Compared to its finished product, the precast concrete piece, the metallic mould is less known.

The particularity of the concrete spleepers is the pre-stressing. Cables made of steel are tightened and put in the moulds before to be cast. By relaxing, those naturally will return to their...>
We provide formworks for products that require special geometrical precision, or that present difficulties in demoulding. The beam moulds that CBE provided to the precast company Nuttall in the UK for...>
