Hammer Ager* technology

Hammer Ager Aging System

  • Continuous in-line aging process in less than 10 seconds for a “3-at-a-time” block machine (options of big board machine is available).
  • Virtually no additional labor cost to give a tumbled look to your split face SRW.
  • Vibrating hammers use air vibrators that are completely sealed, eliminating all dust contamination and premature wear.
  • This process virtually eliminates rejects and preserves all other blocks faces positioning features (pin hole, lip, tongue and groove).
  • Fast set-up for different product dimensions.
  • Automatic evacuation of concrete debris to scrap bucket.
  • Complete enclosure for sound reduction and safety.
  • Long-lasting wear parts due to oscillating movement rather than rotating movemement.
  • The secret of HAMMER AGER* is its unique way of hitting the block edges at 45° to compress, crush and grind similar to a real tumbler. Treating also the front face exposed areas results in a true tumbled block.
  • Random impact on both edges and the split face of the block combined with special hammer shape gives each block its own aged personality.
  • Proven look in a mature market with more than five years of successful sales.
  • Adjustable speed and impact to achieve different textures or to compensate for longer curing time.
