Fully automated reinforcing mesh production based on design office 3D models

Hurks Prefabbeton BV, 5500 AE Veldhoven, The Netherlands


Large and complex buildings made from precast concrete components – these are just the type of construction projects where the strengths of Hurks, a family business, can come fully into play. Backing up the Hurks name is a group made up of 15 companies with their head office in Eindhoven, The Netherlands. The Hurks Group is mainly engaged in the fields of planning projects, constructing residential and commercial buildings as well as manufacturing precast concrete components. Of a total of four construction companies belonging to the group, the two larger units plus the two precast production facilities are the main pillars on which the group is built. The 800 employees at the Hurks Group generate an annual turnover of € 280 million. Hurks provides a one-stop solution for everything. From the initial planning stage to the completion of a construction project, the company aims to be the sole point of contact for the customer. There are practically no limits set to customers’ individual wishes both at home and abroad. The precast for all their construction projects are manufactured in Hurks’ own Prefabbeton precast production facilities in Tilburg and in Veldhoven close to Eindhoven. Hurks has quite recently invested in extensive modernisation of the reinforcing mesh production line at the Veldhoven facility. Progress Maschinen & Automation AG from Brixen, Italy, has implemented a modern system concept that, besides welding individual reinforcing meshes from single bars, makes it possible subsequently to bend the meshes as well. The new production system accesses the data necessary for this fully automated manufacturing process directly from its database solution developed by Tekla Structures. Tekla’s software for creating and managing detailed 3D models able to be used in design work has been employed by Hurks for years to the company’s full satisfaction.
