CERRAD: Polish ceramic firm sets one record after another

All-new floor tile production plant already up and running

Following the record-breaking performance achieved byCERRAD just three years ago with its pressed clinker plant, one of the most automated, productive and flexible in the world [news dated 14.09.2012], entrepreneurs Karolina and Aleksander Sznyrowski decided to invest in a new success, this time a large-size floor tile plant in Starachowice. Today, that plant is already fully operative.

The SACMI-supplied grinding and spray-drying facility is one of Poland’s largest: it features three TFP120 turbo-crushers, a modular MMC111 mill and an ATM110 spray-drier that can process both local and imported raw materials, all of which have been thoroughly analysed by the SACMI Research Center and CERRAD technologists. On the pressing front there are two PH6500 machines, the largest presses to feature the CRS (rapid die changeover) system in Eastern Europe; downstream from the latter there is an ECP285 horizontal dryer, the longest in the entire area. Completing the picture is the already renowned top-of-the-range EKO kiln from SACMI FORNI which provides unprecedented performance in terms of consumption, quality, environmental-friendliness and user-friendly adjustment. With a 2950 mm wide infeed and a length of over 140 metres, it is undoubtedly the biggest tile kiln installed in Poland.

The project was also completed at a world record-breaking pace, thanks to the undisputed managerial skills of CERRAD and excellent coordination by the SACMI Technical Assistance service. Building work began in December 2014 on a non-urbanised plot and the new plant was fully operative just 9 months later.

Thanks to this new plant, then, which produces over 14,000 square metres of top quality porcelain tiles per day, CERRAD is set to play a pivotal role over the coming years – and will, undoubtedly, soon be setting further records.
