Brick making machines are produced in different types with different automation levels and capacities. The details of the brick making machine are explained below step by step. 




Brick making machine capacity

It is important to understand the meaning of capacity for brick making machines because its an international standard that every manufacturer works with. The capacity of the brick making machine is determined with the number of standard blocks it can produce in a single cycle.

The standard brick that we are talking about is a brick with the dimensions as 20cm width, 40cm length, and 20cm height. You can learn more about bricks in our articles ''What hollow concrete block is in general and in details'' and ''What is Hollow Block?''.




 Brick making machine different names

Brick making machine has different names based on the bricks it produces.

When this machine produces hollow blocks it is called a hollow block machine. When it produces solid concrete blocks it is called a concrete block machine, when you use interlocking molds in your production line it is called interlocking brick machine.

Also, some customers order their machine as a double-hopper machine, this machine is generally called a paving block machine because it is capable of producing double-layer paving bricks.

As you see there are different names for this machine so don't get confused when they are used interchangeably.

Automatic brick making machines are usually preferred by developed countries because labor costs are high in developed countries and they prefer robots to do the job and reduce the plant costs as low as possible and as the result to reduce the final price of the bricks as low as possible to keep up with their rivals. The price of the machine may look a little bit high but for developed countries in the long-term, it is more beneficial.




4. Full-automatic brick making machine:

Full automatic brick making machines are operated completely automatic. You only need to push the start button of the machine and a forklift driver to handle the products. Their product capacity usually starts from 10.000 pieces of standard blocks in an eight-hour shift and the biggest one can produce 24.000 pieces per shift.

Choosing the right brick making machine for your business

This is the most important part of your project. You need to consider every detail of the machine to choose the right machine.

First of all, you need to consider vibration force and hydraulic pressure. These two factors are the most important factors because they directly affect the quality of your product.
Secondly, you need to control the raw materials used to manufacture the machines. It is very important because if the raw materials like metal sheets are high in quality it will keep your machine together for a long time
Thirdly, you need to check which brands the manufacturer uses for the electric and hydraulic parts. This is very important because it determines the fault rate of your machine. Well-known German brands are a logical choice.

Factors in the brick making machine total price

There are some unnecessary items in the proforma that you need to cross. For example, you don't need to order pallets from the manufacturer factory. You should provide them locally, this way you will save the transportation cost and you don't need to pay for pallets in euros or dollars. You also need to choose a cheaper machine than your total budget because you are going to pay for aggregates and preparing your land. Bess suggests you not to spend your whole budget on the machine.
The factory that you choose to buy shouldn't be too far from you if you are buying big machines that occupy a few containers. The total freight cost will be too high this way. Buying a big machine from a far country is only logical if the quality meets the world standards.


Generally, the brick manufacturing business is a very prosperous business but you need to be careful to make the right choices.
