Dear Ladies and Gentleman and a warm welcome from Bangkok to our Masa Webinar for today Which is organized via the IMPACT Exhibition Team.  Today I will have the pleasure of introducing the Masa Group to you. Our history the  when the manufacturing process when it comes   to aerated concrete and highly compacted  concrete products and also how to produce   multi-colored concrete products. My name is Florian  Bamberger and I will be your speaker of today.   Before diving into the history of the Masa Group and our technical slides kindly allow me to introduce myself to you. At this point briefly, I have more than 16 years of experience   in the machinery business and I'm based in  Southeast Asia since 2006. So I joined MASA  

in 2019 and we opened a new representative  office in Bangkok at the beginning of 2020. So during that webinar firstly I'd like to provide  you a short overview about the MASA Group itself.   Our history and global setup followed by an overview of our product portfolio and and introduce of our product portfolio and and introduce of our regional partner! The technical part of our webinar will be basically   divided in two parts. Firstly we will have a  closer look at our AAC technology how that product  

can contribute to a more sustainable future and  secondly we will take a closer look at our highly   compacted concrete products and how to produce  a multi-colored concrete product in that regard.   So here you can see our founder who founded  the MASA company back in 1905 basically   we have more than 100 years of experience in  the field so this is the early beginnings of   MASA. Here you can see the first block making  machines produced at the beginning of 1905. So here you can see the first  expansion phase from the MASA   basically this where the first phase when the  MASA machine factory on the left hand side   merged to the MASA machinery company  on the right hand side that was in 1930.  

So indeed that is where we are now so where we are  located our headquarters is located in Andernach   Germany basically between Cologne and Frankfurt  the development design and production of our   heavy compacted concrete block machines takes 100 percent placed there so it's a 100 percent German   product. So during October 1993 the MASA move  to our new and actual location at the Masa-Street in Andernach. Our headquarters  in Andernach has approximately 300 employees who are   manufacturing forging and constantly developing  the best concrete block machines in the market.

So in 1999 MASA took over the former Henke machinery company in Porta Westfalica, which can be seen in that picture so in Porta Westfalica also approximately 300  experts are focusing their full potential to   the manufacturing developing and  constantly improving our AAC technology. So this illustration provides you an overview  about our subsidiaries and the global setup MASA   does have whereas our representative office  in bangkok was delayed the latest expansion. So this is a brief overview concerning our  worldwide references our line installations.   basically numbers as you can see the main market  for us is Europe followed by USA and then Asia. So now before we dive deep into our technical  solutions and the philosophy from MASA when it comes to AAC and heavy concrete  block production. We'd like to provide you  

an overview of our product portfolio as  well as introducing our regional partner. So illustrated here is the dedicated final  products of our machinery technology based   on our two main manufacturing locations in Germany.  So basically everything what is related to  autoclave hardening like AAC or sand lime brick   production is located in Porta Westfalica. You can  see that on the slide here on the left hand side   and our complete technology portfolio for our  highly compacted concrete blocks is located in   our headquarters Andernach, you can see that here on the right hand side of the of the illustration. This is an example layout for AAC production  plant a layout as the turnkey solution.   This is also an example layout for  a heavy concrete block production   as a turnkey solution provided by MASA.

So now it is my utmost pleasure in introducing  our regional partner the Rothenburg Group.   So our partner is not only assisting us for  customer acquisition and services in the region   but also takes over a substantial part of our  scope of supply for our turnkey solutions that   allows us basically to offer you a more economical  package Miss Niramol who is the Coordination   Manager of the Rothenberg Group will now provide  you an overview of their products and services. Sawasdee ka, I'm Niramol Kusunchai. I'm a representative from Rothenburg Company  Limited in Thailand. Our company is the turnkey   expert for the building material factories such  as fiber cement, concrete proofing tiles, cement tile   factory, dry mortar Plant and also the crushing line  and we also can provide you the civil work   machine engineering fabrication installation and  also the test run throughout the line as well   okay we also can work like your partner like a  one-stop solution with our 20 years of experience.

