G&J INDUSTRIES SCALE THE PRODUCTION CAPACITY FOR 60 CM WIDE HOLLOW CORE SLABS
G&J normally produces with Slipformers but has now chosen to expand their range of machines with the Extruder X-Liner from Echo Precast Engineering and, by this way, increase the production of the 60 cm wide slabs.
The X-Liner modules can produce 160- and 180-mm height to make 2 slabs of 60 cm (with 4 cores) simultaneously. Their unique combination screws and a center mold piece to split the slabs guarantees excellent compaction and quality on 60 cm wide slabs. The 60 cm wide hollow core slabs are very popular for residential construction in Belgium, but they can also be perfectly used in industrial constructions, schools, etc. G&J ordered a X-Liner with a versatile nozzle unit to produce as well 9 core slabs of 160 x 1200 mm and 180 x 1200 mm.
"The extruder X-Liner is very good and quick. We like that it does not make noise, and nobody is needed to drive the machine. The machine can self-drive, so we need only one person to bring the concrete to the casting machine.“
