Through the use of our Slipform Wirtgen, the industrial paving works at Cagliari-Elmas Airport have just been completed, after having finished the industrial paving at Fiumicino (RM) Airport, vehicles and workers were immediately employed in Sardinia for this important new production.
As always, Medipav employs highly specialized personnel and its sliding shutter paver for precise installation.
SLIPFORM how it works: in the inset method, the concrete mixer unload the concrete in front of the sliding form paver. A cochlea or a blade then distributes the mix homogeneously over the entire spreading width. As the paver moves forward, the robust sliding formwork gives the right shape to the concrete floor. At the same time, high frequency electric vibrators guarantee optimum compaction of the spread material. The ligature and transfer bars are then automatically embedded in the still fresh concrete. Finally, the transversal and longitudinal levelers give the new flooring the final touch.
The slipform paver is the ideal solution when it comes to making high-quality concrete floors of all kinds quickly and economically. The modular construction allows standard paving widths between 2.0 and 6.0 m and paving thicknesses up to 400 mm. The blade or auger spreader evenly spreads the concrete, while the advanced control systems of height and steering guarantee precise paving results.
The installation of the tying or transfer bars takes place, according to requirements, in a totally automatic way and without interrupting the operating process. The machine therefore offers the best conditions for the construction of large works with a high incidence of heavy vehicles, runways for landing and landing at airports and industrial floors subject to high loads
A high precision work !!
