The WF Wet casting Slipformer consists of a main machine on which is mounted a mould specific to the element being produced.
In order to achieve a high degree of production flexibility the main machine can be used, not only for Inverted I-Beams but for the production of other elements by using different moulds(1).
Changing production from one element to another is a quick and simple operation and does not require the use of skilled labour.
Where necessary the mould may be equipped with special accessories capable of giving the elements additional features without interrupting the casting process. These may include:
The size of the element, as well as the type of stressing cable, can be chosen depending on market requirements and the element specification required.
The mechanical, hydraulic and electrical connections between the machine and the mould are made with quick couplings to minimize downtime time when changing from one product to another.
