MARCOTTE Batch replaces Legacy System & Improves Production Performance by 30%
What Specific results have you seen after the implementation of your MARCOTTE Batch?
“With the implementation of the Marcotte Batch, we’ve improved our hourly rate production by 30% compared to our previous system. The possibility to analyse and review previous batches with the Batch Playback greatly enhances our ability to optimize plant parameters and the entire batching process as a whole.
The AI feeder & real time moisture control has resulted in an amazing level of material management throughout the production cycle. Materials are consistently batched within 0.3% of target results in a very consistent concrete on site, allowing for maximum production of the paving crew during concrete paving projects.”
How did MARCOTTE Batch impact your production accuracy?
“It has shown a level of product quality and consistency, as well as raising the bar with respect to concrete paving within the Province of Manitoba Infrastructure and Transportation Dept. (MIT). Never before has the provincial MIT department measured and documented on site water/cement ratios with a standard deviation of 0.003. This new capability clearly improved our competitiveness within the market.”
How practicle do you find the MARCOTTE Batch?
“The software ease of use contributes to maintaining a high level of production and performance. For example, the substitute staff was able to maintain the same level of hourly production with no previous background experience of operating a MARCOTTE Batch. Simple as 1,2,3.
