- Automatic Rotary-Rack 20 circular system for high efficient product curing.

- Comprehensive conveyor system for automatic handling of new and cured roof tiles including an “adjustable” height setting of the depalleter machine to accommodate two different tile profiles, an automatic pallet oiler and a high speed pallet flow inverter.

- ‘Wet’ product colouring system incorporating slurry or acrylic paint applicators to produce ‘gloss’ surface finish on tiles and offer resistance to adverse weather conditions.

- Automatic packaging system equipped to produce 40 tile strapped bundles that are lifted and moved to stockyard by a forklift truck equipped with mechanical gripper.

The full heating system for the tile curing tunnel was provided by ‘Shanghai Vortex Tile Machines Co., Ltd‘ works who also provide a 24/7 technical support service to the customer.
