Pallet circulation system for the production of solid walls - Consulting

At the beginning of 2017, B.T. innovation GmbH was commissioned by Attacus Betonghus AB from Sweden with the planning for the construction of a modern upgradeable circulation system. A particular challenge was to design the desired circulation system for the existing hall, since a large part of the hall was or is built with a basement.

The pallet circulation system was to be designed for special products for the Swedish market. These are primarily sandwich walls with completely installed windows, doors and ventilation units. In addition, all circulation-suitable precast concrete elements that are required for the system houses are to be produced in the plant.

“As Attacus paid great attention to standardised work processes in the previous production of wooden houses, this was a clear requirement for the planning of the new circulation system. This concerned both the optimisation of the concrete elements and many details in the circulation system and the adjacent areas of work preparation,” explains Bernd Schreyer, the planner responsible for this project at BT innovation. “The climatic conditions as well as the requirements due to the existing halls, especially the partial basement, were additional challenges that had to be taken into account.”

With the new circulation system, Attacus has set the course for the future at the Hammerdal site. Attacus is therefore able to offer both timber and concrete houses on the Swedish market. The significant increase in the quality of concrete houses contributes to the ability to implement demanding customer requirements in a high-quality, flexible and satisfactory manner.

Participating companies

B.T. innovation GmbH from Magdeburg took overall responsibility for the concept, planning and coordination. Sommer Anlagentechnik GmbH from Altheim supplied the production boards and the entire machine technology. The circulation plant controller and visualisation are also from Sommer. The laser projection system, the shuttering and the magnets were all part of the BT innovation package.
