Minnich Highlights Concrete Vibration Innovations at WOC
Minnich Manufacturing showcased its latest concrete vibration solutions at World of Concrete 2019. The manufacturer of concrete dowel pin drills, concrete vibrators and vibrator monitoring systems displayed the Stinger concrete electric flex shaft vibrator, M-Box high cycle vibration control solution, and Auto Vibe paving vibrator monitoring systems in Las Vegas.
“At Minnich, we’re dedicated to helping concrete contractors and concrete paving superintendents maximize quality,” said Rob Minnich, vice president of marketing for Minnich Manufacturing. “We were excited to display our concrete vibration innovations at the show, and will continue to bring products to the industry that support the findings of concrete research facilities across the country.”
The Minnich Stinger electric flex shaft concrete vibrator is a 6.5 kg double-insulated universal motor that can drive the full line of Minnich vibrator shafts and heads from 19 mm (¾’’) to 63.5 mm (2½’’). Available in a 15 A (115 V) version, it offers a more compatible speed range of 11,000 to 13,000 vibrations per minute (vpm) to meet today’s concrete placement challenges.
The Minnich M-Box high cycle vibration control solution is an innovative control speed high-cycle power converter that enables high-cycle vibrator operators to control the speed/vibrations per minute (VPM) of up to 2 vibrators. The M-Box minimizes time and cost associated with patching structural concrete surface blemishes caused by excessive vibrator speeds.
The Minnich Auto Vibe vibrator monitoring systems for paving machines can monitor, control and program hydraulic vibrator speeds during the paving process for superior concrete surface results.
The Auto Vibe II monitors up to 62 hydraulic vibrators during the paving process, recording and displaying real-time data that can be used to ensure proper vibrator operation.
The Auto Vibe III has the added feature of controlling and maintaining the vibrator vibrations per minute (VPM) at the monitor instead of at the manifold. Once the VPM speed is set, the monitor communicates with the manifold and automatically makes adjustments to maintain desired speeds.
Minnich also displayed its dust collection system for on-grade, on-slab, machine- mounted and utility dowel pin drills at the show. The Minnich dust collection system meets the requirements for dowel pin drills found in Table 1 of the OSHA final respirable crystalline silica standard when used with an appropriate filter.
