AUTOMATION OF ‘WET CAST’ CONCRETE PRODUCTS

Thanks to the work undertaken by their Reaserch and Development Department Vortex Hydra are pleased to announce a ‘patent protected’ advanced technology in the automation of the industrial process known as “Wet Casting”. This “Wet Casting” process enables high definition reproduction of the natural appearance of stone, wood, brick etc. to be replicated on newly manufactured concrete products .... for use as quality cladding of exterior or internal walls.  Such products with their high added value content offer extreme selling appeal in the growing building market.

Previous to this new automation innovation, apart from a few cases where large format/repetitive design have been produced, this attractive type of building product has always been associated with high labour intensity in the manufacturing process.

 Vortex Hydra can now offer a fully automation system that covers the entire manufacturing process:

 - Batching and concrete mixing system 

- New patented mould designs 

- Automated mould filling using a vibro-compaction system

- Curing system with automatic loading and unloading of the products/moulds 

- Automatic product/mould separation system 

- Semi-automatic product colouring system 

- Automatic product packaging

 

The automation of wet cast product manufacture has revolutionised the management of production costs.
