Even more freedom of choice when it comes to size and thickness. Glazing and decoration lines that are going deep digital. Extremely energy-efficient kilns and dryers and fully automatic sanitaryware casting, glazing and robotized handling systems. And that’s just a taste of the many new developments that, just one year before its centenary, SACMI will be showcasing at the international Tecnargilla fair 2018 (Rimini Fiera, 24-28 September 2018).
Taking centre-stage in the Tiles area will be the new PCR 3000 super-compactor, the solution that provides even better size and thickness flexibility (fired tiles up to 1800 mm wide and 30 mm thick). The heart of the Continua+ line, the new PCR 3000 will be displayed alongside SACMI Digital dry digital decoration solutions and the new patented through-body veining control system.
From new developments on the traditional pressing front (SACMI will present the PH 16000 at the fair, the latest model in a new generation of large integrated-automation presses) to deep digital glazing and decoration lines, Tecnargilla 2018 also offers an excellent opportunity to illustrate the progress made with regard to Industry 4.0. Alongside the SACMI H.E.R.E. supervisor, the company proposes a completely new approach to production via re-engineering of plant flows and new highly automated warehouse control systems.
Moving on to Sanitaryware, the inauguration of the new pilot plant in Imola - a permanent addition to the Lab, at the disposal of customers worldwide - is a particularly exciting development. A key player in the special in-company preview on 24th September, SACMI Sanitaryware will, at the fair, present a special installation featuring total automation of casting, glazing and product handling processes, up to and including the final stage managed by latest-generation LGVs (laser-guided vehicles).
This edition of Tecnargilla will also be a special one for SACMI Molds&Dies which, alongside the successful SACMI CRS system for fast mould changeover, will present R², the new isostatic punch for large tiles that provides perfectly squared slabs, elimination of the “transparency” effect and simplification of the mould.
We look forward to seeing you at the SACMI stand (Hall B1, Rimini Fiera trade fair centre).
