It is with the greatest pleasure that I invite the readers of Zi Brick and Tile Industry International to Tecnargilla, the pre-eminent international exhibition of technologies for ceramic and brick production to be held in Rimini from 24 to 28 September 2012.
The trade fair is one of the most important dates for professionals working in these sectors as it provides a unique opportunity to preview all the latest technological innovations at a single venue. The leading manufacturers of machinery and equipment for ceramics and brick production will all be taking part, the latter in the Claytec section devoted to heavy clay machinery manufacturers. With each passing edition, the show has attracted an ever greater number of international visitors and buyers.
Even during these difficult years, our companies have continued to put forward innovations that serve as a stimulus for the world of ceramic and brick production. The product and process innovation that we offer our customers is one of the few tools they can use to gain an edge in a competitive market.
At the show our member companies will be presenting new solutions that allow ceramic tile, sanitaryware and brick and roofing tile manufacturers to make substantial savings in fuel consumption, energy recovery and reduced polluting emissions. They will also be showcasing major innovations in production process automation, an aspect that is becoming increasingly important in Asia and developing countries, along with quality control, technical performance and aesthetic quality of ceramic products.
