Case Study: Vibrating Precast Concrete Slabs

A customer is involved in the manufacture of precast concrete slabs for a variety of uses. In order to compact concrete while it is poured into the mold, we supplied him with pneumatic vibrators and brackets adapted to his automatic carousel production.

The customer purchased some MARTIN® NTS™ 50/08 Pneumatic Linear Vibrators and installed them on the vibrating table according to our application engineers’ advice. Once completely cured, the concrete slabs were of high resistance due to the density of the concrete, and impermeable to water intrusion. The vibration also gave the slabs a smooth surface and cut down on the manual flushing time.
