CEFLA Finishing Group at Glasstec 2008

CEFLA Finishing Group focuses the technological research on new glass finishing systems while using the different specialisations of the companies of the group, manufacturing application machines (roller coaters, spray systems, water curtain coaters) and curing ovens for organic lacquers and ceramic enamels.

Today, the roller application technology turns out to be extremely interesting for the glass industry, especially if the main need requires elevated flexibility during the change from one application to another.

SORBINI, important member of the Group has always been engaged in the roller application sector and proceeds with its intensive research tradition. The result is an absolute new, patented roller coater “UNICOATER” suited to develop a system that allows for the application, with just one roller coater, of both: elevated lacquer quantities to create “covering” effects or minimum quantities to create different glazed effects; until today the realisation of both finishing methods required two independent machines or continuous exchange of the application rollers generating elevated dead time.

UNICOATER is a machine designed with one operating head composed of two different application rollers that can be alternatively used according to the type of required finishing application.

The first application roller allows for the application of elevated lacquer quantities while guaranteeing a perfectly homogenous product distribution over the whole coated surface.

The second application roller allows for the execution of all alternative applications; for example, it is possible to obtain a glazed effect or simile-mordant effect.

A special, PLC programmable device has been studied with the purpose to exclude the application roller not used at that moment.

Another outstanding feature of the UNICOATER is the fitting with a special system composed of a quick application roller cleaning unit: it considerably reduces the washing time of the roller, especially if line-engraved rollers are used.
