CNC work centres
Regarding CNC working centers, the new PRATICA platform will complete Bottero’s current range, which offers solutions for glass sheets up to 18 meters long. PRATICA Platform is the evolution of the well-known PRATICA PLUS which is equipped with many technological advancements, such as the new IoT system to manage selfdiagnostics, and the documentary training section supporting the operator. The machine is available in 3300 and 4000 sizes, and both 3 and 4 axes versions are equipped with the new high-performance pressurized spindle.
