Putzmeister RS 850 Column Placing System

Putzmeister's new RS 850 Tubular Column Placing System features a fully automatic hydraulic self-climbing system in an easy-to-assemble, compact design for high-rise pumping with greater flexibility. Using an M-profile design that incorporates the self-climbing and delivery systems into a smaller footprint - just three-feet-three-inches (1.00m) square, allows for a smaller floor opening to deal with, and no carrying heavy components from one floor to the next. The use of a pin connect system in which pins are inserted, tightened and can be reused, rather than time-consuming bolted connections, enhances efficiency and overall cost savings.

The RS 850 work platform is safe, practical, quick to install and compact for transportation. Three-quarters of the platform and all of the tower sections can be asssembled at ground level while the final section is simply clicked and secured.

The RS 850 Tower Placing System's automatic hydraulic self-climbing system features simple column connections, a rapid disconnection system and a removable work platform. At the start of climbing, the pivoting pawl holds the placing boom at the top while the climbing cyliner retracts again for the next lift.

The RS 850 Tubular Column can be set up in several ways depending on the construction site.

  • Ballasted base -  the best option on a spacious site
  • Cruciform base with anchors - can be integrated in a climbing framework or slip-form
  • Compact base with a tie rod basket fixed to base - ideal for a congested job site

If a base plate and floor are already completed, a cruciform base is not needed. Instead, the tubular column is held with four base plates and floor corner brackets in the first ceiling. The brackets are significantly lighter and more compact than other ceiling frames.
