Ceramica Arpa of Scandiano, Italy, has launched a plant modernization project and teamed up with Sacmi to ensure the provision of cutting-edge machines and systems. The project comprises two “pillars.” The first is the PH 3590 high-tonnage press, which, due to a wide inter-column clearance of 1750 mm, can press large sizes. It has reportedly allowed Arpa to maintain and increase its lead in the still-growing large-size tile sector, now an essential part of the product range for companies focused on the high end of the market.

The second pillar of the project is a new system by Surface Inspection, a world leader in automatic ceramic tile quality control systems and now a member company of the Sacmi Group via the recent acquisition of Nuova Fima. “The quest for up-to-date solutions is essential if one is to remain market competitive,” the company’s manager said. “This is particularly true for large tiles and surfaces intended to provide the chromatic effects of natural stone in as realistic a way as possible.”
