With that in mind, today’s concrete equipment is seeing a profound movement toward automation that removes human error from the equation.
The result promises fewer mistakes, greater productivity, lower costs and higher-quality results. Following are some examples of this trend seen in February at World of Concrete 2020 in Las Vegas, US.Volumetric concrete mixing trucks go a long way toward increasing efficiency on job sites, and today, their efficiency increases with the use of telematics. Traditionally, these machines required a human to manually set up the mix according to the needs of the job.
This works well, except that human subjectivity can result in inconsistencies and even mistakes.To help alleviate those concerns, Cemen Tech offers its Accu-Pour Office and Mobile, a telematics suite of cloud-based productivity solutions for all makes of volumetric concrete mixersTo help alleviate those concerns, Cemen Tech offers its Accu-Pour Office and Mobile, a telematics suite of cloud-based productivity solutions for all makes of volumetric concrete mixers.
“This really takes the element of human error away,” says Connor Deering, CEO of Cemen Tech. “You can plug in a mix design in one of two ways. You can either go to the control panel on the truck itself and enter it in, or you can use our Accu-Pour software on your tablet and it then communicates back to the control panel on the truck. Either way, the operator selects a mix design, presses start and the machine completely sets itself.”
