Vortex Hydra and subsidiary company Shanghai Vortex Tile Machines Co Ltd (SVTM) announce that during the month of October 2014 they successfully completed the commissioning of a new MATRIX fully automated concrete roof tile production plant in China on behalf of HANDAN WADE NEW TYPE BUILDING MATERIALS CO LTD based in the city of Handan, Hebei Province, China.

The customer is an existing roof tile producer who previously operated three semi-automatic roof tile production lines that were of local manufacturer and operated with steel pallets.

With the objective of increasing their production with a higher volume plant, increasing their product range and obtaining maximum efficiency by employing full automation they decided Vortex Hydra provided the solutions.  The new MATRIX plant consists of the following:

  • Continuous action extrusion machine (60 tiles per minute) to manufacture Flat and Thin Leading Edge (TLE) tile profiles incorporating the advanced cutting system that also can provide a round bull nose cut on the front edge of the tile
  • Precision manufactured aluminium pallets and extrusion heads to produce three different tile profiles
  • Inverter controlled product handling conveyor network with height adjustment de-palleting mechanism to suit each different tile profile, pallet oiling system and pallet rotation device
  • ‘Compact’ automatic curing system providing easy access and maintenance
  • Multi tile surface finishing availability including ribbed effect, scraped effect, colour en-masse, acrylic paint on both wet and dry tiles
  • Automatic packing and palletising of three different tile profile types

SVTM were actively involved in the project acting as the main liaison partner between the customer and our Italian head office.

It is rewarding to know that Vortex Hydra were selected for this project not only for both the high product quality and efficiency of their machinery systems but also for their recognition in China as being a market leader in the fully automatic production plant sector.
