Prestressed products made by NORDIMPIANTI’s Extruder, Slipformer and Wet Casting machines offer many advantages that make them a success all over the world.
Despite the low water/cement ratios making the concrete very hard to work NORDIMPIANTI’s machines have no difficulty in consistently forming complex element profiles, ready to be lifted from the production bed within 6-8 hours after casting.
The extruder and slipformer machines enable the user to cast elements with or without prestressing cables but obviously with prestressing comes the cost and ease of use advantages demanded by the civil and industrial construction sector.
Prestressing gives high quality elements with smaller cross sections with a more efficient use of materials. Smaller cross sections mean lighter panels reducing the cost of transport and allowing easy handling both on-site and in the production plant.
