R.C.N. Solutions supplies Viraver Technology for special bending project

Viraver Technology, located in Vanzo, province of Padova, does not need any presentation: the name is enough to recall the image of a leading company in the glass industry, in particular in the production of high-tech transparent solutions and safety products for yachting as well as for automotive. They are appreciated not only in Italy, but worldwide.

Viraver Technology was founded in 2000 from the experience of its President, Ennio Mazzarolo, who together with his son Marco and an expert team, carry out important projects requiring the utmost glass safety, offering all the experience and professionalism of an Italian excellence. Keeping up with technologies, Viraver is ready to push forward by studying innovative proposals paying the utmost care to quality, regulations, standards and specific individual demands.

Viraver Technology covers a very large area where they have installed machines able to offer products of large sizes, becoming one of the major reference points for safety products having high-tech systems.

Looking for a solution to increase production of curved glass, Viraver contacted RCN Solutions at the beginning of 2023, submitting feasibility for one rotating system with four positions.

RCN had not yet manufactured one bending kiln having the features required by the customer, but had the idea in mind to develop something similar to widen the technical-commercial offer of products built with more modern systems. RCN accepted the chance to take on this first big bending project. Construction started in June 2023 and ended with delivery and installation at the end of January 2024.

To supply Viraver Technology has been a huge experience for RCN: trust has been a very important matter, allowing to face the will for a technical development. Thanks to the new generation joining RCN’s technical team, who are highly motivated to study new high-tech solutions to facilitate and maximize production, keeping an eye on the experience in bending acquired along the years. No less important has been the assistance from Viraver, who has not hesitated to support RCN about technical choices.

This is how the rotary bending system was born, a self-excluding twin-axle machine, equipped with four working positions, controlled movement and size of 4,000 by 5,500 millimetres and 2,000 millimetres in height.

The machine is in full production for special curves that can be performed thanks to Viraver’s experience in bending, a job for which this company shows great skill, and from which RCN has learned a lot.
