V & B Chooses Sacmi-Gaiotto for Ceramic Sanitaryware

It was 1748 when Jean-François Boch founded his ceramic workshop in the Lorraine region. Later, in 1789, Nicholas Villeroy started out in the world of ceramic decoration, founding his own workshop in Wallerfangen, now in the German region of Saarland.

Today, the Villeroy & Boch (V & B) Group is one of the world’s most renowned ceramic makers with a long history of investing in product and process innovation. V & B commissioned further two Gaiotto ­robots from Sacmi/IT for glazing ceramic sanitaryware by automatic spraying. Reliable, precise and efficient, the Gaiotto technology will allow the company to boost quality and achieve greater process flexibility and efficiency. With this latest addition, the number of Gaiotto robots at the Mettlach production facility rises to 9. This latest Sacmi-supplied project includes a GA 2000 robot installed at the new sorting line and dedicated to spray fired items with a solvent-based product with sanitising and anti-limescale function; and a second workstation with another GA 2000 glazing robot. Successfully tested and started up, the two robots feature latest Sacmi-Gaiotto hardware and software. A direct joystick control is used for starting with the panel already set up in German, and advanced spraying programmes containing every single parameter, all able to be customised according to specific manufacturing requirements that vary according to the type of article to be glazed.
