Putzmeister is launching Formkret, an innovative formwork filling system developed by concrete pumps manufacturer Putzmeister, and brought to market with engineering group Kern Tunneltechnik. Through this strategic partnership, two brands synonymous with quality and technological leadership are joining forces to provide advanced concrete application solutions for tunnels worldwide.

The state-of-the-art automated formwork filling system Formkret is designed to enhance safety, reduce workforce-related costs by up to 60% along with project timelines, while allowing other work to be carried out simultaneously, all thanks to its compact structure. Once a manual, labor-intensive process, the application of concrete secondary linings in tunnels has been brought into the 21st century, thanks to Formkret.

Regulated by a set of two-way valves integrated into the formwork structure and connected by a single delivery line that links the entire system in sequential rows, this latest innovation helps to reduce the need for manual work, enhancing worksite safety and speeding up the overall process.

With this latest offering, Putzmeister positions itself as a one-stop shop for all concrete-related applications in tunneling, further cementing its market leadership. Together with strategic ally Kern Tunneltechnik, the concrete pumps manufacturer now offers a complete package solution for tunnel construction: bespoke Kern formwork structure as per customers’ specifications + Formkret formwork filling system + Putzmeister BSA trailer-mounted concrete pumps. This integrated solution for concrete delivery in tunneling is an integral part of our premium services.
