Elematic EDGE system automates wall production, wire to wire

46 BIMi 400

EDGE Wall automation can be integrated with CAD and BIM software. Manufacturing details and deliveries can be tracked at the construction site by using an intuitive 3D view of the building. The EDGE manufacturing execution system helps optimize the use of plant capacity, monitoring the production status and controlling the operations from one centralized location. Automatic table nesting supports production plan creation through an intuitive user interface and maximizes casting surface space usage.

EDGE Wall automation can be integrated with CAD and BIM software. Manufacturing details and deliveries can be tracked at the construction site by using an intuitive 3D view of the building. The EDGE manufacturing execution system helps optimize the use of plant capacity, monitoring the production status and controlling the operations from one centralized location. Automatic table nesting supports production plan creation through an intuitive user interface and maximizes casting surface space usage.

A fully-automated precast concrete wall production line, the EDGE offers high factory capacity, quality output and reduced operating costs through advanced technologies, optimized fabrication plan, carefully designed processes, and individually tailored solutions.

Equipped with modern table circulation and companion machinery, Elematic system optimizes production of key precast wall types—sandwich, cladding or solid panels, along with monolithic slabs—from building design through construction site delivery. Automated functions cover planning, monitoring, and production process control.

Product engineers cite these benefits: Casting optimization and management are straightforward as materials are directly synchronized with product design information, and a manufacturing execution system shows the number of products in process at all times. Line operations are monitored and controlled from one central location, with real-time production data continuously available for any process adjustment needs. The system also shows finished product location, minimizing time spent tracking inventory.

The new solution covers all parts of a precast wall production line. In addition to the advanced systems and products such as ELiPLAN and Comcast, the product range is now expanded with the automatic shuttering station, Elematic E9. It ensures fast and accurate shuttering process by providing fully-automated control over such functions as placement, side form demolding, table cleaning, oiling, and plotting.

ELiPLAN, Elematic’s enterprise resource planning specifically designed for precast operations, provides support for operative production planning throughout sales, material management, casting, warehouse management, transportation, and machinery maintenance. Comcaster is E9’s precisely controlled dosing device, easing production of smooth finished plank cast with different layer heights.

“The shuttering station utilizes Sommer robot technology. We want to offer our customers the most advanced precast wall production system on the market, with full support and expertise from an experienced partner who carries responsibility for the whole delivery,” affirms Elematic Automation & Software Product Manager Jarkko Salmensivu. — Elematic Inc., Brookfield, Wis., 262/798-9777; www.elematic-inc.comwww.elematic.com
