42 • March 2016 Concrete formwork engineers and manufacturers continue to orient their systems to construction speed and contractor profitability. Messe München, manager of the bauma 2016 trade fair, April 11-17 in Munich, cites examples of exhibitors' new and upgraded forming equipment and technology: A new development from Peri, a formwork and scaffolding technology company based in Weissenhorn, Germany, is aimed at foreign markets with a colder climate. Peri combined its proven Maximo wall formwork system with optional, easy-to-mount heating modules. Heating ensures that concreting work can be car- ried out even at low temperatures since the hydration process is not inhibited. Another Peri innovation set for Munich is an automatic climbing system especially designed for high-rise building cores with medium to large dimensions. New hydraulic units supply the power to climbing hydraulic cylinders, which produce a hoisting capacity of 40 tons. Due to this high load-bearing capacity, large concrete placing booms can also be raised and supported during operation. One key factor in concrete construction efficiency is an optimal formwork removal schedule. Doka, a formwork specialist from Austria, offers the Concremote service for this purpose. The development of the compressive strength and hydration heat of the concrete during con- struction is measured in real time in this respect. Formwork removal times, after-treatment times, and the earliest point for prestressing can be derived from concrete strength development readings. Doka will present a further development at bauma: The "Concremote plug.In," integrated directly in the ceiling system of the formwork and automat- ically providing information on the correct time for formwork removal. Speed is also vital in many regions of Latin America, Southeast Asia and the Middle East, especially when inexpensive housing is required. Doka has developed OneGo, a monolithic formwork system, as a solution to this challenge. In this system, which will be presented during bauma, walls and ceilings are concreted in one cast. According to the company, the application area of Doka OneGo ranges from sin- BRIEFS ORGANIZATIONS bauma 2016 management tracks ramp up in concrete formwork offerings TWO-PIECE SKID UNIT ONE-PIECE SKID UNIT SHOP ASSEMBLED, SHOP TESTED, PRODUCT READY.
