Ireland‘s state-of-the-art precast concrete plant starts production
Kilsaran International, Ireland‘s largest producer of concrete products, recently invested in a new carousel plant for precast concrete element production at its Kilcullen site. This enables the production of double walls and lattice girder floors as well as solid and insulated finished elements. James Murphy, the Business Development Manager at Kilsaran explains: „We manufacture our products to suit the Irish market and not to suit our plant.“
Automation in each individual step of production
The high degree of automation was the crucial key to their choice of the PROGRESS GROUP to supply equipment for their plant. A robotic system comprising warehouse, shuttering and deshuttering robots lays the shutters from the Infinity Line® Notch-free shuttering system completely automatically. A gripping tool also allows magnets for power sockets to be positioned and the Mesh Spacer automatically positions spacers for the mesh on the pallet.
We manufacture our products to suit the Irish market and not to suit our plant.
