First chalice column poured at S 21

The chalice columns are one of the architectural highlights of the Stuttgart 21 construction project. A total of 29 chalice columns support the ceiling above the new underground station and, thanks to their open-top shape, direct daylight into the station concourse. Now the first of the imposing chalice columns was poured. Two SCHWING truck-mounted concrete pumps from Godel-Beton, a S 36 X and a S 43 SX III, were in operation. With their help, around 460 m³ of white concrete delivered by Stetter's UltraEco truck-mixers from the nearby mobile batching plant were put into the formwork. A particular constructional challenge for the responsible companies was the specification of the client and... Read more

The 100th Reptor goes to the Netherlands

Henk de Boer is pleased about his new S 38 SX Reptor. To be more precise, there are three S 38 SX Reptor, models 100 to 102. The technical director of FABER Betonpompen appreciates the machines from Herne. The fleet includes around 20 SCHWING truck-mounted concrete pumps. The first pump, an S 42, was purchased by FABER in 1986 and has remained loyal to the Herner company ever since. For Henk de Boer the decisive factors are good service, user-friendly technology that is not susceptible to faults and the elimination of unnecessary electronic components. But the high resale value also plays an important role in the decision. The label "Made in Germany" also comes into play here. Not so much... Read more

S 65 SXF new Top Model from SCHWING

The S 65 SXF is a new technical design, combined with the well-known quality components from SCHWING that are used in the other size classes. One innovation is the new SXF outrigger, a combination of the proven arched SX outrigger and an additional folding element (folding = "F"). This means that for the first time a truck-mounted concrete pump of this size can be operated without the need for multiple telescopic outriggers. As a result, the SXF outrigger leads to higher stability and steadier pumping. At the same time, the S 65 SXF with a footprint of 11.58 m x 13.70 m is the smallest in this class and thus offers extended application possibilities. “Our customers also placed particular... Read more

SCHWING pumps heavy concrete into Hamburg’s Old Elbe Tunnel

Stationary concrete pumps are generally used to pump concrete over large distances, remaining at the construction site for the duration of the work. Due to the phased concreting work, however, an S 36 X truck-mounted concrete pump is being used to restore St. Pauli Elbe Tunnel. For this purpose, the rotatable outlet of the S 36 X is separated from the boom pumping line and connected to the fixed pumping line with a diameter of 125 mm in order to pump heavy concrete through the each three-metre-long delivery pipes at a delivery pressure of up to 85 bar. As required, the machine can be placed directly next to the entrance of the jetties or the entrance on the southern side. The work requi-res... Read more

SCHWING supports the Mersey Gateway Project

According to the operator consortium, this project involves around 127,000 m³ of concrete placed over the almost four years of construction.
