The technologies used within the company are linked to the glass transformation process, with all the resulting applications such as safety glass, noise-proof glass, heat and sound insulation glass, but also walkable glass, glass coverings, doors, parapets, lifts and entire façades. Novavetro's glass machining experience combines perfectly with Intermac technologies: thanks to this collaboration the company has been able to create a highly specialised, technological and unique system. This has notably boosted production quality and constitutes a guarantee for the company's future.
“We purchased our first Intermac machine in 1995, a Master machining centre, followed by other machining centres, double-sided machines and cutting benches, creating a complete cutting and grinding line”, says Lucentini. Intermac came up with a specific layout for the configuration of the Novavetro factory, made to measure and based on the needs dictated by the production process, with the result that job orders that would have been hard to handle in the past can now be managed without problems: “we saw straight away that this line was unique and precise, and really simplified our production”, continues Lucentini. In fact it enables the glass to be ground, bored and tempered within the integrated line created, without having to unload and reload the sheet. Thanks to this system, Novavetro has been able to carry through one of its most challenging projects: curved, shaped glass roofs for two shopping centres.
With Intermac we've estabilished this important collaborative relationship. With our ideas and their ability to produce systems, this production line was created, which is obviously very special and unique.
