Sacmi meets Indian ceramists

A course on tile production technologies at Rajkot in the state of Gujarat

Sacmi recently participated at a training course / workshop titled “The ceramic tile production process: applied technologies and innovative developments”, which provided a unique opportunity to meet Indian ceramists at Rajkot in the state of Gujarat. During this 5-day meeting (21-25th November) the Sacmi Group, represented by its Area Sales Manager, presented an overview of Sacmi-made presses. This presentation largely focussed on the high tonnage, wide-clearance presses that are ideal for production of the large granito ceramic tiles that have aroused such interest on the Indian market in recent years.
During the meeting, organised by the Institute for Foreign Commerce (Ice) and by Acimac near the industrial districts of Morbi, Thangad, Himmatnagar and Mehsana, a course on ceramic tile production technologies was also held by Paolo Zannini from the University of Modena and Reggio Emilia. The aim of this initiative was to raise local businessmen’s and companies awareness of Italian technology and know-how and so enhance penetration of the market by Italian ceramic-making machine and accessory makers. India is now the world’s sixth-largest ceramic producer and, thanks to higher output in Gujarat , output levels are still rising fast. In 2004 total ceramic tile production topped 270 million square metres.
