Westkon invests in slipformer production

The successful Australian producer of precast concrete elements, Westkon Precast in Melbourne is investing in new technology from Echo Precast Engineering for the manufacture of hollow core slabs. Production was started a short while ago.

A Universal Concrete Extruder with eight different tube and mould sets for the manufacture of hollow core slab 1.20 m in width and 15 to 50 cm in height has been installed. In addition, prestressed solid slabs for stadiums and mini slabs can be manufactured. Saws, an automatic plotter, a multi-function trolley and suitable lifting equipment extend the plant.
