Description:
MOBILE BRICK MAKING MACHINE

TECHNICAL FIELD

[01] The present disclosure relates to the field of making shaped articles. In particular, the present disclosure pertains to a simple and efficient mobile brick-making machine.

BACKGROUND

[02] Background description includes information that may be useful in understanding the present invention. It is not an admission that any of the information provided herein is prior art or relevant to the presently claimed invention, or that any publication specifically or implicitly referenced is prior art.

[03] The bricks are basic building block of buildings in most of the countries around globe. Hence, the bricks are required in huge numbers. As result construction industries have boomed up in the past and will increase with the upcoming years. Brick/block is one of the main ingredients required in this industry. Bricks are mostly made manually and machine-made bricks hardly constitute 2% of total production of bricks.

[04] This is so because conventional brick making machines require substantial man power to complete the process by hand or manually. The brick-kiln’s workers mold raw material into the shape of bricks. The molding requires processing of raw materials to make it in moldable form and then need to compress in quality brick shape. The molded raw materials are then laid down to production area by the labors manually. The complete process is manualand high labor intensive. Hence the labor faces problem of fatigue daily. Generally, a worker can mold 1000- 1100 bricks in maximum capacity in a day.lt creates shortage of worker in the industry. Further, these worker get specialization from their uneducated family as a skill gift to them and these specialize skill doesn’t give them opportunity to flourish with prosperity to their coming generation.Another disadvantage of the presently used brick makingmachines is that theydo not have their own in-built mixture compartment, and therefore, they require prepared raw material for making bricks. The bricks made by such machines do not use the wet raw material and the raw material is hard so the clinch (base) is not strong and they make a sound of breaking up.

[05] Efforts have been made in past to overcome the above stated problems of the conventional bricks making machines. For example, a conventional mobile brick making machine is provided which includes a chassis; a cabin for an operator of the machine to sit and drive the machine; a pair of front wheels and a pair of rear wheels mounted on the chassis through their respective axles; a raw material stock compartment to hold raw material for making bricks; and a roller and die assembly that includes a roller wheel; and a die made up of a plurality of circumferentially arranged brick frames, the plurality of circumferentially arranged brick frames concentrically fixed to the roller wheel. The raw material stored in the raw material stock compartment is moved to the brick frames using a set of fourworms, each driven by a gear motor. These worms includetwo blade/ring worms that are fitted in the raw material stock compartment, to mix the raw material being moved towards the front side of the raw material stock compartment, a raw material stock worm arranged in longitudinal direction at bottom of the raw material stock compartment to move raw material towards front side to a main worm, the main worm that carries raw material delivered by the raw material stock worm in lateral direction, deliver the raw material to the brick frames which are fitted in the die assembly. However, the conventional mobile brick making machine includes multiple components, such as four worms to transport the raw material that require multiple gear and motors arrangementmakes the machine complex.

[06] There is therefore a need for a simple and cost-effectivemachine which can make the work easier, and does not waste raw material. This will remove the need of excess manpower; the material is not wasted and desired numbers of bricks are made.

[07] As used in the description herein and throughout the claims that follow, the meaning of “a,” “an,” and “the” includes plural reference unless the context clearly dictates otherwise. Also, as used in the description herein, the meaning of “in” includes “in” and “on” unless the context clearly dictates otherwise.

[08] The recitation of ranges of values herein is merely intended to serve as a shorthand method of referring individually to each separate value falling within the range. Unless otherwise indicated herein, each individual value is incorporated into the specification as if it were individually recited herein. All methods described herein can be performed in any suitable order unless otherwise indicated herein or otherwise clearly contradicted by context. The use of any and all examples, or exemplary language (e.g. “such as”) provided with respect to certain embodiments herein is intended merely to better illuminate the invention and does not pose a limitation on the scope of the invention otherwise claimed. No language in the specification should be construed as indicating any non-claimed element essential to the practice of the invention.

[09] Groupings of alternative elements or embodiments of the invention disclosed herein are not to be construed as limitations. Each group member can be referred to and claimed individually or in any combination with other members of the group or other elements found herein. One or more members of a group can be included in, or deleted from, a group for reasons of convenience and/or patentability. When any such inclusion or deletion occurs, the specification is herein deemed to contain the group as modified thus fulfilling the written description of all groups used in the appended claims.
