upcrete® - Our change of perspective turns the precast concrete industry
upside down



What is upcrete®?

Definition: upcrete® (“concreting upwards”).

upcrete® describes the process of concreting a precast concrete element in the die-cast, flushrising concreting method, which combines all sides smooth surfaces and production in the installation position with the greatest possible
economical efficiency. The molds are filled from below (injection) with a pump. Thereby very little air is introduced into the concrete through the filling process, so that one can work with self-compacting concrete and no additional mechanical compacting is required. Almost all limiting surfaces can be molded, merely escape openings for air are to be provided at certain points of the molded geometry, similar to what one knows from injection molding technology for plastics and metals.



The vertical production system
by the innovation leader

Since 2006 we have constantly further developed upcrete© technology and adapted it to actual customer requirements, making it easy to perfectly fit into existing productions or newly set up plants.

Upcrete© not only revolutionizes precast concrete part production, but also sets impulses for the complete design and planning process up to production and assembly of precast concrete elements.

The technology provides new - previously unknown - possibilities of prefabrication and, thus, gives stimuli to those who are creating the buildings of the future.

Another good news: upcrete© can be easily and economically installed in existing productions and can be customized to your individual needs.
