Top technologies for the treatment and finishing of large slabs

On the industrial automation scene since 1989, SIMEC celebrates 30 years of international leadership in the supply of technologies for the ceramic sector. The experience gained and the natural vocation for innovation have made the company a reference for the design and construction of customized systems aimed at ensuring process optimization and an immediate return in terms of production performance. Technological partner of important companies in the ceramic industry, SIMEC has always collaborated with its customers to offer solutions that respond adherently to the needs of product processing.

Among the innovations born from this constant search for concrete solutions to ceramic lines problems, the brushing machines stand out, equipped with a unique treatment system in the large slabs sector. Flexibility, maintenance reduced to the minimum terms, remote assistance and interconnection to management systems, are the aspects that make them one of the company’s leading products. Among the first to appear on the market of technologies for stain-resistant treatments and in continuous technological development to keep up with the evolution of the material and ceramic format, the brushing machines have long been used in the factories of the district Italian ceramic and by large industry groups worldwide.
Equipped with one or more brushing heads adjustable in height and position, they are designed to treat formats up to 2000 mm wide and of any thickness. Inserted in series or interspersed with other machinery at the end of the line, after sanding or lapping processes they have the function of applying the treatment product, or, in combination with automatic selection systems or the SIMEC’s manual choice desk, they are the most effective cleaning solution before quality control. The mechanics guarantee constant brushing pressure until complete wear of the brushes, fast tool change, resistance to high working pressures, optimal penetration of the product into the porosity of the ceramic and homogeneous polishing without defects; an intuitive control panel allows easy setting of the brushing parameters.
SIMEC also boasts long experience in the design of transport for large slabs, chosen by the most important brands in the sector. With the advent of maxi formats (up to 1800 x 3600 mm) and thicknesses (up to 30 mm), the company was in fact the first to offer systems and accessories to aid their handling in the product finishing lines ceramic. Upstream and downstream of the brushing machines, roller or belt conveyors and special machinery for rotation, overturning, squaring and centering are tailor-made to best accompany the large and very large formats through lapping, grinding and cutting. Machines dedicated to the loading and unloading of the finished slabs open and close the line, for their insertion in boxes or on vertical perches.
SIMEC also does not fail to invest in research and development of robotic technologies, focusing, where necessary, on the highly performing anthropomorphic arms equipped with mechanical tools for the handling, sorting, packaging and palletizing of the slabs.
