Concrete

The Adaptive Moulds comes in various sizes and can be customized based on the customer’s requirements

Adaptive Moulds for the Concrete Industry

The Adaptive Mould for Precast Concrete, HPC, GFRC and GRG enables manufacturing companies to produce low-repetition curved panels faster, affordably and more sustainably than alternative techniques.

There is a rise in demand for curved and organic architecture, Concrete materials plays an important role across all sorts of constructions, and with an increasing awareness on flexible designs and decrease of environmental impact.

Concrete products hold unique flexible design capabilities and are in principle only limited by the boundaries of concrete mould.

Compared to the concrete value, one-off concrete moulds are quite expensive and mostly the re-use of moulds limit the architectural freedom.

The increase in demand for curved architecture demands for re-configurable technologies, that offer both the ability to create free-form architecture and be re-used to lower cost.

Adapa cooperate with experts from the field of concrete, to assist architects, advisors and fabricators in creating uniquely curved panels.

Fast

One mould can take multiple shapes, and it can do so within minutes. This means that you have:

The Possibility to fabricate different materials and designs with a single mould

No waiting time for tooling

Maximum flexibility for last-minute changes and design iterations

Affordable

The Adaptive Mould eliminates the need for manufacturing unique tooling for every panel and because of this you have:

Minimal tooling costs

Reduced space requirements in your production setup

Shorter production time

Sustainable

The Adaptive Mould significantly reduces your potential waste of disposable moulds, which means that you have:

Less logistical costs due to no transportation or storage of disposable moulds

A more sustainable production and a smaller carbon footprint impact

Significantly less waste to manage

There are three different adaptive mould types that can be used for curved concrete manufacture:

Single Curved Adaptive Mould

S300-Heavy

Ideal for precast and concrete products with single curved geometry.

Double Curved Adaptive Mould

D300-Heavy

Ideal for heavy load curved concrete designs with double curved geometry.

Double Curved Adaptive Mould

D300

Ideal for curved GFRC and GRG designs with double curved geometry.

There are more advantages that can be achieved:

Multi Stage Forming

The flexible properties of the Adaptive Mould allow for multi-stage forming, including a process such as the following:

Lay-up surface layer in flat stage

Adjust the mould into the curved shape

Release the panel by selectively lowering the actuators

High precision

The Adapa Tools software eliminates the need for manual measuring and support you to benefit from the advantage of:

Low mould surface tolerances

Guidance by accurate 3D laser

Guided positioning of brackets and fixtures

Collaborative Technologies

The Adaptive Mould is designed to handle surface temperatures up to 140o C and collaborate with several technologies:

Magnetic silicon sides and shuttering for panel edge precision

Top membranes for patterns or inlays

Spray gun and heating mats

Robotic lay-up or post processes
