Atlantic - system for highly efficient production of premium-quality concrete manholes and pipes
The BFS Atlantic system offers highly efficient production of high-quality concrete manholes and pipes.
Thanks to extremely short cycle times (about 45 seconds!), the two carriage-system provides high productivity in direct de-molding. In addition, the modular system for single (Atlantic Mono) or double (Atlantic Duo) production requires little space and can be tailored to the specific requirements of a plant.
Depending on the machine model, a typical Atlantic unit offers an annual production capacity of up to 70,000 tons of product.
Atlantic comes in 2 models:
◎ Atlantic 1500 (DN 300 up to 1500 mm, product h: 100 – 2500 mm, length: up to 2500 mm)
◎ Atlantic 2000 (DN 300 up to 2000 mm, product h: 100 – 2500 mm, length: up to 2500 mm)
Device features and benefits of use:
◎ Efficient production of manhole risers and pipes of the highest quality and performance with diameters from DN 300 mm to DN 2000 mm
◎ Production of manhole risers or cones equipped with manhole steps (manhole step elements can be vibrated during production)
◎ Proven anchor insertion systems that allow transport anchors (hooks, barrels) to be inserted and concreted semi- or fully automatically
◎ Possible reverse molding function - BFS Atlantic's ROTO unit makes it possible to add an automatic mold turning function to the system, which works with manhole bases and other components
◎ Automatic reinforcement insertion systems: for inserting reinforcement rings or cages into manufactured concrete pipes and manhole elements; in addition, short changeover times guarantee high production efficiency
◎ Automated, numerically controlled Atlantic PUMA base pallets handling system (feeding and returning of base pallets from stock to machine and application of release agent, efficient and fast cleaning)
◎ Automated crane robot BFS Robotrac to simplify the transportation of fresh products and the collection of finished concrete products
◎ Strong compaction through the use of a frequency-controlled center vibrator and hydraulic clamping of the mold core
◎ Machine can be operated by one person
◎ Low noise emission (low noise level during the production process - subsurface technology)
◎ Software-controlled system with two carriages allowing different ways of de-molding
◎ Safe and convenient working height from floor level in terms of operation
◎ Small foundation depth..
