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
- 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
- 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
- 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.
Direct washing machine
For washing hermetic slabs in the press cycle as a bypass turntable or space-saving inline version.
Marbling and coloring machine
Stand-alone mobile system for marbling and/or coloring of the visible side of the slab.
Station 7: Ejection station
For ejecting the green slab out of the press onto the slab carriage. 2 ejection systems are available.
Station 5 and 6: Prepressing and main pressing station
Beginning of the compaction process and water exchange between the face mix and back mix concrete. Final compaction of the concrete slab.
Station 4: Backmix filling station
Complete filling to the upper edge, as well as targeted over-filling in sections of the mold using back mix feeding.
Station 2 and 3: Facemix distribution and service station
Different systems are available for optimum distribution of various face mix concretes. Plus service area.
