New TWS tunnel kiln by Riedhammer started up at Charu Ceramic in Bangladesh

Partnership between Great Wall Group and SACMI Group goes from strength to strengt

A member company of the Great Wall Group, Charu Ceramics - founded in close collaboration with Cotto Thailand with the aim of positioning itself in the high-end segment and exporting significant quotas of the Cotto brand - recently tested a new Riedhammer tunnel kiln.

The TWS model kiln, with an overall length of 90 m and a 3600 mm wide inlet, has an output capacity of  2600 pieces a day with a 15-hour work cycle or, in other words, some 750,000 pieces/year. What's more, plans have already been made to double that figure and push annual production beyond 1.5 million pieces. The plant has already been prepared for the arrival of a second, identical kiln.

Fully constructed at Sacmi Riedhammer plants in Europe, the kiln makes extensive use of stainless steel and high-temperature European refractory materials to ensure lasting years of reliable service. The kiln has been designed down to the last detail as per specifications supplied by Great Wall, which has always focused on final product quality. Charu products lie in the high-end large WC segment, with pieces weighing about 20 kg.

Charu Ceramic (which had already purchased two Riedhammer HWS PF 7.5/500/1.9 shuttle kilns, operational since 2016), has also installed a 4-position robotized glazing turret by Gaiotto, complete with a GA2000 robot and the innovative GDA80 needleless spray gun.

With this latest investment, then, Great Wall, one of the country's biggest tile manufacturers and a long-standing purchaser of Sacmi tile manufacturing systems, extends its partnership with the Group to the sanitaryware sector.
