Surfaces Group solutions for glass derive from long-standing vocations, expressed by its excellences Adi, RBM Italia and Vincent. From their very beginnings, the three companies have set themselves the goal of developing very advanced and exclusive tools. Thanks to this path, today Surfaces Group enjoys a position of leadership also in this particular sector.
Adi has developed a very wide range of products for the glass industry, which includes cup wheels, including metal bonded and resin bonded types, employed on straight-line and double edging machines, as well as and peripheral wheels for CNC machines. Furthermore, Adi offers a particular specialisation in the solar power and automotive industry, in which the production of special glass and the demands for very high speed execution have led to the development of highly advanced grinding wheels and the formulation of special binders, for which it holds the registered trademark.
RBM Italia made the history of glass finishing tools, developing the first chamfer polishing tool. It has been operating in this sector since the early 60s and it has acquired a worldwide leadership. Its specialisation in polishing wheels has created to a range with over 26 formulations, a vast range of formulations, produced in different shapes and grits: rubber, resin, polyurethane and cerium wheels for edge and arris polishing.
For 50 years, Vincent has specialised in the production of diamond tooling for cutting and grinding glass, but also for working natural stone, agglomerates and ceramic. The solutions proposed by Vincent cover all the processing phases, for the various types of flat, technical, low-emission glass, and are dedicated to the architectural, automotive and optical sectors.
The strengths that make Surfaces Group products well known are the consistency of quality over time, precision and fed rate on the glass plates, the absence of defects on the surfaces and the consequent reduction of manufacturing rejects. In addition to this, Surfaces Group offers longer lasting tools, maximum profile retention and higher productivity. All this translates into an optimised TCO (Total Cost of Ownership) which aims at controlling the real total cost of the finished product. It is here that the Surfaces Group shows its winning qualities.
Furthermore, Surfaces Group can provide the customer with personalised and synergistic solutions, developed to respond to different specific needs, the result of truly unique experience and innovative flair. The tools of the various brands are characterised by the consistency of their performance, which remains high throughout the life cycle.
