Hollow-Core Detailing

Solutions for the detailing of Hollowcore Concrete. 

All our hollowcore machinery is designed to increase efficiency, reducing the variable cost of manufacture, and enabling the producer to make more profit. This in turn achieves a quick payback on investment.

Processes such as cleaning, oiling and wiring the casting beds; as well as cutting the finished product and secondary detailing, can all be made safer and more efficient using our range of machinery.

Saws

MULTI-ANGLE FACTORY SAW

The Multi-Angle Factory Saw is used to cut hollowcore concrete flooring from 100mm to 500mm deep. Any angle from 90° to 180° can be achieved with ease.

CROSS CUT FACTORY SAW

The Cross-Cut Factory Saw is used to cut hollowcore concrete flooring from 100mm to 400mm deep at a 90° angle.

MULTI-ANGLE YARD SAW

The Multi-Angle Yard Saw is used to cut hollowcore concrete flooring from 100mm to 500mm deep. Any angle from 90° to 180° can be achieved with ease.

WET CUT SAW

The Wet Cut Saw is used to create longitudinal/rip cuts in the hollowcore concrete flooring prior to curing.

Bed Cleaner’s

BED CLEANER

The Bed Cleaner prepares hollowcore casting beds for production with cleaning, oiling and wiring functions. It can also lay curing covers on finished slabs.

WIDE SLAB BED CLEANER

The RoCo Wideslab Wetcast Bedcleaner is used to prepare the beds for the casting of the wide slab concrete flooring it. The Bed Cleaner is powered by a 4 cylinder diesel engine.

Skip’s

PUSH ALONG SKIP (STANDARD)

 The RoCo Push Along Skip is a simple skip that travels on the hollow-core bed rails. It is used for detailing and enables the operator to carry 0.25m3 concrete for lifting eyes and solid ends etc. It is easy to push along the rails.

PUSH ALONG SKIP (STACKABLE)

The RoCo Push Along Skip is a simple skip that travels on the hollow-core bed rails. It is used for detailing and enables the operator to carry 0.88m3 concrete for lifting eyes and solid ends etc. The Skip itself is removable from the trolley. 

REMOTE CONTROL SKIP

The RoCo Remote Control Skip is used in both dry cast and wet cast production. The double clamshell door gives precise and highly controllable discharge. The door opening is operated by a remote control fob and is powered by an onboard hydraulic powerpack.

HOLLOW-CORE SKIP

The RoCo Hollowcore Concrete Skips are used for the supply of concrete to the hollow-core extruder or slip former. This skip has vertical sides which eliminate the sticking of the dry cast concrete during the discharge.

Cover Roller’s

COVER ROLLER

The Cover Roller is an independently powered machine used to lay curing covers over prestressed concrete immediately after production.

COVER ROLLER MANUAL

The manual cover roller is a simple and cost-effective method of laying and removing the curing covers during hollowcore slab production.

Hollow-Core Lifting

HOLLOWCORE LIFTER/TRANSPORTER

The Lifter/Transporter is a quick and efficient system for stripping hollowcore slabs from the bed and transporting them to a loading area, reducing crane time.

HOLLOW-CORE LIFTING BEAM

The RoCo Standard Lifting Beam is used for lifting hollowcore concrete slabs from the bed or on-site for installation. It is used in conjunction with RoCo lifting clamps. The carriages onto which the clamps are attached roll along the beam for adjustment. 

HOLLOW-CORE LIFTING CLAMPS

The RoCo Hollowcore Lifting Clamp is used to lift hollow-core from the casting bed and can also be used to install on-site. The scissors action gives a positive grip on the slab flange. 

Hollow-Core Detailing

DETAILING MACHINE

The Detailing Machine follows behind the extruder or slipformer and can perform all the secondary detailing required on the hollowcore slab.

CONCRETE ASPIRATOR

The Concrete Aspirator removes concrete from the green hollowcore slabs on the casting beds, creating notches/holes and exposing prestress wires/strands.

WEEP HOLE DRILLER

The Weep Hole Drilling Machine provides a much more efficient method to drill weep holes on the underside of cured hollowcore concrete slabs.

CAMBER PRESS

The Camber Press is used in combination with the saw and prevents binding of the blade by applying pressure to the hollowcore slab.
