The cake is cut with high-precision cutting machines.
The cake is cut by high-precision cutting machines. Cutting is done by cutting knives and by pneumatically tensioned cutting wires
- The pre-cutter and vertical cutter cut the block length and panel width. In this station the profling (tongue and groove) can be cut into the cake with profling knives
- The horizontal cutter cuts the block and panel thickness; for special demands in surface fnish and thickness accuracy beyond the traditional building standards, HESS AAC SYSTEMS provides proven alternative cutting systems with oscillating wires while maintaining the advantages of the tilt cake cutting system
- The cross cutter cuts the block height and the panel length. Optionally hand-grips can be milled in the blocks in the green stage
The use of aerated concrete
is steadily increasing.
Innovative building systems with aerated concrete are the future!
Process control and plant automation
The entire production process is controlled by modern automation systems…
Unloading and packing
After the autoclaving is completed, the cakes are destacked and un-loaded from the cooking frames.
In the autoclaves the cakes are cured for ca. 10–12 hours at a temperature of 190° C with saturated steam at a pressure of 12 bar.
Tilting back and green separation
The HESS AAC SYSTEMS plants have combined the advantages of the tilt-cake and ﬂat-cake system.
HESS AAC SYSTEMS plants are ideal for the production of large format reinforced assembly components.
