Cerdomus, an Italian tile manufacturer with over 50 years of experience in the sector, has chosen SACMI technology for its large format range, including the company’s Continua+ technology.
The manufacturer is also using SACMI’s products across the rest of its production processes “from drier to kiln, from digital printers to finishing lines”.
After years of partnership with the technology provider on more traditional formats up to 600x1200mm, the company has chosen to expand in the segment of large slabs of various sizes and thicknesses. The project began in 2021, with construction finishing at the Castel Bolognese (Ravenna) site recently, where there is now a production output of over 8,000sqm per day.
Paolo Turbati, president of Cerdomus, said: “Our brand has a clear identity in the market. We have always considered the ceramic product, among the oldest materials in the world, as a source of inspiration for the creation of unique settings, developing our strengths in the widest choice of combinations, formats, thicknesses, decors, styles and material effects. That is why, for this further leap in quality, we chose the world’s benchmark technology in this sector, SACMI’s Continua+”.
A PCR 2000 – part of the Continua+ family – has been installed and commissioned. “We are not only talking about large slabs”, continued Turbati, “but also about the possibility to realise, in a coordinated, flexible and efficient manner, all the sub-formats and furnishing complements that are particularly demanded and appreciated by our customers today. That’s why the SACMI solution responds perfectly to the Cerdomus philosophy: coordinated collections, high quality and product aesthetics”.
With the Sacmi technology, Cerdomus will be able to produce formats up to 1600x3200mm, which the companies say will meet the entire market demand for both the largest formats and coordinated sub-formats.
