7th Complete SACMI Line for Granito Forte

One of Italy’s biggest manufacturing complexes, the Granito Forte ceramics company in Fresagrandinaria (Chieti) completed the purchase of a 7th complete line for manufacturing floor and wall tiles, entirely supplied by SACMI.

The new line for traditional sizes (from 15 cm × 15 cm to 60 cm × 60 cm) is expected to come on stream in the first half of 2016. The showpieces of the line are a continuous mill, downstream of which there are two new SACMI PH 6500 presses for the production of both standard and medium-large tiles; followed by a 25-m-long horizontal dryer and a 117-m roller kiln equipped with the latest heat recovery and energy saving devices. SACMI has also supplied the loading and unloading systems for the kiln. Last but not least come the sorting line and storage system, with automated high-efficiency stackers and palletizers. The first SACMI supply to the Abruzzo-based company dates back to 1995. With this latest project, the number of SACMI machines installed at the Fresagrandinaria plant totals 3 continuous mills, 3 spray dryers, 14 presses, 7 dryers, 7 kilns and 7 sorting lines.
