Plaksa Solutions: Revolutionizing Plastering with Italian Mortar Pumps
“Plastering can hinder completion of projects if not done as per the schedule. Our plastering equipment helps contractors to speed ups the works and hence can help to deliver the work in much faster way as compared to current hand applied process, and thereby increase their productivity and profitability. Our equipment can help complete the plastering of a around 1500 sq.ft flat in just 1.5 days. We also assist in upskilling people,” informs Vishal Agarwal, Director – Sales, Plaksa Solutions.
“The machine offers advantages of time and cost savings, is efficient, and gives proven performance. Plus, it works on electricity so there is cost saving on expensive fuel. Pressure of applying will differ from person to person and stroke to stroke when manual labor is used, which can compromise the end-quality - the reason why we see water seepage and dampness. But this machine will give uniform and good quality plastering,” he adds.
“Though the machine technology has been available in global market from many years but due to various constraints but this technology was not prominent in India for various reasons. After pandemic there is a labour availability challenge at sites and pressure to deliver the projects on time is pushing to use the machines for various works. Our people are there on the site during installation and we train the operators for its usage and to make them feel comfortable while using it. We also ensure the upkeeping of machines at site by keeping in touch with our existing customers. We keep a ready stock of spares and consumables, and ensure timely supply so that the machines are running all the time,” says Agarwal.
The company also deals in electromechanical products supply for the heavy lifting loads in different industry, and is a being supplied to some of advanced 3D printing technology also. It also provides equipment for cutting into concrete/asphalt roads, airless spraying of paints and putty, like the KOINE 4 plaster sprayer for dry premixed materials. The products are manufactured at a 69000 sq.m. facility in Italy and the processes follow stringent quality control measures. A R&D division works towards bringing out new products, solutions, and technologies. While Plaksa is currently focused on the Indian subcontinent, it will gradually venture into Nepal and Bangladesh. Says Agarwal, “Considering that we are still relying on traditional plastering methods (even when construction activities have become modern and speedier), we need to create stronger awareness of machine assisted plastering as it will ensure better quality and avoid time lags.”