So now we come to the first part of our  webinar the AAC block and panel production   and I would like to thank Miss Niramol very  much for the introduction of the Rothenburg Group. So AAC has been developed in 1945 and is basically  a chemical reaction of the required raw materials   in a combination. In general twenty percent of the  material consists of solids and the rest of  eighty percent is consisting of air. Therefore  AAC is a very lightweight and heat and sound   insulation building material. As well it provides  a superior protection against fire in a class a1.

Here we can see the raw material  requirements for the AAC production   the main ingredient therefore is natural sand  with a high silica content which counts which   need to be above 75 percent which counts  for 50 percent of the raw material requirements   the sand needs to come in a uniform grain size  with a maximum of two millimeter and a d90   distribution of 1.5 millimeter for which reason we  do have installed steel ball mills in our machines   burned lime provides the necessary calcium oxide  and the co2 so the burned lime need to be burned   at around 1000 degrees for the best reaction time  cement in general any type of cement can be used   whereas cement of Portland cement 42.5 or 52.5 is  recommended. Gypsum or Anhydrite is also needed for   the process in order to adjust the softness of the  cake. Finally water is the low content of sulphate   and chloride has to be used the ph value  of the water should not be too alkaline   so very interesting point for the AAC production  is that it is possible to subsidize the sand   completely by fly ash if the silica content is  above 50 percent the ash have a high quality and   overall a constant quality. Plus what's also quite  interesting is the burned lime can be subsidized   either way completely or to a certain  extent with alternative materials   who provide a high calcium oxide content and  the reaction time t60 of at least two minutes. In those pictures we can see aac products  of one of our clients who is using fly ash   as the main ingredient By using Fly Ash.  Those products become highly sustainable  

basically in the sense of a  circular economy principle.  The only difference between the sand based and fly ash-based products is the colored   as illustrated here in those pictures you can see  the difference in the center picture quite nicely   blocks and panels are also possible to be  produced with the right quality of the fly ash   to anthracite coal fly ash is the most common  and the most preferred source therefore so now let's have a deep look  at the layout of our machines.   So basically at number one you can see  the Sand processing wet ball mill   at number two you can see here the dosing and  mixing tower number three this is the fermentation   area number four is the transport  to the cutting line and the removal of the mold   number five is the reassembly and the oiling  of the of the casting model number six is the   cutting line itself number seven you can see here  the transport plant and the tilting tables whereas   the tilting tables are optional feature so we  will discuss that later in our following slide   transport platform and the waiting area  in front of the autoclave is number eight   number nine is the autoclave and the steam boiler basically the hardening itself   number ten is a Re-tilting table as said this  is optional feature after the hardening and   the hardening carrier circulation point 11 is  the separating machine of the blocks which is   not needed if the separation is done in the  green stage so we will look at that in a later   slide number 12 is the block transfer device  and number 13 is basically the packaging line so here you can see a ball mill in operation  to get the feeling of the size of that kind   of equipment A Special Sand slurry pump  will pump the fine sand and water mix   after the grinding in the wet ball mill to  the slurry silo oversized particles and and   wear out steel balls will be automatically  discharged as illustrated here in the picture so here you can see a Sand slurry  including the planetary stirrer to avoid sand segmentation in the silo  so this the stirrer basically is a MASA   know-how part the rest of the silo could  be delivered by our partner Rothenburg here you can see a mixing tower concept from  MASA which is divided in ground first second   and third floor so the third level is the hot and  cold water as well as the aluminium dispersion   located the second level is the Weighing and the  dosing equipment and the first level is basically   where the mixing is located underneath the tower  the continuously filling of the mould takes place particularly interesting for the process is  that after each mold filling cycle we flashed   a complete system with one thousand liters  of water to make sure it's completely clean   for the next preparation of the mix so the water  will be collected laid down in a collection tank   for reuse on the right hand side here you can  see an example of our visualization concept   and below that the example for  a possible recipe of AAC product so here you can see a mixing tower in live  operation a real-time example of one of   our clients nicely visible here is the mixing  and the fitting screws from the outside silos so here we can see the fermentation or the rising  area for each mold containing the aac raw mix the   fermentation takes