Why now?

The construction industry is one of the most important sectors worldwide and an important driver of the overall economy. Nevertheless the industry lags behind compared to other sectors like manufacturing and agriculture when it comes to productivity. Obviously the complexity of the industry with so many parties involved in one single project doesn’t make it easier to implement new solutions.

Click to see two charts (from McKinsey&Company) about the development of productivity in the different sectors and the opportunity that lies in the usage of productivity increasing solutions.

BAMTEC is the fastest rebar solution for slabs, ground slabs and walls.

Click on the charts below to get an idea about the great potential BAMTEC generates in terms of time savings. The productivity boost in the steel fixing process is stunning. Contractors and sub contractors are winning program security to a great extent, which adds value to their services, internally and externally.

BAMTEC is prefabricated AND tailor-made

Total Flexibility: One BAMTEC element can contain different bar sizes, length and spacing leading to a unique flexibility, which reduces waste and overlapping. Fixing rebar for complex shapes and footprints is not anymore complicated.

Find on this chart also an example calculation of how to reach a rebar-mat of 337 m2 / 3627 square feet with a weight of 1.338 kg. This mat is installed in less than 15 minutes on-site.

You may wonder, that a solution like that requires an unreasonably high output a year. We don’t think so. See the productivty of the BAMTEC machine and the yearly output in combination with a rough break-even indication.

Remember: This chart is based on a 1-shift operation of 8 hours a day and the assumption of an average diameter of 14 mm. If you are interested in a capacity calculation or detailed economic efficiency calculation – get in touch with us.
