CONEXPO 2017: the new Carmix 3500 TC breaks with convention in the self-loading concrete mixer world
In Germany, on the occasion of its 40th anniversary, once again, the company based in the province of Venice has revolutionised the self-loading concrete mixer world with a model intended to break with convention. For Carmix, the trade show in Las Vegas is an essential event for continuing its path of development in Latin American markets, which consider Conexpo a benchmark trade show. In recent years, the company has continuously strengthened its presence in the most traditional markets of South America. Now, also thanks to an agreement with Caterpillar, Metalgalante is consolidating its own market in Central America, where Carmix is one of the strengths of the CAT Rental Store. Due to its high performance, reliability and, above all, user-friendliness and versatility, Carmix models are an excellent solution for rental, since they can produce high-quality concrete at a low cost and in any situation.
Carmix 3500 TC, a real mobile concrete mixer
The new Carmix 3500 TC is a further development that has made Carmix a real mobile concrete mixer. The new machine can be recognised at a glance thanks to its innovative design with rounded lines, although its technological core is what really makes all the difference.
A new electronic dosing system for ingredients is standard supplied for this model: the Concrete Mate allows easy and intuitive creation and management of up to 20 mix-designs with 99 different components, taking into account the moisture content of the materials involved. Furthermore, on this model Carmix has introduced Promix: a genuine laboratory, which, by means of a stainless steel probe in the concrete mixer, allows the operator to instantly control data concerning concrete as follows: Slump, temperature, volume, etc. It can be considered a real mobile concrete mixer, since it can be fitted with an automatic dosing system for additives for preparing any type of concrete required.
Greater focus on the North American market
This year, in addition to traditionally focusing its attention on the Latin America market, Carmix intends to develop its growing interest in the North American market. Due to their dimensions and distances, Canada and especially the USA offer excellent potential for these products with a multitude of applications, high quality and lack of competitors in North America.
