With more than 130 Pot Ramming Machines (PRM) in operation, Mecfor has acquired the knowledge and expertise of this historically handmade critical task. The result is a proven procedure and ramming settings that deliver unparalleled compaction results.
You are using cold, warm or hot paste, Mecfor’s PRM will:
Improves seal quality and makes them more uniform thanks to the many tools available (compatible with pneumatic or electrical version);
Presents a user-friendly display of the interface with a remote control for remote operations;
Designed for the simplest and fastest connection speeding up field installation and minimizing production interruptions;
Provides simplified access to components for easier maintenance;
Aim for better ergonomics of the work area by adequate lighting, emergency stop buttons, vibration-free operation transmitted to the operator;
Is compatible with all types of pots;
Moves stably, autonomously and rectilinearly;
Improves the life and performance of the pots;
Guarantees proven compaction performance, especially for inclined joints;
Ensures high efficiency of vibration compaction, even for small joints, by applying paste to the vertical side of the cathode;
Does not accumulate paste in Mecfor tools or create a curb effect;
Compact perfectly and reproducibly thanks to all programmable variables such as: force, frequency and time.
Hydraulic actuated cylinders with multiple angles for optimum ramming;
Comprehensible configuration of the electrical cabinet offering a USB key slot;
Real-time pressure measurement, frequency and compaction for each layer for better historic and traceability (optional databox);
Large loading capacity of the paste feeder (optional) which keeps the paste at the right temperature and can pour automatically into the pots.
