Bedeschi for Midland Brick Australia

Bedeschi‘s interest in environmental safeguard has always been one of the company’s major key points. Today, more than ever, to continue its engagement in sustainability, Bedeschi is continuously implementing its R&D skills with innovative solutions compatible with the strictest environmental standards. Furthermore, introducing hi-tech features and automated machinery have increased the product range Bedeschi can offer its customers in the brick sector. 

A few years ago, an important collaboration started between Bedeschi and Midland Brick Australia, the leading Australian company in clay bricks sector, resulting in an important contract for the supply of a new de-hacking line for standard and facing bricks. The scope of the supply includes the installation of a clay brick unloading, tilting, sorting, and re-programming of the material automatically and again loading. In addition, the machines are provided with belt conveyors on the bottom to eliminate waste.

To complete the supply, Bedeschi will install a kiln car cleaning system, a new Bedeschi model with a special alignment of smoke elements able to suck pieces of fired bricks, all completed with kiln car handling systems for movement and positioning of kiln cars.

The project is in the advanced assembling stage and will soon be ready for startup, thanks to the very close collaboration between Midland and Bedeschi teams.

For years, one of Bedeschi most significant objectives has been pursuing the goal of balancing technological innovation with the protection of the environment to achieve the most qualitative products. Recently, Bedeschi has developed a new series of solutions based on the specific guidelines imposed by Industry 4.0 regulations and perfectly complies with the current trends in automated and interconnected industrial production.

This project, in fact, contributes significantly to Bedeschi engagement in the current industrial revolution according to 4.0 industry criteria. These new solutions are integrated with smart tools for production planning and control, remote assistance, a constant update of the machine’s parameters and reporting the eventual maintenance services needed by the customer.
