The new challenge for the glass industry is to keep pace with increasing demands for productivity and flexibility by remaining competitive. This entails a new entrepreneurial spirit, investments and, above all, a reconsideration of the corporate organization.
For over 60 years Bottero S.p.A. has been responding to these challenges with professionalism and expertise, thanks to its proven experience in integrated glass handling and storage systems, in cutting systems for float and laminated glass, beside the technologies 4.0 combined with AI.
With over 200 plants for the float glass production, Bottero is the “unmissable” partner for all those that produce and transform the glass.
Being the global indisputable leader in the field of cutting tables, Bottero S.p.A. expresses itself at its best in the integrated systems of storing, handling, cutting and processing of glass (grinding and drilling also in shape) with a wide range of products.
Some of our proposals:
- Automatic warehouse equipped with aerial overhead gantry systems;
- Shuttle system for the automatic feeding of cutting lines;
- Automatic stocking system of rest pieces;
- High-performing cutting line 548LAM X-Y for laminated glass;
- Automatic cutting lines for laminated glass and float glass (363BCS);
- Automatic robotized area with automatic unloading on A-racks, L-racks and harp racks
The EVO cutting platform is the top of the range Bottero cutting systems, offering exclusive performance and flexibility. Thanks to the option of equipping the machines with two additional tools besides the cutting tool, the EVO systems can be equipped, in addition to the low-e glass grinding, for example, for laser cutting or labelling of the processed piece. This option makes the EVO systems ideal for forming part of the automated and controlled production flow, which is typical in advanced glass factories and set forth in the “Industry 4.0” regulation.
The EVO range stands out due to its modularity and versatility, thanks to which the float cutting tables can be totally configured according to specific customer requirements: from stand-alone cutting tables intended for small productions, up to intensive high automation level production systems, fully integrated with Low-E grinding devices and marking, and loading and breakout modules.
Each constructive and functional feature of the EVO range is designed to ensure extreme processing precision and maximum productivity, at the service of each specific production requirement.

Lamination of flat and bent glass of various sizes, shapes and thicknesses.
Lamination of glass/marble and glass/ceramic combinations, with the possibility of perfect drying of materials.
The kiln is divided into independent chambers. The low section chambers are dedicated to the classic lamination of glass sheets, while a higher section chamber allows the laminating of special pieces, curved glass, and the drying of marble slabs for subsequent lamination.
Our Battellino SRM 2000 is a sealing robot designed for small to medium-sized businesses looking to add more automation to their insulating glass production capabilities. Windows continue to get larger and heavier, making hand-sealing much more difficult, time-consuming, and costly. Operators will enjoy how easy and safe the machine is, in addition to the simple maintenance requirements. This solution will save you time and money and improve the quality of the IG products you can provide to your customers! Quickly and easily seal double or triple glazed units with a maximum glass size of 3000mm by 2000mm and thickness of 3mm to 12mm.
We will have the SRM 2000 at GlassBuild and will be offering demos each day of the show at Booth #2441.
The Erdman® OMRC (One Man Robotic IG Cell) IG Line has been designed to only require one operator. While safety and ergonomics for operators has always been our top priority in developing equipment, the COVID-19 outbreak has inspired us to think outside the box with the concept of the Erdman® OMRC. This IG line will allow for maximum social distancing, safety, and IG output with only one operator.
Matodi will showcase Neptun’s Rock with AWA and Parallelogram device at GlassBuild 2021. The latest addition to our ever evolving and reliable straight-line edger is a support trolley that will allow you to edge non-rectangular shapes by keeping them in a safe and workable position. With this option you will be able to process up to four pieces on non-rectangular glass simultaneously (up to 2600mm in height, 21mm thickness, and a 40° angle). Our Rocks now include AWA as a standard feature because customers love the fully automated management of all the wheels on the edger, including the diamond wheels, polish wheels, and the arris wheels. Since no operator wheel adjustment is required, consistent production and quality regardless of the operator’s level of experience are assured. Come experience the quality of the Rock at Booth #2441.
US Centrifuge's Model GO-512S-280 is the perfect solution for coolant processing and filtration for the glass industry. Keeps coolants clean to improve efficiency, effectiveness and extends coolant life to provide a stable process. Providing easy connection to the process, the GO-5125-280 continuously cleans process coolant removing particulate as small as 0.5 micron in size while a flow of 110 percent capacity gives constant filtering even when the coolant flow from the process is stopped. The large capacity basket has a removeable stainless steel liner for ease of cleaning. The continuous circulation and cleaning improves process stability while prolonging the life of the coolant and grinding pads.
The new QX-GTH glass tempering furnace from Xinglass has advanced automatic functions that can largely help reduce the production cost and labor cost. It is designed for various glass types, including clear glass, patterned glass, sandblasted glass, coated glass, concave-convex glass, tinted glass, hard-coated glass and soft-coated Low-E glass. The tempered glass meets standards ANSI Z97.1, EN 12150-1:2000, GB15763.2-2005, and the tempering standard of JIS R 3206.
In need of meeting the customers’ needs for more reliable and flexible control for the heating process, the control system has integrated a new intelligent heating control algorithm. It ensures heat is evenly distributed with 10 percent accuracy improvement. The QX-GTH glass tempering furnace uses high heat-resistance insulation materials. It improves the heating performance and the quality of tempered glass. In addition, Xinglass’ air convection technology realized uniform temperature distribution under different loading modes.
The quenching section of the newly designed tempering furnace is a big innovation as well. This new design uses the inertia of the blower impellers for cooling the glass. It can cool down the glass in various ways, which minimizes the waste of energy from the rotation of blower impellers. With the usage of advanced separate quenching technology, the furnace not only ensures the tempering quality but also achieves the purpose of energy-saving. The optimized quenching process reduces most product defects for soft coating and hard coating low-E glass. This technology is well received by glass fabricators.
