Bauma was once again the launching platform
for innovations from the Italian company,
Metalgalante S.p.A recognised for its Carmix
mobile concrete equipment. Continued in-
vestment shows the company’s opti-
mism in the future with several new
products being introduced this year.
The most recent being the introduction of a new line
with the TrailerPump 15 - a towed development which
is designed to transport concrete even higher and fur-
ther, while remaining compatible with the company’s
entire range of self-loading cement mixers, from Carmix.
A length of 4,100 mm, with a height of 1,540 mm
and width of 1,495 mm, the TrailerPump is compact, for
fast roadability and easy to manoeuvre on the worksite,
allowing it to reach particularly high or difficult to reach
A powerful twin-cylinder piston pump with a hydrau-
lic control ensures a capacity of up to 15 m³ an hour at
a pressure of 70 bars through a 100 mm outlet. Power
is via a Volvo 3 cylinder engine rated at 23 kW.
The large hopper (240 litres) with the agitator, the
grid with a 12V electro-vibrator and the EasySpritz system
(which optimizes the pumping performance even in the
event of a small load) are key factors that help increase
productivity on the worksite. Designed to handle a
variety of mixes, it can handle gravel granularity up to

All operating parameters are available through elec-
tromechanical devices, while the pump can be controlled
through a remote control with four functions. These
features are in line with the Carmix philosophy: offering
control tools to control and monitor the work
to its users.
In recent years, the
company has de-
series of technologies studied to support the work of
professionals. Amongst these, Concrete-Mate is the
weighing system that provides high accuracy for the
preparation of concrete.
The Future is Now at Bauma 2016
During Bauma 2016, the company also introduced sev-
eral other new products including the Carmix 3.5 TT - the
first machine with Promix technology.
This small mobile batching plant is adaptable to site
requirements and is extremely easy to use. Just over 5
m long with the front loader raised, it can operate in
restricted areas. The barrel can also be rotated at 300°
to load from over 2 m on all four sides of the machine.
The short turning radius of 3,700 mm externally provides
The 7,400 kg machine has a 6,860 mm maximum
length and is 4,210 mm high (with hopper raised). Travel
width is 2,420 mm with an additional 900 mm when
loading from the side. Maximum travel speed is 25 km/h
with power delivered by a Perkins 1104 D-44 TA 4-cyl-
inder engine rated at 83 kW. Hydrostatic drive provides
4 wheel drive and steering. The model can cope with
gradients up to 30%.
First With Promix Technology
This is the first machine to feature Promix - a new digital
data monitoring system for concrete.
With this feature, the operator
can control the machine with
a constant flow of informa-
tion on the slump, temper-
ature, humidity, rotational
speed of the mixer and an
indicator showing when
