HTB Hoch- und Tiefbaustoffe GmbH & Co. KG has expanded its plant in Könnern in Saxony-Anhalt. At the end of 2017, a dilapidated building was razed to the ground and the surrounding area prepared for the construction of the new ceiling and wall circulation plant by Ebawe Anlagentechnik, a Progress Group company. The construction of the new factory building quickly took shape, so that the production plant was already operational in May 2019.
The reinforcement is produced directly and just in time in the new hall: with an MSR straightening and cutting machine from progress Maschinen & Automation, the reinforcing steel is straightened from the coil and cut to the required lengths. The reinforcement is inserted fully automatically with the help of the Wire Center laying robot, which places longitudinal and transverse bars as well as the lattice girders into the shuttered pallets with two robot arms.
