On April 13, 2022, we welcomed a variety of volumetric mixer owners and operators to the 2022 Concrete Academy Day. After a 2 year hiatus from the otherwise annual event, we were finally able to open our doors back to the training/certification program so many of our customers have been asking for. Concrete Academy Day is traditionally a training event on concrete technology as it relates to volumetric mixers. However, this year we conducted the VMOC (Volumetric Mixer Operator Certification) program from the VMMB.
The day featured topics such as safety, concrete technology, concrete components and their use, volumetric mixer operations and components, and customer relations. After the day of classes, many operators chose to take the VMOC exam as well to label themselves as official certified volumetric mixer operators.
Bay-Lynx would like to thank all those who attended as we push to make the volumetric mixer operators some of the most qualified members of the concrete industry.
Bay-Lynx is pleased to announce we will be hosting our annual Volumetric Concrete Academy Day on April 13th!
This year we will be offering Volumetric Mixer Operator Certification training and examination through the VVMB’s VMOC program. We’ll cover everything from concrete technology to customer relations. Following the course, you may participate in the exam to gain your volumetric mixer operator certification. Whether you are an operator looking to be certified, an owner or just in the concrete industry and would like to learn more about the volumetric industry, this is a great opportunity!
The course dives into the fundamentals of concrete, its different components, concrete admixtures, and concrete testing. You’ll than learn about operating a volumetric mixer, the components and controls of the machine, calibration, plant and job-site operations and related environmental issues. We’ll also cover the personal and job-site safety hazards involved in operating a mixer and any precautions that must be taken. Lastly, we’ll go through customer and company relations where you’ll learn the basics of customer service, dealing with customer issues and dealing with your company and fellow employees.
Classes are free to attend for educational purposes, but certification will cost $300 USD. Classes will be hosted at the Ancaster Fairgrounds, with the option to join via Zoom. Contact our sales team today to register for this year’s Concrete Academy!
Bay-Lynx was honored to once again be a part of the highly anticipated World of Concrete show, January 16-19 at the Las Vegas Convention Center. Our salesmen were pleased to meet with the crowds of prospective buyers and showcase our quality products.
Bay-Lynx was excited to proudly display the Titan volumetric mixer once again. The Titan has just celebrated its two-year anniversary, but the buzz about this new mixer hasn’t settled. With its incredible durability, light weight and long lifespan, the Titan remains quite a highlight in the concrete world!
The Hardox 450 steel’s flexible build removes unnecessary weight and maximizes payloads, accounting for over 1,350 lbs. of weight savings. Lighter components mean fuel savings, increased capacity and reduced environmental impact.
The Hardox 450 steel is some of the strongest and toughest steel in the world, able to withstand any material that operators load it up with. The hardness of the steel provides better dent scratch resistance, avoiding rust and keeping your fleet in like-new condition. As a result, this has increased the Titan’s service life to over 200% compared to that of a standard mixer.
Not only have payload and durability increased, but the resale values of construction equipment made with Hardox steel are 15% higher than their mild steel counterparts.
The Titan mixer also includes some of the most advanced mixing technology on the market. The new BatchPro 3.0 Panel and automation components on the mixer communicate with the BatchPro Connect App to control all sand, stone, cement, water and admixture contents.
BatchPro Connect is a three-tiered software solution that includes a customer order portal, a dispatch platform and an operator’s mobile application. The customer order portal can be linked to your website to allow customers to place an order online, which can then be sent directly to dispatch. The dispatch platform communicates to the mixers through the operator’s mobile application. It creates jobs and assigns them to your mixers, allowing you to track all jobs with digital copies of the tickets and receive status notifications from your operators. The operator’s mobile application simplifies all day-to-day tasks of concrete delivery. This application allows you to print tickets, collect signatures and get a faster and more accurate mixer calibration. This BatchPro Connect technology will save you time and money, while providing an exceptional customer experience!
Take the next step and learn why thousands of people around the world choose Bay-Lynx. Give us a shout. We would love to learn more about your goals and plans to provide a customized machine right for you.

The Future of Volumetric Mixers is Here with the Titan: Lighter, Stronger & Smarter
Bay-Lynx was honoured to once again attend the highly anticipated World of Concrete, February 4-7 at the Las Vegas Convention Center. More than 1,500 companies exhibited, with 60,000 industry professionals learning about the latest technology to improve their business’s operations.
Here’s a highlight reel of Bay-Lynx’s best moments at the World of Concrete:
As you can see, the Bay-Lynx exhibit was constantly bustling with crowds of prospective buyers, industry media representatives and even some intrigued competitors.
This show is always a fun place to showcase our new products, and this year we were once again one of the event’s highlights with the unveiling of a new product: the strongest volumetric mixer in the world – the Titan!
If you’re familiar with volumetric mixers you will know that they save owners significant dollars, reduce waste, and reduce time spent on the job. They meter out cement, sand and water on-site, meaning that your mixer has no time limit, no waste and no worries. Whatever amount of concrete you need for your project, a volumetric mixer can deliver.
The freshly unveiled Titan has all of the benefits of a standard volumetric mixer, and so much more.
The Titan has a new design that maximizes Hardox® 450 steel, a Swedish steel known for its flexible build that removes unnecessary weight and maximizes payloads. Lighter components mean fewer trips to the gas station, more money in your pocket and reduced environmental impact.
We’ve chosen the strongest and toughest steel in the world – Hardox® 450 steel – to withstand anything that operators can throw at it, helping to double the service life of our competitors’ standard steel mixers. Harder steel also provides better dent scratch resistance, avoiding rust and keeping your fleet in like-new condition longer.
The innovative BatchPro 3.0 Operator’s Panel allows for a completely automated mixer set-up process, and helps you to communicate directly with dispatch via BatchPro Connect software.
Our all-in-one operator and fleet management software comes standard with our volumetric mixers, and makes hundreds of time-consuming processes faster and easier through three interactive interfaces.
The mobile app takes on operational tasks:
The dispatch platform helps to manage your fleet, and communicate with your crews:
The customer order portal makes getting details easier:
Our Ultralite Plus volumetric mixer was unveiled last year, and took the ‘World’ by storm with its stunning all-aluminum design for enhanced weight savings. Combined with our cyclone hydraulic oil reservoir, lightweight auger and other features, the Ultralite Plus retains its crown as the lightest mixer on the market allowing the largest payload – up to eight cubic metres – with consistency superior to any other!
