The concrete distributor is a bridge crane used for the distribution of concrete to the casting machines. In special cases the Concrete Distributor can be utilised for additional functions other than concrete transport depending on a feasibility study of the plant layout.
There are various models of concrete distributor:
Half gantry concrete distributor:
The concrete distributor travels with one leg on the ground on a rail and the other on a rail mounted on the columns of the factory.
Overhead Concrete distributor:
The concrete distributor travels on overhead rails mounted on the columns of the factory.
On request the concrete distributor can be equipped with:
- A system to lift the Bucket or a production machine
- Power supply for the casting machine. In this case the casting machine does not need to be fitted with a cable reel.
- Hoists for the concrete bucket
- A water tank to supply water to the casting machine for production if necessary.
The concrete distributor can be customized or designed to fit complex plant layouts or existing factories requiring particular features.
