M-Con adopts “egg laying” system to meet new market demands

HawkeyePedershaab, Iowa, 52637, USA


M-Con Pipe and Products, Inc., was established in Ayr, just west of Toronto, in 2004 to serve the growing needs of the Southern Ontario market. The firm uses its original HawkeyePedershaab PipePlusPlus Machine to produce concrete pipe and manholes. Over the years, demand in product volume and variety have moved the firm to expand its plant footprint and capabilities. Recently, the firm adopted an innovative new approach to dry cast production that has enabled increased product flexibility, greater output, and significantly minimized capital and operating costs. The new system from HawkeyePedershaab combines a modular box culvert mold system with a computer-controlled concrete feeder and an overhead crane to enable “egg laying” style production. In addition to the box culvert equipment, M-Con has also installed a new robotic manhole base production system—HawkeyePedershaab’s Smartcast—that has reduced labor, increased accuracy and cut delivery time for manhole bases with even the most complex flow patterns.
