Special Purpose machines
Chimney Demolition Saw
The deconstruction of the BASF chimney with a height of 200 metres initiated development work on the chimney demolition saw by the MB Schornstein- und Betonabbruch company and LISSMAC. This development work was necessary because the immediate environment of the chimney prohibited the use of such traditional demolition techniques as blasting and chiselling, or concrete demolition with shears.
The chimney demolition saw guarantees the safe demolition of the chimney with minimum impact on the immediate surroundings. The use of this special saw enabled the 200-metre high chimney to be demolished within 8 weeks, whereas demolition using traditional methods would have taken approximately 6 months.
Dowel Drive System
Redmax - The automatic dowel drive system was specially designed and manufactured for the installation of fireproof plates on tunnel walls.
This specifically purpose-built machine makes it possible for two to three workers to install the fireproof plates without using a scaffold.
Manufacture of sand-lime bricks
As a member of a consortium collaborating with the Xella Group, Lissmac has made a detailed study of the manufacture of fitting elements. This resulted in increased productivity of the latest generation of sand-lime brick factories due to changes in molding and material handling. The greatest savings achieved were in the area of sawing costs, which also reduced the amount of waste produced. Thirty percent less waste resulted in considerably greater yields from the same amount of raw materials used. Optimised running times as well as fully automated palleting in some areas increased the overall productivity by a factor of 2.5 compared to the previous output.