depending on the raw materials  two to four hours to the necessary cakes strength   and volume for the cutting will be reached the  chemical reaction of the lime water and aluminium   will produce hydrogen which generates the aerated  structure and therefore is responsible for the   volume expansion you can see here in that example  how the hydrogen is leaving the cake the necessary   cement and gypsum will provide  the necessary tenacity for further processing once the fermentation is finished we enter the  green cake stage for further processing the mold   manipulator will transport the mold with the  cake to the cutting line turn it 90 degrees   connect the side plate to a cutting cut roller  and release the green cake the molds are slightly   conical designed for easy release of the  cakes after the green cake has been released   each mold will be automatically reassembled  with a side plate and automatically lubricated   and put back in recirculation so here we can see  an example for a lubricating station where we just   are lubricating a mold once the lubrication is  finished the mold will be taken back in operation now we come to a very interesting point of  our aac technology the cutting line itself   so the cutting line consists of several stations  above special cutting trench to collect the   cutting waste the cutting will be done with  highly precise oscillating cutting wires so   basically the cutting stations consist of firstly  cake shaping and the profiling station secondly   cake lengths or horizontal cutting for the block  thickness thirdly cake cross or vertical cutting   for the block height and optionally profiling knifes for tongues and grooves are available so here you can see the first and the second  station the shaping profiling of the cake   as well as the length and horizontal cutting  to reach the nest the desired block thickness optically profiling knives as already said  and grooving would be available at that point   a highly accurate railing system is responsible  for the high end tolerances of the cutting line   itself nicely visible in that picture is the  cutting trench which collects the waste by a   high volume water circulation underneath and  collects it in an intermediate mixing tank   so once the necessary density of the waste  in the tank has been reached it will be   automatically re-pumped to the slurry silos for  reuse. so here we can see the last cutting station  

with the following steps so obviously we will see  now the vertical cutting to create the required   block height the side layers or the side plates  of the card will be removed and fall into the   trench for collection and the top layer will  be vacuum lifted and dropped into the trench   once the cake has left the station  so nicely visible here is also   the oscillating of the wires now we  can see the cutting of the side plate and here is the vacuum lifting from the top layer which will be dropped later on down in the trench so here we can see a horizontal hardening process  which requires the integration of a tilting and   re-tilting table but it would offer further  process possibilities on the raw material side so here we can see a vertical  hardening process which is a   more economical solution in  terms of initial investment so the horizontal hardening process  basically requires the integration of a   tilting and retelling table to turn the  green cake 90 degrees before hardening   and return it 90 degrees after the hardening  process therefore the initial investment   is a bit higher but it would provide a  wider bandwidth of materials to be used so here we can see a re-tilting table after the  hardening process to turn the white cake back   to vertical position the horizontal hardening of  the cake also provides the advantage to remove the   bottom layer in the green stage and therefore  no additional cracking or crushing is required so basically the process advantage  for the horizontal hardening   is related to the lower gravitative force  between the blocks therefore a wider range   of materials can be used since the block to block  adhesion during the hardening process is reduced   this is especially interesting for  the use of alternative materials   with the high calcium oxide content  and the reaction time above two minutes another optional feature once we talk about  horizontal are processing would be the   green separation a table the green separation  allows the separation of the blocks or panels   after cutting but before the hardening and  therefore we reduce the adhesion effect in   the autoclave or the hardening to zero. so this  is the working principle of the green separator   where basically a holding pin clamp will  fix the product and the movable table   with movable elements will separate  the product to the predefined gap so basically the difference between the green  separation and the white separation is the green   separation happens before the hardening the  white separation happens after the hardening   particular interesting is the green separation  for the production of very thin products   so once we talk about panels below 75 millimeters  or blocks below 70 millimeter width the green   table provides particularly high advantages in  terms of cracking or breaking after the hardening   also the wristband are also the  widest bandwidth of raw materials is   guaranteed since we separate the product before  the hardening and sticking is