PRACTICAL TEST FULL ELECTRIC I-MIX FT3 FEV185

APRIL 2024

Confirmation of quality and expertise: “It works out of the box”.

After extensive testing in a factory environment in recent months, last week there was a moment to carry out the first practical test with the new FULL ELECTRIC I-MIX FT3. During a renovation project of a private house, a Cw12/F3 traditional sand-cement screed was produced for the ground floor. Pumping was carried out with a 40 m mortar transport hose.

Test results:
State of Charge (SOC) : 14%/h
Average production : 3,65 m3/h

The test did not reveal any significant complications or points for improvement and the test results confirm what had already been calculated by our engineers. In the coming weeks we will carry out various tests on other projects in the Netherlands.

Factory test prototype BREMAT FULL ELECTRIC I-MIX FT3-FEV185 successful

JANUAR 2024

In June 2023, during the EPF Trade show in Feuchtwangen (D), the new BREMAT I-MIX Full Electric fully automatic floor screed installation was shown to the public for the first time. Besides great interest from various screeding companies, the first reservations for production were also placed during the fair. Before the prototype will finally go into production, the machine still had to go through an extensive testing and development phase. Meanwhile, it has successfully passed the stage of various factory tests. At BREMAT's workshop, the machine was tested for weeks on different days for hours at a time. This included continuously pumping of sand and controlling various parts of the machine.

Full Electric - autonomous and emission-free production
Full Electric - autonomous and emission-free production The new I-MIX concept incorporates various new technologies and machine concepts. For instance, this new fully automatic mortar installation is equipped with a fully electric drive system with integrated 185 KWh battery pack, allowing for approx. 6 hours of floor screed production, without external electrical connection. During the test processes, the exact power consumption of all components and various actions under different conditions was analysed.

New operating system
De I-MIX wordt uitgerust met een volledig nieuw besturingssysteem. In plaats van de touchscreen PLC, biedt het nieuwe PC met groot touchscreen bedieningspaneel de gebruiker veel meer mogelijkheden voor dataverwerking, analyse van de technische werking van de machine. Daarnaast zijn ook klant specifieke aanvullingen eenvoudiger te integreren, aangezien het besturingsprogramma volledig ‘in eigen huis’ ontwikkeld is. Hierbij kan men denken aan bijvoorbeeld aanvullende doseersystemen of extra sensoren om gedetailleerde productie- en onderhoudsstatus te monitoren. Het nieuwe besturingssysteem is reeds uitvoerig getest en al meerdere jaren in gebruik bij enkele geselecteerde klanten, waardoor integratie van dit nieuwe besturingssysteem in de BREMAT I-MIX varianten probleemloos kan plaatsvinden. Naast bovengenoemde voordelen biedt deze nieuwe besturing in combinatie met de nieuwe PC technieken de mogelijkheid om de machine via een “Team Viewer” verbinding volledig over te nemen door onze engineers. Hierdoor kan er op grote afstand snel gereageerd worden op problemen of specifieke wensen.

New model - more storage capacity
The raw material container of the I-MIX concept is built differently than before. By using rolled and set steel plates, less welding work is required. The more rounded shapes of the filling container have resulted in greater storage capacity while the vehicle length remains unchanged.

New mixer vessel - low maintenance (F-Series)
The new I-MIX F-Series installations are equipped with a completely new mixer tank with a volume of 220l. Besides high-quality mixing with high pumping capacity, the focus in development was on user-friendliness, reliability, simplified repair/maintenance as well as a significant reduction in maintenance costs.

Meanwhile, the prototype I-MIX FR3-FEV185 has been RDW-approved and registered so that the final part of our extensive test procedure can soon take place on site.

Lots of BREMAT news during the “Afbouw Vakdagen” Trade Show

NOVEMBER 2023

On November 8 & 9, 2023, BREMAT will be present at the Afbouw Vakdagen in the Evenementenhal in Gorinchem (NL).

I-MIXFull Electric 185 kWh

The entire construction industry faces an enormous challenge in working towards emission-free construction. With emission-free construction we cannot avoid the use of electric construction equipment.

With the new I-MIX concept, BREMAT offers screed companies the opportunity to produce fully automatic, emission-free floor screed mortar for no less than 6 hours without an electrical connection.

Although electric construction machines are now even more expensive than traditional diesel-powered construction machines, they do provide screed companies with an advantage. For example, the screed companies that invest now in a sustainable and environmentally friendly production solution will soon have an advantage over the companies that wait longer.

What is involved in a transition from diesel-powered construction machines to hybrid drives or fully electrically powered construction machines? What are the possibilities? What are the advantages? What are the disadvantages? There are many different scenarios and questions that still need to be answered. During the “Afbouw Vakdagen” Trade Show we will be happy to look at your situation with you and tell you everything you want to know about electric construction machines and hybrid solutions.

