The bucket conveyor and the concrete distribution portal provide for fast transportation of the concrete to the mold – while in the past the system had run vice versa and a crane had carried the heavy steel mold across the production hall up to the casting station.

As soon as the concrete was poured into the chambers, the filled and then even heavier mold was once again heaved by the crane for onward carriage to the curing station.
