Jindal Bricks, a leading manufacturer of machine-made bricks, unglazed ceramic cladding tiles, brick pavers, and hollow blocks in India, has purchased a new freymatic brick cutting machine. The new machine, which cost Rs 4 crore, will help increase production rate by 60-70 percent and provide a variety of utilitarian benefits for both the brand and its customers. Freymatic AG, a pioneering manufacturer of machinery and equipment based in Switzerland, developed the cutting-edge machine and the technology it employs.
The freymatic cutter, which is regarded as one of the best in the world in the construction industry, has been installed in Jindal’s extrusion section. In addition to having a much higher production rate, it also has incredible precision and accuracy, which helps avoid undulated edges in bricks when cutting, as opposed to traditional ones. This aids in the production of high-quality bricks with sharp and perfectly clean edges and corners that retain their rectangularity while being perfectly uniform in shape and dimensions.
To cut bricks and other building components, traditional cutters apply high pressure to the extruded block. When making bricks, the clay is softened by adding water to make a soft dough that can be moulded into the desired shape. This dough is then formed into a long block that will eventually be separated into individual bricks with the required holes, face shapes, and other features. After that, the cutting machine separates them into individual bricks, which are then dried and baked in the brick kiln.
Because the force is not evenly distributed when conventional cutters are used, the high pressure can cause inward bends, ridges, and contortions on the surface and along the edges. The freymatic cutter, on the other hand, uses consistent pressure throughout its cutting section and has self-cleaning capabilities to prevent residue from interfering with the next batch.
“The installation of the freymatic cutter is a key highlight for Jindal Bricks, as it will completely transform both the nature and quality of our brick production,” said Lakshay Jindal, director and CMO of Jindal Bricks. Furthermore, the machine’s high precision will aid in improving the quality of our wide range of extruded products, including roof tiles, hollow blocks, and more. These factors, combined with the high efficiency and 60-70 percent increased production rate, will enable us to provide our customers with the highest quality products that are both attractive and functional.”
