The protagonists of the ceramic industry will be getting together at Ahmedabad – from 19th to 21st March – at the Indian Ceramics fair.
The venue for the event – which has become the reference point for the Indian ceramic market – is the University Exhibition Centre at Ahmedabad in the State of Gujarat, where Sacmi will be present on a large stand (no. 131) of 190 m2, completely dedicated to the Ceramics Division and in particular to the tiles, sanitaryware, tableware and heavy clay businesses.
For the Tile Division, the events diary is a packed one: at the same time as the fair, two talks will be given during a seminar organized by Sacmi for 20th March at the Radisson Blu Hotel in Ahmedabad. The first talk will focus on the new Colora HD2 wet digital decoration unit produced by Sacmi’s subsidiary In.Te.Sa. The machine, able to make digital prints on large tiles using a special system that keeps printing conditions constant, provides a highly effective response to the strong market demand for fast, frequent product changeovers. This first talk will also take a look at Crono, the highly comprehensive, innovative hardware-software system developed by In.Te.Sa. to carry out colour management of the digital printing processes used in the ceramic industry.
The second talk, instead, will illustrate the heat recovery systems that can be installed on Sacmi kilns. Confirming the growing focus on energy savings, Sacmi Forni has, in fact, developed recovery systems both inside and outside the kiln that direct heat towards other machines used in ceramic plants such as the driers located immediately downstream from the presses; in an energy-hungry industry like ceramics, solutions such as these are fast becoming indispensable.
In.Te.Sa. will also be giving – this time at the fair - two further talks: “Introduction to Crono – color management system for ceramic tile production”, scheduled for Tuesday 19th March at 15.45, Wednesday 20th March at 11.15 and Thursday 21st March at 14.15 and “The necessary evolution of digital workflow”, scheduled for Wednesday 20th March at 12.15.
Sacmi is thus confirming its great interest in India, a country which, hinging on the production district of Gujarat and yet also counting on output from other areas throughout the country and neighbouring states, is still one of the most dynamic markets in the world. India, more and more, requires high-automation integrated solutions as opposed to individual machines and needs skilled partner groups such as Sacmi to achieve development and growth.
