Abstract:

A technique was developed for manufacturing large concrete building units by pressing. Panels can be produced at a high rate from a single mould, and costs for product changes are low. After the development and demonstration of an experimental machine, industry has participated in further development work. Some account is given of the arrangement for commercial use, and of the economics of the process, as well as of its technical aspects. Author
