Ceramica Mediterranea Turns To Sacmi For Expansion Plan
May 23, 2005
Ceramica Mediterranea of Guspini, Italy, recently chose Sacmi as the supplier for its expansion plan, which was aimed at doubling the plant's output to 12,000 square meters per day via a continuous production process with a single kiln. The expanded plant includes two PH 3020 presses with a clearance of 2250 mm, along with the relevant Sacmi-designed wide dies and a 16.9-m horizontal ECP 285 drier that leads into the kiln. The kiln itself is a 115-m-long FMS, built to cope with very high output rates even with a 50 mm diameter roller combination. Sacmi has also supplied Ceramica Mediterranea with storage machines designed for direct production plants, a sorting system and a palletizing unit. This last section of the line, an innovative system developed by Sacmi Automation, is the latest addition to the company's already comprehensive automatic pallet control vehicle range.
