Efficient concrete production

Giatec says that its new SmartMix package is a mix management, automated mix analytics, and reporting software. This is said to allow producers to optimise their concrete mixes in real time to reduce cement usage and mix cost.

Using conventional systems, ready-mix concrete producers design concrete mixes based on limited data and visibility into the quality variations of raw materials and external factors. This leads to overdesigning the concrete mixture by adding excess cement to prevent potential performance issues.  

But Giatec says that its proprietary AI algorithm has been developed for concrete testing. using the SmartMix Marcotte MBatch integration, concrete producers can optimise concrete mixtures, reduce cement usage, predict concrete properties, and proactively detect anomalies in concrete performance and testing. This will allow for a reduction in CO2 emissions and mix costs by up to 20%.
