The History of Block Machine


The development of brick machine has a long history.
The first cement block was manufactured in 1882. Concrete blocks are now manufactured with a block machine that molds the wet concrete mix into standard shapes.
Harmon Palmer invented the hollow concrete block machine in 1900. His machine used molds with removable cores and adjustable sides, principles that are still used in modern machines. Palmer made improvements, including collapsible mold sides that facilitated the removal of finished blocks. In 1909, Herman Besser invented a power tamper for compressing the concrete in the block machines’ molds, allowing for more consistent quality by eliminating hand tamping. In 1939 Besser’s company introduced vibration tamping, which further improved quality while reducing wear on the tamping apparatus.
