Hkkjrh; fljsfeDl 2014 esa Lokxr gS! Welcome to Indian Ceramics 2014! Paola Giacomini - p.giacomini@tiledizioni.it

Indian Ceramics 2014 is organised by MMI India (a branch of Messe München International), relies on support from the Indian Government and collaborates with the most important ceramics associations. It aims to exceed the figures registered for the 2013 edition, when 164 exhibitors and over 5,000 visitors attended. Indian Ceramics 2014 will see the participation of the major international companies in the sector, who recognise the exhibition as an excellent opportunity to showcase the latest technological innovations. Italian producers abound, with esteemed companies like Sacmi, System, SITI B&T, LB Officine Meccaniche, Smac, Air Power, Setec, Tecnoferrari, Mectiles, Cielle and Tecnopress representing the ceramic machine industry sector; Bernini, Bongioanni, Capaccioli, Icra and Tecnofiliere from the heavy

clay and refractory plant production sector; Poligraph, Stylgraph and Tecnografica as graphic design firms, in addition to Smalticeram, Smaltochimica and Lamberti for glazes and additives. The Italian companies will occupy a total area of around 800 sqm, over half of which will be taken up by the traditional collective stand organised by ACIMAC (Association of Italian Manufacturers of Machinery and Equipment for Ceramics) and ICE (Italian Trade Promotion Agency). There will be a fair number of Spanish companies present - including Esmalglass-Itaca, Torrecid, Cretaprint, Verdes, Hito, Megacolor and Beralmar - and Germany will also attend, exhibiting brands such as Dorst, Eirich, Händle and Netzsch. Other prestigious names will also be present, including the American company Ebi Ceramicure and the multinational company for raw materials - Imerys, while a collective stand hosting exhibitors from China will be located in Pavilion B. Indian Ceramics will be accompanied by a high-calibre supporting programme of side events. One of these is the first edition of Innovation Exchange: a platform which provides insights into the latest trends, processes and technologies in the ceramic industry. It takes the form of a series of 30-minute lectures delivered by industry experts. The Technical Workshop, to be held on 27 February, is particularly interesting. Here, visitors can attend technical presentations by De Boer Damle Pvt., Imerys Ceramics, Netzsch Grinding & Dispersing - Netzsch España, Smaltochimica, System Ceramics, Riedhammer/Sacmi Group, SITI B&T and Nutec Bickley Kilns. WE HOPE YOU ENJOY INDIAN CERAMICS! 

India, the world’s third largest tile producer with volumes close to the 700 million square metre mark, has by now got us used to its impetuous growth rates. The immense volumes turned out by this key market have led industrial suppliers of technologies, raw materials and services worldwide to pay it special attention and develop a closer collaboration with its operators. So it’s no coincidence that, in a move to mark the IX edition of Indian Ceramics in Ahmedabad - the biggest Indian exhibition for suppliers of ceramic tiles, sanitaryware and heavy clay industries - Ceramic World Review, the most important international magazine for the ceramic industry, will publish its first special issue in the Hindi language. The idea is to be able to offer an even more effective communication channel to the Indian clients, in addition to the English version published internationally.

Kajaria powers ahead Kajaria Ceramics is one of the best known tile producers in the Indian subcontinent. Set up by Ashok Kajaria in December 1985 in Sikandrabad, in the northern state of Uttar Pradesh, the company produced its first tile in 1988. Since then it has grown steadily and now has 7 plants, 2,150 employees and an annual output of 45.2 million square metres of tiles. The company has always combined growth with large-scale technological investments to improve product quality and expand its portfolio. The company’s goal is clear and ambitious: “We aim to reach an output of 100 million sq.m/year by March 2018,” Ashok Kajaria told us during our meeting.

CWR: What factors have helped Kajaria achieve its dominant position in the local industry? Ashok Kajaria: Kajaria was founded with a vision to deliver the best quality tiles to our customers. Since our genesis, quality has always been our driving force. Over the course of time, we pushed back boundaries and pursued innovations to leave a lasting mark in the market. But the most important factor that has contributed to our success is our people – our employees,

associates and above all the unswerving faith and support of our dealers. CWR: What range of products do you offer today? A. Kajaria: Over the past 25 years, Kajaria Ceramics has expanded its production capacity to 45.2 million sq.m/year. Today, we offer more than 1,000 designs of ceramic wall and floor tile and polished and glazed porcelain tiles, from 20x20 cm small size tiles to 60x120 cm large formats. We recently launched two new glazed porcelain collections called The Size (60x120 cm) and The Square (80x80 cm), which are the biggest favourites amongst our customers. CWR: What investments in production technology have you made recently? A. Kajaria: We have installed a new plant from Sacmi for the production of large-format glazed porcelain tiles to international quality standards. We have also expanded our number of digital machines to 8 sourced from Europe. CWR: What is your opinion of digital technology? A. Kajaria: I have a very high opinion of this technology. We have been using it since 2010 and the advantages are plain to see. It has enabled us to increase productivity and rationalise other production costs, as well as expand our product range and add value to our floor and wall tile collections. Digitally decorated tiles are becoming increasingly popular amongst Indian consumers. Kajaria is now able not only to produce tiles with varied designs but also to offer the largest collection of digitally printed tiles in India. CWR: Do you adopt green technologies in your production process? A. Kajaria: At Kajaria, we are very much concerned about the environment and always endeavour to reduce the negative impact that a company like ours may have on the environment. We have always striven to use technology that guarantees innovation, sustainability and reduced consumption of natural resources. For example, all our plants use natural gas. We have been awarded the Green Building Certificate and ISO 14001 for environment management in recognition of our eco-friendly production facilities. CWR: What is the impact of energy costs? A. Kajaria: The cost of energy and fuel is a big issue in India. We source power from the grid and natural gas from GAIL

(Gas Authority of India Limited). The price of natural gas has risen over the last 3-4 years and the continued weakening of the rupee has also adversely impacted the cost of fuel. However, we have been able to absorb the pressure of energy costs and maintain our margins by moving continuously towards value-added products. CWR: How do you see the economic situation in India today? A. Kajaria: Over the last year, the Indian economy has seen a slowdown and even today the general business sentiment is low. Nonetheless, the tile industry has been growing consistently for many years, largely due to the low base. A major contribution to the growth of the Indian tile industry has come from the replacement of marble – the most widely used floor and wall covering material in the country – by tiles. CWR: What are the latest figures for the sector? A. Kajaria: Although India is the third largest producer and consumer in the world with a production of 617 million sq.m in 2011, per capita consumption is still just 0.52 sq.m/year, the lowest amongst the top 10 consumer countries including China, Iran, Vietnam and Indonesia. The Indian tile industry has been growing at an annual rate of around 15% over the last twenty years. Half of the industry is controlled by the top 10-12 players, which are present nationwide and command a brand premium. The another half, consisting of around 350 small scale and unbranded players, are located in the state of Gujarat in western India. The big national players have now entered into tie-up agreements with small-scale producers to sell their good quality products under their own brands. Kajaria has acquired 4 such plants over the last two years. CWR: Are you worried about the high imports of tiles from China? A. Kajaria: No, Indian producers are becoming cost efficient and are increasing the scale of operations to lower production costs. Moreover, India is producing tiles to international standards in all segments and sizes, which can match the Chinese and even the European levels of quality. Freight costs also act as a deterrent to Chinese imports, along with the strengthening of the Chinese currency and the weakening of the rupee.

