Kromatech 2014: focus on colour and creativity


Tecnargilla 2014 confirms its centrality for the creative designers of the world ceramic industry.

In fact Kromatech - the section of the Rimini fair dedicated to colour and glaze, design studios and raw materials - will see the participation of the industry's top players. Among those to be present at the fair are Colorobbia, Coloritalia-Wanxing, Esmalglass-Itaca, Esmaltes, Stylgraph, Torrecid, and Vidres.

Kromatech, which has grown since the last event, will also host the largest suppliers of raw materials for the ceramic industry, another essential component in the creation of ceramic tiles and sanitary fittings of high technical and aesthetic quality.

Four months before the event, all exhibiting companies are actively engaged in developing and fine-tuning new technological solutions to present at the show.

In support of creativity in the ceramic tile segment, Tecnargilla 2014 will above all be the showcase for a brand new protagonist - digital glazing - the natural evolution of the inkjet decoration systems that have extensively revolutionised the tile decoration process in recent years (approximately 3,000 inkjet printers now operating throughout the world).

Alongside the ink and glaze producers who will present the new digital glazes, in an absolute world premiere the machine manufacturers will show new application systems and integrated solutions for digital lines that will start the final run up to the definitive digitalization of glazing lines. This technological transition will allow the aesthetic level of materials to be raised and production lines and process management to be rationalized, thus leading to increased efficiency of profitability for ceramic businesses.

The "digital tile" of the future will also be in the spotlight at Tecnargilla during the Acimac 6th Annual Meeting dedicated to digital technologies, where the sector's largest companies will illustrate the results of research into glazes, inks, printers and colour management systems to an international public.

Tecnargilla 2014, organised by Rimini Fiera and promoted in collaboration with Acimac, will be held in Rimini from 22 - 26 September.
