In the age of mobile phones, we most likely invest even more time sitting on bathrooms than in the past. As well as modern technology has actually changed the toilet-making process, also. Lately we checked out a large manufacturing facility in Hungary where human beings and also robots make toilets together.
The 267 year-old European porcelains maker Villeroy & Boch acquired Alföldi Porcelángyár, the largest ceramic factory in Hungary in 1992, just a couple of years after the collapse of the political and also economical system. The socialist company was established in 1965 in Hódmezővásárhely, and also ended up being the biggest supplier of hygienic wares in the area. The plant successfully survived not only the program change in 1990, but the current global economic crisis starting in 2007.
A couple of days ago the manufacturing facility celebrated its 50th wedding anniversary and also on this unusual event the administration let a handful of journalists inside the walls of the manufacturing facility, which is the biggest Villeroy & Boch plant in Europe.
There are 5 main steps in the manufacturing of a toilet (or a bidet, or a washbasin and more), which you can see in the pictures below. First, they need to prepare the raw products of the body and also the polish. After that comes the high pressure spreading, a process that gives the liquid ceramic product its last solid form. After drying (action three) industrial robots cover the semi-finished products in glaze (action 4). Ultimately the hygienic merchandises experience gradually a shooting passage, spending 20 hours in the long-long stove where at one point the highest temperature gets to 1200 degrees celsius.
We found it also impressive that producing one toilet, from kaolin powder to glossy and hot (ask Helmut Newton!) porcelain, takes five days of work. However the factory is so big that 4000 items are generated-- that is virtually one and a fifty percent million items per year, made by only 750-800 workers.
