Batchtron has been upgradedOctober 2016 - Batchtron II upgrade

BatchTron II has new screen symbols.  For today's world of muted graphics and better usability, we have created a cool look to Batchtron's symbols.  In addition, users can now choose plant configurations from a huge selection of menu choices, with symbols and active buttons appearing on the operator screens when they are selected.  this allows installers and dealers to set up their batch controllers on-site without need for custom programming.  As we move forward, these screens will appear on our web pages.

July 2015 - Mobile Control in use at Lindsay Precast

Lindsay Precast's Rock Hill SC plant has been using the Mobile Control tablet computer for their operator interface for several months now and their general manager Pete Schmitt says "After the BatchTron control system, it's the best investment we have made.  No need for anyone to be in the control room;  we do everything from the tablet, making the whole operation more efficient".  Mobile Control runs on a portable tablet computer connected to the batching controller by WiFi.  It mirrors the batching screen and allows a roving operator to control all batching operations.  Contact us for more information.

April 2015 - High pressure Mixer Washout redesigned with lower cost

The High pressure Washout system now uses a smaller pump with washing heads sequenced instead of the previous method of running them all simultaneously.  This allows use of the full 1000 psi and 20 gpm pump output to give enormous washing power at a lower cost than before, making it affordable to even small precast operations.  More information

October 2012 - All-New Fiber Bag Dispenser

Fiber bag dispenser videoOur first generation model used the spiral principle, seen in many vending machines, to dispense bags of the same size.  Its limitation, however, was that different bag sizes needed special setup or different spirals.  The new model eliminates this and gives a much more positive action;  it is virtually impossible to over or under-dispense.  Watch the action by clicking on the picture at left or visit our   
  Youtube video page.     Read more     Press release

October 2010 - Moisture measurement for rotating pan mixers

MixTron Glider mount is used in rotating pan mixersThe MixTron Glider is an elegant solution to a difficult problem.  It acts like a ski or toboggan, allowing the MixTron moisture sensor to glide on the surface of the mix while measurements are being taken.  When measurement is finished, the Glider lifts out of the mix, reducing wear and buildup until it is time to measure the next batch.  The "ski" holds the sensor faceplate at a constant downward pressure in the mix, controlling density and eliminating air pockets that destroy accuracy.  The result is a highly stable, accurate reading that allows fast assessment of the moisture either before or during the addition of water.

See MixTron page for further information.
