Gruppo Romani, a market leader in the production of porcelain stoneware tiles in Italy, has enhanced their manufacturing process by upgrading an outdated press feeding system, with a solution implemented by Bluengineering, an OMRON System Integrator. The new solution also needed to meet the strict safety standards required by the group.
Press feeding systems are commonly used in ceramics and tile production, such as porcelain stoneware tiles. A press feeding system is crucial to ensure a consistent supply of raw materials (such as clay or other ceramic materials) to the press machine. Bluengineering and Gruppo Romani opted for OMRON‘s new M1 inverter – a cutting-edge frequency converter that had recently been introduced in the market.
The outcome of this collaboration was a secure, modern application that not only elevated safety standards but also minimized production downtime. The M1 inverter‘s integration into the tile manufacturing process demonstrates how a sophisticated press feeding system can facilitate the precise supply of materials to the press, thereby enhancing the efficiency and quality of porcelain stoneware tile production.
