Clockwise: Weckenmann’s Mobile Battery Mould; Sommer’s production plant for precast concrete elements; concrete pipe making machinery from Apollo HawkeyePedershaab Concrete Technology; and the Hydro-Com software for Hydronix moisture sensors.

Bauma Conexpo India 2016 will feature a wide range of products targeted at the concrete industry in the local market and across Asia.

Among them is the Mobile Battery Mould (MBM) from Weckenmann Anlagentechnik, which is designed for vertical manufacturing of precast walls and floor slabs. It is an ideal solution for large temporary construction sites.

This mobile precast factory allows the manufacturing of walls and floor slabs in the immediate vicinity of the construction site. Its investment costs are low and, due to its compact design, it requires a small installation footprint to produce elements just in time. Plus, only few people are needed to set it up or dismantle it in just few days.

According to Weckenmann, the first mobile factories are already in operation in Singapore.

Headquartered in Germany, Weckenmann provides machinery and plants for the precast concrete industry. The company’s products include the setting up of turnkey plants, pallet circulation systems, concrete conveyors and distributors, tilting tables, battery moulds and shuttering systems. Weckenmann offers a complete solution, from conceptualisation, plant design and project management, to the turnkey delivery of the plant.

UK-based manufacturer Hydronix will introduce a new software for easy calibration of its moisture sensors. The Hydro-Com software has been designed to work with the latest Hydronix moisture sensors, enabling users to configure and calibrate their sensors from anywhere in the world. It is an easy-to-use solution, suitable for a single engineer monitoring a single installation to global producers with many plants worldwide.

Another German manufacturer, Sommer Precast Technology, will offer its production engineering and automation systems for the precast concrete element industry.

Sommer offers concept, design and implementation of production plants for the precast concrete element industry, ranging from pallet circulation plants to stationary production plants. The concepts are modular, efficient and cost-effective, and can be adapted to meet specific market requirements.

Furthermore, Apollo HawkeyePedershaab Concrete Technologies will showcase its vertical vibrated cast pipe making machinery, which ranges from 100 to 2,600 mm in diameter; automatic cage welding machinery for concrete pipes; and automatic block making machinery.

Apollo HawkeyePedershaab Concrete Technologies Pvt Ltd (AHCT) is a joint venture company, which was formed in 2012 between Apollo and HawkeyePedershaab, USA, to manufacture and sell machines to produce concrete pipes, manhole systems and box culverts with vibrated casting technology.
