How Much Does A Brick Making Machine Cost?

Brick Making Machine

If you are new to this business and you don't know what brick making machine is, you need to learn about the machines before we can talk about the machine cost. The brick making machine is a machine that produces bricks and blocks made of concrete. To produce these blocks vibration and pressure need to be applied to the mold at the same time.




Consider that by changing the mold you can produce different shapes like hollow blocks, solid blocks, paving blocks, roof gutters, curbstones, styrofoam concrete blocks also known as polystyrene concrete blocks, and lots of other shapes. The height of the product that the machine can handle is between 5cm and 35cm. There are more than 450 molds available for Bess brick making machines.




Based on the products that this machine produces it is also called a hollow block machine or a paver block machine. You can click on their names to read the articles related to them. We have also included prices in them for a better result.


Brick Making Machine Cost

To talk about costs, we need to discuss the factors that affect the brick making machine cost. These factors are:

  1. Automation level
  2. Capacity
  3. Installation country
  4. Choosing optional equipment
  5. Choosing the number of hoppers
  6. Choosing the number of molds




Considering that the brick maker machine cost can be so different based on these four factors there are machines with a cost below 50.000 USD and also machines that are more than one million USD. So based on your project and budget you need to choose the most suitable brick making machine for your plant.

You also need to save a part of your budget to prepare your land, buy aggregate and cement, provide a water system, pay for transportation and customs expenditures, and finally hire workers for your plant.

Semi-automatic Brick Making Machine Cost

 Machine Name  capacity Installation Price 
PRS 400 4000 blocks - 300 m² Included 66,260.00 USD
PRS 402 4000 blocks - 300 m² Included 78,230.00 USD


Brick Making Machine Cost Based on Automation Level

The automation level of your machine considerably affects your machine's cost. there are four automation levels for the machines.

1. Manual 

2. Semi-automatic 

3. Automatic 

4. Fully automatic




If you are living in a country with low labor costs like South Africa, Ghana, Gabon, Ethiopia, Somalia, Nigeria, Djibouti, or Kenya you need to choose semi-automatic brick making machines, because the machine cost will be much cheaper than the automatic and fully automatic machines.

If you are living in a developed country with high labor costs like Canada, the united kingdom, Australia, Italy, the USA, New Zealand, Saudi Arabia, or Egypt you need to choose automatic and fully automatic block making machines because using fewer workers will considerably increase your benefit in the business and soon the higher cost of the machine will be regained.

Brick Making Machine Cost Based on Capacity

The most important factor that affects the concrete block machine cost is the capacity of the machine. The capacity is explained in different ways, some people refer to the number of blocks it can produce in one press, some customers look for hourly production capacity and some customers are asking for the production capacity in an eight-hour shift.




The capacity is a very confusing matter so I would like to explain it simply to avoid confusion.

1. If you are producing blocks like hollow blocks and solid blocks then the capacity is explained in how many standard blocks (20cm width x 40cm length x 20cm height) the machine can produce in one shift.

The smallest brick making machine that we have can produce 4000 pieces of standard hollow blocks in eight hours

2. If you are producing paving blocks, the capacity of the machines is explained in square meters, the smallest brick making machine can produce 300 m² of paving blocks in one shift.

There are 32 to 36 pieces of paving blocks in one square meter. This depends on the shape of your paving blocks.

 Brick Making Machine Name Number of Blocks on One Pallet Production in One Hour Capacity in One Shift
PRS 400  4 Standard Blocks  100 - 120 Pallets   4.000 Pieces - 300 M²

PRS 800 

 8 Standard Blocks  100 - 120 Pallets  8.000 Pieces - 550 M²
PRS 1002   10 Standard Blocks  100 - 120 Pallets   10.000 Pieces - 700 M²

Brick Making Machine Cost Based on Installation Country

 Based on the country in which you are installing your machine, the price of the machine is changed. This is because of the transportation costs. The shipping cost depends on the number of containers your machine will need and also the distance of your country from Turkey. If you buy an automatic machine medium size machine, it needs four containers and the price of the container will be at least 2000 USD.

This will affect the machine's cost considerably. more details about this type of machine are provided in the ''Automatic brick making machine'' article. You can learn more details in the main article.





You also need to consider choosing the best machine for your plant. As explained before, the automatic brick making machine is not always the best option for your plant. You need to choose it based on the explanations in the brick making machine cost based on automation level. You also need to choose the suitable raw material in your country, raw materials, and their prices are different in each country.

Cement should also be prepared. Depending on your machine you can use cement silos are simply buy them in bags and add them to the mixer. You also need to make sure about the way cement is supplied in your country, in some countries, cement is only provided in Bags, so you can't use a cement silo.



Brick Making Machine Cost Based on Choosing Optional Equipment

Based on the brick making machine you buy you can choose different equipment to make production easier for you. These items won't affect the brick making machine's cost very much but they will come in handy to make the process easier.
These items can be cement silo, pallet cleaning brush, product cleaning brush, pallet reversing robot, product washer after production, product collecting robot, forklift, power generator, extra molds, a set of urgent spare parts, spare molds for the future, and other equipment.



Brick Making Machine Cost Based on the Number of Mortar Hoppers

The brick making machine you choose can be a double-hopper or a single-hopper machine. This depends on you.

Both single-hopper and double-hopper machines can produce hollow blocks paving blocks, solid blocks, and curbstones. The advantage of the double hopper machine is that it can produce double-layer paving blocks.

You can use fine materials and also color to the upper layer of the paving blocks. With double hopper brick making machines, you will produce paving blocks with higher quality and also colored surfaces. The machines are often called paving block machines.
The double-hopper machines are so popular in Arabic countries and developed countries. But in less developed countries customers prefer single hopper machines because they are cheaper. You can also buy the second hopper in the future in some of our machines.
