SACMI Sanitaryware gains another important customer in Central Europe; Laufen, a leading player on the sanitaryware market based in Znojmo, Czech Republic. Part of the Roca Group – already one of SACMI’s main partners in various areas of the world - Laufen has recently purchased and installed a robotised glazing cell completely supplied by SACMI-Gaiotto and equipped with glazing and handling robots.
The latest-generation FANUC handling robot serves two filling siphon glazing machines, SACMI’s newly designed machine specially conceived to guarantee maximum versatility to handle different types of WC. In particular, the solution offers the possibility to customize glazing cycles with solutions to fit the specific type of piece, optimizing cell efficiency.
The glazing operations are controlled by the Gaiotto GA2000 robot, installed on a two-position carousel and provided with dry filtering system for the glaze. Thanks to the smart release of the software for offline programming by 3D modelling, the customer can guarantee a significant reduction in time-to-market of the new models, optimizing quality and performance of the process and reducing glazing consumption. The robot supplied to Laufen is equipped with GDA80, the SACMI needle-free spray-gun characterized by high performance and zero maintenance.
