Keratech unveils its new automatic line for the production of ceramic rollers

Company focusing on innovation and technological stregthening of its structures

Leading manufacturer in the ceramic rollers market, Keratech, part of the  Sacmi and Colorobbia Bitossi Groups, launched a revolutionary fully automatic production line on Tuesday May 3 which will allow its production capacity to be doubled.

The plants, designed and constructed in collaboration with companies of the Sacmi group, include an innovative Riedhammer kiln. This one-of-a-kind kiln allows the loading capacity to be doubled, keeping consumption  practically unchanged and rollers higher than six meters to be produced which was unimaginable just a few years ago!

Gaiotto has designed and developed a fully robotized line to handle these rollers which drastically reduces the cycles and running costs. 

Cesare Pegoraro, the Managing Director of the company, proudly underlines: "...thanks to the use of latest generation robots to handle the rollers and the innovative kiln together with our technological know-how, our most prized asset, we believe we have anticipated the future of the market segment!"

After the President of Confindustria Ceramica Franco Manfredini cut the ribbon, managers of  Keratech accompanied the guests, members of  the Executive Board of Confindustria Ceramica and Entrepreneurs of the Sassuolo ceramic district along with local authorities on a tour of the various roller production lines.
