The factories and public utilities in the north of the city had been badly damaged during the last months of the war. In particular, the Cooperativa Ceramica di Imola had been entirely ruined by the Anglo-American bombs and grenades. The workers of the ceramics cooperative tried to get their tile forming machines up and running again. It was extremely important to get the machines and, in particular, the presses working again. This task was given to a company in Forlì but they kept delaying. The ceramics company had an urgent need to restart production and so they turned to the Cooperativa Meccanici. Sacmi discovered the product that was to determine its future. One thing led to another - from repairing machines damaged during the war Sacmi realised it could try to build a new machine bearing the Sacmi trademark. Sacmi designed a new machine and succeeded in making a prototipe of a clutch press with manual controls. On 5th October 1948 SACMI bought the land, located in Viale De Amicis to build new premises for the company headquarters and factory.
It is produced the first clutch press prototipe for ceramics