CWR: What are the strengths of the Indian tile industry? A. Kajaria: The low cost of production is certainly one of the strengths of the Indian ceramic industry, which delivers international quality products at an affordable price. The strong demand from the replacement market is also helping the growth of the industry. CWR: What are the biggest problems? A. Kajaria: Certainly the price of natural gas, which is around 12-13 dollars per MMBtu, the highest in the world. We hope that fuel prices will go down in the near future, allowing us to become more competitive globally. CWR: Does Kajaria operate in export markets? A. Kajaria: We are strongly focused on our domestic market as local demand is good. We export just 1% of our total sales volume, mainly to the Gulf countries. CWR: What are your distribution channels in the local market? A. Kajaria: We sell our products nationwide through 850 dealers, who in turn sell to sub-dealers. In addition we sell to big projects directly. We also have 150 plus dealer outlets wich exclusively sell Kajaria products only, thereby giving more focus on displays as well as sales.We have also strengthened our manufacturing presence by acquiring companies in West and South India, making logistics simpler and more cost effective for these regions. CWR: What kinds of tiles are most in demand amongst consumers? A. Kajaria: Market trends have shifted towards large sizes. Following this trend, we have increased our product portfolio with larger formats such as 60x120 cm and 80x80 cm for floors and 30x90 cm for walls. Polished tiles are still the preferred choice in tier II and III cities, but in the largest metropolises there is a trend towards products with satin, wood or rustic finishes. CWR: What other projects do you have in the pipeline? A. Kajaria: It is a continuous journey. In April 2013 we acquired another plant for vitrified tiles in Gujarat and we are also in the process of expanding our capacity in our southern plant. Investments are a key component of our plans. Over time we intend to continue to expand using all available opportunities, whether green field or brown field projects, further acquisitions, and continued outsourcing. CWR: How do you see your company in 5 years’ time? A. Kajaria: We will continue to expand and expect to become a force to be reckoned with throughout Asia. We are aiming to reach an output of 100 million sq.m/year by March 2018. Our goal is to become one of the top ten tile companies in  the world.

A digital passage to India The acquisition of new sites, the decision to adopt digital decoration technology, strong investments in R&D and a keen commitment to the environment: these are just some of the strengths which have contributed to the success of Orient Bell, one of the leading Indian tile producers. Operating since 1977, the turnover of the company is 6.2 billion rupees, approx 73 million Euro. The company has embraced modernity in all senses of the word: “We are a techno-friendly company”, said Mahendra K. Daga, Chairman & Managing Director of Orient Bell, speaking on the subject of their notable presence on the web and in social media. Indeed, the company has proven itself highly capable of using these marketing and communication tools to the advantage of customers.

lain tiles with the “Orient Tiles” and “Bell Tiles” brands in three modern plants located in Sikandrabad (in Uttar Pradesh, in the north), Hoskote – Bangalore (in the south of India) and Dora – Vadodara (in Gujarat, in the western part of the country). The total production capacity, close to 30 million sq.m/year, and the location of the plants in three different regions of India, enable us to serve the whole Indian market with quick delivery times, and with a floor and wall tile range in different sizes, produced with exclusive cutting-edge technologies (including four patent pending technologies). All of this gives us the edge over the competition. Our focus is not exclusively on quantity, but rather - and primarily - on quality and design, which is developed by Spanish and Indian graphics studios. We use the latest digital printing technology for our decoration; in fact, we have more digital printers than any other ceramics company in India: we are equipped with a Kerajet printer and seven Tecnoferrari printers. The versatility of these printers, together with the combination of inks, enables us to reproduce marbles, stones, woods and high definition pictures using every colour, so offering our customer the possibility to match our products to any kind of décor. CWR: Orient Bell is known for being an environmentally friendly company...

M. K. Daga: We are a member of the Indian Green Building Council and we have already earned over 50,000 tons of carbon credits from international agencies for our “green” production processes. These include using waste heat and sawdust in the spray dryer instead of natural gas. We also use other means to save energy, and at the moment we are the lowest energy-consuming tile plant in India. Our Bangalore plant is the only one in India that uses a dry process, which consumes 30% less fuel than wet process plants. Furthermore, the waste waters are treated and used for agricultural irrigation. CWR: Orient Bell is also very active in terms of R&D, as the latest patents demonstrate. M. K. Daga: Orient Bell has always been an innovative and environmentally friendly company. This approach, which is very much in our DNA, has encouraged us to invest in R&D, and to develop new technologies and products that not only help our customers, but also society and the world at large. We currently have four technology patents pending, that have been tested in various Indian, Italian and British laboratories; these tests confirm our product claims in terms of quality and environmental and health protection. We are open to evaluating any form of cooperation and technology licensing opportunities with reputed tile companies who share our belief in providing innovative tile solutions. CWR: Can you describe these innovations? M. K. Daga: “Forever tiles” technology makes our tiles extremely abrasion resistant and fit for use in high traffic areas. Our tiles reach a score of 8 on the MOHS scale of hardness (whereas diamond scores 10 and iron 4) and even repeated attempts at scratching the surface can be resisted. “Germfree tiles” technology has been proven to remove more than 99.5% of bacteria from ceramic surfaces. These tiles are also proven to be 10 times safer than ceramic cookware, and are particularly suited for use in areas in which hygiene is crucial, such as homes, health-

