Description

The PMSA® RE1400 high performance brick, block and paver making machine is an advanced best-in-class, large-capacity machine. This powerful concrete brick, block and paver making machine, with cycle times from 10 seconds (depending on product) can produce 198 000 bricks, 120 000 pavers, 72 000 maxi bricks, 36 000 hollow blocks (140 mm width) or 4 500 kerbstones (figure 7) per 9-hour shift on a 1 400 mm x 950 mm wood or composite production board. The RE1400 has an increased product output compared to the RE1400-LITE and VB4X range of machinery without requiring an increase in production staff. Depending on the level of automation, plant configuration and options, a plant can be operated with as few as 8 production and product handling staff.

The RE1400 includes the top-of-the-range 4-motor UltraVibe CVS™ (Continuous Vibration System), with instant amplitude and frequency control independent from each other and both parameters adjustable in less than 0.2 of a second. The UltraVibe CVS™ provides faster cycle times, high vibration energy and smoother operation, resulting in maximum product density and compaction, lower energy consumption and less wear and tear on the block machine.

The RE1400 is designed to consistently produce high-quality bricks, industrial strength pavers, hollow blocks, decking blocks, retaining wall blocks, garden kerbs, industrial strength infrastructure kerbstones, as well as special products up to 400 mm height. The PMSA® RE1400 is Built to Last® owing to its robust heavy-duty tubular frame.

Due to the high productivity, technology and life span of the RE1400, it will produce a full range of standard and specialised high quality industrial strength products with low production costs for decades.

Productivity

PMSA® customers have found the RE1400 capable of exceeding production capacities. The technology used in the RE1400 allows for dependable output every day.

Due to PMSA®’s excellent market-leading technical support and immediately available spare parts support, many PMSA® customers exceed the stated production capacities, resulting in improved productivity and increased profits.

Technology

Design features of the RE1400 high-performance block machine include the top-of-the-range 4-motor UltraVibe CVS™ (Continuous Vibration System), full PLC controlled operation, pneumatic mould and tamper clamping for fast mouldbox changing and a floating tamper, which results in increased compaction and product density. The heavy-duty tubular frame is designed to withstand decades of working continuously under demanding multi-shift operating conditions without failing or cracking.

The RE1400 includes heavy-duty tamper vibrators, precision product height control, servo hydraulic valves with encoders for closed loop control. These technical design features ensure lower cement consumption, high compaction, excellent dimensional consistency of concrete products and fast cycle times from 10 seconds (depending on product).

PMSA® provides technology training and workshops for our customers to assist them in continually improving production, quality and profitability.

Built to Last®

Buy once, buy right! Having a machine that lasts for decades means you don’t have to replace your RE1400 every few years; it has been Built to Last®. PMSA®’s RE1400 high performance brick, block and paver making machine will continue to produce profits that can be reinvested into expanding your business instead of replacing inferior equipment.

Our customer’s success stories prove the PMSA®’s Built to Last® philosophy, with customers operating RE1400 machinery on continuous multi-shift production cycles. This results in PMSA® customers enjoying greater success.

PMSA®’s RE1400 is Built to Last® and is the ideal large size machine for a brick, block and paver making business. Features of the RE1400 include:

Mechanical Features

  • Heavy-duty tubular frame for long-life and machine rigidity, which results in the consistent production of quality concrete products for decades.
  • 4 hard-chromed guide columns with easily replaceable wear-resistant guide bushes for accurate tamper and mould box movement to ensure dimensional consistency of products.

Vibration System Features

  • 4-motor UltraVibe CVS™ (Continuous Vibration System) with both instant amplitude and frequency control independent from each other, with both parameters adjustable in less than 0.2 seconds. The UltraVibe CVS™ provides faster cycle times, high vibration energy and smoother operation, resulting in maximum product density and compaction, reduced cement consumption, lower energy consumption and less wear and tear on the block machine.
  • Pre and main vibration frequency and force are independently controlled for maximising product consistency, compaction and fast cycle times.
  • The UltraVibe CVS™ allows for specific vibration force and frequencies for each different product type, resulting in optimal compaction to suit each product being manufactured, as well as increased mould life.
  • Electrical control panel includes timer-controlled pre-vibration for optimal mould filling.
  • Main vibration is controlled either over time for product density or upon reaching product height.

Mould Filling and Feeder-Box Features

  • High speed feeder-box agitator is fully controllable to optimise mould filling of a wide range of different products with varying heights.
  • Feeder-box runs in rails with smooth linear movement resulting in faster and consistent mould filling.
  • Pneumatic independently controlled feeder-box scrapers (both front and rear) ensure reduced concrete spillage.

Tamper and Mould Box Features

  • Tamper vibration for increased product density and smooth top surface.
  • Heavy-duty tamper brake assembly to lock tamper movement during mould-lifting, preventing product damage.

Hydraulic Features

  • Powerful hydraulic system with accumulator, servo proportional hydraulic valves and encoders for closed loop PLC feedback and variable speed during the stroke of every hydraulic operation. This results in smooth, precise and fast movement of tamper, mould, feeder-box and production board feeder for faster cycle times, lower maintenance costs and extended component life.
  • Hydraulic power pack and machine controls are placed away from the machine for operator safety and unobstructed view of machine operation.
  • Concrete silo and feeder-box assembly is easily adjustable by hydraulic operation to accommodate different mould heights for quick mould changes. Due to the mechanical design features and superior hydraulic and control systems, the RE1400 is capable of consistent product quality and fast cycle times from 10 seconds (depending on product).

PLC and SCADA Features

  • All machine parameters can be changed using a touch-screen interface while the machine is in operation for instant adaptation to changing moisture content and aggregate consistency, without stopping the machine.

Production Board Handling Features

  • Production board magazine allows for continuous and fast production board feeding.
  • Production board size 1 400 mm x 950 mm ideal for semi or fully automated product and production board handling systems.
