Modernisation in the precast plant
Schwörer Bausysteme GmbH produces quality cellars, slab floors, precast stairs, special concrete parts, prefabricated garages and steel structures for commercial, industrial and residential construction in Haigerloch-Stetten. Quite recently, automation in the precast concrete plant was driven forward significantly by installing further equipment from progress Maschinen & Automation AG, a company of the Progress Group. The new Form Master combines the functions of formwork, demoulding and storage robots in one system and moreover takes the job of fully automatic setting magnets and built-in components.
Schwörer Bausysteme GmbH is part of the Schwörer Group and can look back on a successful development. In 1964, the Schwörer company was founded solely for quarrying and has developed considerably over the decades. In 1992 a pallet circulation system was installed. In 2000, Schwörer Bausysteme GmbH was founded and expanded in 2011 with a steel plant. Today, a total of 80 employees, five of them trainees, are employed at the Haigerloch-Stetten site. This is where mainly customised prefabricated cellars are produced for SchwörerHaus. At the beginning of 2021, the following new machines from progress make the precast plant state of the art: Shuttering robot, demoulding robot and storage robot as well as a pallet cleaning device optimise the shuttering process; the Pluristar is used as a multifunctional plant in steel preparation.
Sure, the process is faster and more automated, and the solution with setting the magnets for mounting sleeves as well as electrical boxes is a great step towards the future, but it’s mainly about making the employees’ work easier.
