New Pearl using technology from System to enter the mega-format ceramic panel segment

August 2017

New Pearl, the largest ceramic tile manufacturer in China, has selected Lamgea technology from System to enter the mega-format ceramic panel segment, aiming to become the leading local producer in this new product category.

The Lamgea mouldless press will be installed later this year at one of New Pearl’s facilities in Foshan and will produce ceramic panels in sizes up to 1,600 by 3,200mm in thicknesses from 6 to 20 mm.

System’s innovative technology can compact atomised powders while guaranteeing almost flawless air removal from the material.  The highly flexible pressing system features various options for customization; the press applies a force of up to 30,000 tons and the work cycle ensures precision throughout the entire process.

New Pearl’s recent investment opens a new and interesting chapter in the technological partnership between System and the Chinese manufacturer.  New Pearl already uses System’s digital decoration technology, with almost 40 Creadigit printers in operation in the Group’s factories in the Guangdong and Jiangxi regions.
