Capaccioli is a world leading supplier of machinery and integrated plants for the production of heavy clay products.
In the ’90s, Capaccioli has studied the soft mud technology, an old method of forming bricks by adding water to the clay and then pressing the obtained mud into a mould box. Shaped bricks are easily removed by adding sand or water into the mould before the brick forming. The soft-mud process produces either a sand- or water-struck finish in a non-uniform texture, which gives the brick the appearance of handmade or antique brick.
After several years of research, Capaccioli has developed and perfected its own patented technology called EASYMUD, which is characterized by high and fully automated production of simulated hand-moulded bricks.
EASYMUD technology is a complete automatic system to produce floor tiles, face covering bricks, tiles and special pieces in soft mud with the “handmade” characteristic, using several surface finishing such as sand and hand smooth treatment. This technology includes completely automatic cycle for piece forming, mould treatment and material loading and unloading.
The specific technical features of EASYMUD plants are:
- Production/hour = 4000 pieces
- Production/hour = 8000 pieces
- Production/hour = 12000 pieces and multiples
- Closed mould -> use of sand
- Open mould -> no use of sand
The advantages of the automatic EASYMUD line made by Capaccioli are:
- Extremely fast product switch
- Automatic moulding and de-moulding
- Low investment cost
- Capacity up to 30 million pieces/year
