MACHINE TO APPLY ENGOBE BACKPRINT-K LINE
Engobe is an application that has been used for decades in the tile sector, to avoid contamination of the kiln’s ceramic rollers, caused by the direct contact of the tile during the firing process.
For a long time, companies have not taken into account the large amount of money spent on unscheduled kiln stops, as well as the high cost of replacing ceramic kiln rollers, caused by poor application of the engobe.
However, today it is unacceptable to continue spending unjustified money, for the practice of incorrect processes or for the lack of planning. Nor can we forget that this market is increasingly competitive, and demands higher product quality.

The current challenges for the application of slip are:
- Significantly reduce costs by replacing ceramic rollers for the kiln.
- Significantly reduce the tiles of second and third quality, due to the lack of planarity by “dirty” kiln rollers
- Greater demand for quality from the market. A bad application of engobe, reflects a lack of care in production.
- Application in larger format pieces, with greater problems in planarity before firing.
- Reduction of costs, using only the necessary engobe, without wasting product.
- Reduce the ecological impact. If we do not dirty the work area, we avoid a high consumption of water during the cleanings.
While the common machines use a single roller for the application of the engobe, BACKPRINT-K Line uses a revolutionary patented technology, which allows to adapt impeccably to the surface of the tile, compensating for the lack of planarity and achieving in this way, applying correct and homogeneous the engobe in the entire area that should be covered, without staining the rest of the tile.
The BACKPRINT-K Line roller is composed of multiple floating rings of silicone, engraved by laser. Each of these rings has a width of 6 centimeters. This characteristic gives to the roller the ability to adapt to the surface of the tile, at the same time it allows us to obtain the necessary length of roller (in steps of 6 centimeters) without spending money unnecessarily.
It is also possible to engrave the silicone rings, with text and / or the logo of the company, creating at the same time that we apply the slip, a brand image.
The extreme durability of the silicone ring guarantees us a production of more than 3 million square meters, resulting in a residual application cost that is practically zero.
The “bridges” for transfer the tile, between the line and the roller have been specially designed to guarantee the maximum stability of the tile, during the application of the engobe.
The automatic adaptation of BACKPRINT-K Line to the speed of the line, ensures an impeccable process, while extending the life of all mechanical elements, to avoid stress, friction and fatigue of materials.
BACKPRINT-K Line, is designed to install directly on the bench of your line and can install it by yourself. The handling of all the parameters, through the touch screen, is extremely simple and the software is in multi-language.
With BACKPRINT-K Line, you will achieve such high cost savings that you will justify the investment expense in a few months.
