Today we are looking at block making machines. While there a lot of block making machines out there to choose from, there are just about a handful of economical block making machines.

When choosing a block making machine, it obviously has to be one that can produce a good amount of compact blocks while saving time and energy.

Let’s get to the main details as we take a look at the most economical block making machines available.

The Rometa 4050 Block Making Machine

Firstly, why Rometa? Rometa has been in the business of making blocks since 1956. Over 60 years of 'block making experience' is enough to put your mind to rest. Let's get straight to the block making figures now.

The Rometa 4050 block making machine (as it is called) produces a minimum of 3,000 blocks per hour and 15 blocks per cycle.

Now how do you have that much speed while you keep the quality of the blocks produced? This machine uses a large wooden tray of 1,400 mm x 1,200 mm and a vibrocompressor with pressing weight of 12000 Kilograms.

In another case, making concrete by hand requires much carefulness when mixing it. The Rometa 4050 takes makes this very easy with it’s electronics cement balancing feature.

Talking about time, the machine incorporates a robot that conveys the blocks to the 1,200 m2 drying area.

All these features don’t need an entire company. It requires just 4 individuals – 2 operators and 2 experior workers – to control the processes.

The following is a complete detail of this economical block making machine:

  1. Machine cycle: 17 to 22 seconds depending on the kind of block and design
  2. Tray: 1400 x 1200
  3. Production hollow blocks 20 x 20 x 40: 3000 hollow blocks / hour 100% efficiency. 180 cycles / hour
  4. Hollow Blocks 20 x 20 x 40 = 15 blocks / cycle
  5. Ceiling blocks of 15 = 14 units / cycle
  6. Curbstones T2 = 4 concrete curbs / cycle
  7. Paving 1m2 / cycle
  8. Press Weight = 12000 Kg
