. First is the  
Bavelloni NRG 330, a CNC working center available with  
three or four axis, engineered to enhance accessibility, re-  
liability and set-up times. It features the operating head  
fitting Bavelloni electro-spindle,designed and assembled in-  
house,for an accurate quality control and a faster after-sales  
service. It also has a patented PowerJet device that enables  
operators to direct and keep the water jets for the tool’s re-  
frigeration exactly on the contact point with the glass profile.  
This helps ensure longer life and improved consumption of  
tools, increased working speed and minimum set-up times.  
The company will also feature the Bavelloni VDM 1636 NC,  
a new NC vertical drilling and milling machine for automatic  
complex working cycles.It is equipped with one double-drilling  
head (1+1 opposing spindles), each provided with a rotating  
tool storage (eight positions each). Milling is performed while  
the glass is in a fixed position,to achieve what the company calls  
better grinding quality and higher grinding speed.The control  
device combines a professional NC with the convenience of a PC  
operating in a Windows (Microsoft) environment.  
The Bavelloni VE 500 V10 is a straight-line mitering ma-  
chine to process flat edges with arrises and chamfers that  
have variable angles from 0 to 45 degrees. Its patented con-  
veyor allows the processing of thicknesses and glass sizes up  
to 350 kg/m. The machine can be customized with a range  
of options for a variety of application requirements, such  
as higher and longer racks or the jumbo mode function for  
loading big glass sheets while the machine is running.  
Finally,the Bavelloni HE500 11 3000 is a stand-alone dou-  
ble edger with cup wheels to grind flat edge with arrises.  
This series features oversized spindles,transmission-driven  
by brushless motors, and ball screws.  
he international glass industry  
is gearing up for the 20th edi-  
tion of Vitrum 2017. Compa-  
nies from around the world will be at  
the Fiera Milano exhibition complex  
in Rho October 3-6 showcasing their  
latest glass processing and fabrica-  
tion machinery and equipment.  
Exhibitors from 18 countries will  
offer a broad range of products for all  
glass-industry sectors—building and  
construction, industrial glass, furni-  
ture, home furnishings, automotive  
and hollow. Machinery and equip-  
ment will again have a significant  
presence at the show. Here’s a look  
at just some of what companies will  
have to offer. To learn more about the
