Equipped with 4 x 132-metre production lines provided by Elematic and occupying an area of 30,000 square metres, the new factory is the company’s biggest investment to date. The 20-million-euro plant was designed with production versatility in mind. The factory is capable of producing Superslabs, hollowcore slabs, solid walls, wall panels as well as beams, columns and other special elements. Large infra products like concrete elements for bridges can be produced too.
The production lines can be changed from Superslab production to hollowcore overnight, and to beam and column in just a couple of days.
Given the ambitious goal of developing a line capable of producing a wide variety of different types of precast products, the project required extensive expertise – which is why Lujabetoni chose Elematic as their technology provider.
