Artistic concrete elements are popular in the design of gardens, parks or green areas and can be created by yourself with the right technology and suitable accessories. Here, you can find 7 tips on achieving optimum quality and a fine appearance with concrete consolidation using internal vibrators:
Little space – much to do: The restoration of the Karawanken Tunnel is more than challenging. It’s a good thing that Wacker Neuson has the right construction machines in its portfolio for such confined construction sites: the innovative Dual View dumpers. The eight machines used on the site ideally suited to this kind of task. With the operating and seat console that can be turned 180 degrees, material transport in Strabag AG’s construction work in the Karawanken Tunnel is no problem, as strenuous turning and maneuvering are no longer necessary thanks to the rotating seat.
It’s clear that overload protection when raising, lowering and transporting with telehandlers means a lot for safety on the construction site. But how does this safety feature go along with productive and efficient work? With a telehandler by Wacker Neuson, it becomes possible, as all models are equipped with the Vertical Lift System (VLS), a driver assistance system that really has it all.
Compaction machines have a long tradition at Wacker Neuson. This tradition has its beginning in the year 1930, as Hermann Wacker invents the first electric vibratory rammer. Then, in the fifties, the first vibratory rammer, with an internal combustion engine, makes its entrance – again, a revolution in the industry, as now, autonomous working is possible independent of power cables. The success of the light and flexible compaction machine keeps going. In the meantime, Wacker Neuson offers a wide portfolio of a variety of vibratory rammer models – with the choice of gasoline, diesel or battery drive. This also includes low-emission 2 stroke rammers.
Vibratory rammers, plates, rollers – Wacker Neuson offers the right compaction equipment for almost every application: from the 30-kilogram vibratory rammer to the 7-metric ton drum roller, the right equipment is available for every type of soil compaction. How does this work in practice? It works like this, here on one of the Kassecker construction company’s construction sites in the Munich inner city, where the wide range of the Wacker Neuson portfolio for soil compaction is put into application.
Are battery-powered tools only for special applications? Far from it! On a large construction site in Vienna, the battery-powered compaction equipment and compact electric machines are proving that they too are perfectly suited for daily practical use. Read on and see for yourself.
Accepting challenges, developing solutions and accompanying projects – the Wacker Neuson concrete specialists are involved in these tasks. This was also the case with a superlative project in Hong Kong: A gigantic road tunnel that will connect the city of Tuen Mun (area 40) with Chek Lap Kok airport on Lantau island. The tunnel is part of a major project for connecting the metropolitan area Hong Kong – Zuhai – Macao. Two tunnel tubes with four lanes are being constructed over a length of around five kilometers with the world’s largest tunnel boring machine. The work will take place up to 55 meters below the sea surface.
