The machine is equipped with electronic sensors, which run on a preset guideline mounted on steel pins and brackets- this defines the vertical and horizontal alignment of the kerb being placed. A troweling section on the rear of the mould finishes the concrete.
The concrete is vibrated to ensure that the right density and compaction is achieved. As the machine moves the mould slips over the vibrated concrete – hence the term ‘slipform’. Any changes in the energy the kerber applies to the concrete or changes in the concrete properties will alter the results of the slipform kerbing process. Hence, uniformity is key in the slipform kerbing process. Distribution of concrete to the kerber is continuous and meets the demands of high production.
