At the Rickenbach site, the Müller-Steinag Group operates two self-sufficient concrete block lines in separate production halls. High-quality paving stones, masonry blocks, slope reinforcements, filter plates, block steps etc. are manufactured on Omag block making machines, which have already been in use for many years. The older of the two Omag block making plants was built in 1981 and has thus been in operation for a proud 40 years. Such a long period of operation is also possible because the plant has been continuously adapted through modifications and is regularly maintained by renowned machine construction companies. In the case of the younger block making machine, for example, the conversion to facing and dye metering was carried out in 2000, while in 2010 the plant was equipped with a Siemens S7 programmable logic controller, and for years Rekers packaging robots have been ensuring improved processes on the dry side. In a further step, a new concrete curing system has now been installed by Kraft Curing Systems GmbH at the Rickenbach plant to counteract storage capacity bottlenecks in the curing chamber.
