Coretex and Marcotte Systems Strike Technology Partnership at NRMCA
At NRMCA’s Concrete Works show earlier this month, Coretex and Marcotte Systems announced a technology integration to increase productivity and reduce costs for ready-mix and aggregate operations.
“The strength of our commitment to our clients is reflected in product innovation and the strategic partnerships we establish,” said Dean Marris, EVP North America of Coretex. “The technology alliance with Marcotte will provide our mutual customers with efficiencies and consistent product quality that has never been seen before in the ready-mix industry.”
The Coretex 360 construction solution provides dispatchers with granular, real-time visibility into the location, behavior and status of a construction supply operation. The system contains a complete set of HD sensors specifically designed for use in a ready-mix environment, including bowl/drum rotation, water-added, load switch for aggregate and precise integrated- statusing.
Marcotte Systems delivers a field-proven suite of performance solutions. Marcotte CONTROL adjusts the required quantity of each batch constituent, in real-time during batch execution, while preserving key ratios and volumetric yield. The batch mix is automatically fine-tuned during the process. All parameters such as local material properties, density, absorption, granularity, moisture and temperature are used to smart-balance mixes.
“By combining Coretex’s IoT platform with advanced tracking, integrated cameras, engine management and service data with Marcotte Systems’ comprehensive process control and automation, dispatching software and batching systems, we have redefined the meaning of an end-to-end construction solution,” said Alexandre Leblond, Global VP Sales of Marcotte Systems.
The integrated product is currently on trial at ready-mix concrete sites and will be available during the first quarter of 2019.
