Managing Director, Hess India.
Hess Group, the German Concrete Machinery Manufacturing Company has been using the slogan 'we put concrete into shape' for the past 60 years entered into India with a big mission. With a worldwide presence and an impressive range of products, Hess group emerged as the true concrete machinery expert and eager to share the knowledge in Indian market. Within short span of two years' time, it succeeded in grabbing major projects with Ahluwalia, Lanvin, Ecologic, JK Lakshmi, A & P Group in India. According to Mr. Manoj, Managing Director, Hess will show the shapes and strength of concrete technology.

Product Attributes

The smallest Hess machine can produce 6000 blocks (20cm/8") in 8 hours. Also have machines which have output of 10,000, 15,000, 23,000, 25,000 and 30,000 blocks. The AAC production capacity varies from 200cbm, 950cbm, 1550cbm and 2000cbm. The outputs of the stationary machines are very versatile. It can produce hollow, solid, Hourdi, kerbs, flag tiles, fly ash bricks and all kinds of interlocking pavers.

Hess India
The company uses the patented vibrating system called as the "Variotronic" vibration system. The vibrating method based on servo/frequency controlled motors. The blocks produced by machines equipped with this patented technology are all uniform in size, shape and density. This high level of precision is the major advantage of this technology. The latest innovation is Variotronic together with oil bath system which will avoid regular greasing and bearing changes for longer periods which are time consuming acts.

All the machines manufactured by Hess Groups are benefitted by the excellent control and conveying systems which can be upgraded at any point of time. Hess machines work with more electric, electronic and software functions and less hydraulics. This helps in fault detection and troubleshooting process. Different types of conveyors are using for each application like belt conveyor, weigh batcher, skip system, bucket conveyor and latch conveyor. All these operations are controlled through a central system with highly integrated synchronization.

With excellent safety features and easy spare parts availability, our machines stand apart in the world of concrete manufacturing equipment. A true testimony to their products is their rapidly expanding production units.

Market

"We put Concrete into shape," In Hess, all our diversification, expansion would be related to Concrete Industry. We are aiming to provide total support to our clients. Our Machines are not only for big players in the market, but we have also worked out a formula for entering into small and medium scale sector, thus, strengthening the future market from level zero!

This decade is dedicated for Infrastructure, Projects by PPPs, and in all wings of the Infrastructure sector is expected to attain its peak, in this phase fast construction has become essential for on time completion of the projects. As we are offering completely automised plants, there are no delay in the projects and we are able to manufacture the products from our machine quickest cycle time of less than 10 sec, Maximum utilization of machine hours is possible, said the company.

Hess India
Now the awareness for quality products is started happening with the end users. The architects and the developers are strongly insisting on the right products which will reduce the wastes, man power and speed up the construction. Most of the projects are time based and environmental points are very important. In such a scenario, the growing market like India needed the right technology. Another important factor is the outlook, where we are very much concerned on the latest fashion trends and colours which started in the construction too. Influential factors are the thermal insulation, sound insulation, fire resistance, faster construction and saving in structural and foundation loads. There is a huge potential for these products as well as opening of new business line for the investors.

All the Hess machines are working with Siemens S7 software together with Bosch Rexroth, Lenze and SEW components. Any troubles in the electrical, electronic and software problem will display in the PLC system itself. All the parts are clearly showing the original supplier and serial number which is easier for the buyer to source from the local market or from Hess. All the Hess machines are using standardized parts and supplies which is easier to do the up- gradation at any point of time.

The company has our manufacturing and service unit in Bangalore since 2011. Sales, service and spares units will be opened in different parts of the country to ensure prompt and on time customer service. Currently, we have multiple installations happening in different parts of the country so our engineers are readily available for servicing on 24x7 bases.

According to the company in HESS, we usually provide in house training to all our employees for a considerable period by deputing them at our plants and facilities. Thus, they understand the day to day operations. Apart from that, the machines are equipped with a modem system which can be connected to a telephone line and able to check problems from our hotline service centre 24x7.
