Smart city involves extensive construction with concrete as the mainstay. With this, comes the need for batching plant, concrete pumps, concrete transit mixers, concrete recycling plants, self-loading mixers. Additionally, it also becomes crucial to expedite construction with equipment that are safe yet productive like cranes, aerial work platform, etc., which will help the project site personnel to complete the project faster, according to V.G. Sakthikumar, Managing Director, Schwing Stetter Sales and Services Private Limited.
How are your products adding more value to construction?
The concrete truckmixers manufactured by Schwing Stetter India are designed with a beginning of statically and functionally ideal shape of the drum of largest diameter of the largest possible mixing chamber volume. Stiffening cone in the bottom drum is for wear protection to provide corresponding stability. The additional plates on the drum shell on transitional points are particularly subject to wear. The drum wall thickness in these places is thus increased to 9 mm without unnecessary increase of weight. This provides safety for innumerable cubic metres of work output.
The mixing drum and spirals are made of highly wear resistant steel with a high percentage of chromium and nickel. The apparent yielding point and the tensile strength are the two features that prove the capacity of resistance to wear. The well-conceived thickness of the mixing spirals and drum shell round off this as an economically-sound solution.
High speed and constant discharge of material due to varied spacing of the spirals from the bottom of the drum to the discharge piece, the special design of the mixing spirals in the discharge area and the large diameter of the drum outlet offers a huge advantage. A protective grating, folded edge protection at the discharge hopper and an oversized clamping brake on the swivel chute complete the safety measures. All controls (levers and the panel) are available at one place, thereby making the operation user friendly. Schwing Stetter India machineries are available through our strong presence by having five manufacturing facilities, 29 sales and spares centres, four training centres, 10 service centres and having more than 300 service engineers in the length and breadth of India.
