PMSA® provides manual product and production board handling systems for the process of manufacturing bricks, blocks and pavers. The chain conveyor and gantry system is manually operated, requires smaller capital investment and can be customised for customer requirements and the size of a plant.

A chain conveyor and gantry system is used to transport production boards with newly produced concrete products from the brick, block and paver making machine to the individual production rows where the product is cured for 24 hours. It lends itself to use on all product types, including bricks, blocks, pavers and special concrete products like retaining wall blocks and decking blocks.

A second gantry can also be used to move partially cured products with production board back onto the chain conveyor, allowing them to be transported to the end of the conveyor for product handling and packaging.

The manual gantry is commonly used on the RE1400, RE1400-LITE, VB4X, VB4, VB1X, VB1, and RE600 plants.

A chain conveyor and gantry system can also be added to a Twin-UNI Plant and UNI Plant.


PMSA® customers have found the chain conveyor and gantry system to be cost-effective, simple to operate and a robust method of handling product and production boards. The system ensures the efficient handling of products and is a manually-operated alternative to mechanised systems.

As the system is manual, it is ideal for plants with speeds from 12 seconds per cycle on bricks, blocks and pavers and 14 seconds for hollow blocks and special products.


Design features of the chain conveyor and gantry system ensure simple operation and ease of use for production staff.
