The Fleming 100 is a concrete block machine designed for on-site production. It produces either one 8 inch(20 em), two 6 inch (15cm) or three 4 inch (10 cm) building blocks on plain plywood pallets every machine cycle. The machine is easy to operate and requires no special skills.

The moulds are supplied complete with height attachments, allowing blocks of 4, 6 and 8 inch height to be produced with only one mould box. More than 200 mould designs for other popular brick sizes, decorative units, chimney blocks, paving stones, patio slabs, etc, are available to choose from. The changing of moulds is a simple task.

The high frequency vibrator system of the Fleming 100 is powered by a 3 hp electric motor (3-phase, 50-60 Hertz, 220 volt) or a petrol engine. The machine is operated manually and outputs of 100 cycles per hour can be easily achieved with 3 people under normal working conditions.

Other Fleming Equipment and Services

Fleming offers the customer all equipment, knowledge and marketing assistance needed to begin or expand into the concrete building component market. The production scale can be small, medium or large and the operation manual or fully automatic, depending on the market needs.

In addition to a range of versatile machines designed to produce all kinds of concrete components, Fleming manufactures heavy duty plant mixers, elevators, hoppers, stackers, block splitters and other equipment required in concrete plants.

As a full service company, Fleming provides initial plant layout drawings, production costs, technical mix design and an exclusive maintenance programme for the equipment installed.

Operating the Fleming 100

On account of the high output rate, it is necessary to use a large capacity concrete mixer and, as far as possible, a hopper feed system located directly above the Fleming TOO, so that the moulds can be filled with maximum efficiency. Alternatively, the mould can be filled manually by means of shovels.

A batching hopper on top of the machine is pulled over the mould before the concrete mix is poured in under vibration. The hopper is pushed back and a wooden or steel pallet is fixed on top of the levelled concrete. By pulling a lever, the mould box is rotated by 180°, such that the pallet is underneath the block.

The stripping lever on the right of the machine is then pulled down completely to strip the block from the mould box. By doing so, the stripper-head rests on the top surface of the block, pushing it down clear of the mould. The freshly moulded block can then be carefully removed to the curing stack, resting on its pallet.

The mould box is lowered and rotated into its starting position, so that the batching hopper can be pulled over it and the mould filled again to repeat the cycle as before.

The Fleming Manufacturing Co., Inc.

The production of concrete machinery began in the early 1940s, when Harry Fleming developed the first block machine, which he called the Fleming 100, as it was capable of producing 100 blocks an hour. Shortly afterwards, various larger block machines and other equipment were devoloped, so that complete block plants could be offered. Fleming has now become a leading supplier of machinery for the manufacture of landscape products and interlocking street pavers. Fleming machines have been supplied to 54 countries all around the world.
