Round tile lapping: Today it's possible with the PREMIER Satellite!

Lapping round tiles was unthinkable until recently. All the tests made with Fickert heads and tools always gave disastrous results, entire sets of tools were destroyed and, in the worst cases, the rotating mechanical parts of the end-of-line machines were compromised.

PREMIER, thanks to the experience of its technicians and the versatility of its satellite heads, conducted tests in collaboration with the historic Spanish ceramic manufacturer CICOGRES in Villapames Castellon de la Plana, obtaining exceptional results on glazed porcelain stoneware tiles of different sizes, from 750 to 1,000 mm in diameter.

How can you lapping round tiles with Premier?

Today, thanks to the Premier satellite heads mounted on the entire line, instead of the normal Fickert heads, all the round tiles of the COCOGRES collection can be lapped effortlessly and with excellent quality:

  • Mars forming a carpet with 2 colors
  • Moon imitating stone with 3 colours
  • Vega imitating marble in 2 colours
  • Earth that develops in 6 different monochrome colors

They are round tiles that are combined with a triangular part, which fills the remaining free spaces and allows you to create interesting colour combinations.

No particular polishing technique is required and with the same line setting entirely made with satellites, an excellent qualitative and productive result has been obtained by sanding and smoothing in crest and full field the circular parts and the complementary triangles.

In addition, on the same line, all tile formats, standards with right angles from 20 x 20 mm, up to large slabs of dimensions compatible with the sander table, can be sanded, arranging them in parallel rows to form a carpet.

The use of Premier satellite heads has also made it possible to reduce the incidence of tools on the cost per square meter produced, compared to the normal production of tiles polished with Fickert .

With this important performance, the Premier satellite head proves to be the best in versatility, production efficiency, quality and cost reduction.
