Sacmi recently announced it has supplied GSI Sanitari di Gallese (Viterbo) with an integrated ADS robotized shower tray production unit. The installation was intended to improve working conditions for workers, reduce costs and output times, and improve finished product quality.

The integrated production unit consists of an ADS robot that moves along a slide (the movement is controlled as the seventh robot axis) and accessories to allow de-molding, storage, and automatic car loading. A special rotating platform underneath the cars can allows optimization of product loading.

High-pressure production, together with automatic manipulation of articles of considerable size (up to 1 meter or more) and weight, can allow reduced worker exertion, as well as lowered risk for occupational illnesses. When the pieces reach the automated integrated glazing units, their surfaces are glazed by special robots featuring spray guns. The combination of robots and glaze mass flow control systems can ensure repeatability and consistent finished product quality.
