In the last five years alone 50 new “GREEN series” lines have been supplied. The market continues to respond to the high flexibility and top performance offered by SACMI-SAMA pressure casting technology.
More than 200 pressure casting machines from the PCM range for tableware items have been sold around the world by SACMI-SAMA. Of these, over 50 solutions are part of the new “GREEN series”, with which the SACMI Group has remade its mark on the market over the last five years, leading the way with its focus on efficiency and energy savings.
Top performance, together with optimum cell flexibility, are the key features explaining the 20 year- long success that these solutions have found in the Tableware sector during the switch from mainly manual work processes to totally automated lines from piece casting and demoulding to drying and finishing operations.
The main advantages of the PCM “GREEN series” include; energy savings of up to 85%, eliminating the use of cooling water and significantly reducing noise levels to safeguard operator health & safety. A further opportunity, in addition to the vast choice of configurations and tonnage (from 100 to 150 t), is provided by the possibility to install machines with double head and/or double plate to increase the number of moulds installed and therefore the production output with the same space occupied.
Thanks to their capacity to combine full automation with a high level of customization, these solutions have been purchased by numerous leading customers on the market where demand is still strong for these modular machines suitable for handling a wide production range.
Together with their special SAMApor macroporous resin moulds, the PCM line brings together top quality and process repeatability with optimum durability of the machine and moulds. As with other SAMA solutions in the Tableware sector, this proposal both meets the requirements of the largest manufacturing Groups – with the ability to position the level of innovation at different levels according to geographical area, products, markets – as well as those of a smaller size who are nevertheless focused on product excellence and state-of-the-art technology.
A further contribution to achieve efficiency, quality and process repeatability is provided by the innovative 3D simulation software which allows the user to check the cell overall dimensions and work cycles during the design stage, carried out together with SACMI-Gaiotto. Last, but not least, customers are able to carry out all required trials and industrial tests at the SAMA pilot plant and R&D centre.
