HPBS recently took an important step towards automation of the circulation plant by integrating a flexible mesh welding machine from the BlueMesh® model series. This cost-efficient machine from Progress Maschinen & Automation, a Progress Group company, is particularly suitable for plants that meet very high-quality requirements with medium output.

Mesh Welding system of HPBS leads to considerable savingsThe newly developed system is designed for maximum flexibility in mesh production.

Strengthening competitiveness in precast element applications

The new machine welds reinforcing steel meshes from the coil according to individual specifications and leads to considerable reductions in labour costs and waste. Up to now, reinforcement production still involved manual workstations for cut-outs in the meshes. With the new M-System BlueMesh, the meshes are now automatically produced with the corresponding cut-outs. HPBS produces in two shifts per day and at full capacity; the daily output of the mesh welding machine is around 3,000 m2 (8 to 9 tons). On normal days, it is between 1500 and 2000 m2, or 4 to 5 tons.

Mesh Welding system of HPBS leads to considerable savingsReinforcement meshes are produced on the M-System BlueMesh® mesh welding machine with an exact fit and just-in-time.

The new machine is convincing not only because of its high technological level, but also because of its economy in terms of energy, space requirements and costs. It is also distinguished by a special feature - the production of meshes with a special size of 8 x 4 m. The meshes are produced just-in-time with a maximum mesh width of 4 m and fit precisely the specified precast element moulds, including any openings. The mesh welding machine has been designed accordingly to add additional functions in the future, such as 3D meshes and other diameters.
Founded in 2005, Hard Precast Building Systems (HPBS) is one of the leading companies for precast concrete elements in the UAE, with over 15 years of experience and an employee base of 120 people. The company is a pioneer of high-quality precast elements such as insulated sandwich walls, cladding walls, prestressed hollow-core panels with a span of up to 24 metres, prefabricated and prestressed beams, as well as columns and foundations.

HPBS offers a wide range of services, including redesign, manufacturing, logistics and installation, for all types of precast element applications. The remarkable development in the field of structural engineering over the last ten years, has led to a significant increase in the use of prefabricated wall elements in projects, though wall panels remain the main product.

Progress was chosen for the investment

The Progress Group is known for its high-quality products and customer satisfaction. They were able to plan the manufacture, delivery and installation of the required machines within a very short time. In addition to the mesh welding machine, an automatic stirrup bender from the EBA S line was commissioned. This robust and powerful machine is used for the manufacture of reinforcing steel stirrups in various shapes, which are used as spacers between wall and floor elements as well as for the connection between two walls. In the implementation of the project, HPBS attached a great deal of importance to tailor-made complete solutions from one source.

The company is convinced that the new systems will make a significant contribution to increasing productivity in the manufacture of customised precast concrete elements and is looking positively to the future, thanks to the new Progress technology.
