Whether you are working from home or social distancing at work, we wish all the best to you and yours staying healthy.
As we deal with the challenges that are upon us, I wanted to provide an update of our Precast Equipment offering that will improve efficiencies, produce new products for you and compliment your existing operations. Please find the following information about Vollert’s newest innovation of the MOTUS System. The MOTUS System was a 2019 Bauma Innovation Award Finalist.
Hollow-core slabs weigh up to 40% less than solid floor slabs, thus requiring less concrete in manufacturing. Therefore, they are widely used all over the world; however, the width of the slab is strongly limited due to the manufacturing process. Service ducts and concrete block-outs or lifting anchors are not possible. Reinforcement wire mesh and connecting reinforcement can be incorporated only to a limited extent. This is the reason why hollow-core slabs, in many cases, are only restrictedly suitable for earthquake zones. This is now going to change by the Motus construction system of Vollert.
