Abstract (en)

The invention comprises a matrix-bearing cylinder (3), mobile in rotation about its own axis, provided with at least one elastically-deformable peripheral part covered with a smooth external cylindrical surface (30) made of a highly elastically deformable elastomer material on which a shape, constituting a matrix, is etched; the shape being composed of a plurality of cells (31). The plurality of cells (31) are connected one to another by communication channels (5). The matrix cylinder (3) rolls undraggingly and with a predetermined pressure on a tile surface of a tile (2) transiting on the rest plane (1), and deposits the glaze contained in the cells (31) on the tile surface. A doctor (4) operates contactingly on the smooth external cylindrical surface (30) of the matrix cylinder (3) and scrapes away an excess of glaze deposited thereon and adhering thereto; the doctor (4) combining a scraping and cleaning function with a glaze remixing function; the doctor (4) also having a cell-replenishing function at every revolution of the matrix cylinder (3). <IMAGE> <IMAGE>
