The Production Process Of A Paving Block Machine


To see more videos of our machines please visit our youtube channel Bess Machine EN.

If you need details on the production process of hollow block machines or paving block machines you can visit our youtube channel, we have prepared animations that explain the process step by step.

The production process has different steps based on the machine automation level. But the General process is preparing water, cement, and aggregate, Mixing the ingredients, and shaping a mortar. Finally pouring the mortar into the molds to shape the desired blocks. We will explain this in detail in the rest of the article.


What Is A Paving Block?

Paving blocks are concrete blocks that are used to pave the floor. Paving blocks are produced in different shapes and sizes. They are also produced in interlocking shapes to have a better function.



You can use paving blocks to pave the driveway yards, garden sides, and walkways. Pavers are also produced in different colors to make them more beautiful.

Paver blocks have different thicknesses as well. Usually, for normal places with a low load, 6cm pavers are used and for the places with a higher load on them, 8cm paving blocks are used.

The most important thing about paving a path is to prepare an appropriate foundation under the pavers. Depending on the load it can be 20cm up to 40 cm.

The quality of the paving blocks depends on the quality of your paving block machine and the quality of the paving block making machine depends on the price.

Paving Block Machine Price

A paving block machine is a machine that produces paving blocks. To produce high-quality pavers, you must have a paver block machine.

High-quality paver block machines should have the features below:

1. High hydraulic pressure:

The higher the pressure is, the higher the pavers are compressed and they will have better quality. Having excessive pressure will cause the mold to be worn out faster so it should be adjustable. Higher pressure doesn't mean higher quality all the time. The pressure needs to be adjustable between 100bars and 200 bars.



2. Strong vibration:

The vibration force makes sure that there are no hollow spaces and cavities inside the blocks. The picture below shows the manufacturing process of the block making machine. You can see the vibration motors in the picture.

Generally, the paving block machine price depends on the brands of equipment used on the machine.




3. Mold quality:

The high-quality mold guarantees that you will have the right form of blocks with the right dimensions for a longer time.

The number of molds that you choose with the machine has a serious impact on the paving block machine's price.




Molds are usually changed once in 2 years depending on how often you use them.

Bess produces its own molds you can visit our mold gallery to see our mold samples.

4. Automatic mortar system:

The automatic mortar system mixes the raw materials, cement, and water in the right ratio to make sure that the quality of the mortar will be the same all the time.

High-quality mortar results in high-quality pavers as well. It is important to keep the customer happy with high-quality pavers all the time.

There are two options available for the mortar system. Semi-automatic and automatic are the options. The automatic system is preferred in developed countries that require higher standards for their products. The paving block machine price is much higher with the automatic system but the advantages far outweigh the price.




5. The equipment used on the machine:

High-quality electric and hydraulic parts have a longer life than normal ones and they will guarantee that your machine won’t break down so easily. This will also decrease your maintenance time considerably.

6. The capability to produce different shapes of blocks.

Bess paving block machines can produce paving blocks, hollow blocks, solid blocks, curbstones, and any shape between 5cm and 25cm in height. All you need to do is to change the mold.

Note that Generally, these machines are concrete block machines.

Concrete block machines are produced in different capacities and types, Based on these features the price of the machine is determined.

Single hopper paving block machines:

Single-hopper concrete block machines can produce single-layer paving blocks. Single-layer paving blocks have two major issues

1. If you want to use colored paving blocks you need to apply them to the whole block.

2. If you want to have a smoother surface you need to use finer material for the whole block.

Consider that these machines are mostly used to produce hollow blocks and solid blocks, so they are usually called hollow block machines or brick making machines.




Double hopper paving block machines:

To solve the issues with single-hopper machines we use double-hopper machines. Double hopper paver block machines can use double-layer pavers. You can apply color or finer materials to the top surface of the blocks to have a colored smoother surface.

For small projects, only one mixer is used, but for big projects, a small mixer is also used for color mortar. These types of machines are explained in the article paver block machine.




Semi-automatic paving block machine:

Semi-automatic machines need an operator to run the machine and the pallets are transported to the curing area by handcarts. The machines are suitable for startup businesses because they are cheaper than the other options. Normally 7 workers are needed to operate the full plant. The capacity of these machines is 300 m² up to 700 m² in an eight-hour shift.

Automatic paving block machine

Automatic machines need an operator to run the machine and the pallets are transported to the curing area by a forklift. This will reduce the number of workers you need and the space needed for the curing area.


In the 2023 model, most of the parts are automatic. this will make the job a lot easier and reduce the fault rate caused by the operator. The price of this machine is not so much different from the fully automatic version.  This machine has a capacity the same as the semi-automatic version and is also available in higher capacities. Automatic paving block machines are preferred in countries with high labor costs or expensive lands.

Fully automatic paving block machine:

The fully automatic concrete block machines run completely automatic and only one worker is needed to operate the forklift. These machines are more expensive than other options. The capacity of these machines is up to 1.500m² in one shift.

The table below shows the paving block machine price list. you can click on the machine for further information. Consider that there are some optional parts in the price list that can increase or decrease based on the equipment you choose.
