HE NEWRUBI 406VA. ORE CE.

The first tool is intended for cutting glass from 1.8 millimetres to 2 millimetres thick. The second and third tools are used for glass from 2 millimetres to 12 millimetres, which are the most common thicknesses. The fourth tool uses a larger diameter wheel to cut glass from 12 millimetres, 15 millimetres, 19 millimetres and 25 millimetres. Another aspect that guarantees reliability and precision in each of its movements is the gantry transmission system. The RUBI406VA model has two motors, one on each side of the cutting bridge. These are connected directly to the pinion and the pinion to the rack, providing greater power and facilitating the movement of the bridge along the side guides. In addition, it uses an oversized, self-lubricating, trapezoidal double-guided transmission system that prevents contact losses, withstands stress better and increases precision and resistance to inertia. The cutting bridge has been specially designed by the Turomas engineering team and made from extruded aluminium, a lightweight material that allows greater speed and acceleration to be achieved. All its components, from the profile through the guides to the slides, are oversized to increase the useful life and support the weight of the tool, as well as the accelerations and inertias derived from the movement. It has a two parallel guideways system with a linear accuracy of hundredths of a degree that promotes smooth movement, reduces noise, increases durability and enables the motors to move larger loads. Optional Features As an option, the RUBI 406VA model incorporates an innovative, high-performance, self-calibrating decoating system for Low-E glass, Low-E glass with plastic protective coating (TPF) and EASYPRO®. This system is able to remove the protective coating from the glass in a single pass, improving cycle time and reducing grinding wheel wear. In addition, the

new development incorporates an advanced vacuum technique that eliminates any residue resulting from the stripping process. In addition to the decoating system, TUROMAS complements the RUBI 406VA line with an automatic labelling system of both glass parts and scraps. It is integrated into the cutting bridge and moves with the tool, resulting in high printing and application speeds. The labelling system is extremely robust, making it immune to inertia caused by machine movement and acceleration. The labelling process can be carried out by contact or by blowing, so that coconut dust is completely removed and the adhesion of the label is improved. The new model in combination with the Rack-Shuttle SR storage systems forms a production system capable of meeting the needs of the most demanding processor and, at the same time, adapting to virtually any space and type of glass. This type of machinery has established itself on the market as the new intelligent storage system thanks to its flexibility, modularity and production rate. The RUBI 406VA, on the other hand, loads the glass sheets directly from the warehouse rack, optimising space and allowing the area not used by the automatic loader to be used to increase the storage capacity of the system. The combination of the two machines offers a simple and cost-effective alternative for autonomously storing, loading and cutting glass with up to 300% higher throughput. www.turomas.com/en/
