Similar to Prima, the wet cast automation solution, the Souveraen is computer assisted in the entire production cycle. The technol- ogy provides the optimal solution to create variable pipe sizes with consistent quality. The main drive system is powered by fre- quency controlled electric motors together with a spur gear transmission, which results in exact speeds and torque for optimal com- paction results. The system also delivers energy cost savings to plant owners and minimizes noise. Its mix feeding technology calculates the amount of concrete needed for production through the control system and feeds precise material quantities at target rates to the production process. The Souver- aen's compaction system uses a BFS-patented tool, and its roller-head technology guaran- tees no uncompacted areas. The Souveraen creates intelligent products, HawkeyePedershaab officials note. Reinforced and non-reinforced concrete pipes are produced with fully automated installation of lifting and transport anchors. Base ring pallets and reinforcement cages are automatically inserted. Base ring pallets are automati- cally cleaned, oiled, stored and prepared for production by the BFS-Puma. Users seeking full automation can deploy the BFS-open-floor-system Robotrac or auto- matic moving-floor-system Floortrac. Automation solutions improve plant productivity; increase safety; track and record production information to spot bottlenecks; and, enable plant managers to better plan for output needs—all while reducing labor demands. — HawkeyePed- ershaab Concrete Technologies, Mediapolis, Iowa, 319/394-3197; HawkeyePedershaab has tailored the Prima production management system to impart assembly line efficiency in wet cast operations. *prices subject to change Complete Rugged 22' Wide Screed $ 1,599 * +shipping Visit our website to see videos & our complete product line. 888-329-6039 5032 College Avenue-Suite B Quincy, IL 62305 Now Available!
