Algerian Briqueterie EPRA automates equipment with Sacmi/Cosmec

The management of the EPRA/ASICOM group attaches great importance to innovation, low energy consumption and high plant efficiency, and has now opted to invest in modern and reliable automation technology.

With Sacmi/Cosmec, the brickworks contracted a strong partner who can provide the necessary support on technical and technological level. The goal is to project brickworks to match the quality level of renowned manufacturers on the Algerian market.

Automation is a significant part of the project for the overall modernization of the existing brickworks and comprises a new handling system for the drying supports, a new unloading system for dried products, and a new unloading system for fired products.

For Sacmi Heavy Clay, which develops and produces such systems in synergy with Cosmec, part of the Sacmi Group, this strategically important order consolidates the growing importance of the Sacmi Group on the Algerian market and opens the way for further similar projects in this region.
