Company Profile

Receptive to any business requirements of the market  and to the search for automation to increase productivity, Elettromeccanica Bovone Srl has enlarged its range of products offering also BRS: Bovone Robotic Systems. The robots can be supplied as stand alone, integrated to existing edging machines or sold as customized islands with nr 2 machines and nr 2 robots to match and satisfy any customer’s need. The BRS Bovone Robotic System is now Patent pending.

Products & Information

ELB 11/45 AUTOMATIC EDGING MACHINE

THE NEW ELB 11/45 AUTOMATIC GRINDING MACHINE BY BOVONE: AUTOMATION IS THE KEY TO SUCCESS

The ELB 11/45 AUTOMATIC straight-line edger from Bovone guarantees high and constant quality of the finish of both the flat edge and the miter, high degree of automation, great speed and ease of use.

The Bovone R&D department has engineered an innovative machine that allows the operator greater ease of use, automating the adjustment of the grinding wheels to keep the quality of the finish constant throughout the whole process.

The technological focus of the innovation was to create an active control system for the wear of all the grinding wheels through an actuation on each motor: the automatic system compensates for the reduction in height through a powerful software equipped with an intuitive and easy-to-use HMI. Once the parameters have been set, operator intervention will no longer be required to control the process.

With the automation of each motor spindle, the adjustment is carried out through a remote control by selecting one or more wheels from the display.Machine maintenance also benefits from this innovation: the presetting process of wheels replacement is managed automatically with a simple input. Once the grinding wheel has been replaced (a signal warns the operator when wheel ends), the machine repositions the motor by itself in the correct position.

A further milestone deposited by Bovone on the path of technological excellence in the world of glass processing.

BRS - BOVONE ROBOTIC SYSTEM

The Bovone Robotic System offers automated integration for grinding, providing the perfect solution to optimize production.

The BRS system integrates straight-line edging machines with articulated, multi-axis robots, ranging in different load and application capacities. 

Bovone has served as an Official System Partner with robotics producer Kuka Robotics for years.  BRS adheres perfectly to Industry 4.0 protocols: the islands work without the presence of personnel and can be fully integrated for traceability and self-regulation of production parameters.

The robotic integration allows a considerable increase in productivity, with a reduction in costs and greater safety for the operator when handling large slabs.

The use of robotic elements produced by companies in the market increases the levels of safety and reliability, and increases after-sales assistance. With a view to safety and productivity, Bovone has created grippers with reduced weight and dimensions that allow to impact less on the load capacity of the robot, thus enhancing the performance in terms of speed (25% less) and energy saving during the processing of particularly heavy slabs.

The robots can be supplied stand-alone, applied to existing edgers or as customized robotic islands based on specific needs.
