Kale once again decides to glaze with Gaiotto

Another two robotized lines are now operational at the firm’s sanitaryware manufacturing plant

 
  The Kale Group has strengthened its partnership with the Sacmi Group to give yet another boost to sanitaryware glazing operations at its plant in Çan (Turkey): the plant, has in fact, recently undergone further expansion following the installation of two additional glazing lines, each equipped with a Gaiotto 9-axis GA 2000 robot.

Gaiotto robotized glazing allows manufacturers to maintain constant finished product quality because glaze delivery to the piece is stabilised by the Mass Control system, even where 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.

The two lines will boost output by some 2,000 pieces a day and provide extremely flexible production capacity, largely as a result of advanced self-learning programming.

Kale has also confirmed that it is greatly satisfied with the glaze recovery system, which recovers all the glaze thanks to the use of booths with dry filters. Beneficial effects include less glaze waste, improved environmental sustainability (thanks to lower booth wash water contamination) and better conditions for workers on the glazing line.

Founded as a ceramic manufacturer in 1957 by Dr. Ibrahim Bodur, the Kale Group is now an international industrial giant made up of 17 firms based in Turkey, Russia and Italy with a total of over 5,000 employees. Its business areas span from the production of a broad range of industrial devices to chemical and food products, home appliances, IT devices, tourism and transport. Its products satisfy the needs of customers in over 100 countries via more than 400 sales outlets.
