With businesses in the energy, telecommunications and construction industries, the Visabeira Group
(Portugal), main shareholder in the Vista Alegre Group, continues to make investments giving added value to its brands linked to the production of glassware, crystal glassware and ceramic tableware
. Among these is Cerexport
, leading manufacturer of items in stoneware (ovenware and tableware) which has chosen SACMI-SAMA
for the supply of a new PHO 451 Green
isostatic pressing solution.
Installed and started up in record time, thanks to the highly efficient cooperation between the technical teams of Sacmi and the customer, the new solution works alongside the PHO 650
already in operation at the Aveiro plant since 2017, when it was one of the first presses on the market from SAMA’s new Green Series
that offers lower energy consumption
by as much as 30%
compared to a traditional press.
The new PHO 451 supplied is equipped with an OFM 8-38
universal finishing machine for fettling round and non-round items with max. diameter up to 38 cm unfired
. The new solution stands out for minimum energy consumption and very high output - already more than 500 pieces/hr
in production after the first trial runs - and is the latest addition to the other SAMA isostatic presses already running at Aveiro and at the factories of the other brands in the Group.
The combined use of the two presses will enable Cerexport to expand its production versatility and capacity
, thanks also to the state-of-the-art portfolio of technical solutions that, with this type of press, ranges from the high-performance die coatings
to the interchangeable tools, up to the integration with finishing
for automated control of all operations.
With the solution supplied to Cerexport, the unloading system is also particularly innovative: the articles are not deposited on static trays but are directly stacked onto the conveyor belt
to be transferred automatically to the subsequent work processes.
