Ratec designed and built a special formwork for funicular railways, according to the demands of a Swiss customer.
A lot of requirements from the elements took account in the development process, such as the brushing, the rail layout, the assembly of anchors such as the components, for example the rollerboxes made out of fiber glass reinforced plastics. The consideration of all these requirements had significant effects on the calculation of the components.
Thanks to the special formwork, we were able to replace the rollerboxes with normal concrete ones, due to integration of "Typing".
The result is a much less expensive production of concrete parts.
