Ceramica Cañuelas unveils its third line

The line is equipped with Sacmi presses, dryer and kiln and is capable of producing up to 36,000 square metres/day.

Ceramica Cañuelas, an Argentine ceramic tile manufacturer founded in 2006, successfully started up its third production line at the end of 2023. The new plant is configured for a production of up to 36,000 square metres per day in 50x50 cm and 60x60 cm floor tile sizes, while also beginning production of the new 60x120 cm size. Sacmi supplied all the key machines, including four PH3950 presses complete with loading devices, an EM5 320 dryer and an FMS355 Maestro kiln, the largest and most productive model ever installed by Sacmi in Argentina.

“For us this is a far-sighted investment that aims to deliver the quality and productivity that have always been our hallmarks,” explains Luiz Pinto, Plant Director. “The decision to install the Maestro kiln means we’ll be able to maintain very high levels of productivity and achieve the desired results in terms of quality and efficiency.”

Consumption was also a major consideration. The kiln is ready for the installation of systems that convey recovered heat to the dryer, demonstrating Sacmi’s commitment to integrated management of all production stages. This approach not only reduces the environmental footprint of the ceramic process but also enhances the productivity and profitability of the plant.
