Insulated Concrete Block Making Machine

Fully automatic block machine for making insulated concrete blocks

In the insulation concrete block model, MEC Evolution-20 block machine is equipped with fully automatic MEC insulation feeder and it is designed to make insulated concrete blocks fully automatic. Insulated concrete blocks are designed for quality living and contains many beneficial properties such as very low thermal conductivity, noise cancellation and fast building time.

Concrete intelligence and efficiency

MEC Evolution-20 block machine is equipped with fully automatic MEC insulation feeder and additional software at the manufacturing phase. Automatic insulation feed is based on robot clams and cylinders to feed insulation on product pallet at the beginning of each cycle. Feeder also separates and sets up insulation blocks ready during ongoing cycle, so there is no waiting or stoppages. Only insulation packages on truck pallets has to be lift on conveyor.

MEC Evolution-20 block machine is based entirely on electromechanical operations. It is equipped with powerful and accurate servo motors as main power source. Improved servo gear motor technology guarantees precise and fast movements in all conditions and improves energy efficiency* totally to a new level. MEC Evolution-20 is developed version of it’s previous model MEC ELECTRO.

The design of the block machine is based on decades of experience in tested, constantly evolving mechanical solutions and new solutions developed as a result of active development cooperation with customers, for the needs of efficient production and market development.