reduced to zero here we can see the loading of an autoclave  which in most cases is 39 meter long and has   a diameter of 2.9 meter basically this depends  on the mold size which is used in the process so here we can see the unloading process of  an autoclave after the hardening is complete nicely visible here is also the heat which  comes from the block after the hardening process   here we can see an example installation of  a MASA aac machine with 4 autoclaves so   basically this plant could produce up  to 850 cubic meters a day aac products so now we come to a very interesting point the  ipc control of the autoclave itself the hardening   process so once the autoclave is loaded the  following steps will take place the vessel will be   vacuumed between 0.3 to 0.7 bar within  30 to 40 minutes to not damage the soft products   the stream pressure will slowly be increased by  saturated steam up to 12 bar that takes place   within 120 to 150 minutes the hardening  process is itself is predefined by a time   between three to six hours depending on the raw  materials at 190 degrees and 12 bar pressure   so once the hardening time has has been reached  the controller will slowly release the pressure   of the saturated steam again in a predefined  time between 120 to 150 minutes to not damage   the products the generated condensate during  that process can also completely be reused   so you can see here on the picture on the  graph basically a time diagram as it is shown   in our visualization system to control  the autoclave and the hardening process here you can see a steam  generator a boiler for steam   usually here in the region natural  gas as a fuel source is recommended so this is the mechanical separator after the  hardening process which is also called the cracker   of course this system is not required if the  products are separated in the green stage so the finished product will be taken by the  MASA transfer device which you can see here   and will be connect to a hardening  car and processed further to the packaging area so in the packaging area completely automatic  centering of the blocks on wooden pallets   takes place also automatically strapping  units would be available for steel-based   or polymer-based uh strapping tapes  additional another option would be to   pack the blocks with stretch film pe-based  stretch film or pe-based shrink hoods so the finished product in that  example here is packed with a pe   shrink hood and is conveyed for  a pickup outside of the factory   as seen the forklift truck here is picking  it up and bringing it to the storage area so here we can see a typical storage  area which should be as a rule of thumb   have the same size as the  factory or the manufacturing   facility itself basically the size is  depending on which products are produced so now we will come to very interesting  parts which in the industry which is   already more or less a trend in Europe  and you and the USA and particularly   interested for Asia the production of  reinforced panel and enlarged aac products   so aac products who are enlarged or bigger than  usual need to be reinforced by a steel grid   so this steel grid or steel mesh need to be  prepared beforehand either way manually as in   that example or by fully automatic systems  which are also available in the market the prepared reinforced steel grids or mesh will  then be mounted on special frames as you can see   here on the left hand side and are ready to be  picked by the aac reinforcement insert manipulator   which you can see on the rails  on the right hand side on the top an exact position of the  reinforced mesh takes place   prior the fermentation process in the filled moulds by reinforcement insertion manipulator   so once the mesh is fixed and the necessary  strength of the cake has been reached   the holding pins and ensure an easy release for the next cycle a left hand side picture followed by an automatic  placement of those pins in a wax bath in the wax   bath is responsible in order to clean the holding  pins and ensure an easy release for the next cycle so here we can see the final product for our   high quality and large panels produced on a  MASA production line ready to be shipped so in order to give you a better  understanding what's the real   advantage of those panels let's have a look at  some typical applications for those products   so the main advantage of enlarged panels is  the fast completion of building structures   a very high cubic meter capacity power and a  more cost saving construction at the end user so basically a lower unit cost  for ready to assemble elements   compared to block production here we can also  see a very nice example for ready to install   wall and ceiling elements based on aac products so now we have reached the second  part of our webinar where we have   a closer look at the manufacturing of  multi-colored heavy concrete products so illustrated here are some typical examples  for a heavy concrete products fully reproducible   on our MASA technology and the production of  multicolored products in that particular industry   is considered an art and every manufacturer who is  producing those products knows that just too well so in the final part of today's webinar  we will explore the MASA philosophy   and solution for manufacturing  of multicolored concrete products   so firstly now we will have a look at the  masa mixing plants itself and then we will   take a closer look at the blending solution  to produce the multicolored products itself so now in this section we will look  at the mixer portfolio of masa the   different concepts when it comes to  base mix and phase mix preparation   and the chapter will be finalized by having a  look at our in-house developed water dosing system The Masa Base Mix concrete mixers PH are available in 3 different sizes.   