care centres, schools and public places. “Cool Tiles” is a range of ceramic roof tiles with a Solar Reflective index (SRI) value of 103, capable of reducing the temperature of a building by more than 20°C, thus enabling a large energy saving (for cooling purposes) and helping to combat global warming. The fourth patent is “Life Tiles”. These surfaces are treated with a special coating of Titanium dioxide (TiO2), along with other special materials which make these tiles photocatalytic. This gives the product three amazing qualities: they kill more than 99.2% of germs, they have self-cleaning properties and neutralize smog and pollution, and finally they convert harmful NOx gases into harmless moisture. Just one thousand square meters of Life Tiles neutralize more pollution than 150 trees. What is most interesting is that we can combine two different technologies in the same tile. For example, we offer Forever Tiles plus Germfree Tiles, Forever Tiles plus Life Tiles, and Cool Tiles plus Life Tiles. CWR: How is your sales activity organized? M. K. Daga: As mentioned previously, we are in a position to cover the whole country, as we have three plants in three strategic locations in India. Both our brands, Orient and Bell, are available at over 4,000 retailers across the country. The company has offices/depots in most of the state capitals and a large team of sales personnel to provide prompt customer service. We are also focusing on our retail business, and have now opened our own Tile Boutiques across the country. By the end of the current financial year, we will have over 150 Orient & Bell Tile Boutiques. CWR: Indian ceramic tile production is growing very fast, responding to the equally fast increase in the construction industry. What is the current trend in the sector? M. K. Daga: The ceramic tiles industry in India has followed international trends, characterized by excess capacities and falling margins. The Indian tile industry, despite an overall slowdown of the economy, continues to grow at a healthy 15% per year. The so-called “organized sector” comprises approximately 14 major companies and groups. The current income of the organized sector is over 72 billion rupees (approx. 860 million euro). The “unorganized sector” accounts for nearly 60% of the total ceramics industry in terms of production and turnover, which clearly indicates the growth potential of this sector. India is the third largest tile producer in the world, but it doesn’t currently figure on the list of major exporting countries, even if Indian exports are rising at an accelerating rate annually.

new construction, the refurbishment market presents a huge degree of potential for those manufacturers, like us, who aim for high technical quality and added value products. CWR: On the contrary, what are the competitive points of strength of the industry? M. K. Daga: The main strength of the Indian tile industry lies in its large market and potential for future growth. CWR: What about the situation of the Indian building industry and market? M. K. Daga: There is definitely a growing real estate sector in the country, coupled with rapid urbanization and increasing income levels. The real estate industry accounts for almost 65% - 70% of the total demand for tiles in India, whereas demand from the refurbishment market is only 12%. These figures encourage companies like ours to concentrate more on B2B business, while continuing to invest in new display centres through our Tile Boutiques. Residential and commercial projects, the introduction of larger format tiles and the availability of tiles decorated with digital technology are the key drivers of demand in India. We expect digital tiles to play a larger role in driving demand in the coming years. CWR: With such a huge local demand, are you planning to increase your production? M. K. Daga: We have recently acquired the Bell Tile brand and two manufacturing plants along with it, therefore, at present, we are focusing on utilizing our own manufacturing capacity, while, in the past, we outsourced to ten or so other companies. CWR: What does Orient Bell offer that most sets it apart from the competition? M. K. Daga: Our brand offers Indian consumers contemporary global designs at amazing value for money. Our tiles are the product of a fusion of European trends & aesthetics with the unique use of hues & colours to create an Indian vibrancy. We are already the leader in India when it comes to innovative technologies in the industry. Apart from our patent pending innovations, we also focus on new digital and communication technologies. Our social and digital media achievements include over 400,000 “Likes” on our Facebook page, an iPad app (“TileStyles”), virtual e-showrooms on our company website and “TilesTalk”, a free training and information service for clients which is serviced by a toll-free number, website and mobile devices. With all these initiatives, we are working to build stronger brands and create larger customer pull. Also, we are one of the most environmentally conscious tile manufacturers and are proud to be responsible  corporate citizens.

Jigar Trivedi: We produce approximately 2,500 pieces/day including normal and one-piece WC bowls, cisterns, washbasins and pedestals. In the context of Indian sanitaryware producers, we rank as a large/medium company. Just like the rest of the Sompura Group, Euro-Anchor has grown rapidly and, despite the high degree of automation recently adopted, employs 300 people who are dedicated to all production phases - from raw material processing (we also have our own quartz and kaolin mines) to glaze preparation.

The Euro Anchor facility

J. Trivedi: Until recently, our production process was entirely manual: from casting to glazing, right up to the finish. This decision was obviously based on the low labour costs. The increase in labour costs and the need to become more competitive also on a qualitative level dictated the transition towards automatic machines. For now we have focussed on systems for glaze and body production (for example the new mixers) as well as automated glazing systems and spray booths. Our Setec glazing robot was the first of its kind in Thangadh, a city which is home to many sanitaryware producers. Some months later a twin robot was launched by Ariston Ceramic, a Sompura Group company. Another machine on our line is the “Upward”, designed to automatically glaze siphons and rims. All our investments have been aimed at achieving a decisive turning-point in Euro-Anchor growth. Not only have we been in a position to reduce the number of personnel involved in specific operations, and reduce the processing times in the (previously manual) post-glazing phases, we have also considerably improved the quality of the finished product as well as the first choice yield. This is a crucial step towards satisfying the demand of an exacting market like Europe’s, where we export the majority of our products. CWR: A 40% growth in 2012 is a truly impressive result. How is 2013 going? J. Trivedi: It’s true. Our expansion was extremely rapid and, thanks to the investments made last year, 2013 is also going very well. Our goal now is to work in order to consolidate this growth trend, seeking to acquire new market shares in pre-established areas (such as Poland, Holland, Romania, Serbia, Austria and some African and South American markets) as well as markets that are new to us. It is, of course, imperative that we remain open to change and introduce new technologies and production methods which enable us to move with the times. CWR: To what extent was it also necessary to invest in technical training for the personnel to work with the new technologies?

J. Trivedi: It would have been impossible to get where we are today so quickly, had we simply bought the latest generation machines and failed to provide adequate training. Technology is fundamental, but without assistance and personnel training in terms of machine operation and maintenance, these state-of-theart systems would not get us very far. It is very important to establish a trust relationship with the technological partners - in our case Setec from Civita Castellana, Italy. Setec not only supplied us with machines, they also provided us with their expertise: they trained our personnel, provided for modelling and chemi- Glazing robot cal analysis of our raw materials and resolved problems relating to formulation and firing curve. CWR: To what extent are environmental concerns important to your production process? J. Trivedi: There’s not a modern company in the world that can grow without being conscious of the environment. In our case, for example, we offer a range of sanitary ware with water-saving flush-systems as well as the latest generation antibacterial surface treatments. We were the first company in India to employ Setec’s nanotechnology - the titanium-dioxide based BS02, highly sought after in the West. CWR: What are your goals for the near future? J. Trivedi: We have spent the last few months working on plans for a new facility which will produce particular types of sanitaryware. We are not talking about, unusual products, but rather items which are not of much interest to the Indian market but very popular in the West. We can’t reveal too much, partly because we are still negotiating the details, but it will certainly involve further collaboration with Setec.

