Etex-Creaton Uses Sacmi Technology

European roof tile manufacturer Etex-Creaton group has begun constructing a plant in Poland for the production of 30 million roof tiles a year. The new plant’s drying department, which will be handling both tiles and trims, has been designed by Sacmi.

The plant features on-roller fast drying technology, which is reportedly a first for a plant located in Europe. Completely automated, the Sacmi-supplied plant features two six-channel roller dryrs, each of which is 79 m long. During drying (completed in 220 minutes) the roof tiles are supported by special metallic frames that contain nine pieces.

Sacmi also supplied the trim/accessory piece drying plant, which uses the static drying room method. Robots are an integral part of this area of the plant, thus ensuring a high degree of automation and minimizing the need for manual piece handling.