basically we can cover their output rate up to  3000 liters the output capacity of our mixers   is always defines the volume of the compacted  concrete after the mixing process the minimum   output of our mixers is always one-third of the  maximum throughput rate as indicated and we do   offer only one the s 350 slash 500 mixing out our  portfolio for the preparation of the phase mix   with our phase mix concrete mixers we can  achieve outputs between 120 to 350 liters so all base mix mixing concepts for  MASA are planetary type systems   on one side of the main swiveling door which you  can see here in the picture on the bottom left is   the location of a sample taking port which allows  the customer to take samples even during operation   furthermore the drive has been  mounted on top of the mixer   in order to carry out a simple visual inspection  and to easify maintenance and service tasks   in order to protect the drive train in event  of blockage or jamming the controller is also   equipped with a soft start and automatic  shed term to prevent mechanical damages   so now let's take a look inside the mixer itself  so the mixer is equipped with double hinged doors    on both sides which allows easy cleaning by  a single person those hinge door have been   highly appreciated by our customers in  terms of product change and service tasks   in addition to the mixing arms with the flow  optimized mixing blades which can be seen here   in a distinctive different color than blue the  mixture is also equipped with two scrappers who   continuously clean the mixing walls the mechanical  emptying blade which is seen here in front   drains the concrete to the following conveying  equipment like a flying bucket or conveying belt   after the completion of the mixing process of  course. in addition we see at the front left one   of the four openings for the integration of a  moisture sensor the function for this moisture   sensor and the influence in the process we will  discuss at the later slide so now we come to our   phase mix concrete mixers the s350 slash 500  the basic difference between the s350 slash   and our ph mixers is the mixing principle  itself by the means of a 20 inclined mixing pan   we separate in general the material transport  from the mixing process within the pan. the pan and  

the integrated spinner are counter rotating for  maximum of mixing effect this primarily prevents   the clamping of cement and collar pigments and  enables an optimum homogenization even   with this colored concrete fine aggregates  and small patches in addition to the control   the mixer is also equipped with a soft start  and automatic shutdown in the case of blockage so the mixing element within the pan  consists of a highly wear-resistant swirled   which turns in the opposite direction as of the  pan as already said additionally there is also   wear-protected scraper which is permanently  cleaning the walls and the floors of the pan   so next to continuously cleaning the scraper  is also responsible for emptying the mixing   after the mixing process the mixing pan itself is  equipped with a screwed stainless steel linings   so this guarantees a minimum of adhesion of the  of the materials and simplifies the cleaning   of the mixer itself so the moisture measurement  sensor for this mixer is integrated either as   a hardwired version within the scrap by itself  or a bluetooth version on the bottom of the pan   if a bluetooth version is applied of course  the energy supply will be done by a battery   pack so now we can see a 3d animation  illustrating the principle itself of the   counter rotating and the higher mixing effect  of our system followed by a real-life example   so here you can see a real-life  example at one of our clients   now you can see the filling of the phase mixer  and here you can see the counter rotating effect so now we come to the MASA Aquados our in-house  developed dosing system water dosing system the   MASA Aquados is an in-house development from  MASA and is characterized by the highly precise   and flexible water dosing based on customized  configurations so to clarify the function let's   look into more detail at the different process  steps itself so firstly the mixer will be   filled with aggregates and the mixing will start  subsequently the moisture of the mix is determined   after the dry mixing time is runoff which is  preset in the parameters at this point they   already mentioned moisture sensors will perform  their part and check the actual moisture value   of the mix and send it to the control system  in the next step the actual and the target   moisture value is evaluated by comparing it to the  water cement set point set in the control system   and the additional amounts of water is fitted  accordingly in addition to the mixing process also   the calculated water quantities for each feeding  sequence will be shown in the visualization   so this allows the operator to have an easy  overview and control about the process itself so now in the next