Even for robot technology

New modular formwork system M-Basis/M-Top

The company Weckenmann has been providing shuttering systems for over 25 years for the production of large-sized precast concrete parts, which are fixed by magnets and provide a faster and safer way to complete the work and are also gentler on the surface. This basic idea has then been dynamically developed over the years and the next milestone to this technology was the development of the switchable magnet that is directly built into the profile. This has simplified and accelerated both, the manual and the robot-assisted positioning of the formwork.

As the market for the production of floor slabs and double walls used this technique to a large extent, it became obvious to adopt this idea for the shuttering systems for the production of solid precast concrete parts.

The shuttering formwork series type M, which was launched by Weckenmann about 10 years ago, was then just as successful, although the requirements were significantly different. For the shuttering, manufacturers of solid parts are confronted with the challenge to adapt to different sizes and also to three-dimensional shape details. In order to meet this requirement, this has been...
