Sacmi Group recently announced that South American ceramic company ICASA has signed an agreement with the Sacmi Group for the supply of a new automatic glazing line with a Gaiotto GA 2000 robot. The new line became fully operative approximately two months after assembly work began; after successful testing at the end of February, it reportedly yielded excellent results, the customer being particularly pleased with the user-friendly programming and the ability to use spraying programs immediately.
The new glazing line, which reportedly guarantees an output of about 1,000 pieces per day, consists of a four-station turret with an eight-axis Gaiotto GA2000 robot interfaced with the glaze feed control system; the latter allows the user to personalize spraying parameters (glaze feed rate, nozzle aperture, spray particle size) to suit the various piece models. To complete the line, ICASA also took delivery of an automatic piece foot cleaning system and two conveying systems that can ensure automatic piece loading/unloading at the four-position turret.
