CONTINUA + compaction technology for slabs and tiles

The benchmark technology for variable-size, variable-thickness slab and tile manufacturing.


More Productive

CONTINUA+ is the most efficient, highest-productivity technology for the accurately managed manufacture of ceramic slabs and tiles, also producible with traditional bodies. The slabs are, in fact, formed without using a traditional press or mould, ensuring maximum flexibility in terms of size and thickness. Scrap is always below 3% and recyclability is 100%. CONTINUA+ seamlessly integrates the powder forming phase and subsequent digital decoration. The key strengths of this exclusive process are high quality texturing and unrivalled surface shine.

More Connected

CONTINUA+ is natively connected to H.E.R.E (Human Expertise for Reactive Engineering), the information flow organisation system that provides a comprehensive overview of ceramic plant production processes, maximising Digital Manufacturing 4.0 potential.
What’s more, CONTINUA+ is equipped with COMPUTER VISION systems that optimise surface decoration downstream from forming (SVV), making on-slab details even sharper.

More Sustainable

Another key CONTINUA+ advantage is certified sustainability: installed electrical power requirements can be cut by a factor of six (the SACMI PCR2000 runs on just 50 kW), effectively containing CO2 emissions and related costs. In addition to energy savings, very little hydraulic oil is consumed, ensuring further maintenance and waste disposal savings.
Furthermore, CONTINUA+ needs no foundations for its installation and is, when running, silent, vibration-free and dust-free, features that make this technology ground-breaking also in terms of environmental friendliness.

(*) Fired values, shrinkage 8%, bearing in mind that the machine runs at maximum speed 24/7, using its entire effective width (without taking into account any downstream bottlenecks)

(**) Productivity attainable with the high speed kit: 9m/min (optional)
