Sardinia-based firm to double output to 12,000 m2/day using a single kiln
The Ceramica Mediterranea plant in Guspini, in the province of Cagliari, has once again decided to choose Sacmi as its supplier. The aim? To double its output to 12 thousand square metres per day via a continuous 24-7 production process that employs a single kiln. The expansion plant includes two PH 3020 presses with a clearance of 2250 mm together with the relevant Sacmi-designed wide dies and a 16.9-metre horizontal ECP 285 drier which leads into the kiln. The kiln itself is a 115 metre long FMS built to cope with very high output rates even with a 50 mm diameter roller combination. Sacmi has also supplied Ceramica Mediterranea – a specialist in ceramic floor and wall tiles – with storage machines (specially designed for direct production plants), the sorting system and the palletizing unit. This last section of the line - an innovative system developed by Sacmi Automation – is the very latest addition to the already comprehensive automatic pallet control vehicle range.
