Keratech presents the revolutionary AIRTOUCH.

This Sacmi Group company offers a new ceramic roller that minimises contact with tiles

A roller capable, thanks to its special shape, of offering as little contact as possible with the tile transported on it. Called AIRTOUCH, this is the latest patented product by Keratech, a company of the Sacmi Group. AIRTOUCH ensures greater firing process efficiency and thus qualitatively higher results at an extremely contained cost.
AIRTOUCH - which will make its world debut at Tecnargilla 2006 at the Sacmi Group stand occupying the whole Hall B1 - allows producers to overcome some of the critical problems that have always affected roller/tile interaction. More specifically, in the rapid cooling have now been overcome the control difficulties due to speeds and thermal differentials which significantly affected the tiles properly aligned feeding.
This new product from Keratech solves also the pre-heating and pre-firing zone inconveniences.
Produced thanks to an extrusion system covered by a worldwide patent, AIRTOUCH offers considerable advantages: high air flows underneath the tile (better firing and more balanced kiln control); roller improved straightness thanks to a reduced contact between roller and tile, in the above-mentioned situations of thermal imbalance (in both pre-firing and cooling); reduced roller cleaning requirements.
This solution stems from Keratech’s constant commitment to ongoing improvement and resolution of customers’ problems - the same commitment that led to the development of the Vector (the roller that realigns material feed) and the KM SD043 (an excellent product for the glazed porcelain tile firing zone thanks to its modulus of elasticity, twice as great as that of the technical rollers on today’s market, and the controlled size and percentage of the pores).
