Crossville Inc., a producer of technical and glazed granito, has reportedly been running the highest tonnage press in the U.S. for more than a year. The Sacmi-made PH7500 press was purchased to produce large tiles, a product segment that is steadily gaining ground in the U.S. market.

The press has a width of 2450 mm, with a 1360 mm maximum filling depth. Crossville recently decided to boost production of 600 x 600 tiles (and its multiples) and start large-scale production of 600 x 900 mm tiles. Additional goals include the production of even larger tiles, up to 1200 x 1200 mm.
