GCI CPM 4000 machines are the perfect solution for applications that demand versatility, productivity, and manufacturing flexibility. The machine comprises of a comprehensive range of production stations and a single core vibration system. Several product shapes, sizes and varieties can be produced on a single machine.
The Double station CPM Machine can produce two different pipe sizes or products at the same time. The mold changeover times is short and will enhance your productivity and manufacturing flexibility. The CPM Machine uses vibration manufacturing process to produce concrete pipe in sizes 84” (2133.6mm) to 144” (3657.6 mm) and 152.4 mm x 50.8mm to 203.2mm x 203.2mm box sections. The machine also produces jacking pipe, HDPE lined pipe and non-Circular shapes like elliptical and arch pipes along with U-drains.

Depending on the volume of product required and product mix to be produced, the CPM Machine has a double station feature. A traditional pipe machine operates through three steps. First, the mold is filled, second the mold is pressed with a spigot former and finally the product is removed from the mold. This will enable you to increase your efficiency by pouring more than one type of product.
Process and product variability are one of the biggest problems faced by concrete pipe manufacturers. The CPM Machine removes this variability through automation, precision mold quality and a vertical press head system. The jacket is rubber-buffer isolated with the pallet to ensure proper isolation of vibration within the product.
An electrically driven, tested design of the central core vibrator is used to produce high quality pipe and reduce mold changeovers. The vibrations are produced by two 45 KW eccentrically driven motors that ensures uniform vibration though out the length of the core. Through this design we guarantee maximum compaction power, reduced cement consumption and maximum concrete density.
Increase your cash flow by reducing your finished product inventory. Flexibility is achieved by connecting the central vibrator to the core via a hydraulic clamping device which ensures rapid mold change.
A certain degree of automation is vital to reduce your labor costs and achieve repeatability in your production cycles so that each product is as accurate as the next. The operator’s console controls the press head, vibration and concrete delivery system to adjust for different feed rates.
