Beveling of glass in the name of quality and convenience according to Bovone: the 251 and 252 models

The state of the art in beveling of glass was defined by Bovone in 1974, when the company introduced the first linear beveling machine to the market, thus revolutionizing the beveling of glass process, which, until then, was performed mainly in manual mode. Thanks to this innovation, Bovone reduced the time required to make the […]

Difference Between Cuvette and Test Tube

The key difference between cuvette and test tube is that the cuvette has two straight sides whereas the test tube has no straight sides. Further, cuvettes and test tubes have different applications and chemical compositions as well. Both cuvette and test tube have common use in analytical chemistry as equipments for analysis. Both these are […]

Hybrid technology laminated glass oven is Bovone’s new milestone in state-of-the-art glass lamination processes.

Bovone’s new hybrid technology laminated glass oven currently and in anticipation of the coming years represents state-of-the-art equipment designed to provide maximum versatility during the glass lamination process. The glass laminating oven uses hybrid technology that integrates two heating systems that are completely independent of each other: a convection oven for laminated glass that integrates […]

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 […]

Bovone stone straight-line edgers: discover how the pluses of the Stonedge 15/45 and Stonedge 15/45 radius models adhere to the needs of kitchen countertop manufacturers

The Stonedge 15/45 and Stonedge 15/45 Radius models represent the natural evolution of the Stonedge 11/45 model in the panorama of stone straight-line edgers. Among the range of straight-line edging machines for stone, the Stonedge 15/45 model is particularly suitable for the processing of kitchen countertops because, in addition to the possibility of simultaneous edging […]

Silica Group of Silicate Minerals

Quartz was the mineral upon which the Stone Ages were based. With few exceptions, most early stone tools were fashioned of quartz. Outcrops of quartz that were suitable for tool manufacturing were targeted by some of the earliest known mining activities and the mined quartz was traded across vast distances, even before humans began to […]
