Caroma looks to the future – thanks to Sacmi technology

Top-class machinery for the leading Australian sanitaryware firm

Australia’s first sanitaryware manufacturer is now the undisputed leader of the Australian market. Founded in 1941 by Charles Rothauser, Caroma can, today, boast the most modern, futuristic sanitaryware production plants in the world thanks to the automatic machinery supplied by Sacmi that handles, glazes and casts the pieces.

All production, in fact, now involves the use of pressure casting systems and Sacmi-designed resin moulds. Sacmi has also provided Caroma with the robots that carry out the glazing. Finally, at Caroma even product handling is highly innovative, being carried out by laser-guided vehicles (also Sacmi-made), as are the piece-sorting systems, which use robots and gantry loaders.

Caroma, then, has its roots firmly established in Australian business tradition, yet thanks to Sacmi’s indispensable contribution, its outlook is decidedly future-oriented. Three key factors have ensured Caroma’s success. First and foremost, its concern for the environment: Caroma was the first sanitaryware company to make WC tanks with a “double flush” button, which gives water savings of up to 67% every time it is used while ensuring the WC remains perfectly clean.
