Moldtech has installed and supplied a set of pre-stressing heads with a capacity of 600 Tn, designed for the manufacture of prestressed elements.
Our client has been active in the Portuguese Civil Construction market since 1987, currently assuming a leading and consolidated position in the supply and production of materials based on prefabricated concrete, betting on ethics and respect for people, as well as for the excellent quality of its products and services, values that we share in Moldtech.
The prestressing heads are elements designed to exert a reaction force to the amount of pull resulted of the tension of strands. The supplied system consists of an active stressing head and a passive stressing head, both designed to be anchored to foundation pits. The set has been completed with a hydraulic unit which controls the relaxation of the cylinders independently to carry out this manoeuvre quickly and safely.
