Cement brick making machine

Cement brick making machine

Generally, cement brick making machine is a machine that uses vibration and pressure on the mortar to produce hollow concrete blocks also called hollow cement blocks or other concrete products. this machine is also called hollow block machine. This machine has different automation leveles and different capacities. We will discuss them one by one in this article.

You may ask why cement is used instead of concrete in the name. It is because usually, people don’t know the difference between concrete and cement, so they call both cement and that’s why they call these blocks cement bricks. Cement is the powder that is used with other raw materials and water to form the concrete in the shape of mortar. 

About the brick, this is true as well. Before hollow blocks, people only used bricks and when these hollow cement blocks were created people started to call them cement bricks. It is not a correct name but it is commonly used.

So, when we say cement brick machine, it means block making machine, hollow bricks machine or interlocking brick machine as well.

cement brick making machine operation process

brick making machine have different types but globally it is categorized into two main types

  • Mobile cement brick making machine

  • Stationary cement brick making machine


Mobile cement brick making machine

Mobile cement brick making machine also called egg-laying machine is way simpler than the stationary cement brick machine. it is cheaper as well, but the capacity is lower as well. This machine is capable of moving after it lays cement bricks.

Talking about the pros and cons, this egg layer machine moves after it lays concrete hollow blocks. This machine doesn’t need pallets. it produces the hollow cement blocks on the ground, this is an advantage but every machine in the world has its disadvantages as well. This machine is not a paver block machine it means it cannot produce concrete paving blocks and the capacity is low compared to stationary cement brick making machines.

The capacity of the mobile cement brick making machine is between 2225 and 3750 pieces of hollow concrete blocks in eight hours.

This machine is manufactured in three different types as shown below

The main difference between these cement brick making machines is their speed. The full-automatic cement brick making machine can produce faster than the other machines but it’s a little bit expensive as well.

Totally to operate this cement brick making machine you need 4 workers on the field, one worker will operate the machine, two workers supply the mortar needed for the machine and one delivers mortar from the mixer to the cement brick making machine.

This machine is called a bricklaying machine too.

The capacity of the mobile cement brick making machine is shown in the table below:


Machine name Semi-automatic Full-automatic
Manual cement brick making machine 2250 pieces of hollow blocks 2750 pieces of hollow blocks
semi-automatic cement brick making machine 2500 pieces of hollow blocks 3250 pieces of hollow blocks
Full-automatic cement brick making machine 2750 pieces of hollow blocks 3750 pieces of hollow blocks

Stationary cement brick making machine

As the name represents this machine is stationary. It is designed to produce different capacities and different types of concrete products. This machine uses pallets and molds to produce cement blocks or other cement products.

First, aggregate is transferred to the field to supply the cement brick making machine then the machine automatically or manually delivers this aggregate to the mixer, water and cement are added to the mixer in this step, then the mortar is formed. Mortar is then delivered to the cement brick making machine and the machine uses molds and pallets to produce hollow concrete blocks. we use Siemens plc in our machines.

When concrete blocks are formed, they need to get dried before they can be used.

To transfer the pallets to the drying section two choices are available:

  • Manual pallet collecting system
  • Automatic pallet collecting system

Each of both has advantages and disadvantages over another, manual pallet collecting system is cheap and simpler, but it required more space to get dried because pallets are collected and delivered one by one, it consumes more time as well because it is done by hand and slowly.

On the other hand, the automatic pallet collecting system is more expensive but it is done by robots which are mounted on the stationary
concrete block machine. Pallets containing the produced wet blocks are first stored on top of each other, when they reach five, they are delivered to the drying section to get dried. By this system, you need less space for the drying section (five times smaller). Then the dried pallets are brought to the pallet feeding part of the machine and a robot takes the dried concrete blocks and delivers them to the euro pallets. It is true that the automatic cement brick making machine is expensive, but the advantages far overweigh the price.  

Stationary cement brick making machine has some special options which can be added when ordering, for example, you can add a second hopper for the machine. with this option, you can produce two-layered paving blocks with different colors to make the paving blocks or other products more appealing. this machine is also called paver block machine.

The capacity of the cement brick machine is defined with how many standard hollow blocks a cement brick making machine can produce in one press.

The smallest stationary cement brick making machine can produce 4 pieces of standard hollow blocks in one press. standard block means a block with the dimensions of 20cm*40cm*20cm(height). This machine is called PRS-400.

The next stationary cement brick making machine can produce 6 pieces of standard hollow blocks in one press. this machine is called PRS-600.

There are bigger sizes as well. The biggest size of stationary cement brick making machine is PRS-2400.

The smallest stationary cement brick making machine can produce 4000 pieces of hollow concrete blocks and The biggest stationary cement brick making machine can produce 24000 pieces of hollow concrete blocks in eight hours.

Mortar type used in producing hollow concrete blocks

the basic mixture of the mortar is 4-to-1 or 5-to-1 mixture. It means for every five parts of sand you need to add one part of cement and then you should add water until it you achieve the texture you want for your cement brick making machine. To produce a mixture which can be used in cement brick machine you generally want a thick, creamy mixture that will stick but also endure the blocks' weight.

When adding water, you need to be more careful because too much water will make it difficult for the sand particles to bond with cement in the concrete.

You should also be careful with the amount of cement you are using for your cement brick making machine. to much cement will cause cracks on the hollow concrete clocks when they are dried. you can sometimes go as low as three shovels of sand to one shovel of cement, anything beyond that does not provide you with a quality mortar that cures slowly and hardens the best.

Sand helps the hollow concrete blocks to withstand the weight of the wall. So make sure you use the right ratio in your mortar.

These days it is very important to make hollow blocks lighter in weight.

It can be achieved by mixing a lighter aggregate, such as perlite, vermiculite or Styrofoam to reduce the overall weight.

Like always it has advantages and disadvantages. It is not as strong as the old mixture but it has better insulation than the traditional concrete.

 This concrete is often used for countertops and rooftop decks, where a lighter weight is more important than a higher strength. it is also used for walls where insulation is more important than strength, such as offices.
