Leading engineering group Kern Tunneltechnik and specialist concrete pumps manufacturer Putzmeister have formed a strategic partnership for the development of concrete delivery solutions in tunnels. The Automated Formwork Filling System is regulated by a set of 2-way valves integrated in the formwork structure, and connected by a single delivery line that links the entire system in sequential rows.
- Automation means reduced workforce on site
- Faster overall tunnel construction and quicker hydrostatic filling process
- Reduced labor-related costs
- Compact structure allows simultaneous work
- Contains a stationary concrete pump, BSA 1408 E, and the Bespoke Formwork from Kern
