Carmix: A concrete solution

Carmix is equipped to solve a variety of concrete challenges for remote sites and difficult-to-access locations. Find out how these specialist Italian-made machines can streamline your next project.

For almost 50 years, Carmix has been a leading provider of specialised machinery to the concrete industry. The Italian brand has made its name in providing innovative solutions for concrete challenges in remote sites and difficult-to-access locations.

Pilecom Equipment has more than 20 years’ experience dealing specialist equipment to a range of industries, and has been the exclusive Australian distributor for Carmix since 2018. Since then, the business has provided tailored solutions for a series of logistically challenging projects.

Pilecom Equipment also offers cement handling options, such as the Carmix Bagger.

These have included:

  • Batching stabilised sand for a remote solar farm
  • Mixing concrete on a Pacific Island
  • Batching kerb concrete on Tiwi Island
  • Mixing stabilised fill for a roads project in remote South Australia
  • Batching concrete for a housing project in remote NT Indigenous regions
  • Transporting concrete up steep inclines for a government facility in Karratha
  • Transporting concrete for a Telecom tower base in NSW
  • Batching various structural concrete for mine sites in the Goldfields WA
  • Batching 1-cubic-metre precast plank concrete in a small precast factory
  • Transporting concrete in tunnels for cross passages.

Carmix offers six models of 4×4 rough terrain models, ranging from the small 1-cubic-metre Carmix One to the larger Carmix 5.5XL. Each model is specifically built to match a certain concrete mix demand. Combined with three models of cement handling equipment, ranging from 3-tonne bulk bag hopper to 45-tonne horizontal silos, the daily productions can range from 10 cubic metres per day to 100 cubic metres per day.

Stocking and ordering units that match Australian contractor needs has been a challenge that Pilecom Equipment’s Managing Director and Shareholder, Boyd Cousins, has taken up with great enthusiasm. He says anticipating customers’ needs is crucial.

“Having stock available is vitally important,” he says. “But having the unit to match the particular project is the real juggling act.”

Boyd says self-mixing concrete also requires addressing the issue of cement supply. For this, Pilecom Equipment stocks three options for self-loading:

  • 20kg bags
  • 1000kg bulk bags
  • 25/28-tonne bulk tanker cement.

“In planning stock levels, we also consider providing customers with cement handling options,” Boyd says.

To address this, Pilecom Equipment has the following models in stock:

  • 3-tonne bulker bagger screw feed hoppers (with Honda Engine – no generator)
  • 45-tonne horizontal silos.

Both options are fitted with load cells for constant display of the product in the silo and have the option for remote control ON/OFF operation for ease of discharge.

Boyd says the market also demands the availability of rental units, which presents another challenge for which Pilecom Equipment is actively working towards a solution.

“Pilecom Equipment takes pride in our operations and construction division, which owns and uses the Carmix equipment,” Boyd says. “This allows us to offer a more detailed and specific commissioning and handover program, including training for operators and maintenance staff of customers.”

Boyd says this dedication to helping customers with complete cement handling needs is summed up by Pilecom Equipment’s motto: “We don’t just sell equipment – we sell a concrete solution.”
