Wet Casting Series WF

The new generation of series WF Wet Casting machines represent the state of the art in the production of prestressed concrete products with special attributes such as exposed wire and a corrugated upper surface.
The NORDIMPIANTI Wet Casting machines offer a cost-effective solution for companies that are looking for a flexible approach to produce hollow core slabs, solid slabs, inverted T-Beams, lintels that require these special attributes.
The WF Wet Casting machine casts elements in a single phase using the vibration method without the need for formworks. To start production of a different element it is only necessary to change the finishing mould mounted on the machine. This is a quick and straight forward operation. Standard heights range from 60 mm to 300 mm while the width can be up to 1200 mm.

Functionality

Read more +

Concrete is delivered from the auxiliary hopper (1) to the Wet Casting machine’s main hopper (2).

It then falls by gravity directly onto the bed passing through the vibrating mould (3).

The concrete is delivered from the auxilary hopper to the main hopper in order to ensure a constant gravitational concrete pressure in the machine.

The weight of the concrete in the main hopper and the vibration moves the concrete through the finishing mould (4) which gives the final profile to the element.

The vibrating mould is equipped with 2 vibration motors (5) that are synchronized to the same speed and are inverter controlled.


Description

NORDIMPIANTI’s wf Wet Casting machine is made up of 2 main units: the machine itself and an interchangeable element-specific finishing mould.
Finishing Mould

Finishing Mould

The element-specific finishing mould determines the final profile of the finished product.

Changing the finishing mould is a quick and easy operation.

The machine houses the main delivery hopper, the auxiliary hopper, the vibration mould, wire guides, machine movement winch and HMI control panel

Prestressed elements with special attributes

Prestressed elements with special attributes now available from Nordimpianti’s wf Wet Casting Machines
This machine uses a wetter concrete than that used by the other casting machines, either Extruder or Slipformer.
The wet casting machine can produce elements leaving the steel wires exposed at the cutting area of the element.
This is achieved after the elements have been moulded by the concrete being dragged forward by a guillotine device mounted on the finishing mould. It can also produce elements having a corrugated top surface using a special stamping device mounted on the finishing mould.
The up/down control of the guillotine and the stamping device are completely automatic. The length of the exposed steel wires can be precisely adjusted by means of a laser device which controls the position of the machine on the production bed.
Elements often require these attributes when being used in buildings constructed within seismic zones.
The insertion of steel mesh exposed on the top of the ribs is carried out by a different machine also available from NORDIMPIANTI.
