Tumbler and Split process
Both treatment are applied when piece is dry, Post-packing. Result is a piece seeming a natural stone.
Split process is cutting piece in half obtaining two pieces with one finishing face. This could be two sides if it is requested.
Tumbler process is turning and hitting between pieces obtaining a finishing more natural (older aspect) because it is all faces.
If pieces were produced with Color-Mix, the result will be closer to natural stone.

Tumbler pieces samples:
Split and Tumbler in parallel:
Shot blasting machine. Process with dry pieces after cubing.
Projecting a large number of small steel balls again the paver to show stones.
Shoot Blasting pieces samples:
Process with wet pieces before arriving to curing area.
Pressurized water on wet pieces to show stones. Similar surface than shoot blasting.
Lower investment but production cycle longer. Water is cleaning and recovering.
Additional machine to the press for block making machines ROMETA 2010-2030-2050 o 4050, for the manufacture of concrete blocks.
We manufacture our brand of moulds for block making machines after 30 years of experience, to produce blocks, kerbstones, pavers, ceiling blocks, special pieces or customers' own designs.
When was TOFORM born? or Our mould brand history
ROMETA SA, manufacturer of machinery to produce concrete pieces since 1956, is consolidated in his activity of moulds creating our brand TOFORM, with the acquisition of "MOLDES y LAPEADOS S.L", who contributes with his expertise of more than 30 years on the sector.
TOFORM are moulds for all models and machinery brands that can produce hollow blocks, solid blocks kerbstones, pavers, ceiling blocks, special pieces or specific customer's own design:.
- Mono-bloc moulds
- Removable moulds
- Hydraulic moulds
- Moulds with mechanised and removable dividing plates.
- Moulds with removable cavities
- Spare parts of moulds, interchangeable pieces
Performance and quality
We are using steel alloys and the most suitable treatments to reduce wear and increase the number of mould cycles.
We manufacture the following moulds:
- Steel with wear resistance of 500 HB (Brinells)
- Treatment with wear resistance of 900 Vickers
- High performances of wear 64-66 HRC (Rockwell C)
- Heat treatment
- Mechanized division for easy demoulding
Moulds designed for the production of concrete pieces, saving time of machine setting and improving filling, compacting and remoulding.
Toform uses CNC-controlled machinery to offer accuracy of all moulds form our moderns facilities located in the village Sant Miquel de Balenyà, BARCELONA, Spain..
Toform is formed by a people team with a wide experience to provide the best advice to the customer.
Toform exports all over the world and finds the right solution for our customer needs.
Innovation and custom projects
Development of mould Project with CAD-CAM and 3D technologie according to customer requests.
Design of custom moulds, prototype and tests in block making machine to evaluate their technical feasibility.
We advise on aggregates, vibration cycle, pieces geometry for the best operation and life of mould, from our experience as manufacturer of block making machines ROMETA.
