The Jeddah-based ceramic tile producer will install G.O.D., I-NKFILLER and I-MILL systems to improve its manufacturing performance.
Arabian Ceramics (Jeddah), a subsidiary of Kab Holding (owned by Sheikh Khalid Ahmed Bagedo) and one of the largest tile manufacturers in Saudi Arabia, has commissioned I-Tech to supply three systems for the digital decoration phase with delivery scheduled by the end of the year.
They consist of a G.O.D. (Glaze On Demand) system for the automatic distribution of glazes and engobes from the preparation area to the various points of use on the glazing lines; an I-NKFILLER system for the automatic feeding of inks to digital printers; and an I-MILL system for the production of digital ceramic inks.
According to Arabian Ceramics’ technical director Carlo Ciamaroni, the three systems will make a significant improvement to both production efficiency and finished product quality.
