The new Greek factory extends over a 36,000 square metre covered area and houses five production lines: two for perforated and masonry blocks, two for roof tiles and a fifth for special pieces.All the extrusion equipment for the four extruders was supplied by TECNOFILIERE
, which provided the Greek plant with special dies constructed with extensive use of hard metal. The cores and liners are made of widia and the clay conveying cone is produced entirely by mechanical machining operations.Pictured: 8-exit extrusion of 90x150mm perforated blocks
