Innovative approach for the digital ceramic tile glazing process, using a continuous in-line glazer

Project description

Utilising digital technology to enhance safety and efficiency of ceramic tile glazing

Europe boasts world-leading companies in the ceramic tile industry. However, tile manufacturers are challenged by the slow and hazardous glazing methods of screen printing and spraying that result in significant material loss and pose a serious health threat to workers. The EU-funded Glazetile project aims to make use of digital technology to create a safer and more efficient in-line glazing process. It will speed up glazing at reduced costs while producing higher-quality products in a safer working environment. Overall, the project will lead to greater sustainability for European tile manufacturers.
