The plant gives building material suppliers an opportunity to supply their customers, such as small professional buyers or DIYers, in a flexible manner. Due to the adjustable concrete discharge, the concrete can be collected by anything from small trailers right up to large truck mixers.
The principle is based on the fact that the end customer can select their individually required quantity of concrete from a range of different concrete and screed types from 0.15m³. This enables the operating company of the self-service concrete plant to meet all individual customer requirements. The entire vehicle is then positioned under the plant. The mixing process can be started easily and conveniently by QR-code. Within the next two to three minutes, the fresh concrete is delivered directly into the trailer or truck mixer.
This elaborate concept is rounded off with criteria that are crucial for the operating company in terms of competition: the supply of small quantities of 0.15 to 2m³, as well as customer-friendly opening hours, on weekdays and also on Saturdays, can be implemented without any problems thanks to the high degree of automation of the self-service concrete plant. In addition, during the plant’s development, Liebherr attached great importance to ensuring it had a high degree of mobility. As such, the self-service concrete plant is designed so that both containers can be transported with only one truck. This should avoid lengthy authorisation procedures. The completed plant requires a floor space of around 100m².
Overall, Liebherr says the self-service concrete plant offers building material dealers or gravel pit/quarry pit operators the ideal opportunity to offer their customers an additional service offering and at the same time further expand their unique selling points.