Hkkjrh; bZaV m|ksx vk/kqfud çkS|ksfxdh ds jkg ij Modern technology for the Indian brick industry Established in 1986, JJB is today one of the leading Indian brick manufacturing company. Based in the city of Godhra (Gujarat State), JJB has been involved over the last 23 years in some of the most modern Indian architectures, marvellous structures like IIM in Ahmedabad, IIM in Indore, and the MS University in Baroda. The brilliant success of the company is largely due to the vision of a young entrepreneur, Mr. K N Hemrajani, who in the mid ‘80s decided that it was time for the Indian market to shift from the existing poor quality bricks to new high quality products, and since the company’s incorporation, the tremendous belief in supreme quality has always been the driver and the mission of the family brickworks. The main objective of the new production unit was to deliver value for money to the buyer and to manufacture a product with a difference. To reach this goal, JJB had to move to modern technologies, introducing them into a field, brick manufacturing, which was still deprived of technological advancements in the Country.

Since the beginning, the company has been focusing on manufacturing hand molded clay bricks. Through rigorous practical research, JJB has developed a unique production system manufacturing flawless high quality bricks

which are regarded as the finest quality bricks in India. The company enjoys an absolute monopoly in the Indian facing bricks market, which has been growing at a staggering rate of around 100% (y-o-y) over the last 10 years. It also owns huge clay deposits in the form of land holdings by the proprietor and his family members. In the recent past, the two sons of the founder, Tarun and Ilesh Hemrajani, foreseeing the need of both quantity and different quality products for the market, decided together with their family to invest, first in India, into new technology brick process. A nearly complete line for extrusion products was introduced on-site, launching JJB to new absolute levels into brick production and allowing his staff to challenge new market requests. In fact today JJB is able to supply new shapes of bricks which were never supplied before. The investment needed first of all an investment in time and trips to visit several plants in China, Singapore, Malaysia, Germany, Belgium, Algeria, Qatar, Netherlands, Spain and France, discovering the most recent applications and solutions in the brick production. After the studying period, the complete line was erected and nowadays is consisting of box feeder, roller mill, mixer and extruder in the preparation line. Automatic cutter, auto-

Even the “digital glazes” that have appeared recently on the market continue to be solvent-based products that cannot be applied in large quantities. Intesa is now proposing a new technology that brings the creation of a fully digitalised glazing line a step closer. Thanks to the exclusive printing technology developed by Intesa-Sacmi, the new Colora HW allows for controlled application of glazes with similar characteristics to those of glazes applied with conventional systems.

Safeguarding health With a view to safeguarding the health of the operators engaged both before and after the production and use of the ink, Colorobbia has identified two different but equally important levels with which to define its own responsibilities: • Responsibilities towards the market, in order to ensure maximum protection with regard to the health of the end users; Colorobbia was the first company to approach the market with a complete range of inks that were not classified as hazardous. • Responsibilities towards workers. As a form of responsibility towards all its workers, Colorobbia has always avoided using substances classified as hazardous when manufacturing its inks.

Preventing technical problems The objective of Colorobbia is, indeed, that of preventing a series of technical problems that may appear when the inks do not have an adequate affinity with water or glycolic acid-based materials (e.g. materials applied via bell glazing, with rollers, flat mesh, …). The most common defects encountered when using extremely water-resistant inks are: • Surface cracks/water-repellent defects, • They becomes matt and fire-resistant (in certain firing conditions), • Uneven colour. To meet this objective, Colorobbia has therefore also paid particular attention to the choice of the organic material used, which is a fundamental component of the ink "system". The Range The Colorobbia Digital Space range aims to meet the requirements of digital decoration by providing a wide choice of technical and also aesthetic solutions. Our objective, as always, is to increase the value of the finished product. The range is composed of the following series of products: • C-Inks: the range of consolidated pigmented inks for digital

decoration, including cyan, brown, beige, reddish beige, yellow, pink, green and black. This range has recently been enriched by the addition of a new particularly high performance yellow ink with a significantly higher intensity than its predecessor. • C-Shine: the range of inks with non-traditional effects that allow the user to obtain, for example, metallic surfaces. • C-Glaze: the range of inks with more traditional characteristics for digital applications that includes a white and a matt ink, and which has recently been expanded with the addition of a unique primer/reactive. The latter is absolutely nontoxic, scentless and has the same base solvent as all the other Colorobbia Digital Space inks. This ink has a high level of reactivity even with a low load, develops with a neutral tone and has a ceramic function comparable to that achieved with the same effect applied by traditional means. The new frontier beyond digital decoration: Smart Digital Glazing Colorobbia, always at the forefront in proposing itself as a reference partner, also in cases which represent the new technological frontiers of our sector, is actively working on a collection of smart solutions for the complete digitalisation of the ceramic process. Thanks to our continuous collaboration with the main systems manufacturers in the sector, Colorobbia hopes to also gain a reputation as a key player in the digital glazing market, with a range that includes: • Water-based materials (engobes and glazes) which are suitable for ceramic application by way of digital glazing, and fully compliant with Colorobbia's social responsibility policy; • Materials which are suitable for different production technologies (wall and floor tiles) and versatile at different weights of application (from 200 g/sqm to 1,000g/sqm), so enabling the printer to obtain a wide range of effects on the finished tile. • Materials that are capable of working accurately, with applications in blocks of colour that cover the entire surface, or also of replicating the structural effect, and therefore simulating possible reliefs. Conclusions Colorobbia firmly believes in a model of sustainable development and attributes prime importance to the health of its operators within its industrial policy. It strives to combine these two aspects as effectively as possible, and to continue guaranteeing the premium quality standards and the high level of innovation which has always made its products stand out. 

Digital lines: integrated solutions

çkS|ksfxdh

Digital decoration, just like all other forms of expression, always originates from a design, which may be a piece of marble, a stone, a piece of wood, a fabric or an innovative design, but it can be traced back and separated into its basic components, which are Structure, Colour, Effect and Texture. For example, if we take the phases of development of a design such as wood, our study always begins by observing our reference model. The structure is identified through a scan performed with a laser scanner, or a high definition optical scan. The high resolution file obtained in this way is then developed graphically and transformed into an engraving file, ready to create Rubbers or Pads for the press using a laser engraver. During the production phase, this new technique, which is much more accurate than the traditional one, allows the digital decorating machine to accurately apply the design to the structure of the tile. This allows the colours, shades and textural effects which are typical of natural wood and stone to be enhanced, so creating products that can often not be distinguished from their original, natural counterparts. In order to succeed in matching the digital design to the various structures that the press can produce, an instrument that identifies the structure is required, and it must be possible to synchronise this with the digital decorating machines present on the glazing line. The colour of the sample wood, which we normally refer to as the “design of the wood”, is usually created using a digital back that acquires the image at an extremely high resolution. The file obtained in this way is developed in order to create the design-structure combinations. It is next transformed into a file that will then be loaded on the digital decorating machine. Here too, intervening on the graphics is fundamental, as we not only have the opportunity to create true reproductions of nature, but also to improve the natural colours and shades of the piece with designs based on new, attractive tones, or by Evoseven

