A new Boreco Block Rotator has been purchased for use at Cardiff. The blocks are formed by pouring wet cast concrete into moulds. The block moulds are sideways on to ensure the studs and stud cavities are fully formed. The concrete blocks are allowed to set before the moulds are removed. At this stage the blocks need to be turned to the right way up.
The previous method of lifting the blocks from the moulds and turning the correct way up was using a conventional fork lift truck. This was very time consuming whereas the Boreco Block Rotator offers a much quicker and safer solution.
