Concrete Panel production on remote sites near the wall - Molds are built on lowboy trailer frames for portable bases with aluminum extrusions for beams running perpendicular to the trailer frame. The complex waffled and slotted mold bodies are large Thermoformed plastic supported and framed by custom aluminum extrusions. These molds on wheels can be readily moved along the wall and grouped as needed for remote casting operations near the wall, reducing shipping costs. Sand and Gravel can be sourced near the wall, in most cases. Mass production of the mold bodies facilitates rapid deployment of the forming system to the sites. Molds are Pressure washed each day after panels are removed from the forms, to insure clean molds each day.
-Outriggers on each trailer provide for leveling each form before casting of concrete into the molds. Heavy duty electric vibrator motors mounted on the trailer frames consolidate the self leveling concrete to insure void free panels and the self leveling and vibration process eliminates the need for screeding and finishing the top surface. Tops of panels are relatively smooth and flat and as soon as initial set is achieved, the insulated curing cover blankets are rolled out over the forms to insure over night curing so the molds can be reused daily without the use of external heat for rapid curing.
-Panels are removed each morning from the molds and either stacked near the wall for erection or placed on flatbed trailers for hauling short distances to the erection areas. Heavy duty electric vibrator motors mounted on the trailer frames can also be use to help facilitate panel removal from the forms.
