Improving Production Speed of Cast Concrete

Jack Steinbuch

In designing and manufacturing custom vibratory equipment, I see customer inquiries for a myriad of potential applications to solve production challenges or improve production rates.  Recently, a producer of decorative stones presented us with a challenge.  The stones are produced from wet cast concrete mix molds.  These molds need to be vibrated to de-aerate (remove air bubbles) and consolidate the concrete in the molds.  This was being done manually on a vibrating table, typically one mold at a time.  They wanted to automate their production to reduce their labor time.  They had invested in production equipment that would quickly fill the molds, but had yet to come up with a method to take advantage of that automation by vibrating each mold at the same rate.

We concluded that our Read More…
