Abece is very proud to announce that their first concrete roof tile plant for the Dubai area is currently being delivered and installed. This plant is designed for multi-profile production and has future upgrade capability for meeting high market demand. The supply comprises a complete package, including raw materials handling, mixing station, and equipment for field and trim roof tile production. For the batching and mixing system, Abece is working together with its South African partner, Pan Mixers SA (PMSA).
“The cooperation with PMSA has been strong since 2007, when we together did our first complete factory installation in South Africa, still being the factory with the highest capacity in Africa. Now we are looking forward to a new successful installation and startup of the plant in Dubai and an exciting future together with our customer, UK Roof Tiles. They chose to work with us because of the good reputation of outstanding quality and superb service Abece has in the market. It is excellent to know that our customers cherish our hard work to develop and supply the best solutions available for any market needs,” says Karl Korsfeldt, Abece Sales & Marketing Manager.
Abece has developed new concrete roof tile profiles to meet the market demand in the region. The plant setup is designed to manufacture tiles with various coloring options, full body pigmenting, antique body pigmenting, top coating on both the wet and the dry side, as well as antique and splash coloring. The tried-and-tested extruder is upgraded with features such as a frequency-controlled roller speed and drip-free water spray nozzles for automatic knife cleaning. As a matter of course, the plant is equipped with safety systems in accordance with the highest standards. The batching and mixing plant for Dubai has been specially designed for UK Roof Tiles, meeting the requirement for a daily output of 32,000 tiles. It is fully automated and equipped with an advanced batching and weighing system including moisture measuring control to maintain the highest level of concrete consistency between batches, compared with conventional systems commonly used in concrete batch plants worldwide.
Global leader in concrete roof tile machinery
PMSA is a leading machine manufacturer offering a complete range of concrete equipment. PMSA was established in 1976 and has supplied full turnkey batching and mixing plants to the concrete roof tile industry for decades, including world-leading concrete roof tile manufacturers like Marley Roofing and BMI.
Over the past 100 years, Abece has built a reputation of good workmanship, excellent engineering with outstanding quality, and customer value. What started as a local forge in 1919, serving the neighboring industry at that time, has now evolved to a global market leader for concrete roof tile equipment providing the best solutions for every need.
“In the mid-1950s – more than 65 years ago – we made our first industrial concrete roof tile machine, extruding 12 tiles per minute. This was our first step towards today’s solutions making and handling tiles up and above speeds of 140 tiles per minute, manufacturing between 50,000 and 60,000 tiles per 8-hour shift. But there is more to it than just speed. With smart and flexible solutions, we provide the most optimized machinery in terms of safety, productivity, energy consumption, user friendliness, and maintenance. Our mission does not stop with successful installation and commissioning but carries on with excellent service and support as long as the equipment is in use. Early in each project, we define the wears and spares needed for your equipment. Abece Detail is our way of securing your production with supply of original spare and wear parts in the highest available quality. Even though our journey began more than one hundred years ago, we look at every day as if it were the start of something new. This is why we are the global leader in concrete roof tile machinery,” Karl Korsfeldt adds.
