PipePlus

The PipePlus family of machines combine versatility, high output and simplicity into one outstanding package. With its three station rotary design the PipePlus will produce pipe in numbers rivaling the most powerful and much more costly machines. Its combination of versatility and productivity is simply unmatched by any machine.

The PipePlus can produce three different pipe sizes or products at one time. Additionally a ten minute form changeover time further enhances manufacturing flexibility and permits short production runs of special or lower volume products. The PipePlus uses a vibration under pressure process to manufacture concrete pipe in sizes 250mm to 1800mm in lengths up to 3.5m. The machine also produces PVC lined pipe, nonround products such as arch and oval pipe, manholes and catch basin products.

Depending on the demands of the local marketplace the PipePlus machines can be equipped as either semi-automatic or manual machines.

  • Maximum pipe lengths of 3.5m
  • 10 minute mould changeover

PipePlus 200

A value based pipe and manhole machine capable of producing more than 60 pipes/hour in the smaller dimension ranges. It is ideally suited to meeting the versatility and productivity demands of the world’s emerging markets.

 

  • Quadform modules up to 450mm
  • Duoform modules up to 800mm
  • Single forms up to 2000mm
  • Maxiumum pipe lengths of 3.5m
  • 10 minute mould changeover

PipePlus 96

The world’s most productive concrete pipe machine capable of producing more than 100 pipes/hour in the smaller dimension ranges and capable of single handedly serving the world’s largest markets.

The PipePlus 96 machine combines versatility, wide production range, high output and simplicity into one outstanding package. With its three station rotary design the PipePlus 96 will produce pipe in numbers never before achieved. Three different pipe sizes are produced at the same time using small diameter EightPak moulds, SixPack moulds, Quad moulds, Duo moulds or Single moulds depending on the diameter of pipe produced. Additionally a quick fifteen minute changeover time further enhances manufacturing flexibility and permits short production runs of special or lower volumn products. The PipePlus 96 uses the time proven vibration under pressure process to manufacture concrete pipe in sizes 300mm to 2500mm in lengths up to 3.5m.

 

  • EightPak modules up to 450mm
  • SixPak modules up to 600mm
  • Quadform modules up to 800mm
  • Triform modules up to 900mm
  • Dualform modules up to 1200mm
  • Single form up to 2500mm
  • Maximum pipe length of 3.58m
  • 15 minute mould changeover
  • PLC equipped with automatic pressheading and vibration controls in addition to an automatic swipe style filling system.

PipePlusPlus

The PipePlusPlus is designed to meet the productivity, versatility and flexibility needs of the middle market pipe and manhole producer as evidenced by its position as the number one selling pipe machine in North America. When equipped with Multiform modules the PipePlusPlus is capable of the mass production of concrete pipe more than 450/shift.

The PipePlusPlus Machine retains the very popular three station design of the PipePlus and incorporates new, advanced control technology with ideas and improvements HawkeyePedershaab have added since the PipePlus was originally introduced. The result is a more streamlined, more versatile and even more productive machine. The PipePlusPlus uses the vibration under pressure process to manufacture concrete pipe in sizes 250mm to 1800mm in lengths up to 3.5m. The machine also produces PVC lined pipe, nonround products such as arch and oval pipe, manholes and catch basin products.

 

  • Quadform modules up to 450mm
  • Duoform modules up to 800mm
  • Single forms up to 1800mm
  • Maximum pipe length of 3.5m
  • 10 minute mould changeover

Features & Benefits

 

3-Station Turntable Principle

Telescope your production processes for maximum efficiency. A traditional concrete pipe machine has 3 major processes – first the mould is filled, second the filled mould is pressed with a spigot former and finally the pipe is demoulded. Utilising the 3 Station principle all these processes happen at the same time – multiplying the productivity!!

 

Exact Length Products

Remove product variability by ensuring each product is exactly the same length. Many concrete pipe production machines are unable to accurately control the length of their products. Through a mixture of volumetric fill control a proprietary pressheading process and precision mold quality the PipePlus eliminates this inconsistency.

 

Header System

Produce pipe with perfectly round, glass like spigots ensuring exact field pipe connections. Use of stay-in place headers allows for the production of pipe with more precise male-end spigots with a smoother surface finish.

 

Synchronised Core Vibration (SCV)

High powered built-in electrically driven core vibration system allows for the production of high quality pipe and eases form changeover. In a SCV system every form set has its own built in vibration system. The use of such a system gives the added benefit of eliminating the need to swap vibrators from core to core during changeover eliminating the costly downtime and increasing plant flexibility.

 

Multiforms

Easily multiply your production tonnages through the use of patented Multiforms. The PipePlus machines allow for the possibility of mass production through the use of the Multiform system – allowing the producer to increase his output by 2x, 3x, 4x, 6x and even 8x without significantly affecting cycle times.

 

Quick Mould Changeovers

Be Flexible. Don’t tie up your money in excess pipe inventory. Simple machine to mould connections and self contained mould modules allow for changeovers of less than 15 minutes on the PipePlus machines.

 

Semi-Automatic Operation with optional Smartchute

Automate to save labour and achieve precisely repeatable production cycles guaranteeing each product is as high quality as the next. The PipePlus machines can be equipped with optional automatic presshead and vibration controls as well as a concrete distribution chute that automatically adjusts between pipe dimensions.

 

Optional Cast-in-place manhole steps

Eliminate costly & back breaking labor required to drive steps into manhole products. The Cast-in-place step (CIPS) program allows for the automatic casting-in of manhole steps – including an automated step insertion robot to keep machine operator working at a safe distance from the machine.

 

Optional lifting anchor automation

Save labour costs by automatically casting lifting anchors into products during machine cycle. One of the most tedious and labour consuming tasks in a manhole or pipe operation is the insertion and driving in of lifting anchors into already cured products. Eliminate this step with an automated lift-anchor insertion system.
