Cage welding machine with variable spreading R – O – R

In the production of round concrete parts (e.g. sewer pipe systems), steel reinforcements are placed into the mould. Concrete is known to be very pressure resistant but in no way tensile or bending resistant. Depending on the installation position different areas of tension arise, which have to be supported differently by steel reinforcements. The best reinforcement cage, by theory, would start with a round shape to support the area of pipe, which is connected with the next pipe, go on with an oval geometry for the middle of the pipe and end with a round shape again, for the second connection end. So far it hasn’t been possible to produce reinforcement cages with a changed geometrical shape (e.g. [...]

The right time

Your cage welding machine performance Even if durability and robust construction are key features of the mbk machines, there comes a point when appropriate modernisation measures must be considered. Technical progress continues at a rapid pace, so that older cage welding machines can no longer ensure the customary stable production processes and the competitive advantage that has been built up over many years may be jeopardised. Older cage welding machines not only bring the risk of machine downtime, but also obsolescence and difficulty in obtaining spare parts that are no longer available on the market. However, it is not always necessary to replace the complete machine. By making various upgrade steps (retrofit actions), an optimisation process can be [...]
