The lower part of the machine consists of two units, a universal frame and a specific forming insert(1) for the production of the half slabs.
In order to achieve a high degree of production flexibility the universal frame can be used, not only with the half slab insert but with other forming inserts to produce other products.
Changing production from one element to another is a quick and simple operation and does not require the use of skilled labour.
The Forming Insert is equipped with two concrete feeders (one front and one rear) to ensure the correct supply of concrete during element casting.
The size of the half slab, as well as the type of stressing cable can be chosen depending on market requirements and the element specification required. The lower part of the slab is reinforced with prestressed cables and steel mesh to give the product structural rigidity after installation as well as during element handling and stocking.
The mechanical, hydraulic and electrical connections between the power unit and the forming inserts are by means of quick couplings to minimize downtime time when changing from one product to another.
