How Can Self Loading Concrete Mixer in Indonesia Reduce the Costs of Concrete Production?

However, several other influencing factors can be controlled and reduced through some methods. For example, the labor costs and transportation costs can be reduced by means of using an advanced concrete mixing equipment – self loading concrete mixer. As an efficient concrete production equipment, the self loading concrete mixer Indonesia has advanced production technology, which can improve mixing efficiency and reduce production costs.

1. It can reduce the cost of purchasing other equipment

A self loading concrete mixer for sale in Indonesia is equivalent to a three-in-one machine. It intergrates the characteristics and advantages of a wheel loader, a concrete mixer, and a concrete mixer truck. At the same time, a self concrete mixer Indonesia has self-loading, self-mixing, self-transporting, and self-unloading functions in one. So, By purchasing a self-loading truck, you will no longer need to purchase a wheel loader, a concrete mixer, and a concrete mixer truck if you purchase a self-loading mixer Indonesia. One self loading concrete mixer is enough to meet your requirement for loading cement and aggregate, mixing all the mixture, and transporting and discharging the ready mix concrete.

However, the ordinary concrete mixers in Indonesia have only one rotating mixing tank, which is only responsible for mixing concrete. The feeding and unloading work requires the help of other equipment. For example, concrete mixers are often paired with a wheel loader to feed materials (cement, aggregate, water), and a concrete mixer truck to complete transportation and unloading work. Therefore, if you plan to use a regular concrete mixer, you will have to buy another wheel loader and a concrete mixing truck.

2. It can reduce concrete transportation costs

The mixer beton self-loading has a truck chassis with four-wheel steering, and can be driven to any location by the driver. After the concrete is mixed in the mixing tank, the angle of its mixing tank can be adjusted within 270 degrees, and the finished concrete can be poured directly to the corresponding construction point. The transportation and unloading of the ready mix concrete can be completed without the need for other equipment or labor.

Compared with a concrete batching plant, you need to purchase some concrete mixer trucks to transport the ready-mixed concrete from the batch plants to the construction sites. A self loading mobile beton mixer truck can save the transportation time and cost. Once the concrete mixing is completed, on-site transportation and unloading can be achieved.

3. It can reduce labor costs

The self loading concrete mixer Indonesia is equpped with a fully automatic control system. 1 worker is enough to command and operate the self loading concrete mixer truck. The main switch is set up in the cab, so the driver can easily control the whole machine to self-load and self-weigh the cement or aggregates, self-supply the water, self-mix all the mixture, self-convey and discharge the concrete on your sites. With the outputs of up to 26 cubic meters per hour, self loading concrete mixer in Indonesia is suitable for small projects in various areas.

  • Save about 2 workers to load cement or aggregates: The self concrete mixer Indonesia has a self-loading front bucket and can automatically load and weigh raw materials, including cement and aggregate, through a front bucket. Compared with other equipment, such as traditional concrete mixers, self-loading mixers will not require additional labor to load materials, which will save you 2 labor costs.

There are some factors that may influence the cost of concrete production, and you should understand them so that you will realize how useful our self loading mixers are.

5 Major Factors May Affect the Costs of Concrete Production

There are mainly 5 factors that may influence the total costs of concrete production.

Raw Material Cost

The production of concrete requires the purchase of three major raw materials: cement, construction aggregates, and water.

  1. Cement: Cement is one of the main components of concrete, and its price has an important impact on the cost of concrete production.
  2. Aggregate: Both of coarse aggregate (such as gravel) and fine aggregate (such as sand) are granular materials in concrete and have an impact on the mechanical properties and cost of concrete.
  3. Water: Water is the mixing medium in concrete, and its quality and dosage have an impact on the strength and durability of concrete. The production of concrete requires a continuous supply of water. Therefore, the cost of water will also affect the production cost of concrete.

Concrete Additives Cost

  • Chemical additives: Such as water reducing agents, reinforcing agents and waterproofing agents used to improve the workability, strength and durability of concrete. The amount of additives such as water reducing agent will also affect the cost of concrete production.
  • Mineral admixtures: We usually use some fly ash and slag powder to replace part of the cement, thereby to reduce costs and reduce environmental impact.

Cost of Purchasing Equipment

The production of concrete requires the help of some equipment. Therefore, you need to buy some concrete batching and mixing machines before starting your concrete production. What equipment can be used for concrete production? There are three main types of equipment used to produce concrete on the market: concrete batching plants, concrete mixers, and mobile self-loading concrete mixers.

Transportation Cost

Transportation costs mainly include two aspects:

  1. Raw Material Transportation Cost: The cost of transporting cement, aggregate and other raw materials from the silos to the concrete mixing equipment usually includes the cost of equipment and labor costs. The equipment cost usually used here refers to the purchase of the wheel loaders and the cost of hiring workers to drive the loaders.
  2. Finished Concrete Transportation Cost: The cost of transporting concrete from the concrete mixing equipment to the construction site mainly refers to the operating costs for concrete mixer trucks.

Labor Costs:

In order to complete the loading, mixing, unloading, transportation, pouring and other processes in the sites, a lot of workers are often required. The amount of labor greatly affects the cost of concrete production.

construction projects need many labor costs

Among the above influencing factors, some costs are determined by market fluctuations and supply and demand relationships, such as the price of cement and the price of water reducing agent. These costs are usually difficult to control.

In genearl, using a self loading mixer in Indonesia is a very useful choice to save the costs of concrete production in most of construction projects, including road paving construction, self-built house construction, port construction, trestle projects, and so on.
