2Rock seriesRock is located in the medium-high price segment of straight-line edgers market; this value is given by:Performance: Double speed compared to other machines with the same number of spindlesQuality: superior finishing levelPrecision: extreme accuracy and repeatabilityComfort: no vibration, no noise during processingHeavy duty: built to last, years with intensive useWith these features, Rock becomes the most valuable (most convenient, inexpensive) machine, considering lifetime, maintenance costs, productivity and quality added value.
3Rock processing Designed for flat edging with arris Also industrially polished chamfer up to 10mm (Rock 8 and 11), with special metal wheel or high-quality polished chamfer (Rock 10-45)Glass thickness till 40 mmGlass weight up to 2000 Kgs (250 Kgs per meter)
5How is all this technically obtained? Strong know-how and traditionImportant R&D leading to innovative technical solutionsStrong and heavy structureEnhanced automation

7Conveyors belts by chains The conveyors belts are driven by a chain systemRubber part in contact with the glass in long lasting anti-cut materialThe wearing part in contact with the glass can be easily replaced when needed, at a low cost.
8Conveyor on guidesThe concept is based on by pads sliding on guides in tempered steel and stainless steel with an oil film in-betweenThis ensure a long life and a parallel wearing allowing constant quality up to the endGuides are mounted on the structure and replaceable when worn outPads in a material resistant to glass powder abrasionCentralized automatic lubrication system
9Conveyor padsConveyor pads based on a new patented concept with double material:Body in very hard material with excellent mechanical performances (no flections, no thermal dilatations)Part in contact with guides in Kevlar for wear-less performancesThe soft rubber part in anti-spot rubber.No marks on glassReplaceableEasy maintenance
10Spindles driven by belt Spindles and motors are separated and linked by belt systemNo vibration from motor to spindles means better quality and longer spindle lifeRevolution speed perfectly adjusted to the wheel needAll spindles managed from the front sidePermanent lubrication systemno maintenance required

12Electrical cabinetPlaced outside the machine to avoid any type of oxidation of the electrical components caused by moisture coming from the machine. No high voltage on control panel area Allows easy and quick maintenance
13Automatic removal adjustment Glass to be removed is managed by NC trough an Y axis 5mm stroke. The operator can select the removal on the control panel and the inlet conveyor is automatically adjusted No manual hand wheel adjustmentY

18Edge-to-shapeEdge to Shape: the innovative evolution developed by Stefano Bavelloni and PATENTED by Neptun which allows the straight-line edgers of the Rock series to perform edge processing, with control of the final geometry both in terms of angles and final desired dimensions.From irregular to 90°an now also from 90°to a defined irregular shape

21Edge-to-shapeRock evolves from conventional machine into a real CNC machineThanks to CNC solutions, the high precision mechanics, and the new patented conveyor of Rock.Rock can now be used as an alternative in all the processes that, up to today, could be carried out only by CNC machines or double edgers.
22Edge-to-shape Concept: Thanks to the powerful CNC the angle and the length of the glass are measured by a laser systemGlass is introduced by interpolation of Y and C axesMeasure angleMeasure lengthYC
2390° squaring cycle concept Edge-to-shape90° squaring cycle conceptFirst step:Processing of the first edge in order to get a good reference (no need to correct the angle in this phase)Second stepTurn piece 90°and use the first edged side as reference, correct the angle, edge the second one: Angle 1^2 goes 90°Third stepTurn piece 90°and use the second edged side as reference, correct the angle, edge the third one: Angle 2^3 goes 90°Fourth stepTurn piece 90°and use the second edged side as reference, correct the angle, edge the fourth one: Angles 1^2^3^4 go 90°
24Edge-to-shape LimitsGlass can be processed in four cycles (four sides) provided that the maximum removal is 5mm per step, otherwise it has to be introduced more timesGlasses ha to be placed with a minimum distance of 100cm between each other in order to allow all adjustmentsTolerances:0,3mm/m on diagonals0,5mm/m on final dimensionsMaximum angle correction: 0°24’ with standard inlet 0°17’ with 3200mm inlet
25Edge-to-shape What does angle correction 0°24’ or 0°17’ mean? 3mm500mm0°24’3mm765mm0°17’With standard inlet/outletWith 3200mm inlet/outlet
26Edge-to-shape Advantages Possibility to perform processes that are typical for double edging machines without incurring in high investments in terms of capital and required space.Possibility to prepare glass sheets for other processing phases on CNC work centers, limiting the further processing time only to the drilling or milling phases.No set up time, so flexibility and convenience in using it also for single pieces and small batchesPossibility to process multiple glasses simultaneously by job list up to 10 pieces in the same time
27ETS Job listThe operator inserts the dimensions of the glass sheets to be processed in the job list and processes the pieces.Once finished, the CN displays the final obtained dimension, in case of non conformity a red number is shown.In case of irregular shapes, the four lengths are imputed
29Inlet or outlet module lenght Conveyors module can be:LenghStandard 2000mmLonger 3200mmHeightStandardHigher +1000mm
30Independent motorization on inlet Independent motorization allows to stop the inlet conveyor for the loading phase.By a foot command operator can start & stop conveyor with hands freeSafe loading operationPossibility to load while machine ids processing
31ETS predispositionWith ETS predisposition, there are no ETS functions but all mechanical ETS parts are already mounted. It results cheaper when afterwards ETS would be implemented as no parts has to be replaced.
32Remote service Remote service is a package consisting in: Hardware firewall for internet connection between Neptun central service and the installed machineThe price of the initial kit includes the first 12 month serviceFree software upgrades: in case a new software release is issued, Neptun provide it free of charge otherwise would be charges (example ETS2 upgrade for non square would cost € 4.000)
