Afinitas offers this modular BFS Universal system as an ideal choice for rapidly growing precast concrete markets, as it can be expanded gradually, whenever necessary. Consequently, production can begin with a modest investment and, as demands increase, BFS equipment can be added to build a highly productive plant. Even in its most basic configuration, the BFS Universal guarantees the highest levels of concrete product quality.
The BFS Universal machine is ideally suited to produce:
|BFS Universal||Riser Products||Cone Products||Square Products|
|Product Diameters||800-1500mm (60")||800-1200mm (50")||up to 1000x1000mm (40"x40")|
|Product Lengths||up to 1300mm (50")|
BFS Universal Machine Key Advantages
BFS Universal is Easy to Maintain
The BFS Universal is engineered to be almost maintenance-free. Universal is designed with a sturdy, rigid construction that consists of the following parts:
- Concrete Feeding Unit
- Mold equipment and Accessories
- Hydraulic Unit
- Electric Control System
- Pressing Arm
The BFS Universal’s concrete feeding unit operates using a conveyor belt with a concrete holding hopper. The unit has a base frame for mounting on the floor with a ball bearing. In addition, the feeding unit swivels manually using a conveyor belt drive that is equipped with an electronic control system.
Hydraulic Press Arm
The BFS Universal’s main frame has a mounted press arm, with a hydraulically powered swivel motion. Universal uses a mounted spigot former presshead, with a mounted press turning gear for the spigot forming ring, and a presshead mounting bracket.
Robust Mold Equipment
The BFS Universal system features an inner mold and outer mold with accessories and a lifting beam that is useful for concrete product handling. The Universal is designed with a vibrating system with central vibrators that are mounted in the mold core. A frequency converter can be added as an option.
BFS Universal Electric Controls
The Universal’s electric control system for the manual control of the press arm is designed for 230/400 V, 50 Hz.
