Molds Life

Molds that have life? How many cycles can do with a mold?

The life of a mold depends on:     

  • Aggregates, if they are of limestone, granite, ....     
  • Use of vibration in the machine. If vibrate much or less     
  • If the compression is too high or not.

There are customers who come to 150,000 cycles with more than 1 million pieces. The same mold in other cases may reach half.

We can prolong life more molds, but the concrete blocks will be heavier. If the wall thickness increases wear 1 mm, have a 0.5 Kg.

  • The rotation and translation is simultaneous, to reduce the cycle time, achieving reductions between 15 and 20% of the standard finger car.
  • Manufactured aggregates with which you can manufacture slabs, fences and channels of different types and with different techniques for the creation of concrete.
  • The drying of the pieces can become as important as their manufacture, therefore, we believe that it is essential that you have a drying area for the concrete pieces in your factory
  • In this part, we will talk about the importance of humification after drying 24 hours before palletizing.
  • In this part, we offer the reasons why we believe you need a laboratory (forlab) from Rometa in your factory, advising them on what and how to do it
