Having been a reference point in the fabrication of concrete and mortar pumping equipment for more than 50 years, Putzmeister has developed into a strong partner in the difficult field of tunnelling and mining, especially for shotcrete equipment, but also for material transport or other applications. The Germany-based company has been present in the concrete spraying market for more than a decade, developing high-quality equipment in strategic alliance with the Swiss chemicals company Sika.
In response to the increasing importance of shotcrete technology in the field of stabilising excavations in tunnelling and mining, Putzmeister has now launched a new website dealing exclusively with this line of business. The aim of the website is to offer a better service to this specific target group by providing a central reference point both for product and contact data, available to customers worldwide who are in need of concrete spraying equipment (i.e. mine developers and construction companies involved in tunnel projects).
In the section “Product Range”, the website offers comprehensive product information on Putzmeister shotcrete machines, including mobile spraying robots and trailer-mounted units. The information provided includes technical data (dimensions, weight, details of components), technical drawings, photographs and the latest brochures of the following machines available for download:
- Sika PM 4207, the compact concrete spraying equipment for working in small to medium sections, especially for the rough conditions of mining
- Sika PM 500 for medium and large tunnel sections
- Sika-PM5212, a particularly flexible and mobile concrete spraying machine to be mounted on a two-axle or a three-axle truck
- AST 25 robotic nozzle manipulator for small tunnel sections in underground work
- Double-piston concrete pump Sika PM702 for hand-held concrete spraying
In addition to product information, visitors to the new shotcrete website will easily find the contact information of the Putzmeister subsidiary or official dealer in their region in the “Worldwide” section, including direct phone numbers and email addresses of the respective contact persons. The overview of the extensive network of representations in more than 50 countries is clearly arranged by continent and country, so that it only takes a few clicks to know how to get in touch with the right person.
In the section “Events”, Putzmeister will keep visitors of the website informed about important fairs and congresses in the tunnelling and mining world. The “News” section will be used to provide current information on Putzmeister´s worldwide shotcrete-related activities, for example the use of their equipment at the Pahang-Selangor Raw Water Transfer Project in the central area of Malasia, which aims to meet future water demand in the Selangor / Kuala Lumpur region.
