Cooperativa Ceramica d’Imola started up a new Continua+ line from Sacmi in 2017; the first step in a three-year €40 million investment project. The company also fired up a new 140-metre Eko kiln that will serve both the new line and the conventional pressing line. The finishing department has also been entirely refurbished.
The new plant joins the two Continua lines coupled with PH10000 presses that have been in operation since 2011 and 2014. These lines are used for the production of unglazed tiles up to 1,200 by 1,200mm for the Imola and Leonardo brands. However they had been running at full capacity and were insufficient to meet current market demand.
The new line will produce tiles of 600 by 1,200mm and larger for the Imola and Faenza brands; as well as large-size panels and slabs, such as the 1,200 by 2,600mm slabs presented at Cersaie 2017.
