BFS Ringblitz System

Afinitas brings you the Ringblitz  by BFS which is an automated production system for short frame parts, cover plates and manhole grade rings with integrated cast iron frames compliant with DIN 4.034, Parts 1 and 2 and many special products. The Ringblitz offers flexible production in single or dual versions for manufacturing with or without base pallets.

Customizable, Affordability with BFS Ringblitz

The BFS Ringblitz produces many special products efficiently and in the highest quality. With Ringblitz you can customize your equipment, including peripheral devices from small series up to large-scale production. Rest assured you will always find an economically profitable Ringblitz solution.

The production parameters for the fully automated Ringblitz controls are selected at the operator’s touch panel. Product height, for example, can be changed at lightning speed as Ringblitz is an above ground level machine and does not require a pit. Additionally, if built-in parts need to be inserted manually this results in a comfortable working height.

BFS’s matching vibration system ensures optimally compacted high-quality concrete products thanks to the unloading clamp. A product series can be produced completely without base pallets as Ringblitz separates the new concrete ring from the mold while it is still inside the machine. Displaced  stacking at several positions and automated use of a release agent enable the fresh products to be stacked directly on top of each other and cured thus saving space in one 8-hour shift. The Ringblitz Mono can produce over 500 grade rings in a shift, and they can be almost doubled with the Ringblitz Duo system.

Central Vibrating Unit with Drive

Concrete compaction is achieved via a modern central vibrator with hydraulic mold core clamping. The frequency-controlled direct drive is powered by dynamic electric motors with a large RPM range. The BFS-typical vibration cross with sophisticated vibration insulation against the foundation, ensures maximum application of vibration forces to the mold equipment with a minimum of noise.

  • An automatic grease lubrication system is an option that can be added.

Automatic Height Adjustment

The Ringblitz allows fully automatic height adjustment using hydraulic lifting and lowering movement. Adjustments can easily be made using the operator panel.

More features available for the BFS Ringblitz system.

Product Gripper – With Base Pallets

For the manufacturing cycle with base pallets and with manual production handling.


Product Gripper- Without Base Pallets

For manufacturing cycles without base pallets.

BFS Fasttrac Handling System

The BFS Fasttrac system efficiently handles the feeding and returning of base pallets from the storage area to the machine, installation of seals on base ballets, as well as application of release agent.

Release Agent Dosing Unit

A release agent blowing unit can be mounted on the Fasttrac product handling device. This pneumatic blowing unit is available as an oil or sand blowing system.
