Moldtech has been recently selected by an important construction company in Medellin (Colombia) for the design, manufacture and commissioning of a complete factory for the production of bridge girders and precast concrete frames.
Last July, technical team from Moldtech went to Medellin to show to the client the hole construction project, which consists of a modern precast concrete plant that will allow to supply bridge girders up to 45 meters in length and 2,2 meters in height.
This new facility will be composed of two adjacent sheds of 3.125 sqm.
In one of them will be installed the pre-stressing heads, which will withstand tension up to 1.000 TN. and will be equipped with the latest technologies in security and protection.
In the other shed will be placed both the bridge girders and a set of fixed tables for the production of pre-slabs (70 meters) and buttress sides (50 meters).
In addition, Moldtech will supply as a complement to the integral project an MT20 System, a machinery designed by Moldtech for modular manufacturing of drycast box culverts, with dimensions from 1x1 m up to 3x3 m.
The concrete transport system will consist of two mobile machines with a screw conveyor system in the top side, also manufactured by Moldtech.
Currently the project is in full-scale implementation both with regard to civil works as well as the shipment of the moulds.
In January, our client will be producing the first elements of this important project.
Once again Moldtech is at the forefront of technology, supplying equipment worldwide.
