Robot production of formwork for the manufacture of precast elements with complex shape

B+S Engineering GmbH, 48432 Rheine, Germany

For the Swiss manufacturer Filigran Bauelemente AG, oneoff production is no longer a problem, not even for precast elements with complex shapes. A six-axis robot quickly mills negative forms from various materials, with high precision and cost efficiency – including the drainage channels of manhole bases and slender building elements for restoration of architectural-heritage buildings. The next development steps are application of industrial waxes for the formwork and order of custom-made precast elements by smartphone app and delivery within a few hours.