creating innovative stone/wood or wood/cement combinations, etc. Furthermore, a true reproduction of the originals is not sufficient to meet the requirements of the market, which seeks a range of different versions of the same design, all centred on and coupled with the limited number of structures provided by the press. Some of the technical characteristics that make wood come alive are tactile sensations and not merely optical effects. Natural wood has a coarse texture that the touch recognises as authentic. For example, in natural wood, the tread makes some areas shiny and others rough. To translate these effects into ceramics, we need different decorative elements: the press, which reproduces identical elements to the original samples; a digital decorating machine (Evoseven or Evofive), which recognises incoming structures and matches the appropriate design to each one; a second, smaller digital decorating machine, such as the Evothree, which then applies a textural effect, for example, in this case, a devitrifier. Devitrifier is a common inkjet ink produced by the major ink manufacturers, which reacts with the surface of the base glaze on the tile (in this example a semi-polished surface), and breaks the ordered chains of silica, so alternating a matt appearance with the polished effect of the glaze in the areas it touches. The tile will therefore have the structure, given by the press, the colour, given by the digital file, and the typical appearance of polished wood on the crests, and a matt appearance on the lower parts of the surface. The technical reasons which justify the use of various synchronised digital decorating machines, rather than one sole decorating machine equipped with many applications, can easily be explained: the new generation print heads allow large quantities of ink to be released, and the use of textural applicaThe colour bar tions requires signifi-

cant quantities of ink to be deposited. Digital decorating machines, which are becoming increasingly compact, can therefore release more ink than the quantity that the tile is capable of absorbing between one application and the next. Therefore, the last bars would end up having to decorate a wet, semi-finished piece. The ink in contact with the wet part would begin to migrate from where it had been applied, losing definition and failing to decorate the tile accurately. The more ink deposited, the more obvious this fault would be. Projecta Siti B&T proposes using one main decorating machine with 5 or 7 bars for the chromatic inks and a second decorating machine, usually an Evothree, featuring 3 bars, for the textural effects. This second printer will be synchronised with the first and positioned a few metres away, to allow the piece to dry properly between one application and the next. It may seem financially unfeasible to fit a line with two separate decorating machines. Instead, one of the features that makes this solution particularly interesting is in fact its economic convenience. The most expensive part of a digital decorating machine is always the colour bar, which contains the print heads and the electronics; the fact that the bar is moved from one decorating machine to another, on a different line, enables the costs of each bar to be split and makes the configuration of the lines much more versatile. Let’s consider an example: after the wood design, we might need to produce a tile on which the application of a devitrifier is not required, but instead a reactive sinking or white ink. In a digital decorating machine in which the bars are fixed, in order to replace the devitrifying ink with a reactive ink, the colour must be removed, the circuits and print heads cleaned very carefully and the filters changed. If the reactive ink is from a different supplier from that of the devitrifier, almost all of the circuits must be cleaned with the new cleaner, before proceeding to load the new ink. It is clear that this operations waste time, reduce productivity and also have a cost, in terms of the amount spent on cleaning the machine and changing the filters. Furthermore, if the first and second inks used at each change of ink are not chemically compatible, there is a risk that the print heads may block. The range of technological products by Projecta Siti B&T can help solve this problem, with Evostore, a mobile storage unit on which we can deposit the ink bar loaded with the devitrifier, making it available for another line, or leaving it to rest until it is needed again. From Evostore, we then lift out the bar of reactive ink to be positioned in place of the devitrifier on the same line. This operation only takes a few minutes, unlike the hours required for a traditional ink change and, as it does not involve cleaning the machine, there is no need for any kind of filter, or to replace the filters. In this way we can also change the colour configuration of a printer, adding, removing or replacing colour bars, so creating endless expressive and decorative possibilities for the digital line. Depending on the design, we may decide to cre- Evostore ate a granulated finish on ce-

ramics, using Evodry Fix, a digital decorating machine capable of shooting glue on to the points indicated in the design. The granules fall on to the tile, remain stuck on the parts where the glue is present and an aspirator removes any excess material. This example is not only a ceramic technique that provides excellent aesthetic results, but it can also be used to differentiate and protect the products of one ceramic industry from those of its competitors. A tile created solely with a digital decoration on a smooth base is easy to copy. With the techniques available today, the design can easily be acquired by scanning or photographing the finished pieces. Even if the finished result displays an inferior quality and resolution to the original, there are many up-and-coming markets that can benefit from copying successful models rather than producing original ones of their own. It’s a different story when it comes to copying a complex design. This is extremely difficult, as it involves not only recreating the design, but also the structures, effects and texture of the original. The semi-finished product, ready to enter the kiln, is checked by Evovision, a digital machine capable of recognising defects in the shape, glazing and decoration of the piece, consequently eliminating it from the line before firing, delivering a check report and recommending the appropriate corrective actions. Finally the tile is fired in the kiln and takes on its definitive appearance and technological characteristics. The in-line technology used can also be supported by a workshop technique, such as for example a colour management program, which ensures that the design presents the same shades of colour as the finished product, that is that the colours viewed on the monitor are the same as those that appear on the tile when it exits the kiln. This result can only be obtained by correctly calibrating the monitors and digital printers. Today this technique also takes on a strategic relevance considering that many ceramics groups carry out their production in various remote locations, producing ceramic tiles in facilities that may be very distant from one another. This means that the product, as it is viewed on the monitor, must exit the kiln in their facility in Italy and be almost identical to tiles exiting the kiln in their facility in the USA. Colour management programs are the only instruments that allow us to achieve this result. Moreover, colour management also enables us to optimise and indeed reduce the consumption of ink to a minimum, so reducing the fixed production costs. Siti B&T Group is a partner that is capable of developing new technological and decorative solutions, and of providing support in terms of designs and graphics. It also offers customer services and access to its knowhow, these being two essential elements for gaining a competitive edge. 

