Ceramic tile production process and processing technology
Ceramic tile production process and processing technology

The ceramic tile production mainly consists of three steps, the making of the blank, the glaze and the firing. Ceramic tile color and pattern in the traditional process is completed in glazing. But in recent years, due to the rising of background wall ceramic tile, the traditional process cannot meet the needs of customization. Using Dlican UV printer through the digital printing technology can easily print on the ceramic tile, and print out the effect of customer needs.

China has the worlds oldest porcelain making history.Porcelain, which was synonymous with China in those days, also became a western term for Chinese people.

Today, we talk about the most common tile, how is it produced?

The main component of ceramic tile is clay and quartz sand. After the initial mixing processing, after pressing, glazing, sintering process, finally formed an acid-base porcelain or ceramic materials. It is used to be laid of the ground and wall body.

In the process of processing tiles, there are usually following steps:

1. The material
Good raw materials can ensure the normal processing in the follow-up process. This is the final step and a very important step. The technician needs to check whether the chemicals in the material meet the requirements.

The qualified ceramic tile material will be formally entered into the production process. The first process is the pulping, the process is generally 12 hours, the raw material will be ground into the water particles with uniform particle. The mixer is then stirred and powdered. The powder is pressed into a ceramic tile.

Since the tiles will contract in the process of refining, the bricks are generally much larger in size.

2. The glazing
If the brick is directly refined, the finished product is as rough and bumpy as the back of the tile, and the front is smooth because it has a glaze on it. The process of adding a bright surface to a brick is called a glaze.

After the previous repression, brick press out the moisture content is higher, if glazing printing directly into the kiln firing is likely to cause dryness and deformation of ceramic tile. First dry, then reoccupy centrifugal jilt glaze, in the form of bell jar type pour glaze and glazing. After this step, the ceramic tile after refining can have bright face and various paint effects.

3. The firing
In this step, the brick will be put into a brick furnace that is high to 1200 degrees centigrade. After 70-80 minutes of firing, the material is made of porcelain, which is a hard and shiny tile.

New process of ceramic tile processing

In the traditional old process, the color and pattern of the tile surface are completed in glazing step. But due to the rise of household ceramic tile ground wall in recent years, the traditional methods couldnt do personalized customization between customer and manufacturer,. Then use UV printing technology for ceramic tile secondary printing technology arises at the historic moment.

Using digital image processing technology and high-precision nozzle printing technology, without making film. Dlican UV flatbed printer can easily print the surface of ceramic tile with color printing, embossing effect, and also highlighting effect. It is used in home decoration, with persistent effect.
