New EKO kiln, sales to the global ceramic industry’s major players have already topped 50

Unbeatable reductions in fuel consumption, together with design features that ensure maximum line flexibility

Fume volumes reduced by 20% compared to traditional kilns, 25% less consumption during pauses in production and record-breaking operational consumption rates. These, then, are the latest advantages to be provided by the Sacmi Group that, with the new line of EKO kilns, is gaining ever-larger market shares all over the world; over 50 machines have already been sold, 70% of which have already been started up successfully at plants belonging to the global ceramic industry’s major players.

Primacy in terms of consumption is certainly not the only EKO strong point: advantages extend to design features that boost market competitiveness and full compliance with all the most modern production requirements.

First of all, Sacmi has responded to the need for frequent size changeovers and accurate management of increasingly smaller production batches by cutting kiln consumption during pauses in production (by 25%) and by implementing firing curve monitoring and control systems to minimize temperature variation inside the firing chamber (within 2 °C); this allows for high-precision material yields regardless of size or thickness, thus minimizing waste.

The decision to place kiln consumption data at the disposal of customers ensures they can monitor kiln performance in real time via an advanced, user-friendly interface. On Sacmi machines, the supervision system provides, in fact, all essential system information and can be interfaced with external control tools, a factor vital to the proper management of modern manufacturing facilities.

With numerous references from key players in European and international ceramics - over 50 EKO kilns have been sold in 10 countries around the world - Sacmi is a complete plant engineering partner-provider, capable of offering all-round consultancy services thanks to an in-depth understanding of consumption and resource optimisation procedures at every stage of the production sequence.