Marcello Fontanini - LB Officine Meccaniche (Fiorano, Italy)

New aesthetic potential in ceramics

çkS|ksfxdh

At the Fiorano Modenese open-house held in September, LB Officine Meccaniche organized an exhibition retracing its 40 years of technological success and its high technical and aesthetic value products: A genuine showcase created to launch Divario, the innovative system that embodies all of LB’s experience in the construction of plant and machinery for press feeding. This new feeder design combines higher aesthetic-production potential with a significant reduction in management and maintenance costs. The innovative powder batching system can be used to achieve higher definition aesthetics and a greater production capacity thanks to the possibility of loading the press mould from two simultaneously operating belts. This unique method of handing powders can give rise to a wide range of aesthetic effects and products (with smooth, lapped, textured or polished surface). Flexibility and simplicity are the two key concepts on which LB technological research was based, following the most advanced design criteria and paying greater attention to reducing space and unproductive time while increasing energy efficiency. Divario is available in various models that can be applied to any type of press, and has been designed to be personalized to suit the customer’s specific needs. Its use is especially suited to large formats: LB’s intention, in fact, is to comply with the current trends of the main producers and simplify the changeover to a single large format, to

Divario is designed to operate, regardless of the desired size, in different ways: • double-loading for the production of technical products of high aesthetic value, with effects created without the use of rigid parts (grids) and consequently different every time; • single-loading for the production of full body tiles (in a very short time the machine becomes a simple linear highly efficient drawer and can continue to feed the press during size change operations or modification of the aesthetic effect of the double-loading); • fast double-loading for uniform and full-field deposits of

very small quantities of high quality materials. Through the simple replacement of a dosing device, Divario can lay the aesthetic effect both on the surface and under the body, allowing to realize even products “fine side down”. The interface which allows to manage the machine and modify its set-up according to the production, has been designed with a “user friendly” perspective. All the main components are within reach of the operator, enabling simple and intuitive management. Energy saving Divario has been designed to handle only the parts strictly necessary for the different operating modes of the machine and for the particular products in order to minimize the use of electrical energy and the wear on moving parts. It is the first numerically controlled machine in the ceramics sector, with a reduced control panel, and is the result of extensive research into refined and latest generation electronics. The significant energy saving attributes are, in fact, also the result of the innovate drive systems. Innovation Despite its compact size, Divario allows a number of possibilities of customization according to the specific aesthetic and production needs: it can house different kits on the same platform to obtain different aesthetic effects without stopping production. The loading device for the base body has been positioned next to the press mould in order to reserve more space in the rear, dedicated to the creation of the aesthetic effect. This enables to continue to feed the press while the design is being created, with obvious advantages in terms of productivity, efficiency and aesthetic quality. More than just a machine: a project In the design of Divario, LB started from the requests of its customers and went much further in an attempt to anticipate the future needs of the market. Divario is not just a machine, it is a ‘work in progress’ that aims to provide new ideas for new products that client companies can produce at their facilities, thanks to the innovative technology and the numerous possible aesthetic effects. In the field of full-body porcelain tiles, the company has, in fact, clearly understood the need of leading producers in the various countries to return to manufacturing products of high aesthetic value, different to those of competitors, and not easily copied. For this reason, since the official launching of Divario in September, LB has exhibited and highlighted some of the products that the new system can produce. Some products in particular have been much appreciated: trend-setting cements, realized through particular movements and non-uniform effects, aesthetically appealing and far better than previous technological solutions; flake effect; wood effect; marble effect, all produced at faster speeds and with an unlimited range of characteristics that were previously unthinkable; and all with parameters that can be personalized to satisfy the different needs of the ceramic tile manufacturers. The potentials and aesthetic evolutions of Divario are even more numerous, thanks also to the constant product Research & Development activities of the LB labora tory.

Bongioanni technology in Iraqi Kurdistan

çkS|ksfxdh

Iraqi Kurdistan, also known as the Autonomous Kurdistan Region, is an autonomous federal entity of Northern Iraq. The region is largely mountainous with numerous rivers that make it very fertile and attractive for settlement. The region has attracted billions of dollars of investments in development projects in recent years, particularly in the building sector in response to the strong market demand. Anyone who submits a feasible project to the government, provided it is approved and is in line with the new law on investments, receives free land for construction. However, to date only a very small number of projects have been completed. In view of these benefits, the regional Iraqi private multi-sector group Halabja Group, based in Sulaymaniyah, Governorate of Sulaymaniyah, has finalised a project in cooperation with Bongioanni Macchine for the construction of a complete plant with a capacity of 1,000 tons of bricks per day with the aim of meeting the high demand in the area. The new plant is already in its start-up phase. The Group, led by chairman Aso Mohammed Ali, has branches in Kurdistan and elsewhere in Iraq, including Erbil, Baghdad, Duhok and Zakho, as well as in the United Arab Emirates, Turkey and China. The new plant has been installed alongside the existing facility. The production process related to clay preparation up to the silo storage operates over two shifts/day, while the subsequent production line, using clay from the silo, runs over Wet Pan Mills three daily shifts.

erate 6 days a week. The preparation line will use a new 38M version edge runner for optimal crushing and mixing of the raw material to be fed into the plant. The production line and all the machinery needed to prepare the clay mix use the Bongioanni type Tecno 750 extruder for shaping, including application of the patented system for extrusion quality control based on automatic adjustment of the auger speed of rotation. This patented system ensures constant delivery of the required quantity of clay to the extruder die, making for a more homogeneous mix density, a more uniform thrust surface and improved quality of the extruded product. It also results in higher productivity of the extruder and a lower electricity consumption while keeping the auger running at the optimum speed. Given the importance of the Halabja Group in the region, the new project will spur other entrepreneurs to make new investments in the reconstruction of both the Kurdistan region and the whole of Iraq, where brick is traditionally the most popular building material. 

SACMI Market demand for large tiles is on the up and up: and that means production of high-end products of considerable unit cost in which the technological perfection of complete plants and individual machines plays a key role when it comes to meeting demanding quality and output requirements. Sacmi’s response to that demand is the PH 10000. With a pressing force of 10,000 tons it can compact even the very largest sizes at very high specific pressures. A part of the innovative Imola series, the PH 10000 completes the upper end of Sacmi’s ceramic press range and maintains all the advantages of a series that has been extensively tried and tested in the field, especially as regards the preloaded structure, which ensures outstanding, long-lasting rigidity and reliability - as hundreds of similar Sacmi machines installed over the last 20 years clearly demonstrate. The hydraulic control circuit is similar to that on the other presses: plunger movement and pressing stages are regulated by two proportional valves, which ensure maximum pressing precision and repeatability over time without any variation in output. A feature particular to the PH 10000, instead, is its structural modularity: the main components can be shipped separately and the machine subsequently reassembled on site, thus minimising transport costs. Thanks to a flow multiplier coupled with an accumulator set the PH 10000 has an extremely brief cycle; it is also extremely reliable on account of the pressure multiplier, which contains the zones subject to very high pressure and so increases the reliability of the circuit itself. Controlled - like

42

the other machines in the series – by a powerful electronic ‘brain’ that communicates with the press via a fieldbus, the press is easy to operate from both a control response time viewpoint and in terms of optimal control of all the operative parameters, shown on a userfriendly display that has been designed according to the most advanced ergonomic criteria. The most immediate advantage of this control system is minimisation of cycle downtimes, thus raising press speed and productivity. Consumption? In keeping with Sacmi’s policy of saving energy without compromising on output performance - but rather improving it - consumption levels are reduced to a minimum. More specifically, on the PH 10000 Sacmi’s design engineers have implemented a special cycle with high energy savings and have, at the same time, provided the machine with features that eliminate press consumption during line stops.

