SCE, operating in the world of research and technological innovation, participates in the “Glazetile” project for the development of a control system dedicated to a revolutionary solution for digital ceramic glazing. This project was born in cooperation with a company of consolidated innovative tradition in the specific sector and allowed to deal in an original way with the problem of glazing ceramic tiles through digital Drop on Demand (DOD) deposition of water-based enamels.
SCE has created a new CNC-based control dedicated to the specific application, designed to comply with the regulatory requirements and the quality control of the digitization processes required by the indications of Industry 4.0.
The new structure is designed with a highly innovative architecture, based on modules interconnected with each other, with the machine and with the external environment, thanks to the use of industrial BUS (Ethercat) and communication interfaces based on ICT technologies of now pervasive use.
Horizon 2020 (H2020), the Framework Program of the European Union (EU) for research and innovation for the 2014-2020 period, awarded the “Digiglaze” project with funding to support the first step necessary for the development of the project.
