Apollo Infratech believes that change is the need of the time and so it has joined hands with world’s leading vertical cast pipe machine manufacturer HawkeyePedershaab Concrete Technologies Worldwide and formed a company named Apollo Hawkeye Pedershaab concrete Technologies Pvt. Ltd. This company will be manufacturing concrete pipe manufacturing machines of international standards. These concrete pipe manufacturing machines are also known as RCC pipe manufacturing machines (Reinforced Concrete Cement Pipe manufacturing machines). This joint venture of Apollo Infratech has enabled the company to provide international standard machineries in Indian market at a very competitive rate. In this way, the company has also contributed to the economic growth of the country in infrastructure development.
CAP 150 – Vertical Cast Concrete Pipe Machine
This concrete pipe making machine can enable versatile production of pipe, culverts and complete manhole systems of up to 1500 mm (60”) in diameter for circular units and up to 1500 X 1500 mm (60” X 60”) for square units. This machine will be made in India by Apollo Infratech under the license from HawkeyePedershaab and will be launched in April 2012. This vertical cast concrete pipe machine is manually operated machine and can manufacture high quality concrete pipe, box culverts and complete manhole systems which include reinforced and non-reinforced pipe, circular and non-circular pipe with “bell” or in-wall joint, lined pipe, jacking pipe, box culverts, manhole risers, cones, base sections and cover slabs.
Various optional features can be installed in this concrete pipe machine in order to improve production and handle the machine easily, which are Swivel automation for swivel arm and concrete feeder, including pendant switch for operation of concrete feeder, vibrator and swivel arm, stationery control panel, hydraulic pressing/rocking function, R4 headers, top ring system, lifting hole equipment, reinforcement centering equipment, pneumatic equipment for casting of lined pipe, elevating system, cooling system for the vibrator, double and triple casting stations, hydraulic vibrator and frequency controlled vibrator speed.
This concrete pipe making machine is versatile which enables table vibration or central core vibration and has Falcon control. It is designed with the state-of-the-art components making it suitable for all types of concrete pipes of different shapes and sizes. The capacity of this machine depends on the kind of concrete pipe being produced, the material used and the local conditions. With the help of this machine all concrete pipes and manhole systems are manufactured with an inner lining of PVC, PE or GRP with special mold attachments. This versatile concrete pipe manufacturing plant comes with a special feature of manufacturing more than one pipe diameter per production day due to its build in system for quick mold changes down to 15-30 minutes. This machine is manually operated by 1-2 workers which also depend on the specific products being manufactured, layout of the machine and selected optional features.
So, now by launching this versatile concrete pipe making machine, Apollo Infratech is going to bring a new revolution in concrete pipe manufacturing industry.
