What is a Keystone Machine?
From the beginning of time, urban areas have been settlements with a dense human population. Urban areas are distinguished from rural areas by their abundance of transport services, public spaces, and opportunities. Since walkways and vehicular roads should be designed in accordance with the city’s layout, the type of stone used is chosen accordingly. Thus, various types of stone have been used in the construction of cities throughout history, and rocky roads were commonly selected in the past as they are quite durable. Today, numerous types of stones or pavers are preferred on urban roads and pavements, but keystones and interlocking pavers are the most common industrial stones.
Keystone is manufactured by natural aggregates in facilities called a concrete paving machine. Concrete paving machines are able to produce paving stones in varied shapes and sizes. These manufacturing plants can be designed in several types, such as semi-automated paving stone machines and fully automatic paving stone machines. Fully automatic interlocking parquet machines apply all production steps automatically, whereas semi-automatic interlocking paving stone machines apply some manufacturing procedures automatically and others manually.
Interlocking Paving Machine
Keystone is another name for interlocking paver. Interlocking pavers are a type of floor covering that has an unique shape. In keystone manufacturing, several components are required which are are small pieces of stone (aggregate), cement, and water. A mortar is made by combining aggregate, cement, and water in specific quantities. A paving machine is then used to pour the mortar into molds. Molds are used to shape concrete mortar and come in a variety of forms and sizes. Mold selection is chosen based on the desired shape of the paving stone.
After the prepared concrete mortar is poured into the molds, it proceeds through a series of steps. The first stage is vibration, which is applied to the mortar that has been formed in the molds. Air bubbles in the concrete are eliminated during the vibration step. The material is compressed after the vibration process by pressing the mortar into the molds. As a result, more robust and high-strength products are made. After all processes are finished, the molds are moved to a different location. Consequently, the interlocking paving stones are let to dry.
Where is Keystone Used?
Keystone is a stone that may be used in a multiple ways. It promotes integrity in the area where it is utilized because of its interlocking structure. With these stones that match and lock each other, a highly solid floor is formed. It is currently one of the most popular types of flooring. New roads and public spaces are continuously being developed, especially in areas where urbanization is increasing. As a result, the need for keystone rises. Keystone is most commonly used in the following areas:
- Constructing a pedestrian walkway
- Public areas such as parks
- Roadway design
- Walking paths
- Pavement design
- Vehicle parking
- Shopping center parking lot and garden
- Landscape design and roadways around manufacturing plants
- Roads that are difficult to lay asphalt on
