Large tile manufacturing and handling: Sacmi a strategic partner for Usak Seramik

Long-standing Turkish company renews its trust in Sacmi-designed solutions to complete a plant extension and renewal programme aimed at the high end of the market

Usak Seramik, a historical brand on the Turkish ceramic scene, is looking to positon itself at the high end of the market, where aesthetics and size provide outstanding added value. To achieve that, they have once again chosen the Sacmi Group as their main partner in an ambitious plant extension and renewal programme.

The investment concerns the production plant located near the town of Banaz (Eastern Turkey, Aegean region), a site covering 220,000 m2 where two new high tonnage presses –a PH 7500 and a PH 6500 – have been installed and started-up; the latter, both designed to handle medium-large tile sizes, join an already conspicuous pool of existing presses; the investment, which also includes two new EVA 984 vertical driers, comes complete with all required moulds and accessories.

The firing department has also been renewed and given a significant boost with a 130 m long all-new FMS 2950 kiln (featuring an optimal load width of no less than 2710 mm and a full range of heat recovery and energy consumption optimising systems) installed downstream from the 12.6 m dryer. Sacmi is also supplying sorting lines made by Nuova Fima, the Group brand that specialises in the development of handling and end-of-line solutions: 3 lines have been shipped to Usak Seramik, all designed to handle a full range of large tile sorting and packaging tasks, even with products as large as 1200x1200.

July also saw Sacmi complete the first stage of a series of product handling solutions, which will be fully controlled by latest-generation magnetically guided vehicles.

This latest order, then, confirms Sacmi’s status as a partner crucial to Usak Seramik’s growth ambitions. Indeed, the Usak aims to position itself at the high end of the market where aesthetics and size provide excellent added value.
