New horizons for SACMI grinding, which has been leading the way in terms of innovation, process automation, reliability and energy savings for over thirty years. Now, with this latest delivery to global giant RAK Ceramics, SACMI has sold more than 300 MMC mills worldwide, a milestone to match the over 700 SACMI continuous grinding plants that have been installed by key players across the worldwide ceramics industry.
Back in the mid-1980s SACMI was already busy refining the continuous grinding process, an extremely innovative solution at that time. Indeed, it revolutionised production in terms of efficiency, versatility and the ability to implement growing levels of automation. Since 2005 SACMI grinding solutions have been modular, providing at least 15% more energy savings with respect to the previous range and much more extensive automation.
These solutions combine unique versatility and performance with the total reliability that has won so much customer appreciation: just consider the fact that the first continuous mill, built by SACMI back in 1984, is still in operation.
With this latest order - which provides a further boost for the plant where the Continua+ slab/large tile line is installed - SACMI has again strengthened its close partnership with RAK Ceramics. One of the world's top five ceramic companies, RAK produces 110 million m2 of floor and wall tiles and markets them in 150 countries via the Group's numerous branches and facilities, located across five continents.
