Block processing equipment

This Tiger technology assures tight height control and consistency across the production pallet. A valve and encoder work in tandem on each side of the compression head to ensure the head remains horizontally level for consistent height product across the pallet. The head cylinders and guide shafts are located outside of the mold change area to provide stable motion and wider spacing of these components assisting in height consistency control. The new head-locking mechanism provides for stable and rigid head positioning during production.

In addition, the manufacturer's latest processing equipment includes TDS (Tiger Distressing System) for fully automated, in-line processing of retaining wall and architectural block. The amount of distressing is variable and applied randomly to all four edges and face of the unit. Also available is the Tiger Rumbler, which provides in-line processing of pavers and slabs with the product remaining on the production pallet. The amount of distressing is variable and applied randomly through a product profile grid and robot.

The Tiger Pagenator processes pavers and slabs with the product removed from the production pallet.  The product is situated to provide random and variable processing of all edges of the product and face, if desired. The semi-auto Profiler offers in-line processing to randomly distress retaining wall and architectural block.
