Slipformer S-liner®

The slipformer S-liner® from Echo Precast Engineering is the ideal solution for versatile, flexible production requirements. This machine allows you to produce hollow core slabs, foundation piles, lattice girder and solid floors, T-beams, channels, gutters and even hollow core slabs with insulation and integral heating and cooling systems. Depending on the type of element you need, this is the right machine.

Slipformer S-Liner® T30, T40, T50

This versatility is made possible by the modular machine structure. Height differences in the same product series can be produced by quick, problem-free changing of the tube set and run-around.

The specific construction of the Slipformer S-Liner and the use of zero-slump concrete (dry concrete) make it exceptionally cost-efficient and easy to use and maintain.

Technical Data

Machine type Production level (from-to)
S-Liner® T30 6 - 30 cm
S-Liner® T40 15 - 40 cm
S-Liner® T50 20 - 50 cm

Each machine type can be configured for a track width of 1.2 m to 1.5 m or of 2.4 m.

Versatile, flexible production

Maintenance-friendly

Quick change of tube and mould set

Universal Slipformer

The Echo Precast Engineering universal slipformer makes it possible to produce pre-stressed concrete hollow core floor slabs from 6 - 50 cm in height.

This versatility is made possible by the modular machine structure. Height differences in the same product series can be produced by quick, problem-free changing of the tube set and run-around.

Changing to a completely different product can be completed even more quickly by replacing the production module. 

The specific construction of the Universal Slipformer S-Liner® and the use of zero-slump concrete make it exceptionally cost-efficient and easy to use and maintain.

Slipformer for wall panels

With slipformer technology you can manufacture wall panels with or without an exposed aggregate concrete structure. Whereas a normal slip former is used for the production of "grey" wall panels (all the slip formers referred to have this function) we have specifically designed a slip former to produce, for instance, wall panels with exposed aggregate concrete structure – in one production sequence. The slip former for wall panels is a specific machine type with the same design as the S-Liner® T 30, but with an extended frame.

The extended frame allows the machine to be equipped with an additional concrete supply hopper. Whereas the normal hopper contains the usual grey concrete and is designed for the manufacture of hollow core sections, this third hopper is loaded with colourised concrete (a mixture of sand, colourised additives and white cement). The machine applies a thin layer of colourised concrete (usually 15 mm) to the hollow core element. This process guarantees optimum binding of the surface layer with the (grey) under layer.

In addition to the extended frame the machine also has a fine smoothing tool specifically for improving the finishing features. All the other functions are identical with those of the S-Liner®T30 slip former.

Der erweiterte Rahmen erlaubt die Ausrüstung der Maschine mit einem zusätzlichen Betontrichter. Während der normale Trichter den üblichen grauen Beton enthält und für die Herstellung von Hohldecken bestimmt ist, wird dieser dritte Trichter mit gefärbtem Beton (einer Mischung aus Sand, gefärbten Zuschlagstoffen und weißem Zement) bestückt. Die Maschine trägt eine dünne Schicht aus gefärbtem Beton (üblicherweise 15 mm) auf die Spannbeton-Fertigdecke auf. Dieses Verfahren gewährleistet eine optimale Verbindung der Deckschicht mit der (grauen) Unterschicht.

Topping machine for wall panels

As well as the manufacture of the usual type of wall panels, slipformer technology also allows production of insulated wall panels,  with or without exposed aggregates. Whereas a normal wall panel is produced in a production sequence on one machine, the insulated elements have to be subjected to a second production process with a second machine. We have designed a topping machine specifically for this purpose.

Production Steps

The individual production steps are:

  • In the first step a standard slip former (or a slip former for wall panels) produces the basic structure (i.e. a hollow core element in grey concrete).

  • The insulation is added manually - either PS (polystyrene, PUP (polyurethane) or PIR (polyisocyanurate) - normally in thicknesses of 40, 60 or 80 mm (depending on the insulation class required).

  • A top layer, consisting of grey (massive) concrete, is added to the insulation, with a surface finish in colourised concrete (which can be washed to obtain an exposed aggregate surface).

  • To apply the top layer this special machine runs over a normal table top (with an insulation layer). The machine can be loaded with 2 concrete supply hoppers - the first is for grey concrete and the second for pigmented concrete. In this way a massive grey layer (on a table top with insulation) and in the same production step a thin top layer can be applied (the total height of the layer is now +/- 60 mm).
