MACHINE PHOTOS: Hawkeye-Pedershaab After a 15-month planning and construc- tion window, Lecuyer Group's newly branded operation, Quebec Concrete Pipe Inc.—or Tuyaux de Béton Quebec Inc., per province custom—was ready for inspection by the Bureau de Normalization du Quebec, the provincial certification agency accred- ited by the Standards Council of Canada. "We passed all of our testing [in] February 2011," says Tavares. "We had already ap- proached many of our existing customers and had numerous advance orders for pipe. We are well known in this market for qual- ity and on-time delivery." The HawkeyePedershaab Pipe Pro XT's three-station rotary turntable design enables three sizes of pipes to be produced simultaneously. A charge conveyor feeds the machine dry mixes from the ACT MobilMat batching system. Each of the four steps in the pipe- making cycle—batching, cage fabrication, molding and kiln transfer, and finished product testing and transfer—is performed with one or two crew mem- bers. Machinery and robotics handle the rest. 26 | APRIL 2012 WWW.CONCRETEPRODUCTS.COM
