A new Sacmi RobotGlaze supply has recently been made to Duravit China, for installation at its ultra-modern Chongqing factory, part of the multi-national group famous for quality design sanitaryware.
Already tested and started-up with success, the robot was installed in existing lines set up in 2016 in order to replace manual operations and achieve improved quality of the glazed piece plus process optimization and sustainability.
In this way the number of Sacmi RobotGlaze solutions installed at the plant reaches four, following the three robots supplied for the new glazing lines set up in 2019.
In this way, even with existing lines, Duravit can obtain all the benefits of Sacmi’s robotized glazing, starting from off-line programming of the glazing recipes (the robot supplied is Gaiotto’s GA-OL) up to the Mass Control system for control of the quantity of glaze applied.
In particular, Duravit chose to integrate into the cell the much-in-demand solution for applying anti-bacterial glaze, an added value feature of Sacmi robotized glazing which is especially popular on the market at the moment.
This supply further strengthens the partnership with Duravit China and, specifically, with the Chongqing production unit where Sacmi’s technology is installed throughout all areas of the factory, from pressure casting to glazing and right up to handing systems and kilns.
