Adding new countries to its export geography almost every day, Elkon has finally managed to bring its machinery to Japan, known as the country of technology. A Japanese company that supplies cement, ready-mix concrete, prestressed reinforced concrete products, concrete piles and a wide variety of construction materials with a history of 90 years in the sector and with more than 600 employees, has chosen Elkon for the opening of its new factory in Fukushima.
The company decided to invest in a new concrete plant in Fukushima region, where there are a lot of construction works are going on preventing the release of radioactive material after the unfortunate nuclear plant power accident. Their aim is to set up a concrete plant to supply concrete to the precast factories around. Finally, they preferred Elkon, which set trends in their field and are manufactured with the highest technology for their new investment.
As a result of long discussions on technical details and technology exchange, the Japanese company decided on Elkomix-120 Quick Master, one of Elkon‘s compact concrete batching plants. As this concrete plant is used for supplying concrete for precast factories, the plant is equipped with specially designed twin shaft mixer for the production of low-slump concrete. Elkon’s specially designed twin shaft mixer for precast concrete has a unique paddle allignment for ensuring the mixing of low-slump concrete withuot compromising the homogenuity and quality of the concrete supplied.
New concrete plant for the Fukushima region
The Quick Master Elkomix-120 compact concrete plant, with its main unit, can be installed on a completely flat surface. Thanks to the fact that this plant is equipped with a 4x30 m3 in-line type aggregate hopper, horizontal cement silos and a shuttle-type aggregate pre-feeding system, it offers the user the great advantage of easy installation, portability and low-cost maintenance. There are also many other important elements to highlight in this concrete plant, such as an automatic high-pressure mixer washing system to guarantee quick and efficient cleaning of its interior, a surveillance system with 4 cameras located in key places to monitor the operation in detail and a camera system inside the twinshaft mixer to observe the quality of the mixture in real time. Since the concrete plants will be installed in an area of high seismicity, the main structure of the plant has been specially reinforced for the acceleration produced by the seismic movements that are regular in this region and the entire facility has been designed in accordance with Japanese standards.
Due to travel bans imposed by Japan due to the pandemic, the concrete plant was installed and commissioned by the customer‘s own installation team with remote support from Elkon engineers. The Elkomix-120 Quick Master concrete batching plant, with its modular design and pre-installed from Elkon‘s factories, could be installed quickly and easily. The company subsequently immediately ordered a second concrete plant due to its satisfaction, again choosing Elkon for its many other projects in Mongolia and Japan.
The reason why one of the leading ready-mix concrete companies in a technology-exporting country like Japan chose Elkon was because of its concrete mixing technology and the constant investment in technology that Elkon has made for many years thus demonstrating its commitment to giving an important place to technology and innovation.
