Compact smart kit to supply concrete for establishment of a new production site in Warwickshire, England
Litecast Ltd, specialist and leading supplier in beam and block flooring are having a purpose-built new manufacturing facility built and within their evaluation they investigated the possibility of supplying concrete for the all foundations and wall panels on site, this then led to acquire one of MCT MCM compact batching plants for their assets. A key fact was the limited space available and the compactness of the MCM plant was invaluable in their decision.
The basic configuration of MCM batching plant model is composed of two 8 x 40 ft containers, for easy installation and transportation. All the mechanical and electrical connections are realized by minimal bolts, pins and plugs, making the installation/dismantling procedure very quick and not requiring specialized staff to carry out the operations.
The software automation, very simple and user friendly, and this is exactly the same of the fixed plant Litecast have purchased for their new facility they will operate in the whole precast factory, this will aid the start up for the new plant making the operations of the smart MCM plant as an ideal training opportunity for the operators to familiarize themselves prior to the new plant being supplied.
The foundation works and casting of precast elements and wall panels for the new site went well and are almost completed in relation to the civil works for the new precast factory.
Stay tuned for the new fixed plant and concrete distribution system development on this project.
