System supplies automation for American Wonder Porcelain plant

April 2018

American Wonder Porcelain, the US division of the Chinese Marco Polo Group is investing in System automation for its new porcelain tile plant in Lebanon, Tennessee.  The new investment will allow the company to expand its product range and introduce new sizes up to 600 by 1,200mm.

System will supply two fully automated sorting lines complete with Qualitron artificial vision system, Multigecko sorter, 4Phases packaging machine and Griffon palletiser, all of which help cut production costs. American Wonder Porcelain is the first US company to have adopted 4Phases technology for on-demand cardboard packaging. The packaging is created specifically to the size of the stack of tiles and is printed with information and logos in real time before the stack is sent to the palletisation stage.

The Marco Polo Group is also adopting System’s high-definition Creadigit digital printers to obtain products with the highest technical and aesthetic quality. Creadigit technology has already been adopted widely by US manufacturers due to its high productivity and printing precision.
