Schwing Stetter also clinched the record in dam concrete production with 6,020 cu m of concrete at Subhansri.The growing demand for ready-mix concrete and the growing need for a range of batching plants to chose from, both these requisites can and are solved by Schwing Stetter India, the leader in the manufacturing of ready-mix construction equipment in India. From residential, roads, dams, bridges, canals to nuclear projects, Schwing Stetter equipment has widespread applications and are called the first and the best choice of the RMC industry. These kinds of equipment have played a vital role in the fabrication of precast barriers for Metro Rail and airport projects across the country. Schwing Stetter batching plants also produce temperature-controlled concrete for nuclear power plant applications.Schwing Stetter India manufactures concrete production, placing and transit related products for the construction industry which include batching plants, concrete pumps and transit mixers. With three manufacturing facilities in Chennai, the company has the biggest manufacturing facility for batching plants in South Asia.Batching plants are machines which mix the different ingredients of concrete homogenously to produce a perfect mix of concrete. Schwing Stetter manufactures a wide range of batching plants that can be broadly classified with respect to their design, batch size, material storage (aggregate storage), and mixer technology.“We analyse each customer’s requirement and guides the customer to opt for the batching plant which would suffice his needs of concreting from the wide range available,” says VG Sakthikumar, Chief Operating Officer, Schwing Stetter India.There are five different types of batching plants that are manufactured by Schwing Stetter India, which include wheel-trailer/truck mounted, compact plants, mobile plants, horizontal plants and vertical plants.The on-wheels concept has been introduced by Schwing Stetter, keeping in mind the easy transportability of the batching plant between sites. This design is available in the 18 cu m segment, which is also known as the ‘CP18 on wheels’ which can be a trailer or a truck-mounted batching plant.The compact plant design houses small capacity plants which includes the CP30 (30 cu m productivity rate). This plant is available in star, compartment and in-line silo configurations.The mobile plants are known for its easy assembly and erection at the site like the M0.75, M1, M1.25, M2, M2.25, and M2.5.The horizontal plants are higher capacity plants that produce large volumes of concrete, for eg, plants like H1, H1.25, H3, H2, and H6.Vertical plants are batching plants which are installed in case of space constraints at the site. These plants have all the plant structures integrated on top of the plant to reduce the space required.Plants made by SSI have an output varying between 18-240 cu m per hour.Aggregate Storage: Schwing Stetter batching plants store aggregates in three different ways: compartment, in-line silo, and star/partition walls.With respect to the availability of space on the site, the customer can chose the storage option. Schwing Stetter offers compartment type storage in all the compact and mobile plants, the Star type storage is available in the 30 cu m segment whereas the in-line silo/bin storage is available in selected models of compact plants and all models of horizontal plants.Mixer Technology: The objective of any concrete production is a homogenous mix of concrete; without a homogenous mix, there could arise a series of problems which will be faced by the end-users of concrete. There are two mixer technologies which help achieve this homogeneity, they are pan mixer and twin-shaft mixer. The turbo pan mixer used by Stetter is famous for the mixing quality, thanks to its gearbox driven arms while the twin-shaft mixer is preferred wherever vast quantities of concrete are to be produced.It is also important to understand that all these plants are operated using control systems which range from semi-automatic (MCI35) to fully automatic (MCI360).The state-of-the-art technology of the batching plants and the their reliable quality has helped Schwing Stetter earn its place as the leader in the ready-mix concrete equipment industry.With service and spares support across the country and a customer-centric manufacturing facility.
