Different markets, one solution: Sacmi pressure casting

Productivity and reliability on one side, high levels of automation and product quality on the other


Automation and flexibility for small lots and maximum quality, large volumes with a small but significant mix of articles where the key factors are productivity and reliability. These are the apparently opposing requirements of ceramic sanitaryware manufacturers operating on mature and emerging markets, requirements that Sacmi has responded to effectively with a range of pressure casting solutions.

Across this diversity of scenarios, trends and production requirements, it is, however, evident that manufacturers need automated solutions. This is because, whatever the individual situation, they reduce worker effort while boosting workplace health and safety and, on the one hand, lower production costs and times while increasing finished product quality.

This is where Sacmi pressure casting solutions come into play: alongside highly automated single-mould casting cells with quick mould changeovers, the latter also include multi-mould machines with robotized de-moulding and handling, characterized by extremely fast casting cycles and outstanding process repeatability.

Now, with solutions from the ALS and ADS range, cycle times are comparable to or even lower than those achieved on simultaneous de-moulding machines, with all the technical advantages of sequential de-moulding machines: the ability to de-mould vertically or horizontally according to the model, less bulk, an ability to cast deep articles and/or install mobile or elastic resin inserts in the moulds (Sacmi patented technologies).

Starting, then, from the need to combine maximum productivity and flexibility, Sacmi has developed automated solutions for the casting bench manufacture of WCs; the AVB range has been designed for the simultaneous manufacture of different models using different casting cycles. Customers are provided with further added value as they can request not just the machine but the "complete package", from modelling and mould to piece maturing (complete with pre-dryer) and systems for automatic loading of pieces onto the kiln car.
