Villeroy & Boch, the number of Sacmi-Gaiotto robots rises to 11

The distinguished German manufacturer reinforces its long-standing partnership with the Sacmi Group company by installing two new GA 2000 glazing robots for large pieces

There are now 11 Sacmi-Gaiotto robots installed at the manufacturing complex in Mettlach, the German town home to Villeroy & Boch which has been making high-end bathroom & wellness, tableware, tile, kitchen and 'living in style' items since 1748.

The industrial partnership between this renowned German company and Gaiotto (a Sacmi Group company specialised in the manufacture of robotic and industrial automation solutions) is as stable as it is long-standing. The total number of glazing robots leapt to 11 with the installation and testing of two new GA 2000s, inserted on a complex automated line started up by V&B to glaze large pieces

These new top-of-the-range Gaiotto robots are served by a two-position turret. Specific devices, such as the mass-control system and electric volumetric pump, ensure better control and optimisation of delivered glaze quantities. As part of the same project, Sacmi was also asked to revamp an existing robot with the same 2-position turret.

Like other Gaiotto robots already supplied to Villeroy & Boch, the two new GA2000s are equipped with the latest hardware and software. These, among other things, provide users with direct joystick control and let them set personalised spraying programmes via the off-line software platform (also fully developed by Gaiotto).
