Raw materials processing and fabrication

We define and deliver all the machinery required for preparation of raw materials and fabrication of products.

The first step of the ceramic process includes clays preparation. Raw materials extracted from the quarry are dosed, crushed then mixed in order to make up a clay body allowing the products shaping.

We have developed a large range of kilns (tunnel or shuttle kilns) and of cars made up of prefired refractory pieces with firing temperature from 900 to 1300 °C.
We propose performing firing equipment with systems for reducing consumptions of all types of energy: gas, fuel oil, biomass,…

Our range of kilns and cars:

  • Tradifast: Made up of fired clay bricks and with suspended roof
  • Ecofast: Modular construction and short erection time
  • Technofast: 100 % prefired refractory pieces
  • Cars: Designed for bricks and roof tiles

Automatic handling

Our automatic circuits are designed according to the products to be handled at each stage of the manufacturing process.

Model handling circuits:

  • Cutters: Standard cutting line and multiwires cutters
  • Loaders: All kinds of dryers and products
  • Stacking / Dehacking machines: Traditional or with robots
  • Packaging: Customized packaging lines

Supervision and process monitoring

In order to control the good running of regulation processes, we propose graphical interfaces, such as animated graphics, indicators, instantaneous and contextualized firing/ drying curves.

We are continuously adapting to our clients’ industrial process to provide customized solutions for each production site.
