_TABLES FOR THE PRODUCTION OF PANELS AND DOUBLE MOULD FOR CONCRETE BEAMS IN FRANCE_
PREFA BRESSUIRAIS located at Bressuire, in Deux-Sèvres is specialized in the production of reinforced precast elements for the industrial and agricultural sector, has incorporated to its industrial plant:
- The Moldtech tilting table of 12.5 meters enables the company to produce precast concrete elements of up to a thickness of 30cm and with a load of 750kg/m2. The tilting table will allow the company to easily lift the panel, reduce the amount of steel reinforcement, improve their de-molding system and assure an excellent wall panel finish. The table was conceived to be used with self-levelling concrete for which it was prepared with a special plate finish.
- the fixed tables as a general casting surface where all kinds of different concrete elements are casted using magnetic shuttering. These elements can be architectural, structural or façade elements. With a size of 13.5 x 5 meters and a load capacity of 750kg/m2, features lateral shuttering of 30cm height and offers great versatility for the production of flat and linear concrete elements.
- Lastly, the supply consisted of the classic double beam mould, widely used in France but in this case with hydraulic opening and closing. The double beam mould has a length of 8 meters and will cover future production needs. Each line can produce a maximum section of 1.5 x 1.5 meters; however the longitudinal mid panel can be removed allowing casting widths of 3.1 meters x 1.5 meters. All surfaces directly in contact with the concrete have a special polish so self-leveling concrete can be used. The mould has also gangways in accordance to the safety regulations.
