At HawkeyePedershaab there are times where we ask our engineers to focus on the task at hand and at other times we ask them to let their imaginations run wild. It was during the latter that Smartcast was conceived. Developed in conjunction with the Dansk Teknologisk Institut, a Danish engineering think-tank, Smartcast shatters the mold of the old ways and introduces a new era in monolithic manhole base production.
More than just a machine, Smartcast embodies a concept, in essence, a whole-plant. A holistic forming and production system for the creation of wet-cast base sections with an infinite number of channel possibilities and the highest quality production.
The Smartcast system mills channel-forming mold out of EPS (Expanded Polystyrene) with a Kuka Industrial Robot through a user- friendly, proprietary PC-Human interface –creating the world’s easiest and highest-quality system for the production of monolithic manhole bases, with manhole diameters possible up to 2500mm (96”).
