This year in our new plant in Detroit (Trenton) we took an old dirty bay of our large plant and lit it up. New paint, LED lighting, electrical and most importantly cut the floor and installed rail for our automation equipment. We purchased, installed and commissioned four machines. The key machine is the CPO machine. It Cleans, Plots, and Oils the double tee bed. This improves our efficiency and quality and most importantly our safety in the plant.
The next machine is a screed and trowel machine. This machine quietly puts a flat surface on the top of the double tee bed improving our quality of a flat surface. It can also trowel and broom and rake the top surface when needed. This machine can also be used on our wall panel beds. The next machine is a utility machine. It pulls strand and also sets the bulkheads between each piece. This also improves safety and accuracy. The last machine is a tarp roller and it puts the tarp on and off the bed allowing for proper curing of the concrete.
We have also added 2 architectural quality beds from Europe in this bay. This allows for production of 12’ wide plus wall panel beds on a steel surface with no joints leaving you with an architectural quality surface. We are excited to get this bay humming this year!
