Curing technology in real-time for precast concrete elements

Contiga Tinglev A/S is one of the leading precast manufacturers in Denmark. With a keen focus on innovation and the willingness to push the limits when it comes to production technologies, it came naturally to Contiga Tinglev to try out Maturix as an addition to their current production routines.

By being able to indicate the precise demolding times for selected elements, Contiga Tinglev was able to increase their production capacity by more than 15% without risking to damage their elements. In addition, all waste related to the lack of strength development or early demolding was removed, causing a reduction in waste of 35%.

The daily operation in the facility runs seamlessly across all production zones. A number of elements are selected for monitoring from the production plan, which is accessible for all relevant staff members on their computer or phone. Production teams can now easily install sensors and start production monitoring from within the production. Displays mounted in the production zones allow employees to see the status of any monitoring and plan their activities to match the curing of the concrete. This ensures that elements are only deemed finished, once they have reached the required maturity for the product type.

The implementation time across all eight production zones was less than 3 months, and the daily monitoring volume is around 20 elements. Maturix helps control production on a daily basis – but also provides statistical analysis for production planning and product development allowing Contiga Tinglev to optimize their compounds or energy usage on a day-to-day basis while receiving the results of their optimizations immediately.
