NordCeram Implemented the Sacmi CONTINUA+ Line

The German company NordCeram has chosen the Italian Sacmi CONTINUA+ line for tiles production as part of a key investment at its Bremerhaven plant.

Finalised in June 2014, the aim of this supply agreement is to make the NordCeram brand more competitive. NordCeram can now extend its porcelain tile size range, with the option of expanding it further in the future. Tile thickness ranges from 6–20 mm and tiles can be given a smooth or “structured” relief surface. The line will be equipped with cutting-edge power compaction control software, thus combining ultra-high performance with user-friendliness. Synergy with the existing production line is also important: the powders used on the CONTINUA+ are, in fact, the same ones employed in traditional pressing, thus allowing the unit to be renewed without affecting output. The new line will also be used together with the EKOROLL finished product packaging system designed by Nuova Fima (a brand by Nuova Sima, the Sacmi Group company specialising in, among others, the development of handling, quality control and end-of-line solutions). Key EKOROLL advantages include maximised cardboard savings and improved corner protection, a factor that can really make the difference, especially on products with high unit costs such as large slabs. Sacmi will also supply a 5-layer horizontal dryer, suitable for handling both large and structured tiles. The currently installed kiln will be revamped to optimise firing curves and maximise surface decoration efficiency while minimizing electricity and gas consumption. An ambitious project, that is part of a wider renewal plan at the Bremerhaven plant. The latter, in fact, will allow NordCeram to reinforce its position at the high end of the market, also thanks to the multitude of decoration possibilities offered by the CONTINUA+ line and the innovative DDD dry digital decorator.
