Variable formwork

Intelligent formwork solution enables precast producers to cast two different sized structures with a single form and realize design variations. Interchangeable attachments, secured to the core by hydraulic clamps, create different inner workings. The potential for length, height and shape variations equips the formwork for utility or drainage structure types. Other advantages are easy handling and short set-up times: Changing attachments for a different structure type usually requires less than 20 minutes.
