Maturix® Precast

Real-time monitoring of your precast productions

Optimize your production

Maturix provides you with a world-class production control system that focuses on real-time calculation of the strength and maturity of each of your elements. A complex and comprehensive task is thereby extremely simplified. Nonetheless, Maturix is designed to be easily integrated with your existing plant operations.

Using the industry-standard K-Thermocouple to measure the temperature history of your concrete elements, our wireless transmitters send the data directly to the cloud-without the need for Wi-Fi or network connection.

The data is transmitted every 10 minutes and analyzed immediately. Once the analysis is complete, all devices (smart phones, computers, and production dashboards) will be updated with the latest results and predictions. When an element reaches the target maturity, the dashboards will give green light to demold the element and the Maturix transmitter can be used again.

Increase capacity

Save time

Gain insight

Predict time of demolding

Stop wasting time.
Identify slow productions.

Controlling the curing phase of a precast element is a complex task – and slight variations in heat or climate can prolong or shorten the curing time.

To minimize waste, capacity is sacrificed by adding time as safety margins to the curing process.

Maturix monitors the maturity of any element in real-time, so the exact curing time can be predicted.

You are guaranteed never to waste time on elements that are ready faster than expected – or throw away elements with a slow strength development due to (production) defects or faults.

Assure your quality

Documenting quality is essential to improving processes and understanding your own production. Monitoring an element is a labour-intensive process, where the installation of the transmitters, retrieving the data loggers, transferring the data to a computer and analysing the data takes the better part of a day.

With Maturix as an integrated part of your processes, monitoring an element takes less than a minute per element. All data is transferred wirelessly and analysed automatically, giving you instant insight or alarms when concerns arise. You end up with top-rank documentation and essentially a better product for your customers.

Analytics & Statistics

Optimization and efficiency is a daily headline in order to stay competitive. Maturix provides analysis and statistics about your facility and helps you optimize your production every day.

  • Are you using too much heat or not enough?
  • Could you improve your compounds to cure faster?
  • Or should it be slower and cheaper?

Since monitoring occurs on a daily basis, see the results of your optimizations immediately. The level of production insight provided by Maturix also allows you to make the right decisions about labour shifts, capacity usage, planning and investments.

Reduce your costs

By creating visibility into the curing process, knowing the precise demolding time, and making the workforce self-driven, we are able to increase the production capacity of a facility by up to 15%, while reducing waste by 35% (based on figures from current customers). At the same time, the risk of human errors is avoided.

This can be used to either increase manufacturing output or reduce costs of manufacturing while maintaining the same output. As a full-service solution Maturix offers everything required for monitoring an element.

Alarms

Be in control by using alarms. Receive a text message when the temperature, maturity, or strength of your concrete elements exceeds a set value.

Production Plan

Add information about the applicable concrete elements as entries in advance. When you are ready, it takes less than a minute to start the monitoring.

Analytics and Statistics

Get more insight about your production. See the average curing time, number of elements monitored, daily capacity usage, spot differences, and much more.

Data Editor

Adjust the start and finish time or change the chosen transmitter, workstation, or stop mode to be in full control of the data and ensure the most correct results.

Compounds

Save the calibration data from each of your concrete mixtures (the strength-maturity relationship and target strength required for demolding) to use again and again.

Production Climate

Include information about the production climate as part of the quality reports with data from our wireless temperature and humidity sensors.

Facility Overview

Map your production facility with zones and workstations to get a beneficial visual representation of where the monitoring is currently taking place.

Global Network

The transmitters send data using Sigfox, the world’s leading IoT connectivity service. The network uses a wide-reaching signal that passes through solid objects and concrete.

Access Anywhere

The software is accessible from any device (computer, tablet, mobile, etc.) that is connected to the Internet. See the data and track the progress from anywhere.

Multiple Users

Provide access to the software to all the different relevant people within your organization – with each their own account and login.

Curing Time Estimation

Through detailed analysis of the data, Maturix constantly estimates the curing time and predicts the exact finish time for demolding of your concrete elements.

Type K thermocouple

Measure using the most common type of thermocouple. When the target strength has been reached, cut the thermocouple, and simply reuse the Orbit K transmitter.
