RATEC battery system

The pocket battery moulds from RATEC incorporate all the creativity and engineering know-how of more than 40 years of experience in the development and rationalisation of precast concrete plants. Together with the proven upcrete® technology, our pocket battery moulds prove their high quality and cost-effectiveness day in and day out on three continents. The end product is characterised by smooth surface concrete on all sides as well as by the smallest geometric tolerances. The shutterings also impress with their ease-of-use and sturdiness.

Application

Cost-effective production of complex, formwork-smooth and extremely high-quality precast concrete elements

Properties

  • Space-saving and efficient
  • Stable pressure resistant design – each pocket can be completely filled separately
  • Can be filled from above with a concrete spreader or by means of the UPP 100 (upcrete® process) from below or from the side
  • Walls can be clamped hydraulically or mechanically
  • Available as single or twin battery, expandable to 2 x 10 pockets on request

Project USA

NOISE BARRIERS IN ALL-ROUND HIGH SURFACE QUALITY

Due to contouring of the elements and matrices partially on both sides, the customer decided in favour of the RATEC battery systems.


Project Scope
A total of three battery moulds were installed:

- Type A: 1 x 10 pockets, size 6 x 1,8 m

- Type A: 1 x 5 pockets, size 6 x 2,4 m

- Type B: 1 x 10 pockets, size 6 x 3,6 m


Additional information

- All battery systems are designed as twin systems and can be supplemented with additional pockets.

- An upcrete® pump station UPP 100 is used for filling.

- The production capacity of the plant is 300 m² or 150 running wall meters per day in single-shift operation.

Project Italy

ITALY'S PAVILION AT EXPO 2015 IN MILAN

A majority of the facade elements were manufactured in a RATEC battery mould using the upcrete® process. Filling from top was not logical due to the element geometry.

 

Project scope
- 9000 m² facade
- 2200 t cement made from 80% recycled material
- battery mould with 6 pockets of 6 x 4 m each
- UPP 100 pump station
- UCI filling connections

 

Unique challenges
- Very complex elements, each with an in individual design
- Reliable shaping of fi ligree "branches"
