Forming insert used for the production of solid slabs is the same as that used for the production of hollow core slabs. The only difference is that the moulding tubes, that make the voids, are removed.
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 forming insert is also equipped with a smoothing device to smooth the top of the element ensuring an accurate surface finish.
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.
(1)For solid slabs up to 65mm it is recommended that steel mesh also be used with the prestressing cables to ensure rigidity during transport and stocking.
