For the third time already FEBELCEM, the Federation of the Belgian Cement Industry, and EUPAVE, the European Concrete Paving Association, are co-organising a workshop on the occasion of Matexpo.
The theme for this year is “offset concrete paving” or the construction of concrete structures with a slipform paver whereby the mould is located outside the machine’s frame. This concerns mainly linear constructions such as kerbs, gutters and safety barriers, but footpaths and cycle paths can also be built in this way.
The three manufacturers of slipform pavers, who are also members of EUPAVE – Gomaco, Wirtgen and PowerCurbers – will explain the possibilities of their machines, including wireless control. In addition, the required concrete mix and the certification of concrete for linear constructions, as applicable in Flanders, will be discussed.
The workshop will be held Wednesday 9 September 2021 from 10.00 to 11.30.
