Monitoring curing times is a particularly complex and expensive step in the process of manufacturing concrete products. Failure to establish the strength development of precast concrete elements may lead to damage or production faults. The manufacturer may also have to schedule long buffer periods.
Maturix is a ground-breaking tool that uses wireless sensors to measure the curing time and strength development within the concrete product. Measured values are directly transmitted into the cloud, and results are directly available to the user. Maturix is easy to use and can be implemented completely within only a few hours. This flexible solution is suitable for use both at the precast plant and on the construction site. The integrated 4.0 sensors feature a replaceable external cable that is embedded in the wet concrete of the element and subsequently used for a complete measuring cycle. However, real-time monitoring costs remain low because the sensor can be reused many times.
1 million measurements per day
A Danish precast producer has been using Maturix since the beginning of 2017 for its manufacture of prestressed precast floor slabs, prestressed girders, and sandwich wall panels. The 4.0 sensors are mounted in all production areas; results are displayed on large 50’’ monitors located in each production department.
According to the company, Sensohive sensors perform over 1 million measurements and collect more than 200,000 customer data items per day.
