Steuler Group: “Sacmi’s CONTINUA+ offers the best response to our development goals”

Operational at the Nord Ceram plant in Bremerhaven since March, this is the first such solution to be installed in Germany since the launch of the technology in 2014

German firm Nord Ceram has gone for Sacmi-developed CONTINUA+ technology, making it one of the first 10 companies in the world – and the very first in Germany – to install this solution, which was previewed at Tecnargilla 2014. Located in Bremerhaven, on Germany’s North coast, and part of the Steuler Group, Nord Ceram has decided to make a name for itself in the large porcelain slab segment by relying on Sacmi’s innovative continuous compaction and decoration technology, which poses no restrictions on size or thickness.

“Continuous compaction technology”, points out Karl Heinz Fabel, technical manager of Nord Ceram, “represents an effective response to our needs in terms of the future development of our production facilities”. Among the advantages of the solution, points out Mr. Fabel in an extensive interview with the prestigious Ceramic World Review, is that size and thickness ranges can be considerably broadened while simultaneously boosting product quality and line efficiency.

The key factors of this plant engineering solution – installed and tested in record time and fully operative as of 24th March – are outstanding flexibility, ensured by both the broad thickness range (from 6 to 20 mm) and integration with the unfired material cutting line which eliminates both scrap and production downtimes. The new porcelain tile sizes range from 25x150 to 120x120, with thickness between 10 and 20 mm. Together with the new CONTINUA+, Sacmi also supplied the company with a horizontal 5-layer dryer – suitable for both large sizes and structured products – and the digital decoration department featuring the DDD (dry digital decoration) unit. Lastly, there is the new Ekoroll packaging solution by NuovaFima (a NuovaSima brand), a Sacmi Group company specialising in the design and construction of end-of-line solutions; this is characterised, among other things, by excellent savings on cardboard consumption and 100%-guaranteed corner protection, highly important on high-end products such as large ceramic slabs.
