Two new GA2000 robots installed on lines dedicated to robotised glazing of WCs. A new investment that increases the total number of SACMI-Gaiotto solutions currently in operation at the Mettlach manufacturing facility
With this latest order for two new glazing robots, the number of SACMI Gaiotto solutions installed at German firm Villeroy&Boch - a leading producer of high quality, stunningly designed ceramic and non-ceramic items for bathrooms, kitchens, dining rooms and wellness areas since 1748 - rises continuously.
Already up and running, the two GA 2000 robots have been installed on existing lines, replacing the previous machines to ensure the highest SACMI Gaiotto standards of automation, efficiency and glazed piece quality.
The two lines are specifically designed to manufacture WCs as part of a varied production mix. Equipped with mass control systems that optimise the amount of delivered glaze, the two new robots allow off line programming of glazing recipes via user-friendly joystick control and direct on-line parameter setting.
What more, this latest order also lets the customer manage cell production data remotely thanks to a slave communication interface that lets the robot communicate directly with the customer's systems. A feature that allows, as part of the shift towards Industry 4.0, constant analysis and monitoring of glazing line performance.
