In late July 2016 Tobermore ordered a finishing line for paving stones and hermetic slabs from SR-Schindler. The plant was delivered in late May 2017 and went into operation in September/October. Tobermore had already purchased a 1200-tonne hermetic press with horizontal depositing device, a shotblasting line and an on-edge packing from SR-Schindler in 2009. At that time the plant had already been designed such that the hardened slabs were placed by the slab transfer device of the dry-side horizontal depositing device onto a roller conveyor with an angular transfer unit. In the first stage of expansion the slabs were then conveyed in a straight line into the shotblasting plant. In the present second stage of expansion the slabs are moved by means of the angular transfer unit diagonally into the new finishing line.
