Elematic, a world-leading manufacturer of precast concrete plants and production lines, launches a new fully-automated precast concrete wall production line, the Elematic Edge. The new production line offers high factory capacity, top-rate precast product quality and reduced operating costs through state-of-the-art automation technologies, optimized production plan, carefully-designed production process and individually tailored solutions.
The new fully-automated Elematic Edge wall line optimizes the whole precast wall production from building design all the way to the construction site. The line features advanced software, modern table circulation and state-of-the-art production machinery, and its automated functions cover planning, monitoring and controlling the production process.
The new Elematic solution offers clear benefits: Production optimization and material management are straightforward as materials are directly synchronized with product design information and the manufacturing execution system shows the number of products in process at all times. Line operations are monitored and controlled from one central location, with real-time production data continuously available for any possible process adjustment needs. The system also shows the location of the finished products so no time is wasted for needless tracking.
One responsible supplier
The new solution covers all parts of a precast wall production line. In addition to the advanced, high tech systems and products such as automatic Comcaster and EliPlan, Elematic’s unique enterprise resource planning software for precast factories, the Elematic product range is now expanded with the automatic shuttering station Elematic E9.
“The new station ensures a fast and accurate shuttering process as it provides fully-automated control over various shuttering functions such as shuttering placement, demolding of side forms and table cleaning, oiling and plotting,” says Jarkko Salmensivu, Automation & Software Product Manager at Elematic. “The shuttering station utilizes Sommer robot technology. We want to offer our customers the most advanced precast wall production system on the market, with full support and expertise from an experienced partner who carries responsibility for the whole delivery,” says Salmensivu.
The new Elematic Edge Wall automation can be integrated with CAD and BIM software. Manufacturing details and deliveries can be tracked at the construction site by using an intuitive 3D view of the building.
The Elematic Edge Wall is designed for the production of sandwich panels, cladding panels, solid panels and solid slabs.
