Project
Re-building of 3 conventional press foundations

Client
Embraco s.r.l.,
I-10020 Riva presso Chieri (To), Italy


Explanation
3 SCHULER presses had been installed on concrete blocks fully supported by rubber pads (height 60mm). After some time the motion of the presses became unacceptable to the client. They asked GERB to look for a suitable solution, however, with the following pre-conditions:
a. the concrete block could not be destroyed or dismantled
b. the height below the concrete was just 60 mm.

Since the height of 60 mm does not offer sufficient space to install spring elements directly below the block, we decided to fix supports laterally to the block and the spring elements were mounted below the supports.

Total supported weight:
each press 120 t

Project execution
1997/1998

Scope of supply
for each press 16 fully pre-stressable GERB spring elements, type GPV, the laterally fixed supports as well as the complete installation of the new system
