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.

Key Features

  • 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
