The world-leading surface coverings group has chosen the efficiency and quality of SITI B&T technology for its Daltile plant in Mexico
Mohawk Industries, the industrial giant that also controls Marazzi, has chosen SITI B&T Group technologies for the new Mexican facility of Daltile, a leading company in the US market owned by the Group since 2002.
The decision confirms SITI B&T Group’s focus on research, development and innovation as a major driver of business growth. Mohawk Industries, one of the leading players in the ceramic industry, produced around 225 million sq.m of tiles in 2015 and generated a turnover of more than US $3 billion in the ceramic segment alone, equivalent to 37% of total revenues. The Group has an extensive product range (including other surface covering materials such as carpet) and has decided to expand its operations in the ceramic tile sector, a material that is steadily gaining market share with respect to alternative products.
此名目的落地证明了西蒂贝恩特团体用心于研发和立异的计谋已成为停业增加的首要驱动力。 莫霍克团体作为陶瓷行业的带领企业之一，在2015年产量约2.25亿平方米瓷砖，仅陶瓷板块的停业支出就跨越30亿美圆，相称于团体总停业支出的37％。 团体具有普遍的产物系列（包罗其余修建装潢资料，如地毯等），并已决议扩展其在瓷砖范畴的产能，这一范畴正以不变的市场增加份额替换其余修建装潢产物。
Daltile’s goal is to strengthen the Group’s competitive position in the Mexican market. The new facility will have an ultra-modern raw materials preparation department equipped with continuous modular mills with inverter-controlled differentiated speed management for higher productivity and one of the largest SD spray dryers in Mexico, a solution that will bring significant energy savings.
As part of its ongoing efforts to reduce emissions and consumptions, Daltile has chosen advanced Titanium® technologies for the firing stage. These consist of three kilns equipped with MHR 230°C hot air recovery systems to optimise energy efficiency.
作为Daltile工场延续节能减排名目的一局部，在烧成设备方面选用了西蒂贝恩特进步前辈的泰坦®手艺， 这包罗三条设备MHR 230°C余热操纵体系的窑炉，从而优化动力效力。
The latest-generation Titanium® kilns unveiled at the recent exhibition Tecnargilla deliver unique levels of energy efficiency, cutting fuel consumption by 30% and atmospheric emissions by 25%.
The plant also features a Dry Squaring Speed line and the Deep motor Cut score-and-snap machine from Ancora, the company specializing in ceramic product finishing which joined SITI B&T Group in 2015 and reported 20% growth in business this year.Daltile工场还设置设备摆设有来自安科拉公司的干法高速磨边线和切割线。安科拉是特地制作陶瓷产物深加工设备的公司，于2015年并入西蒂贝恩特团体，财报显现其本年停业增加了20％。
