THE REBAR PROCESSING CENTRE FOR REINFORCED CONCRETE
F.lli Simonetti is qualified to handle the entire construction process: from foundations to interior finishes. A strategic part of the company is our rebar processing centre that opened in 2000. Located in the Castelfidardo facility , it spans over 2300 square meter area and employs 5 workers on the shop floor and 3 technical designers.
The centre is equipped with a cutting carriage with a bending facility, a Eura 20 dual direction bender, two automatic stirrup machines, two foundation pile manufacturing machines for piles up to a diameter of Ø1500mm and finally the SPIREX three-dimensional continuous pitch stirrup machine.
THE SPIREX STIRRUP MACHINE (www.spirex.it)
It is one of our company’s finest pieces of equipment. It is the first machine of its kind installed in Italy and attests to the company’s commitment to facing up to all construction site challenges.
The “SPIREX continuous stirrup with vertical arms and variable pitch” (Schnell patent) represents a new generation stirrup that finally meets the expectations of engineers and operators in the building sector. SPIREX is a single piece of steel rod that wraps around the longitudinal reinforcement of the structure without interruptions, with a variable pitch along the transversal axis of the element.
This new type of continuous stirrup eliminates all the errors that can occur on the jobsite during reinforcement installation and which often are the main cause of the structural problems encountered in reinforced concrete buildings.
The use of the Spirex continuous stirrup is recommended by the Department of Civil Engineering, Federico II University of Naples.