CONCRETE LINER

Fully automatic production of fine concrete, foam concrete and self-levelling screed from dry materials and pumping of these materials with one machine. These were the starting points for the development. The development of this has been going on for many years and is now in the final phase. During the “Afbouw Vakdagen” Trade Show we will show our prototype that has been built to carry out various practical tests in the foreseeable future. If the practical tests are passed successfully, it can be decided to include this new machine concept as a production model in our delivery program.

SCOOP

MARCH 2023

March 14, 2023, the first new BREMAT L3.20 fully automatic foam concrete plant was commissioned by Betonpompen Friesland BV. Besides the F-Series (semidry floor screed), S-Series (self-levelling floor screed) and P-Series (EPS insulation mortar), BREMAT has further expanded its standard delivery programme with the introduction of the new L-Series (foam concrete). The plant is built on the familiar 3-axle trailer chassis and, in addition to a closed binder compartment of 20m3, it also has an integrated water tank of 20m3. The installation is equipped as standard with a BREMAT SG400 hydraulically driven fully automatic foam generator. This installation enables the user to flexibly supply high and homogenous quality foam concrete in both small and large quantities.

The in-house developed foam concrete control programme can be infinitely controlled in a production and pumping capacity of 4-45m3 per hour. In mid-2023, the L-Series will be expanded with the L5.20, a foam concrete plant suitable for mounting on a 5-axle truck chassis.

WORLD FIRST

NOVEMBER 2022

November 3, 2022 the world's first Dual Drive / Hybrid fully automatic mobile sand-cement floor screed installation was delivered to Strack Vloeren in Utrecht.

This installation is a pilot project, with initial discussions having already started in early 2021.

The new installation was realised in close cooperation between our engineering department and the client. In addition to the entire Dual Drive technology, a completely new software programme was developed by BREMAT. The installation is equipped with a new large LCD touch screen control panel. A 63A power connection allows for full electrical production and pumping. Where there is insufficient electrical infrastructure, the installation can run on the diesel engine in the familiar way. 

Meanwhile, we have further expanded the delivery programme in the F-series (semidry floor screed) with a trailer version F3.20E Dual Drive/Hybrid.

F5.20E Dual Drive / Hybrid system for Strack Floors

PLUNGER PUMP B80 IN SERIES PRODUCTION

AUGUST 2022

In 2016, a prototype of the BREMAT B80 plunger pump was first shown on the world stage during the BAUMA in Munich. After 5 years of carrying out several practical pilot projects at various customers in Europe, this plunger pump is now in series production.

The BREMAT B80 plunger pump was specially developed for pumping self-levelling floor screed and, in addition to a high pumping capacity, also ensures an extremely low wear pattern, minimising costs and downtime. Depending on the usual wear pattern of a stator/rotor pump, by using a new BREMAT piston pump you will in many cases achieve a "return on investment" situation after only 2 to 3 years.

The B80 piston pump can be supplied ex-factory as standard on all our S-Series models and can also be combined with an SG400H automatic foam generator for foam concrete production. According to practical experience, depending on the composition of the self-levelling floor screed in question and the construction situation, a B80 piston pump can achieve a production and pumping capacity of up to 18 m3/hour.

50TH BREMAT MACHINE FOR CHRONO CHAPE SRL. (F)

FEBRUARY 2022

The fiftieth BREMAT machine for Chrono Chape Srl. was delivered at the end of February.

The new machine, an S3.17T fully automatic mobile self-levelling floor screed installation assembled on a 3-axle semi-trailer, is part of an order of 10 new machine, which are deployed throughout France for production and delivery of self-levelling floor screed.

Normally BREMAT machines are delivered ex-works 's-Hertogenbosch (NL), but for this special occasion it was decided to deliver this machine personally in France. Chrono Chape's recognisable corporate advertising was slightly adapted by BREMAT for this special machine. "After all, it is a machine with a golden edge. We are proud to have been business partners for many years. Supplying fifty machines to one client in our industry is unique," said Bart Nijhoff, commercial manager of BREMAT Holland BV.

"We make high demands on our drivers/operators. Then it is crucial that as a company you are also appealing and work with beautiful and durable material," Cedric Dupuy owner of Chrono Chape Srl. based in Genlis, France, told us.

His wife Anne-Lise Dupuy goes on to say; "Our operators are very enthusiastic about BREMAT. They are reliable and easy to operate machines. We made our choice of BREMAT at the time based on quality and good after-sales service. The people at BREMAT listen to our needs and make specific adjustments where necessary. They support us to arrive at the best solution".

The good relationship between BREMAT Holland BV and Chrono Chape Srl. was again underlined shortly after the delivery of the 50th BREMAT installation by a the conclusion of a new agreement for the delivery of 8 new S3.17T machines. These machines are scheduled for delivery in Q4-2022 and Q1-2023.
