New kilns in operation for tableware producer

By the end of last year Riedhammer successfully commissioned one fast firing tunnel kiln and one fast firing roller kiln, both for once firing of porcelain and fine china for a well-known tableware producer.

Both kilns are equipped with state-of-the-art firing technology, using Riedhammer’s advanced technology to reduce the gas consumption, atmosphere regulation to achieve a stable reduction as well as an upstream glaze dryer heated with waste air from the kiln. Consumption values of 2000 kcal/kg ware net were achieved.  

These two kilns allow a considerable expansion of the customer’s production capacity. 


New order for fast firing tunnel kiln for tableware producer

Riedhammer received an order for a new fast firing kiln for glost firing of porcelain for a producer with long tradition.

This kiln will be the third Riedhammer fast firing tunnel kiln delivered for this customer and will be used for a further extension of the customer’s tableware production, including all the latest Riedhammer advanced technology to reduce the gas consumption as well as atmosphere regulation for a stable reduction.

The new kiln will be delivered at the end of June and start operation by the end of this year.


25th anniversary of Riedhammer Japan

This year our branch office Riedhammer Japan Co. Ltd. celebrates its 25th anniversary. Riedhammer Japan was founded in 1992 in the course of new strategic decisions to support the sales of industrial kiln plants, but also the after-sales-service on the Asian/Japanese market. Nowadays Riedhammer Japan does not only successfully sell Riedhammer industrial kilns but also SACMI production plants for ceramic sanitaryware and CNC metal powder presses for automobile parts. Particularly in the field of CO2 reduction and energy saving Riedhammer Japan offers technologies to the Japanese industry which are based on innovative ideas of Riedhammer GmbH.

We congratulate the president of Riedhammer Japan, Mr. Hiroshi Abe, and his employees, on the 25th company anniversary and are looking forward to many more years of good and successful cooperation.



Advanced ceramics, Laeis and Riedhammer together at Ceramics Expo 2017 Cleveland (25 to 27 April 2017) BOOTH 619

Both Sacmi Group companies took part in the international symposium in Cleveland, the world’s leading city for the application of technical ceramics in the automotive, aerospace, biomedical, environmental and precision electronics fields

Laeis, the leading designer of hydraulic presses for refractory products and advanced ceramics, and Riedhammer, a global player in the production of industrial shuttle, tunnel and rotary kilns for ceramic sanitaryware and special ceramics, recently exhibited (for the third time) at Ceramics Expo. in Cleveland (25 to 27 April 2017), this is one of the world’s most important plant engineering and ceramic manufacturing fairs, especially as regards the advanced ceramics used in several industries such as automotive, aerospace and biomedical, and technologies for the environment and precision electronics.


In front of the industry’s biggest decision makers – business owners, technicians and production managers – these two Sacmi Group companies presented the latest solutions in their respective ranges. More specifically, Laeis has presented in Cleveland its range of hydraulic presses for technical ceramics and refractory items, designed to efficiently manage even the “trickiest” products in the industry, including those of complex, irregular shape.


The leading provider of ultra-high temperature firing solutions, Riedhammer showcased its latest technological developments: the key protagonist is “Low-02-Technology” for de-binding, a cutting-edge solution that visitors could get a close look at thanks to the company’s technical staff, who provided details and technical info. Another key product presented in Cleveland was the gas-tight roller kiln which allow firing to be carried out in different atmospheres (nitrogen, hydrogen, argon or mixed-gas).


New order for periodical high-temperature tempering kiln

Riedhammer received an order from a renowned European refractory manufacturer for a periodical high-temperature tempering kiln for the manufacture of tar bonded ceramic refractory products. This kiln, in contrast to the otherwise standard tempering kilns, is designed for low-oxygen operation according to EN1539 type B.
Due to the substantially lower exhaust gas volume, a periodic kiln can be operated with a very favorable energy consumption, which is even lower than the energy consumption of a continuous kiln.
