Bovone’s robotic system glass processing guarantees more automation and speed

A lot of work in developing a new robotic system glass processing has been done in recent years in Bovone. The result is the BRS Bovone Robotic System for robotic glass processing. This system is designed to automate the production flow of glass edging, making it faster and more automatic. BRS is a robotic glass […]

What is Quartz?

Quartz is a mineral composed of silicon and oxygen, with a chemical composition of SiO2. It is the most abundant mineral in Earth’s crust and is resistant to both chemical and physical weathering. When rocks weather away, the residual material usually contains quartz. This is why the sand at most of the world’s beaches is […]

Glass vs. Crystalline

In ceramic technology the term ‘glass’ is contrasted with the crystalline state, it is seen as a “super-cooled liquid”. When crystalline materials solidify the molecules have opportunity to orient themselves in the preferred pattern during freezing whereas in a glass the random orientation of molecules is frozen into the solid. The most familiar glass in […]
