From the aggregate silos the different raw materials are transported to the dosing and mixing plant (01), where the various aggregates are processed into main or face concrete.
The concrete is supplied, depending on the plant layout by use of a transport system (02) to the concrete block making machine (03). Here, the concrete is filled into a stone mould and compacted by vibration. Products can be made with and without face mix layer.
The still fresh concrete products then pass on production pallets via wet side transport (04) to the elevator (05), and if desired, with the involvement of quality assurance systems.
Production pallets are transferred to the finger car (06), which is then forwarded to a curing rack system (07). After curing, the production pallets with the stones are passed via finger car and intermediate finger car (08) to the lowerator (09).
The lowerator transfers the production pallets cyclically to the return transport (10).
An optional centering device (11) loosens and centers the cured stones on the production pallets.
In the cubing device (13) the stones are assembled into cubes and prepared for further removal. Via the cube transport (14) the stone packets reach the final take-off position (e.g. by forklift).
Used production pallets are fed back to the concrete block making machine via a cross transport and/or a production pallet buffer system (12) .
To produce products with special surface character Masa offers a variety of suface treatment equipment (15) for both the fresh side and dry side operations.
For the electric power system of the plant, Masa prefers installation of the power panels in a Powertainer (17).
The Masa plant control (18) and safety devices ensure optimal and safe process operation, resulting in a high availability of the block making machine.
