R.B.M. ITALIA: 50 years of experience and commitment

2013-04-20 | Anniversary

When we consider the machines to process the edges of glass sheets, we often do not consider the actual wheels that carry out this work. And having 50 years in manufacturing these wheels is quite an achievement. In this article, we get an idea of the basic history of one of Italy’s grinding and polishing wheel manufacturers - R.B.M.
