Cerámica Alberdi invests in technological processes developed by System. The main reason behind the choice of this historical Argentinian manufacturer of porcelain ceramics was the efficiency that distinguishes System process solutions, dedicated to quality control, sorting, just-in-time packaging and palletisation.
Start-up of the new technologies chosen by Cerámica Alberdi is scheduled for the start of 2017, which will also see the inauguration of a brand new range of articles in technical and glazed porcelain ceramics, in an innovative format.
The industrial automations developed by System, which will become part of the production facilities of Cerámica Alberdi, comprise Qualitron for quality control, Multigecko for sorting, 4Phases for packaging, Falcon for palletisation and AGVs for intralogistics.
Starting with the Qualitron unit, Cerámica Alberdi will install two of these units. This automated quality and control unit constitutes a powerful high definition vision system made up of two black and white cameras, one colour camera and a lighting device specially designed by System for this device.
Among the salient technical features of this system is defect recognition and precise processing of specific diagnostics to achieve impeccable standards of tone inspection, revealing each variation in tone at a high process speed.
As regards the end-of-line system in the new Cerámica Alberdi production facilities, Multigecko sorting units will be installed, rapid and efficient also in format changeover operations, the packaging units 4Phases, which will form the carton packs around the stack of tiles up to formats of 120x120 cm, gantry palletizers Falcon, the pallet finishing system and AGV automatic guided vehicles.
The technological supply of System to Cerámica Alberdi also involves the decorating process, with the roller printing system for large formats Rotocolor XXL BS and two glazing lines produced by Nuova Era, complete with all applications required to guarantee improved efficiency and quality as needed for these top of the range products.
The set of technologies that make up the plant layout was designed exclusively by System to respond to the industrial development plan of Cerámica Alberdi, a combination of advanced South American productivity and state-of-the-art innovation made in Italy.
