The influence of base plates on compactionin concrete block machines

IFF Institut für Fertigteiltechnik und Fertigbau Weimar e.V., 99423 Weimar, Germany


Concrete goods find wide application in construction work for road traffic areas, gardening and landscaping. They are manufactured in a great variety of shapes and colours. The major part of concrete goods produced in Germany and Europe is manufactured in concrete block machines which mould and compact the products on base plates. The products are then transported further and stored in high racks on these same base plates. A very intensive shock vibration procedure is employed for shaping and compacting the concrete mix in the concrete block machine. In this, periodic impact sequences of determined intensity are generated through the coordinated movement of certain subassemblies in the manufacturing system – the working masses. This activity is conducted into the concrete mix being compacted via the moulding subassembly. Base plates belong to the working masses of a block machine’s vibratory component subassembly.
