Special knowledge is required for building tunnels and wind energy plants in order to implement demanding projects. The facilities and manufacturing processes required for such projects can be adjusted well in advance for efficient manufacture of ladders and mesh to meet specific requirements. Progress Maschinen & Automation, a Progress Group company, has complete technologically mature solutions which, depending on the customer’s requirements, are developed to the highest degree of automation. In addition to consistently high production quality, the development of mobile solutions is another aspect to which special emphasis is paid. For implementing projects in tunnel construction and for the erection of wind energy plants, the company, based in South Tyrol, Italy, banks on machines tailored to meet specific individual requirements.
Tunnel Master ladder welding machine
M-System mesh welding plant
Precise and controlled welding and just-in-time production of made-to-measure reinforcing mesh off coil are special outstanding features of the mesh welding plant from this latest generation. This enables manufacture of special geometric shapes, blockouts and a choice of diameters. On the bending system, the mesh can be bent both upward and downward. The M-System features a fully integrated straightening plant. It can, moreover, be expanded by various logistics solutions and is available as a mobile plant.
Special robots can fully automatically weld the processed reinforcing steel elements into complete reinforcing cages. The production output can be scaled, depending on customers’ requirements. The customized ProFit software controls production processes, order positions and machines. CAD systems supply the modular-design program with reinforcement data.
Mobile solutions for construction projects
In planning and implementing mobile facilities, the wind-energy and tunnel industry profits from this engineering company’s many years of experience. Progress Maschinen & Automation offers specific consulting services for an automated production process and individual production concepts. Through innovative technologies and specific customer orientation, the company has evolved into an internationally leading supplier in this sector.
