SACMI, main partner of Manisa Sanitaryware (Turkey)

New plant near the city of Izmir to purchase all its key solutions from SACMI. The goal: to conquer international markets with high-end Vitreous China and Fine Fire Clay

SACMI is the main partner for the supply of all the key technologies incorporated in the production line at Manisa, a new Turkey-based sanitaryware company in the same-named town near Izmir. Equipped, at this initial stage, for an output capacity of some 300,000 pcs/year (expected to increase to a fully operational capacity of about 750,000 pieces by the end of 2019), this plant has been designed with quality in mind and will produce a broad mix of  Vitreous China and Fine Fire Clay articles for high-end international sanitaryware markets.

SACMI has supplied the entire body and glaze preparation department. Moreover, downstream there are two integrated high pressure casting centres equipped with two AVM casting modules each plus two mould and de-moulded piece handling robots. Further on lies a new dryer featuring an automatic car infeed/outfeed handling system, supplied by SACMI Istanbul.

Completing the investment is a robotized glazing station with 4-position turret (ready for a doubling of capacity) and two brand new HWS Pulse Firing Riedhammer shuttle kilns, each equipped with six 2 or 3-level cars to provide a total load capacity of 560 pieces. These kilns allow for flexible production of both Vitreous China and large Fine Fire Clay articles (e.g. the large washbasins particularly popular on UK-US markets). Moreover, SACMI is already in the process of supplying a 93-metre long TWS tunnel kiln (plus a 9-metre pre-kiln) that will let the firm raise annual production to over 750,000 pieces by the end of 2019. That same forward-thinking logic will see an extension of the casting department with the installation of 5 new robotized casting centres.

The undisputed market leader when it comes to providing an effective combination of unmatched technology, consultancy and support at every stage of the production process, SACMI has also supplied Manisa with two new complete modelling systems for the manufacture of latest-generation rimless WCs: these large, heavy pieces will be handled, along the entire production line, by cutting-edge robotized systems.
