Concrete Canvas chooses KEB drives, controllers and HMIs for new production line
02 March 2020
Concrete Canvas Ltd has reduced wiring installation costs and has greater flexibility in terms of future expansion plans for machines and additional lines.
Concrete Canvas Ltd is the sole manufacturer of Concrete Canvas (CC) and CC Hydro (CCH), which are manufactured in South Wales and exported to more than 80 countries. CC is a new material technology called a geosynthetic cementitious composite mat, or GCCM. The material is a flexible concrete impregnated fabric that hardens on hydration to form a thin, durable, waterproof concrete layer. Essentially, the product is ‘concrete on a roll’.
In Spring 2018, due to increased demand for its products, Concrete Canvas Ltd purchased a new facility in Pontyclun, around six miles from the original factory in Pontypridd. This new site is around three times the size of the Pontypridd facility, providing the company with significant opportunities for continued growth.
Graham Rose, Engineering Manager at Concrete Canvas Ltd, is responsible for developing the new production lines at Pontyclun, including machinery, controls and automation systems. He states: “As there was no off-the-shelf machinery available for producing our new product, all the design and build work was performed in-house.”