SACMI WHITEWARE In the field of high pressure casting solutions, Sacmi presents the new AVB casting bench, which allows producers to make articles using 2, 3, 4 or 5-part moulds. With the same structure as the ALS, designed to cast washbasins, sinks, pedestals, squat-type WCs, tanks and lids, it is now possible to make open-rim WCs. The WCs may be of the wall-hung or floor-mounted type. In the event of a change to the product mix, the ALS can be converted into an AVB, and vice versa.

44

The new battery-arranged machine allows very high output rates to be achieved. The number of moulds may vary depending on exact system configuration and required productivity, up to a maximum of 10 WC bowls for floor-mounted types and 8 for wall-hung ones. Even the length of the machine can be chosen according to the number of moulds the producer intends to install (4 versions available). Different levels of automation

can also be applied: de-moulding may be automatic following installation of a robot, or can be manual, servo-assisted by a zeroweight lifter. Outstanding machine flexibility also makes it possible to produce different models with different casting cycles simultaneously. The AVB features all the trademark functions of Sacmi machines: proportional hydraulics to maximise the working life of the moulds, maximum casting pressure of 15 bar, the possibility of applying vacuum to the moulds and being able to change them without having to dismantle the container frames. The AVB responds perfectly to the need to produce econom-

ical WCs; an alternative to traditional casting, it reduces both space and labour requirements while improving the quality of the finished product thanks to the use of porous resin moulds. Sacmi is able to provide the complete modelling, mould machine and piece maturing package, tailor-made to suit the customer’s specific requirements.

The Robot uses a multiple programming: self-learning, point-to-point and off-line. The offline 7WD (7 work digital axes) is the most innovative one, an applying solution which allows to automatically simulate the trajectories and generate the glazing programs by the piece digitalization and its following modelling. The 6 axes of the Robot and the 7th of the turntable, are coordinated in order to optimize the movements of the Robot in trajectories, the most possible linear and fluid. This allows a particular reduction in cycle time and overspray while being easily seated in front of our own desktop without stopping production. GA-OL robot: It is the new robot by Gaiotto specially designed for offline programming. More straightforward compared to GA2000 robot as it does not feature a selflearning function but built according to the same kinematics as the older model, by making the full use of any software generated by self-learning robot. The Brushless motor controlled, non reversible precision reduction gear system guarantees excellent accuracy and repeatability of all axis movements. Hermetically sealed gearmotors, protective casings on all the motors and minimised number of connections all guaranteeing a suitable protection degree. Maintenance can be carried out

46

in a user-friendly manner thanks to easy access to all moving parts. GA-OL robot may also be topmounted without any mechanical or changes being required. The two robots models above mentioned have been designed to be interfaced with external devices such as: • “Visus Pro”: visus system studied to recognize the different types of pieces and adjust the programs trajectories according to their real position. The system uses the principle of the programs translation on the Cartesian plane. • “Mass Control”: automatic system for the glaze deliveries management. The system allows the regulation of the sprayed product by carrying out measurements and regulations 25 times at second. Gaiotto, during the last Tecnargilla exhibition, presented a new model with electronics integrated inside the Robot control board; this will allow an high simplification of the devices by collecting all the function in an unique operator interface. This system is important to allow the saving and optimization of the sprayed product. GA/F-OL robot: It is the Gaiotto’s recommendation for all those who wish to introduce an otimised automatic solution in the form of Fanuc robot. Full compatibility with the Gaiotto off-line programming software package and full integration with the glaze flow rate control system (Mass Control). The wrist joint load and the working range specifications are comparable to Gaiotto robots. This robot can be top-mounted or wallmounted without any mechanical or electronic changes being required.

SETEC

Upward is a new machine designed by Setec for the automatic internal glazing of WCs, or more specifically, siphons and rims. This system allows users to solve the practical issues that are often encountered during the internal glazing of a component. Some parts of the siphon and the rim are not easily accessible due to their specific shape, and so the only way to achieve a uniform glaze application is to fill the component entirely. Upward allows for this filling to be performed automatically from above, using a suspended tank, which allows uniform spreading of the enamel and prevents the accumulation of dirt and dust on surfaces - a problem which is difficult to overcome when filling from below. A specially-designed emptying system serves to eliminate excess product and seal the remaining glaze onto the inner walls of the WC-bowl. An automatic two-way tipping system ensures complete emptying of the bowl and perfect distribution of the enamel on the inner surfaces. Each stage of the glazing process is controlled by a modern touch-screen PLC (Programmable Logic Controller) that allows users to set the type of bowl to be

glazed (P-shaped or S-shaped siphon), and produces information on timings, delay, angles and a range of other parameters. The machine can be used to glaze standard-type bowls as well as one-piece WCs, and is equipped with all possible options, including stainless steel external tank, vibrating sieve, magnet filter, glaze suspension mixer, pneumatic pumps, suspended tank, drip sponge and level sensors. These accessories ensure that the glaze is kept clean and at the proper density, as well as preventing drips and other slight imperfections. The machine is made entirely of stainless steel in order to withstand the corrosive action of the ceramic glazes, and the software is quick to install and easy to use.

the required products in liquid or spray form, according to the specific production requirements. Within the field of bleaches and glaze compounds, Remix has built its company philosophy upon a commitment to constant technical product research, a trait which has led to the company becoming one of the world leaders in its sector. Bleach - one of the most important products in the range, and produced using synthetic elements - was developed to replace zirconium silicate and is available for use with porcelain tiles, glazes and digital inks. Remix bleach is cheaper and more stably priced than zirconium silicate; its use also avoids the problems associated with radioac-

tivity regulations in force in some countries. For best results in terms of efficacy, the bleach should be used in the same ratio as zirconium silicate, replacing it completely without altering the end result. To ensure maximum versatility, Remix has produced three categories of bleach: for ceramic bodies (completely non-radioactive), for engobes and for ceramic glaze. The latest innovation developed as a result of Remix’s research is a bleach for use in the production of sanitaryware.

