Reinforced CagePicture rights: Firmengruppe Max Bögl

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
The complete solution from the software to reinforced cagesThe complete solution from the software to reinforced cages
The Tunnel Master is designed for the manufacture of straight and bent ladders off coil. This robust and low-maintenance welding machine enables fast and cost-saving production of tunnel segments. The ladder welding machine excels particularly with its flexible grids of longitudinal and transverse wires, as well as with a flexible choice of diameters of up to four longitudinal wires. The computer-controlled welding controller enables, moreover, have precise and controlled welding without hydraulics. Apart from short conversion times, adjustable cutting angles and an automatic stacking unit are among the highlights of the Tunnel Master.

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.
