Long-standing partnership with Kale Group continues

Sacmi’s relations with pioneering Turkish company reinforced again

In 2007 Kale celebrated fifty years of activity in the ceramic industry: founded – and still guided today – by Turkish entrepreneur President Dr. Ibrahim Bodur, the Group now consists of 25 companies and generates total annual sales in the order of 850 million dollars. This constant development has progressed parallel with Turkey’s own industrialisation and has, in recent years, benefited from an ongoing industrial partnership with Sacmi.

The latest Kale investment is a new floor and wall tile production plant, inaugurated last June in Yozgat-Yerkoy, in Central Anatolia, some way from the company’s historic base, located at Can. For this new plant – which guarantees a daily output of 12 thousand square metres – Bodur decided to entrust Sacmi with the task of supplying the continuous grinding equipment. Among the machines supplied by Sacmi is a new MTC070 continuous mill, capable of grinding up to 15.7 tons of dry material every hour.

Also recently tested was a new, entirely Sacmi-supplied glazed floor tile production plant: this was started up in the town of Can, the Kalebodur Seramic Factory’s traditional base, and includes three high-tonnage PH3800 presses, which feature six cavities for 33x33 cm tiles and an inter-column clearance of 2450 mm. Sacmi also supplied vertical driers from the EVA984 series and a fixed-box storage system designed by Sacmi to meet Kale’s specific production requirements.

The plant’s jewel in the crown is the kiln, an all-new twin-channel 130.2-metre long, 2850 mm wide FBP model, which is preceded by 12.6-metre JBP dryer. This is the first machine of its kind to be built by Sacmi Forni: fully redesigned in terms of both practicality and even style.

Exhibited for the first time at Tecnargilla 2006, the FBP kiln has allowed Sacmi to achieve the same levels of excellence already demonstrated in the production of single-layer kilns. One of its key features is a combustion chamber specially sized to allow recovery of heat from the cooling zone.
