Skyscraper, super tall building in the city is usually characterised as a landmark. For smooth construction, it is necessary to have experts who can manage technologies from material to maintenance, and apply them to the work. The key element technologies of skyscrapers are construction of mega mat foundation, delivering architectural load into the ground, structural system optimisation, high-rise building measurement technology, and construction equipment technology. Concrete pumps technologies are essential for high- rise buildings. Today various range of concrete pumping machines are available that are economical and smart. It also helps in placing the concrete at the desired height and place.
Stationary Concrete Pump (with i-Pump technology)
Sailaj Verma, Senior Vice President sales, KYB-Conmat India, shares about the complete range of KYB-Conmat i-Pump technology machines. He says, “KYB-Conmat pursues a research and development (R&D) strategy that is closely linked to its client’s expectations. This need alignment and the perpetual success of the stationary concrete pumps have given the industry, a whole range of i-Pump technology machines which includes the SCP 5000 and SCP 7500. The Stationary Concrete Pump with intelligent controls have many features like s-valve technology, robust electronic operation controls and management with manual overdrive, also its suitable for high pressure pumping and Indian ambient conditions and that’s why it is one of the most compact pump in its class.”
He adds, “The i-pump technology concrete pump makes transfer and placement easier and faster for casting of civil structures. It also reduces manpower requirements at the site and also avoids human errors in the process. This makes the i-Pump technology machines very economical to run and are environmentally friendly.”
Rack & Pinion Construction Elevator
In the early day’s wood scaffolding were used by labours as the way to bring the material at different elevations of the building. This was very unsafe for human life, labour oriented, time consuming and not accurate as well, which was thus delaying the project on site, this gave birth to the rope type elevator which got into further innovation to R&P elevator which is used for man and material movement and is self-erecting.
Sailaj informs, “Safety during operation is the major concern of the industry. To tackle this challenge, KYB-Conmat elevator machines have been designed, keeping in mind, the human and the machine safety.”
KYB-Conmat has 1-, 1.5- and 2-tonne capacity R&P construction elevator, which is used for passenger movements and also to carry goods and materials that can use used for under construction buildings. The operation of elevator is completely automatic PLC based with HMI system.
He informs, “Construction elevator of KYB-Conmat has a number of safety features, one of which is the safety device that ensures that even in a complete failure of the drive the cage will not fall down. A mechanical, spring loaded safety brake is a standard feature in all KYB-Conmat elevator models. It improves the safety and reliability of the elevator in everyday use. The safety brake is well protected from dirt and dust, which is practically maintenance free.”
