A third SACMI robotized glazing line for RAK Bangladesh

This investment reinforces the firm's technological partnership with SACMI and aims to achieve total automation of the glazing process. The new robotized cell is the third to be installed on the Dhaka sanitaryware line

Following investments in its sanitaryware casting and firing line, RAK Bangladesh has again turned to SACMI to automate the glazing department, its aim being to produce high quality products while maximising line efficiency and training up workers.

The third SACMI glazing cell to be installed by the Dhaka-based parent company, this solution makes use of a SACMI-Gaiotto GA 2000 robot; perfect for implementing self-learning glazing programmes, the latter also features a mass control system to modulate glaze delivery.

Placed at the centre of a 4-position turret, the robot controls cell operation and can govern glazing of at least a thousand pieces a day over three shifts, providing guaranteed glazed product quality and increased efficiency. Alongside uniform thickness and perfect repeatability of application, SACMI-Gaiotto technology also allows for a consistent reduction of overspray and, therefore, raw material waste.

The installed glazing cell, which will become operational during the first few months of 2019, is linked to two bar-type conveyors and the relative handling device for automatic piece loading and unloading. As before, the investment decision was driven by a desire to make the most of the very best SACMI automation technology to saturate the output capacity of the Dhaka plant, which already exceeds 1.4 million pieces, a figure that makes the company – part of the international RAK Ceramics giant – the leading player on the Bangladeshi market.
