Machine Alpha

Alpha Mobile Egglayer Concrete Block Machine for production of Concrete Blocks, Pavers and Kerbstones on a Sliding Steel Plate

Alpha is a universal Automatic Mobile Egglayer Concrete Block Machine that achieves highest standards of quality and speed for concrete products between 60 to 300 mm high. Alpha can produce Concrete Blocks, Kerbstones and excellent quality Pavers. The advanced design allows for very flexible and fast production allowing fast change of production from one product to another.

The main advantages of Alpha are that it is self-propelled, fully automatic Mobile Egglayer Concrete Block Machine, with vibro-compression operation. The production is done on a sliding, abrasion resistant resistant high quality steel plate. Since the smoothness of the Steel Plate is always better than Concrete Platform, this solution offers better finishing and size control of the concrete product. The Vibro-Pressing system also works better in such a situation, and issues of the concrete product sticking to the ground is also avoided. The flexibility of the machine also allows to bypass the sliding plate system and lay products directly on the concrete platform, like in case of particularly heavy products like kerbstones .

With a CE approved system, Alpha is a truly universal Mobile Egglayer Concrete Block Machine for the production of concrete blocks with variable height between 60 mm and 300 mm. With an endless possibility of applicable moulds, it is capable of producing any type of concrete products, right from Concrete Blocks to Interlocking Pavers to Road Kerbs. It uses Lateral Vibration techniques with special vibrators; Stripper with upper vibrations with easily controllable frequencies of electric vibrators, depending on type of mould and material mix.

This arrangement allows easy switching of different moulds moulds with different heights quickly saving precious production time. The Heavy Mould vibration causes the vibration of the steel plate that is independent of the machine main frame thereby optimising the vibration power and finishing of the product. In adverse environmental conditions of humidity, dust, voltage fluctuations, an electromechanical-hydraulic system consisting of a series of limit switches and cams, is used to ensure safe operation at all times.Alpha is double frame, one fixed and one mobile section, driven by hydraulic systems made from Heavy Industrial Quality Steel frames with a Fixed steel plate position.

How Does the Alpha Work?

A large hopper with a 1,500 litre hopper capacity receives concrete which is then delivered in a uniform and precise way. Depending upon the products being manufactured, the quantity of the concrete can be easily adjusted. The material shaking grid Inside the moving feeder ensures appropriate and even filling, with alternate, symmetrical, and adjustable movement, with dedicated cylinders. Special high performance wheels are fixed on the moving feeder forward and backward sliding guides to ensure long and trouble free operation of the machine. The filler box is in a hydraulically locked position during the process of filling of the mould with the only shaking movement of the steel grid inside the filler box. 4 large columns of machine guide the double speed mould lifting for optimum de-moulding during the operation. During the process of de-moulding, the pressing stripper is hydraulic locked.

2 high quality inverters for frequency control optimise vibrations for any type of mould. The Mobile Egglayer Concrete Block Machine Alpha also has 4 sliding guides stripper, with automatic hydraulic lock for easy and optimum adjustment during the de-moulding stage. The machine is equipped with an independent motor-gear assembly for movement as the machine can travel at twice the working speed, rapid changes of position can be accomplished during the movement along the track using 35 mm wide Adiprene covered rubber wheels (DU PONT) which helps to minimise damages of the concrete floor. The Mobile Egglayer Concrete Block Machine Alpha has a hydraulic unit for single and double effect cylinder movement, with its own heat exchanger and thermostat cooling system. A low voltage (24 V AC.) control panel is fitted on a swivelling arm and is easily accessible from the control platform. To increase the working safety of the workers and people around the machine under operation; Grids, protection bonnets and front bar for obstacle detection are connected to the machine protection circuit. This ensures consistent safe working conditions thanks to safety circuit breakers with forced opening of the normally open contact.
