Ancora supplies large slab finishing machines to Ceramicas Lourdes

November 2018

Argentinian tile producer Ceramicas Lourdes, based at Burzaco, Buenos Aires, has commissioned Ancora to supply a complete finishing plant for its factory devoted to the production of porcelain slabs in sizes up to 1,600 by 3,200mm.

The line consists of two 12 and 20 head lapping machines with a full-field machining capacity of 6,000 sq. metres per day, two 4-head coating machines for application of the final protective treatment, a transverse engraving machine, and a longitudinal engraving machine.  These two machines can be used in combination to obtain strips of various sizes, from the traditional 200 by 800mm through to 200 by 1,600mm and 800 by 2,400mm planks.

The finishing line also includes a Speed Dry squaring machine that offers squaring capacity directly at the kiln exit for volumes of 12,000 sq. metres per day.

The new line will enable Ceramicas Lourdes to strengthen its position in the domestic market by offering a wide range of innovative solutions in sizes and thicknesses that are still highly innovative for Argentina.
