Kale Invests in Sanitaryware Glazing Lines from Gaiotto
The Kale Group has installed two additional glazing lines at its sanitaryware plant in Çan, Turkey.
The Kale Group has strengthened its partnership with the Sacmi Group with the installation of two additional glazing lines at its sanitaryware plant in Çan, Turkey. Each line is equipped with a Gaiotto nine-axis GA 2000 robot. The two lines will boost output by some 2,000 pieces a day and provide flexible production capacity, largely as a result of advanced self-learning programming.
Gaiotto robotized glazing reportedly allows manufacturers to maintain constant finished product quality because glaze delivery to the piece is stabilized by the Mass Control system, even when there are variations in environmental conditions and the physical characteristics of the glaze. The new GDA80 spray gun developed by Gaiotto works in concert with Mass Control. Key features include greater compactness, allowing the various parts of the sanitaryware items to be reached more easily, greater reliability, and minimal maintenance thanks to easy replacement of key components.
Kale has also confirmed that it is greatly satisfied with the glaze recovery system, which recovers all the glaze due to the use of booths with dry filters. Additional benefits include less glaze waste, improved environmental sustainability thanks to lower booth wash water contamination, and better conditions for workers on the glazing line.
