The fu­ture of cera­mics is al­ready here

Take part in the Fo­rum to dis­cover all the la­test tile and slab manufac­turing tech­nology

SACMI invites you to take part in the first virtual forum on innovation in the tile world. A two-day, open-access event with leading industry experts to discuss how Digitalization and Sustainability have become the two key concepts in the ceramic factory of the future. The environmental impact of industrial manufacturing is a pressing issue all over the globe. In the ceramic industry too, tough challenges lie ahead: getting emissions down and raising energy efficiency, not just to comply with standards but also gain new market shares. The focus will be on both the Digitalization and Green Economy, illustrating how the latter can lend firms vital support when it comes to using new technology to re-think process flows. All this and more will be discussed with renowned guests and key experts.

Over the two days they’ll give talks and respond to questions. It’ll also be possible to chat with specialists from our Smart Powder Plant, Forming, Decoration, Dryers & Kiln and End of Line business units.

The languages available are English, Italian, Spanish, Chinese, Brazilian Portuguese, Russian, French.

The Green Ceramic Factory. Together with special guests, our experts will highlight the importance of green technology in reducing emissions/consumption and illustrate the use of new renewable energy sources and eco-sustainable products. There will also be an overview of future trends and scenarios and a presentation of SACMI’s latest environment-energy solution. “Sustainable tile” and “low environmental impact plant” are just two of the key concepts underlying some of case studies that will be presented during the day.
