Highly automated, standardised and flexible

The traditional Dutch precast concrete element producer, Geelen Beton, has for a long time been concentrating on the production of elements for major infrastructure facilities and the manufacturing of solid walls, lattice girder floors and insulated ceiling at its two production sites. When, in the last few years, the trend for constructing with precast concrete elements spread increasingly into the private house construction industry, the company decided on a complete new build for the carrousel system in Wanssum. Production was to be geared to present requirements: highly automated, standardised and at the same time flexible.

Key role: fully automatic shuttering and combination system

The fully automatic shuttering and de-shuttering Form Master robots and the Infinity Line® combination system play a key role in this standardised and at the same time flexible production process. Infinity Line® makes it possible to combine different shutter lengths to the best advantage and thus to reduce the number of shutters required to a minimum. The entire carrousel plant is controlled by the ebos® control system. Geelen Beton has already worked successfully with Progress Maschinen & Automation in the past. This latest project with EBAWE Anlagentechnik was also consistently rated as successful: „I fid working with the whole PROGRESS GROUP extremely simple right from the start,“ comments the Technical Director, Niels van der Hulst. „The team understands our needs and wishes and in addition they are totally familiar with the production process and products. “
