Chi Hieu CLC Blocks Plant

This Manufacturer in Hochiminh City in Vietnam has invested in one modern production line with mobile molds which have many compartments for bricks casting. After one day from the mortar pouring into the molds, he use a hydraulic pressing machine to push the bricks out off the mold, laying them directly on the pallet.

The molds and the hydraulic pressing machine, pallets, the mold cleaning machine had took away from his budget about USD 250,000. But the result was not up to buyer's expectation: many bricks are broken after pressing out from the battery mold; the rate of broken brick come up to 15%. The cost of de-molding oil and molds maintenance was very high. All the surfaces of the bricks are covered by demolding oil, and are very smooth, difficult for application of the plaster and brick laying mortar. The sales of the products become difficult. The consumers refused to buy his bricks and this put him in a difficult situation.
Then he decided to get rid of the old production system and buy one MasterCut-3  wire cutting machine from THT International Co., Ltd. We have assisted him to modify his production line and the molds. The cassette molds were replaced by big cake molds of the size 1200 x 1200 x 400/600mm. The big cakes casted in new moulds are cut into small bricks after 2-3 hours in one cutting action.  

With new machine, he can offer any size of bricks to many buyers instead of only one size. This excellent capability of the machine has helped him to diversify his sales and list of buyers, increasing the business volume drastically. Due to new quality of the bricks, especially the surface are not covered by oil, the producer has received many orders from local contractors of high raise buildings.  Recently he received and order for 200,000 m3 of clc bricks from a foreign contractor in Saigon which requires the bricks size of 20 x 20 x60cm. This size is not available on the market and he could not supply it if the MasterCut-3 machine was not purchased.
