New pressing and compaction process
PROJECT: IDI-20170399 – NEW PRESSING AND COMPACTION PROCESS
The objective of the ‘New pressing and compaction process’ project is to hone a new manufacturing process to produce tiles that are slimmer than those obtained using traditional methods.
The project consists of researching and developing the production of large format porous wall tiles with thicknesses of less than 7 mm suitable for manufacture using hydraulic pressing processes.
PROJECT OBJECTIVES: TO DESIGN, DEVELOP AND OPTIMISE NEW SLIMLINE POROUS CERAMIC TILES WITH A HIGH DEGREE OF MECHANICAL RESISTANCE.
PROJECT SITE: THE PRODUCT HAS BEEN CARRIED OUT AT THE PERONDA FACILITIES IN (CASTELLÓN)
PROJECT PERIOD: START DATE: 13/02/2017 – COMPLETION DATE: 01/04/2018
PROJECT BUDGET: 327,297 EUROS
CO-FUNDED BY THE CENTRE FOR THE DEVELOPMENT OF INDUSTRIAL TECHNOLOGY (CDTI in its Spanish initials) AND THE EUROPEAN REGIONAL DEVELOPMENT FUND (ERDF)
