Axsis gets truckin’

Axsis is a cooperative program from Essroc and Axim Italcementi Group that combines Essroc’s cement capabilities with Axim’s admixture science and product line, providing an integrated resource for concrete and masonry technology and products.

The Axsis Team draws on its extensive product knowledge, experience and industry certifications to tackle complex material-related problems, developing solutions specifically for a customer’s specific project, business and mix.

The Axsis program is bolstered by Mobile Technology Units, the first of which recently debuted in the United States.

The Mobile Technology Unit is a 52-foot gooseneck trailer and truck that provides on-site technical assistance to customers. The mobile concrete and masonry laboratory assists in the development of mix designs and their subsequent trials, troubleshoots concrete problems, and delivers innovative and new cement, masonry and concrete technologies. It is equipped to perform non-destructive and durability tests on materials such as chemical admixtures, aggregates, cements, fillers and mineral admixtures, as well as service applications in concrete and masonry. A full array of high-tech testing equipment is complemented by a diesel generator and self-leveling stands. The lab can test cement-admixture compatibility, design concrete for an extended set time, produce self-consolidating concrete with a shrinkage-compensating admixture, and perform C-270 and C-780 testing properly in the field to ensure accurate results, to offer just a few examples.

The Axsis Mobile Tech Unit is operated by Regional Technology Managers, backed by technical service representatives. The first United States unit will serve the Midwest and East Coast. Similar units are already in operation in Italy and France.
