Founded in 2006, Sanikey has, over the years, become one of Turkey's leading ceramic sanitaryware manufacturers and strengthened its market position through continuous investment in technological innovation. Already a SACMI customer (previous purchases include ADM casting machines, Gaiotto glazing robots and a manual de-mould AVM cell), this Istanbul-based company is now taking quality to the next level with the construction of a new plants in the GEBZE-KOCAELI
A complete SACMI high pressure WC casting cell equipped with two AVM machines assisted by de-moulding and piece handling robots is currently being installed at the new facility. The SACMI AVM previously purchased by Sanikey - until now used for manual de-moulding of articles - will also be incorporated in the new cell.
Providing total automation, quality, reliability and process repeatability, the casting cell will, in addition to the SACMI AVM (the world-leading WC manufacturing solution that uses 7-part moulds) have a full array of accessory systems such as a slip dosing and pre-heating system, storage units complete with de-moulding supports, a water intake system and all the tools needed to ensure automation of piece outfeed.
Following on from the growth that has already transformed it from emerging manufacturer to pivotal player, Sanikey will thus be able to increase its export quotas, especially on European and US markets. In short, this automated SACMI solution will provide greater manufacturing efficiency, quality and process consistency, allowing Sanikey to exploit the full potential of AVM technology.
