The PipeFlex RL System is a flexible modular machine system which can be equipped both with Central core or Vertical vibration module to produce high quality drycast/wetcast concrete products, such as concrete pipe or box culvert for sewage and drainage system, including:
- Reinforced and non-reinforced pipe
- Circular and non-circular pipe with a “bell” or in-wall joint
- Ogee pipe
- Pipe with simple and advanced types of flexible rubber gasket including integrated joint
- Complete manhole system, incl. base section, riser, cone, cover slab and grade ring
The PipeFlex RL System features semi-automatic operation. Depending on the specific product manufactured, the layout of the machine and the selected optional features, the PipeFlex RL System is operated by 1 – 2 operators.
The PipeFlex RL System comes with quick mold change which brings down the changing of mold size to approx. 30 min from one dimension to the other. For the production of short to long pipe , the casting level is adjusted mechanically on the elevating beams or by elevating cylinders.
In its double station version it is possible to operate simultaneously two different products by switching in turns the common concrete feeder from one station to the other. Alternatively, mold change can take place on one station while full capacity operation takes place on the other station.
The PipeFlex RL System is equipped with a PLC control unit and a touch panel for viewing the number of revolutions from vibrator frequency converter.
The PLC allows the operational parameters of the machine to be adjusted in accordance with the real production condition at the site.
Concrete feeding to the mould set is done by rotating scraper or belt distributor, and vibrator is electrically operated, whereas pressing/rocking for spigot forming is hydraulically operated.
The PipeFlex RL System can be supplied with a number of add-on options and features to make operations and handling even easier and improve production and working conditions in general.
- Direct concrete feeding by distribution belt
- Reinforcement centering equipment
- Double station combination with second station as central core or vertical vibration
- Hydraulic fixation of core vibrator for quick mold change
- Hydraulically operated pallet locks
The PipeFlex System can manufacture up to 15 units per hour for short units. It offers an annual production capacity of up to 30,000 Tons in one-shift production.
For circular product, dimensions range from
ø300 – ø3600 mm in inner diameter and lengths from 500 – 3000 mm.
For square and rectangular product, dimensions are 3000 x 3000 mm in 2500 mm height.
All other products are limited to 50 Tons for product and mold equipment together.
