Handling and curing

For removing the slabs from the slab carriage using a vacuum lifter, to turn by 180 ° and to place on the flat slab displacer of the flat depositing device on the wet side.

Handling and curing

Green slab turning device

  • To remove the slabs from the slab depositing carriage by means of a vacuum lifter for 180° turning and for delivery to the slab transfer device of the flat depositing device-wet side
  • Consisting of a solid frame, servomotor turning arm and a lifting unit with interchangeable suction units depending on the slab formats
  • Quick adjustment to product height by servomotor lifting movement of the suction frame

Slab transfer devices

  • Slab transfer device-wet side picks up the products from the carriage or from the green slab turning device and passes them to the following flat depositing device-wet side
  • Universal slab transfer device-dry side takes the products from the flat depositing device-dry side and passes them to
    the value adding line or packing line
  • Consist of electrically driven horizontal slides, lifting mast and turning device and format-dependent suction units on
    the wet side and a universal vacuum suction plate for all formats on the dry side, with vacuum generator
  • Travel, lifting and rotary drives designed as servomotors

Finger car

  • For transporting the filled pallet stacks with green slabs to the shelf spaces, the empty pallet stack to the flat depositing device-wet side and the pallet stack with cured slabs to the flat depositing devicedry side, and for transporting the empty pallets from there to the press or shelf
  • Fully automatic, including control. The system is designed so that two pallet stacks can be positioned one above the other in the shelf spaces
  • Upper carriage designed with 180° turning device so that the loading and unloading positions can be opposite to each other

Curing chamber

  • To shorten the curing time and reduce the required number of pallets
  • Further increase in product quality (reduction of efflorescence)
  • In galvanized steel version
  • Available as a large-chamber or singlechamber system including empty chambers
  • Complete system insulated and equipped with roller gates
  • Various systems can be used to optimize the curing process:
  • Specific heat
    - By heat of hydration during curing of concrete
  • Vaporization
    - Steam within a few seconds
    - High efficiency
    - Low emissions
    - Low space requirement
  • Moisturization system
    - No moisture formation due to standing fog
    - Less water consumption
    - Low energy consumption

For all curing processes, air circulation systems are  advantageous for uniform temperature and moisture distribution inside the chamber.

  • Air circulation systems
    - For even distribution of air within the chambers
    - Extraction of the chamber air to dry the chamber
    - Direction of the chamber air after the curing process into a new chamber for preheating. Savings of around
    20% of the heating costs

Concrete block refinement 
creates room for creativity

The demand for diverse shapes and sophisticated surface designs, such as natural-looking stone surfaces, is constantly increasing.