POPPI CLEMENTINO Poppi Clementino operates in the field of energy saving and protection of the environment and has gained experience all over the world. In particular, it offers an energy check-up service capable of analysing a company’s current situation and offering solutions tailored to its specific needs. Optimising energy usage and reintroducing waste energy into the production system can considerably reduce consumption without altering the production cycle. The most energy-intensive machines in the ceramic industry are spray dryers and dryers. The first source of recovered energy originates from the kiln cooling air, which unlike kiln flue gases can be introduced directly into the energy-intensive machines without the need to be treated. Flue gases on the other hand have to pass through a system to reduce pollutants which might damage the machines. A distinction can be drawn between two kinds of systems depending on whether the waste energy is recovered directly or indirectly, although in reality the two systems can be integrated. In the figure below, we can see that the energy recovered from 5 kilns is used to feed 2 spray dryers and 8 dryers, of which 5 are vertical and 3 are horizontal. Poppi Clementino technology is able to create a kind of “energy bank” that can channel the available hot air volumes giving precedence either to the spray dryers or to the dryers according to production requirements. In this specific case, the hot air originating from the kiln cooling system is channelled to the user devices by means of a duct. This is connected to another pipe coming from a heat exchanger which

50

generates hot air using the heat contained in the kiln flue gases. After the two branches have merged, the duct has a larger diameter so as to be able to transport the larger available air volumes, which are then channelled towards the individual user devices. Various pressure switches and thermocouples are installed along the route and serve to measure the available flowrates in real time to determine the potential reduction in use of the burners installed on the spray dryers and dryers. Looking in greater detail, the installed heat exchanger is a selfcleaning plate type to avoid the various problems that may occur when using classic shell and tube type exchangers. This machine is able to generate an airflow of around 25,000 Nm3/h at 180°C, which added to the 50,000 Nm3/h at 165°C from kiln cooling results in an “energy bank” of 75,000 Nm3/h at 170°C. The available flow can be completely used by the energy-intensive machines without in any way altering their operation, resulting for example in a 20% reduction in the energy consumption of the spray dryers and a 25-30% reduction in that of the dryers. To convert the effective flowrate in m3/h of hot air into m3/h of CH4, it is necessary to

determine the quantity of kcal/h available and divide this figure by a coefficient of 8,250, which is the heating value of natural gas. In this specific case we obtain an hourly saving of 395 Stm3/h of CH4. Considering an average cost of 0.30 euro/Stm3 of CH4, this plant guarantees an hourly saving of 118.50 euro, which multiplied by a production time of 7,000 hours/year corresponds to a total saving of 829,500.00 euro. From this we need to subtract the plant management costs, which in this case are limited to the higher electrical consumption of the inverterized installed fans. Along with the benefit of around 829,500.00 euro/year obtained from direct fuel savings, another major contribution comes from white certificates issued accord-

ing to the number of TOE (tons of oil equivalent) saved. At present these incentives are only available in Italy through companies called ESCO and have a duration of 5 years. An installation of this kind may save 2,600 TOE/ year, convertible to 234,000.00 euro/year obtained through this contribution. All plants are supplied with legally valid instruments to measure the values subsequently used by the ESCO. The guaranteed performance of the system is determined on the basis of the data measured by these instruments. The savings allow for a very rapid return on the investment (10-16 months), which is achieved without affecting production setup due to the fully automatic operation of the energy recovery system.

EBI-CERAMICURE To reduce the refire rate in the sanitaryware industry, Ebi-Ceramicure has developed CeramiCure® Light Cure Acrylic (LCA™), the original, complete sanitary ceramic and porcelain repair solution for making virtually invisible repairs of minor glaze defects (pits, iron spots, small chips and pinholes). Made of a high-tech nano-acrylic developed originally for a variety of medical applications, repairs using the LCA™ material withstand moisture, cleansers and heat up to 285°F and will not yellow, fade or fall out over time. CeramiCure® LCA™ is available in more than 200 colors (with custom matching available prior to ordering, so mixing of colors is not required). Non-toxic, fast-curing and easy to use, the CeramiCure® LCA™ repair solution is efficient quality one can see. Utilizing the CeramiCure® LCA™ repair process will allow to reduce re-fire rates, minimize repair costs and time, increase productivity and kiln capacity and reduce gas, oil and electricity consumption, while simultaneously decreasing CO2 output. CeramiCure® LCA™ will allow sanitaryware producing company to enjoy additional Six Sigma and Lean Manufacturing benefits while being “green.” Another item in the CeramiCure® range, is CeramiCure® Self Cure Acrylic (SCA™), the original complete sani-

tary ceramic and porcelain repair solution for the restoration of previously unusable cracked or scrapped pieces. Based on the technology of the CeramiCure® LCA™ material, CeramiCure® SCA™ allows for the repairs of larger cracks in sanitary ware pieces, even those cracks located below the waterline. The CeramiCure® SCA™ solution utilizes a number of innovative non-toxic acrylic and composite materials to make structurally sound, leakproof repairs that were previously impossible to make. Scrapped pieces can now be transformed into saleable, profitable pieces with quick, easy and cost-effective repairs utilizing the CeramiCure® SCA™ material. Just as with the CeramiCure® LCA™ repair material, utilizing the CeramiCure® SCA™ material to turn scrap pieces into saleable inventory allows for higher profit margins through increased productivity and kiln capacity, resulting in decreased energy usage and costs, and reduced overall CO2 output.

SMALTOCHIMICA Glycol ethers are the main category of low polarity organic solvents used for the production of digital ceramic inks. For this type of application the most suitable glycol ether product proves to be TPNB (tri-propylene glycol nbutyl-ether). However this product is often hard to find on the market as its production is not sufficient to cover the needs of the digital ceramic market. Numerous tests have been carried out to find products that could replace TPNB for ceramic inks but almost all of them proved unsuitable for a variety of reasons (excess “drying”, partial incompatibility with the dispersing agents used with TPNB, viscosity and surface tension not suitable for digital application). Smaltochimica has fine-tuned an alternative solvent to TPNB for the production of inks, namely SM 1972, that can be used as a partial or total replacement of TPNB in ink formulas. Its chemical nature, which is similar to that of TPNB, makes it perfectly compatible with dispersing agents used to produce glycol ether inks. Moreover, SM 1972 features evaporation temperature and surface tension values that can improve the “excess drying” of inks. Should it be deemed necessary to completely replace

TPNB with another solvent, Smaltochimica has developed a range of similar products to SM 1972, all with an identical viscosity value to that of TPNB, namely: 1 SM 2001, 1 SM 2003, 1 SM 2004. The evolution of the research in the field of digital inks has led many manufacturers to use chemicals that belong to ester family of compounds for the formulation of next generation inks. To this end, Smaltochimica, in partnership with a company that manufactures esters, has selected a broad range of products of vegetal origin whose fat acid component derives from renewable sources, that have a high solvent power and that release low levels of CO2 in the atmosphere. The products have the following characteristics: they can be used for the production of digital ceramic inks, as shown by tests carried out in our laboratory; suitable chemical-physical parameters for digital printing application; low level of polluting emissions; they do not attack plastics; high boiling temperature; suitable evaporation temperature and surface tension to avoid the “excess drying” of inks; reduced price if compared to glycol ethers and esters available on the market.
