Part four of SACMI Ceramic Innovation Days
, a series of international meetings illustrating new technologies and opportunities for each stage of the ceramic manufacturing process is just around the corner. The new SACMI Deep Digital Line
– which "vertically digitalizes" the entire process, from forming to post-kiln applications - is set to play a starring role in the event (9 February 2021
, 09:00 and 15:00 CET).
By expanding the digital decoration concept from stand-alone solutions (machines and technologies) to digital control of the entire process
, this line aims to achieve nothing less than an “Aesthetic r-evolution”
. Even at the initial raw material preparation and forming
stages, SACMI Deep Digital Line lets manufacturers merge surface and through-the-body applications
Moreover, being able to implement advanced digital vision, tracking and synchronization
(e.g. coordination of pre-forming decoration with in-line digital printing) at these early stages lets manufacturers use the full potential of digital glazing and decoration.
From the DHD
(for flexible, high performance application of inks and glazes
) to the DDG
, a revolutionary SACMI unit that merges the application of glazes, inks and materials
into a single process, over the years, SACMI has developed solutions of increasingly high performance to meet every market demand.
The new 12-bar DHD
demonstrates this perfectly: not only does it offer fully independent control
of the ink and effects application units and ‘native’ multi-resolution
control, it’s also compatible with the latest generation of water-based inks, making the decoration process more sustainable
The entire SACMI digital decoration line is controlled by HERE software
. Specifically designed for ceramic plants, this SACMI-developed software combines advanced MES functions
with accurate performance and efficiency (KPI
) monitoring at every single stage.
Moreover, on the decoration line HERE works in synergy with CRONO
, the digital graphics piloting
system that, even at the preview stage, allows perfect matching of virtual graphics and finished product; this makes management of small lots and just-in-time production
more efficient and eliminates the need for physical tests
This approach condenses an incredible variety of application sequences
into a single, high-performance, flexible ‘ecosystem’
that responds to market trends in terms of both the ‘uniqueness’ of the ceramic product
and the ability to produce large volumes while optimizing performance and TCO
