Brick And Block Making Machine

Block making machines are machines that can produce concrete blocks using pressure and vibration, but why are they called brick making machines?

This is because it produces solid blocks also called concrete bricks as well as the other blocks.


So we can see that both brick making machines and block making machines are the same machine with different molds.

Block making machines are capable of producing concrete blocks with a height between 5cm to 30cm. In bigger machines, this is changed to 2cm up to 40cm.




The block making machines are produced in different types and automation levels, below you can see some samples of the machines:

1. Mobile brick laying machine:

This machine is suitable for small projects that only wish to produce hollow blocks, solid blocks, and small curbstones.

The bricklaying machine price is cheaper than other machines, but consider that the molds available for this machine are limited. This machine also doesn't need pallets to produce the concrete blocks.

The production capacity of the mobile brick laying machine is between 2250 to 3500 standard concrete blocks.
