  • Paver
  • Pipe
  • Precast

The tumbler is engineered to permit easy and cost-effective upgrading of basic systems to high performance systems. Upgrades can include automatic cube staging conveyors, an automatic wood pallet accumulation system, manual or automatic product aligning conveyors and three cuber styles: overhead clamp, slider plate or robotic arm.

The innovative engineering of the Tumbling System sets a new standard for tumbling concrete products. The unique rugged design of the tumbler minimizes the cost of tumbling concrete pavers, brick and retaining wall units by reducing the routine maintenance required and providing features to maximize profitability and minimize culls. These design features, which are meticulously engineered, include:

  • The tumbler Section Feeding Box (SFB) provides an efficient, costeffective method to remove sections of concrete products from the storage pallet and gently feed the sections into a tumbler. The cube pusher  indexes a single section of concrete pavers, brick or retaining wall units into the feeding box which slowly tips backward and raises to the top of the tumbler. Once at the top the units are gradually fed into the tumbler.
  • The spiral steel tumbler drum is submerged arc welded from 3/8" steel for maximum rigidity and roundness, providing a long, dependable life.
  • A long-life rubber lining 2" (51 mm) thick is attached to the drum with three hardened steel T-bars. The simple design permits straightforward, simple replacement of the liner when needed.
  • A 24" (610 mm) long hardened steel wearing plate with debris evacuation slots cut at 45 degree angles at the end of the tumbler allows the product to gently fall from the tumbler, reducing breakage as the units fall from the tumbler onto the output conveyor. At the output of the drum, a heavy-duty output conveyor transfers the product onto a product accumulation turntable for manual cubing.

  • Manual or automatic product aligning conveyors positioned at ground level convey rows of product to the packaging system.
