The structure of the ACM company has changed significantly in the process of developing the ball mill ACM 105SP for the State Rail contract. Its design department now has a staff of five, and there are in-house staff and facilities to handle the electronics and programming required for the control systems, as well to manage the traditional mechanical and hydraulics areas.Expertise in composites built-up has-been as extensive use is made of these for insulating vehicles working with or near power. The in-house design team has been working on this machine for some time now and everyone is delighted with the final results. Mark Lappin, Managing Director states, This machine offers customers another option from our mobile batch plant range. As with all of Rapid s machinery, most of the components used are British made which guarantee the machine s longevity. The extra thick chill cast tiles in the mixing chamber ensure that it is one of the highest quality mixers on the market today. The plant is fully mobile with the stairs and access walkways around mixer, folding and dismantling for transport purposes.

It is therefore suitable for short-term cone Crusher projects or projects requiring on – site mixing. It boasts four 10 m 3 aggregate bins with pneumatic discharge doors and to 1000mm Weighing Belt which transports the material to the mixer. It CAN bus communication systems are used for ease of control and diagnostics, and these link with the engine management and transmission systems for full control. ACM can monitor remotely, providing speedy support regardless factory equipment of the machine s location. A 50 m test track has been set up at the Melbourne factory, and this includes a banked section as the Rail Corp machine has a hydraulic levelling feature for use on superelevated track. The weigh hopper cement 1750kg comes with aeration, pneumatic vibrator and to pneumatic butterfly valve outlet. The twin additive meters contain 2 pumps with the option of adding more additive meters if required. ACM recognises that different track operators can have different requirements, and the in-house expertise allows concepts to be developed quickly.

Quality control/product support manager Ben Potter said that it is possible to produce a concept drawing in as little as a month. The Rapid Twin Shaft mixer is at the heart of This new mobile batching plant. The Transbatch 100 houses the RT3000 Twin Shaft (3 m 3 output) and the Transbatch 60 comes with a RT1500 Twin Shaft (1.5m3 output). Both mixers feature extra thick chill cast tiles and mixing tools. By incorporating the Rapid Twin Shaft mixer, the plant can boast a high batch output, allowing the plant owner the advantage of offering quick turnaround to customers. The mixer also has hinged access covers and a hydraulic discharge door for easy maintenance and discharge.
