Page 50 of 61 June 2018 • 47 INNOVATIONS EQUIPMENT & PRODUCTS Masa USA arrived at the Icon Expo 2018 – Machinery & Equipment Show in Indianapolis with a new filling box for its XL-Series concrete block and paver machines. The box minimizes material being pulled out of the very top of the product surface; yields a smooth, uniform top surface in finished units; prevents overfilling of the mold; and, produces more distinguished and contrasting colors in multicolored production runs. It is equipped with hydraulic driven smoothening roller and bottom slide, plus pneumatic scraper. — Masa USA, Green Bay, Wis., 920/497-0390; MASA FACE MIX FILLING BOX A key player in cast-in-place concrete construction, Peri Formwork Sys- tems has added to its North American market offerings a namesake unit masonry production pallet. Peri Pave boards are available in sizes to 1,500 x 3,600 mm and 24- to 53-cm thicknesses, and weigh about 50 percent and 25 percent, respectively, of plastic or steel pallets of comparable load-bearing capacity. They feature multiplex cores produced through cross-bonding of premium birch veneers, and exhibit high bending stiff- ness and low deflection in the face of constant compaction stresses. Peri Pave boards also have a joint-free surface with polypropylene coating, developed especially for molding uniform concrete block and pavers, and offering high impact and abrasion resistance. Their low net weight leads to energy savings during the transportation through the machine cycle. Molding cycle times can be reduced because of vibration transmission and elimination of the need for withdrawal plates. — Peri Formwork Systems Inc., Elkridge, Md., 443/718-7382; Peri mills block and paver production pallets