section of this part we come to   the blending technology responsible to  produce the multicolored products itself illustrated in their pictures are our two  solutions when it comes to the production   of multicolored concrete products so on the left  hand side you can see our premium version which   is a more comprehensive and patented solution  by MASA on the right hand side you can see the   multi-color easy device which is shown here  in combination with the large machine silo   with double outlets for high volume production as  well as a fast of filling of the filling car this   you can see here on the right hand side the easy  system is a simple solution from us which we will   now discuss in more detail and afterwards  we will have a look at the premium version   so the multi-color easy device is directly mounted  on the machine silo and is characterized by a   minimum space requirement this also allows  a very simple integration in   existing machines to expand the product portfolio  of our customers the throughput measuring of the   concrete takes place through load cells and can be  continuously monitored in our visualization system   the concrete colour mixes at this  versions will be placed in several layers on   top within the easy device and afterwards this  slider in the easy device will stepwise open in   a controlled manner and generate therefore  the random mixing effect in the silo itself   we can take a closer look for better understanding  of that process by the next 3d animation   so basically here you can see the multi-color  easy device so once the device is full the   slider will open in a controlled and stepwise  manner which is preset in the parameters   and therefore generates the random  mixing effect of the color pigments the multi-color easy device does not  have an independent visualization page   but is integrated into the visualization of the  main machine as you can see here that illustration   here is also part of our latest version of  the live monitoring process representation   so this is a real-time monitoring via our in-house  developed visualization system which simplifies   the monitoring of and the process steps and the  overwatch of movable parts within our machines   this allows the operator to repeatedly intervene  into the process if there is any issue arising the control of the unit is directly integrated  in the receive management for each product   here the opening width of the slider  can be defined for all five positions   and the delay time therefore can be set so these  two parameters have a significant influence   on the final appearance of the product  in terms of multi-color production   the multi-color system can be integrated in  both parts of this machine the main and the   phase mix application this also applies for our  patented version the MASA premium multi-color   system by our patented premium version the  system and the process has been designed in   order to reach a maximum of reproducibility  at any point in time the premium multi-color   system consists in general of two assemblies  firstly we do have some swiveling dosing belts   on top which can be seen here on the left hand  side picture and also a collection belt below   firstly we will take a look at the swiveling  dosing units itself MASA uses only stainless   steel silos with a volume of 2250 liter if it's  on the main mix application side and 580   liters if it's of the phase mix application each  silo is equipped with a flap for easy access   related to service and maintenance tasks which can  be seen here in the picture on the right hand side   for constant monitoring of the filling levels  the silos are hung on a steel frame above the   collection belt with four load cells if we talk  about the main mix application and three load   cells for phase mix application  below the silo is a 5 800 millimeter wide   for the main mix application or a 650 millimeter  wide for the phase mix application dosing belt   which is mounted on a swiveling device so this  allows the dosing belt to pivot 30 degrees   from the center axis to the right and the left  side so in general the drives applied here are   not equipped with the frequency converter but  the frequency controlled option is available   in order to also alter the speed of both the  dosing belts as well as the swiveling device so here we see a general design of our system   again in a side view with the upper part the  three silos are hung on the steel frame with   the dosing belt and the swiveling drives this  is also a standard configuration from MASA   for the production of multicolored concrete  product systems for up to three colors   an extension for one more unit to have up to  four colors would be optionally available the   swiveling drive allows the colored concrete  to be placed on up to five different positions   on the collection belt which can be seen in  this picture underneath this swiveling unit   the collection belt is individually movable and  equipped with a frequency converter for speed   for speed adjustment so the combination of  both allows the concrete to be placed precisely   on the collection belt therefore a uniform  deposition in the machine silo is possible and   the pile of cone is reduced  to a minimum as a side effect pictured here is the control page within the  visualization for the multi-color premium system   so the premium multi-color system has its own  control page of