At Ina Sanitary, all of our sanitary products have gone through a comprehensive and sophisticated manufacturing process to provide high-quality final products for our existing and new consumers. Our production plant is equipped with advanced and cutting-edge machinery and equipment to ensure that every step of our manufacturing process is conducted efficiently and effectively.
Design is a key element that ensures our ceramics sanitary wares are of the highest quality and comply with international industry standards. Our team of in-house internationally trained designers consider and weigh in on various aspects in the design process of our sanitary products. Not only do they need to serve highly functional purposes, their designs must be aesthetically pleasing and on par with the current trends in the market.
Our manufacturing process starts with the casting of ceramics in slurry state into the design mould of our product. This will result in a cast that serves as the foundation of the final product.
The resulting cast goes through a drying process at the heat of 100-degree Celcius. This drying process hardens the mould, preparing it for the next step in the manufacturing process.
WHITE BODY INSPECTION
After being taken out of the dryer, the cast is inspected to avoid any defects. This step is called white body inspection as the cast appears to be white in this process.
The cast that has passed the white body inspection then enters the glazing process. Here, the cast is sprayed with glaze slurry in a color that is in accordance with its design and specifications.
LOADING TO FIRING
After the glazing process, the case is loaded into the firing machine. To ensure the efficiency of this step, a wide range of casts are loaded at the same time into the machine.
The firing process of the cast inside the machine is conducted at the heat of 1,200-degree Celcius. This is to ensure that the glazed surface of the cast is properly dried.
FIRING BODY INSPECTION
Each fired product body must go through a final inspection process to ensure there are no defects on the final product as well as to gaurantee the sanitary standard of the product. This quality-control step is conducted by meticulously inspecting every part of the product body.
Final products that have passed the fired body inspection are then packed into wooden crates, in accordance with product types and customer orders, before being shipped to the customers.
