upcrete® Room Modules
In-situ production of complex elements

Visionary concepts come true with upcrete® modular molds – even complex concrete structures can be produced with smooth surfaces on all sides.

The room module mold with “flying” shrinking core was the first room cell mold developed in Hockenheim and was used for a modular housing project for a Peruvian customer. This mold variant is based on the upcrete® technology, in which self-compacting concrete is pumped from below into a closed mold. This process allows the concrete to optimally distribute within the mold and yields smooth surfaces on all sides, as well as precise edges and recesses. Another advantage is that the structure can be produced in its final installation position, which means that subsequent turning is no longer required.

Application

Production of room modules in installation position without turning

Properties

  • Maximum dimensional accuracy on the element
  • Complete filling of the most difficult geometries
  • Production of complex concrete bodies in installation position
  • All-around smooth surfaces
  • Minimal concrete residue
  • Quiet, material-friendly, efficient and employee-friendly concrete elements production
  • High utilisation of the mold
