NORDIMPIANTI’s WF Wet Casting machines have been designed for the production of prestressed concrete products with special attributes such as exposed wire or a corrugated upper surface.The machine offers a cost-effective solution for companies that are looking for a flexible approach to produce hollow core slabs, solid slabs, inverted T beams and 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.
Concrete is delivered from the auxiliary hopper to the Wet Casting machine’s main hopper. It then falls by gravity directly onto the bed passing through the vibrating mould. The vibrating mould is equipped with 2 vibration motors ensuring an excellent level of compaction at every point along the element.
After, the concrete moves through the finishing mould which gives the final profile to the element.
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 element heights range from 60 mm to 300 mm and are available in widths of 600 mm, 1200 mm, 1250 mm, 1500 mm and 2400 mm.
The heights of the elements, as well as the thickness of the vertical ribs can be varied within certain limits according to the application and the element specifications required.
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
