Drainage Gutter Mold

Industry: Manufacturing

Description

Concrete drainage gutters are one of the most popular if people are looking for best price for the quiality. One of the steps in manuacturing process is a compaction of concrete using vibration. Mold itself is a structural design unit that widthstands signifficant repeatable load.

Challenges

Create low cost mold to produce concrete gutters that could be operated manually by single worker.

Key features

  • Mold should be easy to open, close and lock, strong enough to widthstand high frequency vibration loads while compacting concrete

Approach

Use sheet metal to reduce machining cost. Cut out extra material where possible to reduce the weight.

Results

Mold was created in the way that is easy to operate by a single worker and it widthtands repeatable vibration loads while making drainage gutters.
