Lippert: Large-Scale Contract for Sanitaryware
Lippert/DE was awarded a large-scale contract by Roca Brazil for a drying system (including microwave pre-drying) and a robot glazing system for pressure-cast ceramic sanitaryware.
All in all, LIPPERT will be supplying two large channel dryers featuring 16 channels each, one microwave pre-drying system, and five robot glazing plants. All units are connected in line by a handling system. Transport of the articles from the pressure casting plants all the way to kiln-car loading is virtually fully automated. The plant is scheduled to go live by the end of 2011 (8/2011).
