To achieve such a feat one needs world-class technology, precision engineering, and extraordinary efforts and commitment from the engineers. Apollo Inffratech Group is always at the forefront of cutting- edge technologies in concrete and asphalt equipment in India. Its Egglay Drycast Modular Form technology is one such endeavour.
AHCT’s Modular Box Forms
System Benefits Adaptable compo- nents: The modular form, joint ring and stiffening components can be configured to manufacture a wide range of products with a single set of components.
Precise assembly: Forming components are pegged and machined to facilitate precise assembly for the manufacture of high-quality box sections. Exact joint ring segments: Machined joint ring segments are capable of manufacturing both gasketed or mortar joints.
Diverse vibration applications: Vibration styles are available for various applications, including conventional jacket vibration and powerful synchronized core vibration. All are controlled by a computerized vibration control module.
As compared to other modular box form systems, Apollo HawkeyePedershaab offers these important advantages:
- Variable depth jacket structure reinforces jacket in key stress areas, yet permits overall form flexibility for adequate vibration transmission.
- Large core assemblies are designed with integral stiffeners to limit deflection of core segments for the production of dimensionally accurate box products.
- EasySet jacket-to-pallet centering devices are threaded to permit precise and easy adjustment.
- Pallets incorporate a torsion-resisting structural profile to resist twisting and torquing of the pallet during demoulding and curing.
- Headers accept bolt-on adapters to adjust the wall thickness for various size boxes.
- Form designs available for form-applied vibration processes.
OperationThe modular box form system incorporates adjustable steel forms to produce box culverts up to 7 meters in span and 3 meters* in rise in varying lengths and wall thicknesses. (*larger dimensions may be produced if such a need exists). The moulds are designed for use with a variety of manufacturing systems, including wet-cast, egglay, and use on Apollo HawkeyePedershaab or other makes of vibration machines.
Versatile Production: The modular box form is designed for use on HawkeyePedershaab machines but is capable of being used on independent dry cast production stations or machines of different makes.
Precise Products: The modular box form system is engineered to produce boxes with unmatched precision and incomparable dimensional accuracy. The form’s heavy-duty construction and the accurate fit of the form segments permit the manufacture of box products with tolerances precise enough for gasketed box culvert applications.
Optional Synchronized Core Vibration: The modular form core includes integrated, synchronized vibrators to provide the primary source of vibration. This exclusive vibration process allows the form to be built with rigid stiffeners to minimize form deflection for the manufacture of precise and dimensionally accurate products.
Accurate Joints: Torsional, heavy duty pallets ensure structural integrity throughout the production process for accurate joints.
Flexible, Modular Design: Adjustable, steel form components provide flexibility in the selection of critical dimensions, including length, span, rise, and wall thickness.
