The landmark technology in the sector of slab and large format production, of variable dimensions and thickness.
High flexibility in the production of tiles and ceramic slabs. Increased productive efficiency. Decreased cost of production.
CONTINUA+ is a revolutionary compacting technology that overcomes the large format productivity constraints, making it possible to change aesthetic effects with extreme ease and leaving ample room to customisation.
The compacting belt of CONTINUA+ is always moving with respect to the ceramic powder, therefore, compared to a steel pad of a conventional press, it never fouls, ensuring the surface of the pressed slab is perfectly smooth and polished.
CONTINUA+ assures perfect integration of the powder forming stage with body effects and subsequent surface decoration with powder and ink in digital mode.
The ceramic slabs are moulded without using a conventional press and a mould intended to a specific format. It is thus possible to obtain porcelain stoneware slabs and tiles in a wide range of thickness and dimensions, customised in surface and body, with greater productivity compared to conventional lines.
The PCR compactor makes it possible to mould slabs with density and resistance similar to conventional pressing. Compacting takes place by using two highly rigid and appropriately motorised belts. The side areas of the powder are contained by non-deformable retainers that assure excellent compaction of the edge thus limiting scraps.
The quality of the relief and the brightness of the surface are the main strengths of this exclusive process.
Thanks to the proprietary technology DDD (Digital Dry Decoration), CONTINUA+ makes it possible to fully exploit the potential of digital design, obtaining innovative aesthetic effects which cannot be achieved with any other type of system.
The CONTINUA+ does not require foundations. The extremely low energy consumption, the absence of noise, vibrations and dustiness mean this is the most innovative technology also from the point of view of environmental impact.
The MDX control system (optional) continuously assures automatic, precise and non destructive measurement of slab density and thickness. It assures the maximum quality of the finished product, thus doing away with manual measurement operations.
