SACMI recently announced the startup and commissioning of a double-layer kiln with a total tile output of 12,000 m2/day at Cerrad, a Polish klinker producer. The upper channel of the kiln is used to produce medium-large floor tile while the lower one simultaneously produces 7,000 m2/day of 245-by-65-mm trims.

SACMI installed two PH3200 hydraulic presses with an inter-column clearance of 2,450 mm, capable of pressing 22 cavities in a single row or, alternatively, medium-large floor tiles. The presses are equipped with the all-new CRS (rapid mold changeover) device, which can reduce downtimes to less than 30 minutes and increase levels of mold changeover maneuverability.

Four Nuova Fima sorting and packaging lines are located at the kiln outlet. Sacmi Forni provided two horizontal multi-channel ETP dryers and the double-layer FBN kiln for the drying and firing stages. The system is designed to give effective, efficient separation of the channels so they can handle varied sizes and cycles independent of each other.
