Sacmi Group recently announced that Keramin, a ceramic producer in the Republic of Belarus, has installed its sixth robotized glazing line for WCs from Gaiotto, a Sacmi company. The line reportedly completes the glazing department output capacity expansion project and includes upgrades to the first robots supplied in 2000 and 2002.
The plant, tested in January, includes an inspection booth, a shuttle transfer unit that feeds the semi-automatic U-bend glazer, a two-position loader serving the GA200 nine-axis glazing robot and, at the unloading point, sponging of the foot prior to deposit on the belt that feeds the kiln. The inspection and glazing booths feature dry filters that allow the elimination of chimneys toward the outside and full recovery of filtered glaze in the form of dry powder.
As in previous installations, this latest plant features “self learning” glazing cycles with the robot able to carry out immediate, faithful repetition of the program executed by the operator.
