Sacmi’s EKO Kiln Sales Top 50 Units Worldwide
According to Sacmi, its kiln sales continue to gain worldwide market share because of reductions in fuel consumption and design features that ensure line flexibility and efficiency to cope with ever-more frequent size changeovers and pauses in production. The new line of EKO kilns is gaining market share all over the world. Over 50 machines have been sold, 70% of which have been successfully launched. The kilns reportedly offer 20% reduced fume volumes compared to traditional kilns, 25% less consumption during pauses in production and record-breaking operational consumption rates.
Sacmi has responded to the need for frequent size changeovers and accurate management of increasingly smaller production batches by cutting kiln consumption during pauses in production and by implementing firing curve monitoring and control systems to minimize temperature variation inside the firing chamber (within 2°C). This allows for high-precision material yields regardless of size or thickness, thus minimizing waste. Operators can reportedly monitor kiln performance in real time via an advanced, user-friendly interface. The supervision system provides system information and can be interfaced with external control tools.
