What are the main market trends in terms of technology and which of these are you devoting most attention to?

In line with the principal market trends of digitalisation and sustainability, SACMI is extending its focus to include Industry 5.0. An example of this is the technologies required for the use of artificial intelligence, such as the new vision systems we are developing under the Italvision brand. These systems act as plant checkpoints that provide real-time data and analysis for each individual process, thereby ensuring maximum product quality and minimal waste. After presenting the world’s first tile fired in a 100% hydrogen-powered kiln in 2023, we will be introducing a number of other sustainability-related technologies this year. Another strategic area is the end-of-line stage, where we will be showcasing further new advanced finishing solutions from BMR, as well as the new SacmiCassioli Intralogistics proposal for automating plant intralogistics, covering everything from handling to software management.
