ENERGIEKER joins forces with SACMI to focus on the large slab market

New, complete plant became operational just before the start of Cersaie. At its heart lies SACMI Continua+ technology, with a full complement of downstream decoration, handling and firing solutions.

The goal? To reposition the EnergieKer brand towards the promising large decorated ceramic slab market. The partner? The SACMI Group, which supplied the Pavullo-based company with a complete plant for the manufacture of slabs as large as 1200x2400 and 1600x3200, the plant being the last stage of an ambitious plan to invest in the best available large slab technology launched back in 2013.

The new plant was installed and started up last summer, just in time to present the new EnergieKer product range at the international Cersaie fair in September. Needless to say, at its technological heart lies a Continua+ line, the SACMI solution that sets the worldwide standard for the manufacture of ceramic slabs of different size and thickness. SACMI also supplied all the digital decoration, glazing, handling and sorting systems, plus a latest-generation EKO kiln equipped with every possible feature to maximise quality and minimise consumption.

Downstream from the compactor, the DHD 1808 digital printer by SACMI-Intesa plays a pivotal role: equipped with 8 colour bars, it belongs to that latest generation of SACMI solutions that has opened the way towards deep digital decoration (i.e. complete digitalization of the glazing line and unmatched on-tile tactile and depth effects). With the new plant now up and running, EnergieKer is looking to intercept a broad swathe of market segments thanks to its new-found ability to work continuously with different sub-sizes and top-quality finishes.

This plant sees SACMI strengthen its partnership with EnergieKer, a union begun 8 years ago when the firm purchased its first traditional pressing lines, kilns, dryers, complete glazing/sorting lines, spray dryers and continuous grinding mills.
