Belfortglass began its operations in 1971, with the development of butyl extruders and extruders for mono and bi-component glazing sealants; it began diversification a few years later, with the production of diamond tools.
The flagship product of the range is the H/505/B or S/505/B model, an hydraulic extruder for two-component sealants,which features a hydraulic extrusion system conferring a particular resilience, thereby enhancing the functional capacity of the products themselves. Belfortglass began diversification in 1979 with the production of glass processing diamond tools; then, it rapidly expanded and developed the various types of tools (with different measurements and with either metallic or resin sealants for a host of machine models). Belfortglass produces wheels for straight line flat and pencil edgers, double flat and pencil edgers, and bevelling machines for prismatic mirrors as well as numeric control machines, the true distinguishing features of its production being the high quality level, excellent working speeds and flexibility of use.
Thanks to its over 30 years of experience in the field, the company is able to offer a specific combination of diamond tools for each individual machine, all with particular features tested directly on site in various applications.
In 2003, it acquired Zanetti Macchine, a well-established company with a good reputation in the production of glass processing machinery, distinguishing features being the use of a simplified technology and high-precision mechanics.Belfortglass today continues the production of two machine models: model BK2, a semiautomatic machine for the edge grinding and bevelling of shaped glass sheets, and the Diamatic model, designed specifically for edging operations.
The primary characteristics of Belfortglass are its flexibility and reliability, which translates into customer satisfaction, assured thanks to ongoing improvement in terms of quality and design innovation, as well as excellent product research and development operations.
The true strong point of the company lies in its capacity to understand customer needs in order to provide efficient solutions combining high-tech input with a thorough knowledge and experience in market needs.
The new generation of Belfortglass today is headed by the son of Enrico Bovone, Mauro, who is the current company owner and sales manager, taking over the helm from his father, after over forty years of impeccable service to his company.
Being aware that tackling today’s competitive and continually evolving market requires dedicated commitment and effort especially in research, development and infrastructure, he embarked on a company modernization programme, including the updating of the factory premises as well as the further expansion of the product range.
The aim is to enhance products performance, in order to always be able to assure the best solution for the customers, helping them to fulfil their objectives with greater efficiency.
