Innovative system for automated formwork filling
Leading engineering group Kern Tunneltechnik and specialist concrete pumps manufacturer Putzmeister have formed a strategic partnership for the development of concrete delivery solutions in tunnels. The automated formwork filling system combines Kern’s state-of-the-art formwork solutions for tunnels with Putzmeister’s leading technical expertise in concrete pumps, to optimize the concrete-pouring process in underground construction sites while delivering significant time and cost savings. The Automated Formwork Filling System is regulated by a set of 2-way valves integrated in the formwork structure, and connected by a single delivery line that links the entire system in sequential rows.
- Automation means reduced workforce on site
- Faster overall tunnel construction and quicker hydrostatic filling process
- Reduced labor-related costs
- Compact structure allows simultaneous work
Contains a stationary concrete pump, BSA 1408 E, and the Bespoke Formwork from Kern.
