RAK Ceramics India continues to invest with SACMI

New robotized glazing plant started up successfully

As part of the ongoing process of modernising and automating its sanitaryware manufacturing plants, the RAK Group has installed and started up a new robotized glazing line at its facility in Samalkot, Andhra Pradesh, India.

The new line quickly became operational, about two months after assembly work began. Tested in October, it has, right from the very first day, provided excellent results thanks to the tried and tested self-learning system on the GA2000 robot, once again demonstrating just how easily and quickly spraying programmes can be set up.

The new glazing line consists of a 4-position carousel with an 8-axis Gaiotto GA2000 robot, interfaced with a glaze flow feedback control (Mass control) system. This provides manufacturers with personalised spraying parameters (glaze flow rate, spray aperture, misting) to suit the different models being coated.

Completing the order is a bar-type conveying system. Bar conveyors ensure automatic loading and unloading of pieces at the 4-position carousel by way of an angular transfer unit with 3 electrical axes; the various working positions are controlled by an encoder and safety limit switches. Handling is inverter-controlled by the integrated production centre PLC. Lastly, the integrated production centre is Ethernet-interfaced to provide Sacmi-Gaiotto tele-assistance services.
