Forvet is a name respected all around the world for their innovative, purpose-built glass fabrication equipment.

Forvet’s highly specialized machines are designed to solve some of the unique problems facing today’s glass fabricators, including rapid and precise drilling and milling (the Forvet "Francesca") and edge processing (the Forvet "Chiara").

These machines have set the standard for glass processing and are the machines of choice for advanced glass fabricators.

 

Forvet was founded in 1990 in Volvera, Italy, where it continues to benefit from the high technology Automotive and Aerospace industries in the area.

Forvet offers innovative automation and products to allow for full automated glass processing. From automatic loading of raw glass to automatic unloading of the processed glass. There are no requirements for operating assistance.

Optimized for glass milling, drilling and polishing with horizontal double-sided capabilities. 

Manufacturing solutions for structural, shower doors, architectural mirrors, facades, backsplash and partition walls.

Chiara

  • Produces out of square glass....the future is finally here

  • Grinds and polishes all four sides of the glass simultaneously to produce a "10" rated polished edge

  • Able to be connected to the Francesca 3300 to create a "Gamechanger" line
     

Chiara MultiFlex

  • Process of 2 glass sides, even out of square, simultaneously

  • Machine footprint equal to 1/3 of comparable traditional machine

  • Possibility to operate different edge finish on same glass

  • The machine has been conceived to operate on extra large glass up to 18.000 mm. or to perform 2 glasses simultaneously doubling the output

  • and much more...

FORBOT DYNAMIC SORTING AND LOADING/UNLOADING SYSTEM

FORBOT is a patented glass handling automatic system, without the need of any additional operator intervention

  • It creates an automatic connection between the working zone (grinding, drilling and milling), and the following processes (tempering, printing, etc)

  •  It temporarily disjoins the upstream and downstream zones, managing a buffer of configurable dimension 

  •  It optimizes the glass sheet load on the tempering oven

  •  It selects the glass located on the rack and insert it on the following work-bench

  •  Completely automatic system

  •  Optimized cycle times

  •  Breaking risk reduction VS manual handling

SORTIFLEX

Forvet Sortiflex Glass storage system
  • The Sortiflex is the Forvet answer to glass flow sequencing control and optimization requirements.

  • It has been designed to meet the flexibility requirements of various processes thus it can works within Forvet machineries or integrated with all the other major equipment in flat glass field

  • It works as temporal buffer to optimize glass flows from different origin toward single output, or as single origin toward multiple outputs.

  • The patented double decks storage area improve, by doubling, the number of available slots in the same foot print thus increasing the storage area without requesting more factory floor space.

  • The extremely fast and reliable cycle time, allows various processes to be directly linked in full automatic mode.

  • It can process Low E glass
