Ramesh Jayaram, Managing Director
At Excon, we will be launching a new 3-Station Wet Press for manufacturing heavy-duty kerb stones, slabs, flag stones, dished water channels, and drain covers.
We have always been in the forefront of introducing new technologies and adding new machines to our product lines. We will now be introducing the new 3-Station Wet Press under our economy range. It is especially suited for manufacturers who need products of maximum 600 x 600mm size. Our heavy-duty wet press with a vacuum de-watering system is a very compact model, and the ﬁrst of its kind in the industry. Also on display will be our Vibro Press model BLOCKSTAR BS2 and our Planetary Mixer PM500.
We have completely automated our Concrete Block Manufacturing Line.
Over the years we have upgraded our semi-automated manufacturing lines to international quality standards for serving small and medium manufacturers more efficiently.
We have also developed a completely automated Concrete Block manufacturing line. It comprises of handling systems like Elevator, Lowerator, Finger Car, Cuber, and related systems. This will meet the increasing demand in all kinds of construction projects.
The latest trend in precast concrete products include Precast Drains for Urban Roads, Highways, and Road Dividers. Precast Roof Slabs and Walls are now being increasingly preferred in spite of challenges faced by producers on user awareness and support, along with the manufacturing infrastructure, and lack of trained installers and contractors.
Utilisation of Precast Concrete products is increasing rapidly, and demand has increased exponentially; but the biggest challenge is product quality and most importantly standardization.
Without proper standards being set and implemented across all the agencies, the idea of Precast Concrete products will never mature to the level reached by developed countries. Every agency develops and sets its own standards, mostly based on customer requirements, which are not fully scientiﬁcally understood or implemented. This leads to wrong product choices and failure to meet the objectives.
The need of the hour is for the concerned agencies to set proper standards for each and every product and its variants, and provide complete details and information for everyone to understand and adhere to, without making any compromises.
