BETA presents products at BAUMA 2019

Monday, 08.04.2019

Our experts will be pleased to inform you about the entire product range in the fields of lifting technology and precast concrete technology, including magnetic formworks. Visually, the exhibition stand will be dominated by two products in their original size:

  1. Double wall starter set
    With this innovative product we close the gap between stationary production and complex circulation systems. We offer the ideal solution for entering the twin wall market - with manageable costs and low complexity.
  2. Moulds for jacking pipes
    The transportable moulds are used to produce various concrete pipes for pipelines constructed by using the jacking method. This method makes it possible to lay pipes up to 4 metres in diameter underground and over long distances.

We are presenting the field of jacking pipes together with our cooperation partner "Gollwitzer Pipe and Shaft Technology". Gollwitzer offers its international customers comprehensive solutions for pipeline construction using the jacking method, including technology transfer to local partners. The possibilities range from product planning and logistics to on-site pipe production and installation.

As we will be exhibiting the devices at our stand in their original size, you will get a good idea of their processing and performance. We are looking forward to an interesting week at the fair, from which all participants will certainly receive new impulses.

BETA with a shining appearance at Bauma 2016

Wednesday, 20.04.2016

The world's largest construction machinery trade fair - BAUMA - opens its doors every 3 years in Munich. And it was that time again this year.

Beta Maschinenbau has been welcoming national and international trade visitors to its exhibition stand for the third time now. In addition to CEO André Koehn, employees from all three sites provided information and advice to customers as well as interested parties. Visitor attractions this year included the enhanced, fully electrically adjustable turnover device TWV 2.0, as well as the newly developed heavy duty trolley SGW with load capacities of up to 50 t in the standard version. The product range was rounded off with magnet and formwork technology as well as the exhibited casting pallet.


For the successful exhibition we say quite a big thank you to all our visitors!

Tipping table in just 4 weeks construction time!

Thursday, 19.11.2015

The first tipping table produced in the new BETA manufacturing centre in Heringen is delivered after just 4 weeks construction time. Our customer from Poland required the tipping table urgently for the stationary manufacturing of flat precast concrete parts such as ceiling, walls, façade panels and sandwich elements.

Tipping table basic data KT 1000 / 4.5 x 15

  • Formwork area 4.5 x 15 m
  • Load bearing capacity 1000 kg/m²
  • Edge formwork, height adjustable and folding 100 to 300 mm
  • Used for self-compacting concrete

DUPLEX FORMWORK - for high output when concreting with a casting process

Wednesday, 11.11.2015

With the manufacturing of pipes, shafts, frames and containers made from concrete, there are two fundamentally different and competing technologies. The pressing or vibration process for immediate formwork removal and the casting process for formwork-hardening products BETA Maschinenbau GmbH & Co. KG unifies the advantages of both systems in a "dual-effect mould".

With conventional immediate formwork removal, the formwork is removed from the finished part shortly after moulding and compacting. The mould is immediately available for the next cycle. A prerequisite for high production quantities is the use of very stiff or earth-moist concrete mixes. However, as the stiffness increases, the resistance to compacting increases dramatically and this can lead to cavities and rough surfaces. The early removal from the mould also impairs the dimensional stability goals for the end product. With the casting process, the fluid to plastic concrete, which is significantly easier to compact, hardens in the mould. The finished parts therefore have a very high level of dimensional stability and excellent surface characteristics. Complex concrete parts with very high functional and visual requirements can be manufactured. However, the disadvantage is the long hardening times required and the lower production rates associated with this for each moulding device. The precast parts plant must stock significantly more moulds for the same production volume and this would ultimately increase the unit prices for the concrete parts. So, this presents a problem for the precast plants: High quality products are very time-consuming to make and enormously cost-intensive. In cooperation with IAB Weimar gGmbH, BETA have therefore developed a moulding device for pipes, shafts, frames or containers that will effectively solve this problem. For 65 years, BETA has been involved in finding an appropriate solution with innovative machines and systems for the complete process in precast concrete plants. Alongside the 3D design, our strengths are the manufacturing of complex steel formwork and moulds. In this context, the basic concept of the "dual effect mould" arose - a formwork with multi-dimensional structure with regard to function and time. The advantages of the casting process are used without the whole moulding device being out of use for the duration of the concrete hardening. The system comprises primarily a "Main mould" with concreting device, compacting system, handling systems for building and removing the formwork as well as several so-called "Support formwork" units. After the core, jacket and profile rings are shuttered in and the concrete is filled in and compacted, the "main mould" is immediately removed. The complex system components are immediately available for the next cycle and are therefore optimally utilised. The freshly moulded concrete element is stabilised only by a cost-effective "support formwork" until hardening has finished. After the hardening, the formwork is removed and the finished part is further processed.

Expansion of the product portfolio thanks to TWV rotating lifting beams

Tuestday, 21.07.2015

The company Favre Betonwaren AG, based in Däniken in the Swiss canton of Solothurn, a specialist for precast concrete parts, recognised the necessity of procuring a turning beam, in particular for handling large-scale and heavy elements.

Specialist in precast concrete parts

In the field of concrete goods, the skills of the approx. 60-strong company lie in the manufacturing of civil engineering products and road construction products, tree root protection systems and products for cable construction. In the field of flat products, Favre specialises in prefabricated concrete elements for construction and civil engineering as well as foundations, track construction and road construction, which are distributed via Müller-Steinag Element AG. According to Favre's own information, with the Faverit noise protection elements made from highly absorbent lava concrete, they are a leading company in this field. 

Handling simplified

The previous turning of the corresponding elements was implemented by tipping over onto sandbags. For some time, with elements weighing over 16 t, the distance from the attachment points would have to be adapted to suit the tandem operation of the hall crane. When considering the minimum edge clearances for the anchors, the elements would each have to be at least 6 m long. With the TWV turning lifting beams it is now possible to manufacture and store more compact elements too, thanks to the additional attachment points incorporated.
