LIPPERT: New Automated Tableware Factory for Vista Alegre

The Vista Alegre Group is investing around EUR 20 million in a new state-of-the-art and highly automated tableware factory producing stone­ware for its customer IKEA.

Production will begin in 2014 with a yearly capacity of 30 million items with different forms, sizes and colours. The German company LIPPERT is being assigned responsibility for complete handling and all glazing plants. The scope of equipment delivered starts directly after the isostatic pressing of tableware and ends after automatic kiln loading and unloading. The entire material flow takes place automatically. In this pro­cess, non-circular items as well as special goods are automatically put on the firing bats in a space-saving arrangement using cameras and ­robots and unloaded afterwards. A supervisory LIPPERT data recording system coordinates and controls the production process. (6/2013)
