maxcaster

Ultimate flexibility and accuracy for every application

We have continually improved the slipform technology over the past decades. It is the perfect solution whenever many different prestressed concrete products are to be produced with just one machine: Hollow slabs, solid slabs, T-beams, lintels, ram piles, vineyard posts, TT slabs, ribbed slabs and much more. After a conversion time of < 10 minutes, the machine insert module is exchanged and another product is manufactured. The modular machine concept allows the production of all commercially available prestressed concrete elements up to 240 cm wide and up to 60 cm high.

Compaction System

The maxcaster slipformer produces in a continuous casting process.  Concrete is poured in and shaped into the desired form in up to three stages. For concrete compaction, we use a powerful combination of tamping, high and normal frequency vibrators. This allows the use of a very dry, earth-dry concrete with a low water/cement ratio. This results in a low cement requirement of about 320-400 kg/m³ of concrete. The end products achieve a compressive strength of up to 75 MPa and can usually be cut after less than 8 hours of curing time.

High-density concrete - Minimum cement consumption - Maximum productivity

10 min. conversion time

< 8h Short Curing Time

Modular design

The maxcaster consists of three main modules: the chassis module with travel drive unit, the feeder module with concrete silo and power unit, and the machine insert module with formwork. Each of the main modules is subdivided into different sub-modules. Result: lots of combination possibilities.

Highest variability - Shortest changeover times - Minimum space requirement
