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.
此项目的落地证实了西蒂贝恩特集团专心于研发和创新的战略已经成为业务增长的主要驱动力。 莫霍克集团作为陶瓷行业的领导企业之一，在2015年产量约2.25亿平方米瓷砖，仅陶瓷板块的营业收入就超过30亿美元，相当于集团总营业收入的37％。 集团拥有广泛的产品系列（包括其他建筑装饰材料，如地毯等），并已决定扩大其在瓷砖领域的产能，这一领域正以稳定的市场增长份额替代其他建筑装饰产品。
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工厂持续节能减排项目的一部分，在烧成设备方面选用了西蒂贝恩特先进的泰坦?技术， 这包含三条配备MHR 230°C余热利用系统的窑炉，从而优化能源效率。
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工厂还配置有来自安科拉公司的干法高速磨边线以及切割线。安科拉是专门制造陶瓷产品深加工设备的公司，于2015年并入西蒂贝恩特集团，财报显示其今年业务增长了20％。
