Betta Sanitaryware grows alongside Sacmi

The South African company increases production thanks to a new kiln supply from Sacmi Whiteware

The well-established partnership between Sacmi Whiteware and the South African ceramics company, Betta Sanitaryware, of the Ceramic Industries Group, has once again proved its success. Thanks to this new supply, Betta’s production capacity will rise from one million pieces/year to 1.5 million as from February 2005, with more than 160 workers involved in production. The expansion in progress includes the installation of a third tunnel kiln STK 260/78, an ALS150 casting machine for the production of washbasins and pedestals, an AVE040 casting machine for the production of WCs with stick-on rim and two AVM150 casting machines for the production of  WCs with stick-on rim (robotized demoulding and sticking operations). For the glazing stage, Betta Sanitaryware has chosen the robotized glazing line and two robotized siphon glazing machines made by Gaiotto. This decision clearly demonstrates Betta’s belief in the advantages of using automatic high pressure casting machines and robotized glazing systems.
With this investment, Betta Sanitaryware – whose production output is 95% made using high-pressure casting and 95% glazed using glazing robots – aims to consolidate its position as leader on the South African market. With this new supply, Betta’s plant will be equipped with 8 AVE casting machines, 6 ALS casting machines, 4 AVM casting machines, 5 glazing robots, 3 robotized siphon glazing machines and 3 tunnel kilns.
