Fully automated production cell for tunnel lattice girders from GMS

Nov 13th, 2013 | By | Category: general

GMS mechatronics from Austria has developed a fully automated solution to manufacture tunnel lattice girders As the labor costs for the production of tunnel girders dominates the cost structure, the newly designed production cell from GMS enables manufacturers of tunnel girders to cut costs immediately by 50%. Tunnel girders show a lot of different shapes […]



Tunneling with lattice girders means advanced tunnel lining

Jul 30th, 2013 | By | Category: general

Lattice girders in conjunction with shotcrete achieve an excellent level of support in tunneling. They consist of steel bars welded together in triangular pattern and they are made to suit the shape of the tunnel. This combined system acts as an armor that provides balanced support and reduced consumption of shotcrete. The GMS lattice girder […]

WIRE 2012 unveils new truss frame welding lines from Schlatter, Progress and EVG

Mai 10th, 2012 | By | Category: general, machinery business

Precast concrete slabs, like floor or wall slabs, are reinforced to be stiff and to resist all the forces which occur in their lifetime. The reinforcement consists of mesh, straightend wire bars and last but not least truss frames or so called lattice girders or truss girders. The machinery for producing truss frames is very […]



A FILZMOSER lattice girder welding line from the 1970s

Kaiser-Omnia, a very important lattice girder system, acquired its name from the two companies Kaiser-Decken GmbH in Frankfurt/Main and Rheinbau GmbH in Wiesbaden, which developed practical building solutions during the 50 s- among others, a multitude of lattice girders and components under the trade names Kaiser and Omnia. Approximately 400 prefabricated concrete factories in Germany […]



Bridges, a new application for lattice girders in Japan

Sep 26th, 2010 | By | Category: general, lattice girder business

Since many years lattice girders in the construction industry are used for floors and slabs only. In Japan I have discovered a new business field for girders. There is a new and approved application for girders: bridges. With this new utilization of girders, road construction engineers can use an additional alternative to design bridges economically […]
