Cattin Porcellane D'Arte chooses SACMI-SAMA PHO451 press

The machine will be dedicated to the production of top-of-the-range plates, with elegant relief decoration. A tailor-made solution for the customer showing how an industrial system can be applied to top quality craftsmanship; symbol of Italian artistic porcelains throughout the world. 

With a forty-year history of world-renowned excellence as producers of the highest quality tableware and accessories, the Treviso-based company Cattin Porcellane D'Arte has invested in SACMI-SAMA isostatic pressure technology. Following the first SAMA pressure casting machine started up in 2020, Cattin has now chosen the PHO 451 “GREEN” isostatic press, renowned throughout the market for its exceptional quality and production versatility. 
The distinguishing feature of this project, designed specifically by SACMI-SAMA to meet the production requirements of the customer, is the possibility to apply an industrial solution - the isostatic pressing technology - to support the production of top quality artisan ceramics. 
The aim is to develop a collection of plates with a modern and functional design: thin thicknesses, with large rim, open inclination and slim foot. Once formed in the PHO press, the items come out on a specially adapted conveyor so they can be transferred ergonomically to the operator who carries out the manual finishing and fettling operations using the centering device.
But that’s not all. Cattin’s goal is to give added value to the collection by applying a relief decoration to every single plate. To do this, the decoration is replicated using the araldite mould supplied by SAMA and is applied manually. In this way it is possible to obtain, not just the required three-dimensional effect, but also perfect and repeatable quality. This was a main objective also of SAMA’s work to perfect the CAD/CAM tooling of the moulds to create chiselled surfaces.  
The press is being supplied in its "GREEN" configuration with consumption reduced by up to 30% compared to conventional technology. The installation and testing stages were accompanied by a training program aimed at the customer’s team to immediately start reaping the rewards of this solution, which was conceived for the international tableware industry, but is also perfectly suited to the production strategies of this lead player in the Made in Italy artistic ceramics segment.
