The FlexWay® optional extra, for example, offers enormous benefits in production as a slip system for all paving stone moulds:
- The upper part of the mould is divided into two. The system can be installed easily and quickly onto different parts of the upper mould due to this modular design.
- The cycle times are shortened as vibration is no longer needed.
- Both the mould and the machine are protected against abrasion.
- An overall improvement in the quality of the concrete product
The horizontal flexibility of the upper part of the mould is controlled by an integrated pneumatic brake. This is triggered as soon as the tamper shoes enter the mould cavities. The pneumatic brake is applied as soon as the tamper shoes travel out of the mould cavities during the demoulding process. In this way, the current position of the tamper shoes is stored in relation to the mould cavities and utilised for contact-free entry into the cavities again during the next cycle. This results in 100 per cent centring from one cycle to the next.
