 PipePlus Machine Key Advantages

PipePlus concrete pipe machine simple operation

Simple Operation and Maintenance

Afinitas understands the need for efficiency in your operations. For this reason, we use off-the-shelf components wherever possible to make the PipePlusPlus easy to run and maintain. Here’s how it works:

  • A concrete distributor chute automatically adjusts to the form size in the fill station and begins to feed concrete into the form.
  • The feed rates and vibration settings are stored in the PLC for each product type (manual control also available).
  • After the tongue former is placed in the filled form set, the PipePlusPlus pressheading cycle automatically commences.
  • The presshead presses the tongue former to form the spigot, trowels the joint surface, and returns to the home position for the next pipe.
  • For added flexibility, concrete pipes can be offborne from the PipePlusPlus machine with an automatic or conventional overhead crane.
PipePlus machine is productive, versatile, flexible

High Productivity, Flexibility and Versatility

The PipePlus three–station turntable design collapses the filling, pressheading, and stripping steps to fast-track the production cycle and increase output. In addition to being efficient, the turntable allows the simultaneous production of three different pipe sizes and shapes. PipePlus can manufacture arch, round, elliptical and jacking pipe, as well as a full range of manhole products and catch basins.
PipePlus Multiforms

Expanded Output with PipePlus Multiforms

HawkeyePedershaab’s patented multiform modules allow up to eight pipes to be produced in a single form. The result  is that depending on the machine model and product diameter, the PipePlus can manufacture up to 100 pipes/hr with multiforms. This superior output has made PipePlus a top choice among producers around the world.
PipePlus pins easily pull out for quick form changeover

Quick Form Changeover

Thanks to the machine’s speedy, 10-minute form changeover, PipePlus boasts exceptional short-run capability. In effect, all you have to do is pull a pair of pins and disconnect the vibrators. Next, simply remove the form and enter a new one into production. That’s it.

High Concrete Product Quality 

With the PipePlus machine you have variable feed rates and vibration settings specific to each product type to ensure a quality product no matter what is being made. In addition, the PipePlus pressheading system utilizes stay-in-place headers for smooth, dimensionally accurate spigots every time.

PipePlus Compact makes upgrades simple
