Gaiotto robotised glazing showcased at Civita Castellana

New robotised glazing booths: more automation, more employment

Gaiotto Automation, a Sacmi Group company specialising in the production of glazing and painting plants for several industries, has presented new high-automation robotised sanitaryware glazing booths at Civita Castellana. In the midst of a difficult economic situation that is hitting the sanitaryware industry hard, especially the Civita Castellana area, Gaiotto is offering a real opportunity to regain competitiveness at both national and international level.

Sacmi and Gaiotto are therefore proposing systems that reduce costs and enhance efficiency in order to meet the requirements of customers demanding ever-greater quality and more personalised products, the aim being to strengthen their role as cutting-edge integrated services and solutions providers.

As Mr. Pratella – assistant plant technical manager of Sacmi’s Ceramics division – points out, these days it is important that machines, plants and technical solutions all focus on optimising consumption, energy-related performance and output quality/performance. The new Gaiotto robotized glazing booths offer a triple advantage to the sanitaryware industry: they improve the workplace environment, make it easier to recover glaze and also ensure that water is no longer needed to abate it. And this is no small thing, as water is a key topic when it comes to cutting production costs because it absolutely needs to be recovered and treated. Not surprisingly, then, water is a key issue in Europe-based sanitaryware production because of the focus on environmental impact and the cost of both supplying and disposing of water (and future legislation is likely to make it even more of an issue).

Product completeness is also improved by Gaiotto’s development of a system for optimising “off-line” glazing – all in keeping with the corporate strategy of enhancing both efficiency and the quality of offered solutions so as to ensure a bright future for the Italian sanitaryware industry.

Consequently, focussing on automation means safeguarding both output and the quality of the work environment.
