The Concrete Placement Boom: a practical and economical solution for the distribution of pumped concrete.
This equipment is a very important complement to a concrete pump as it makes it possible to cast easily in those points that cannot be directly reached with the boom of the concrete pump.
In this way, the installation of piping, together with continuously having to move both this and the pump, can be avoided.

Currently we produce 4 different models, with or without counter-weight:

 

Horizontal placement boom type "DL"

This unit is the most economical and lightest of the ACME-boom series. The first section is mounted on a thrust-bearing, while the second section, as part of the delivery line, is structurally supported by a steel tie.
Usually this unit is mounted on a steel base which includes adjustable vertical outriggers.

On request a special connecting flange can be provided as well as different types of supporting columns.
There is no provision for an end placement hose for reasons of safety.
Usually the operation is done manually.
It is possible to provide the booms with DN 100 (4") and DN 125 (5") pipes of different connecting systems.
Radius reach: 10, 12 & 15/18 m.

Horizontal placement boom type "DR"

This unit is provided with two horizontal arms, which are mounted on a thrust-bearing.
Both arms support the concrete pipeline and allow the installation of the end hose, which must not exceed 3 m (118 in.) in length.
Usually this unit is mounted on a structural steel base which includes adjustable vertical outriggers.

On request a special connecting flange can be provided as well as different types of supporting columns.
It is possible to provide the booms with DN 75 (3"), DN 100 (4") and DN 125 (5") pipes of different connecting systems.
The operation can be performed manually or electro-hydraulically.
Radius reach: 10, 12 & 16 m.

Currently we also produce a special version particularly suited for use in the area of precasting.
It is the DR / B model.
It is fixed to the wall and can be maneuvered by hand extremely easily since the booms rotate on appropriately sized slewing rings.
Sizes: DN 75 (3"), DN 100 (4") and DN 125 (5") pipes of different connecting systems.

The operation can be performed manually or electro-hydraulically.
Radius reach: 10, 12 & 16 m.
 

Concrete placement boom type DRV

This is a dual unit, for horizontal and vertical application, designed to satisfy the particular needs of the site and to provide those operations which are not available in the type DL and type DR units.
The unique feature of being able to lift or lower the second arm by the operation of a hydraulic hand pump, makes it easier to place the

concrete even in walls, columns and floor slabs, at different levels.
Usually this unit is mounted on a base, which includes adjustable vertical outriggers.
On request a special connecting flange can be provided, as well as different types of supporting columns.
There is provision for a terminal rubber hose 1500 mm (59 in.) in length.
It is possible to provide the boom with DN 75, DN 100 and DN 125 (5") pipes, of different connecting systems.
The operation can be performed manually or electro-hydraulically
Radius reach: 10 m & 12 m

 

Concrete placement boom type BVZ

This unit is mounted on a robust structural steel base, complete with outriggers  and adjustable vertical stabilisers.
 Four wheels provided in the base structure, will facilitate the shifting of the whole unit on site.
The swivel vertical supporting column is connected to the base via the thrust-bearing.

On top of this column, the three arm "Z" design structure is hinged on one side, while on the other is mounted the counter-weight and hydraulic power-pack supporting structure.
The operation of each individual arm is by means of an hydraulic cylinder, provided with a safety release-valve to safeguard against accidental breakage of the hydraulic tubing.
The hydraulic power-pack is operated by an electric motor and includes a push-button control panel.
It is possible to provide the boom with DN 100 (4") and DN 125 (5") pipes of different connecting systems.
Radius reach:
DN100 (4"): 10/12 m - 11/13 m
DN125 (5"): 10/12 m
