Rak Ceramics continues to invest in Sacmi pressure casting solutions

Two new casting machines and a Riedhammer HWS kiln installed at the plant in Bangladesh

Rak Ceramics, one of the world’s largest manufacturers of ceramic tiles and sanitaryware with a distribution network that spans 160 countries worldwide, has added two new casting machines and a state-of-the-art kiln to its Bangladesh plant.

The Sacmi-developed pressure casting technology, which is now used extensively within the industry, includes two battery-type casting machines for two-part moulds and a new Riedhammer HWS kiln, which has an output capacity of 706.5 pieces per cycle.

RAK Ceramics Bangladesh plant is one of the most modern and highly automated facilities in the region. The Dhaka site is also fitted with glazing robots supplied by Sacmi and thanks to this new investment will benefit from increased output capacity, in the region of 200,000 pieces per year.

Key features of the Sacmi-supplied casting line include excellent finished product quality, user-friendliness and optimisation of space. Designed to carry out both firing and re-firing, the Riedhammer kiln is characterised by high quality output, reduced energy consumption and lower emissions.

RAK Ceramics, which has a global annual production capacity of over 4.6 million units in sanitaryware alone, has always had a strong focus on environmental and economical sustainability and their ongoing partnership with Sacmi solutions providing high-efficiency, low-consumption technology clearly demonstrates this.

Abdallah Massaad, CEO of RAK Ceramics said, “We are very pleased to have installed this new technology in our RAK Bangladesh plant. We continue to invest heavily in research, development and the latest technologies to ensure that we remain at the cutting edge of ceramics’ production. We have a strong partnership with Sacmi and a long-term commitment to maintain our status as an industry leader.”
