In times of economic uncertainty, the issue of cost-effectiveness is becoming enormously important in order to keep overall project costs in check. In addition, the current shortage of labour and skilled workers is forcing people to work more efficiently. Occupational safety is no less important to protect against accidents and to make jobs in the construction industry more attractive.
These requirements are met by our new products and services that were presented at bauma 2022 in hall B3.449. With a stand area of approx. 500 m², visitors were able to experience all three product groups for themselves from 24 – 30 October 2022.
Geotechnical engineering product group
The TITAN self-drilling micropile transfers loads into the subsoil. The system, which has been approved by the German building authorities, is now available with an even wider range of applications. The development of new sizes of the TITAN Hollow Steel Bar (TITAN 40/27, 52/29, 103/72) has further improved economic efficiency, as a reduction in steel use can be realised and the utilisation of the hollow steel bar can be further optimised.
With such a large selection of hollow bars to choose from, how can an efficient and economic design choice of bar and length required to safely transfer loads be made? The smartTITAN online design tool provides a quick answer to this question with (pre-)dimensioning of the TITAN micropiles according to specified loads. Just in time for bauma, the smartTITAN online design tool has been further optimised and is available in a new version with a new technical basis and simplified easy to use design interface.
The range of drill bits has also been further expanded. The new carbide Y-drill bit is an economical solution that can also be used for overlying soils (first soil, then rock) and has excellent drilling qualities.