course this is also different   compared to the multi-color easy system here too  we will find the master life monitoring display   solution which shows movement and values  in real time and allows an easy monitoring   of the control and the process for components  which are not directly visible from the   control panel or control cabin the life  monitoring ability of our control system   makes it especially comfortable for  the operators to control the process   in that particular example to check the  actual position of the swiveling device additionally our system allows an easy and fast  change to the manufacturing process through   special embedded functions such as the sequence  change which can be seen in the upper left part   of the screen here what exactly is meant by a  sequence change we will explore in the next slide so the control parameter for the different  sequences are also embedded in the recipe  management for each product itself up to 10  sequences can be defined for each product   in our particular example we have only highlighted  three the colored concrete can be deposited on up   to five different positions as already said  and therefore the definition of one sequence   is the deposition of the concrete on the  collection belt at predefined locations each sequence consists of three main parameters  the first parameter indicates that the position   area as already said one to five Pivoting between  positions during one sequence is also possible   and the parameterization therefore can be seen  with the illustrated example at sequence   2 which is highlighted in blue so the parameter  15 means that the swiveling belt below the silo   one and this sequence will pivot between the  drop position 1 and 5 until the defined amounts of   material has been reached the second parameter for  each silo is the delay time this indicates whether   the dosing belt starts directly at the beginning  of the sequence or the start of the dosing belt is   delayed by the set delay time with the  start of a dosing build a certain overlaying   or superimposing of the concrete and the on the  collection belt is possible the third and last   parameter is the amount of concrete for each silo  per sequence to be placed on the collection belt   so this parameter is defined by a weight  factor this is kilograms per second   and therefore determines the running time of  the dosing belts itself so now we can see a   real life example of those dosing system here  we can see the filling by a flying bucket system   of the silos here we can see the dosing belt in  operation now we can witness a sequence change so if you focus your attention now  to the red material you can also   see a certain delay time which has pre-adjusted basically by that patented solution from MASA  you can create multi-colored concrete product   in different shapes sizes and appearance and  can save the parameters in a reproducible way alternative for an addition to multi-color  system with swiveling device we do have also   a multi-color system with linear movable belts  in our portfolio we also offer this a system   with three or four silos and as well enable the  concrete to be positioned on the collection belt   on up to five different positions so by comparing  those two systems the main difference of the index   system compared to the swiveling system is  the higher space requirement since is it not   directly installed on the machine axis but next  to it so therefore a combination of both systems   for example swiveling dosing belts at the main  mix side and indexing belts for the phase mix   sites is possible and would provide an easy  integration for the concrete feeding itself so in this video we would like to illustrate  you the function of the linear movable belts   in operation for a better understanding so in that  example our production of a multicolored product   is taking place at the clip and the indexing  belt is moving between position one and five   so the main reason for doing that is  to reduce the cone of pile to a minimum   and have a more homogeneous  position within the silos so the main MASA concrete block machine itself  can also be configured with additional features   to even reach a higher reproducibility of  multi-colored concrete products we could   for example install a dosing belt instead of  the silo flaps or we could install the bottom   removable bottom plate for the phase weak sides in  order to control the filling of that filling box Dear participants basically now we have reached the  ends of our webinar for today so if you recall the   the main three points we have discussed  firstly we talked about the ACC production and   technology from MASA and why those products can  contribute to a more sustainable future secondly   we talked about new trends in the aac market  basically the production of enlarged elements   and panels for faster and cost saving construction  on the construction site and thirdly we did talk   about the production of multi-colored concrete  products in the field of highly compacted concrete   blocks so if you do have any questions we would  be pleased to if you use the q and a functions   or get with us in touch via email or  phone and i would like to thank you in the   name of the MASA team and the IMPACT team and  you can also drop by at our booth during the BCT   exhibition in september so that was it for me  thank you very much stay safe and stay healthy
