Contractor’s World takes a look at the scope offered by onboard weighing scales for loaders against other forms of material weighing.


Track system revolutionizes quarry and recycling operations

Water jet contractor cuts 1.4 m (55 inch) access in nuclear waste storage tank

In freezing temperatures and the challenges of running remote-controlled ultra-high pressure water jet equipment from a distance of 90 m (300 ft) distance, the contractors used a specially engineered abrasive water jet cutting machine to make the huge cut through 380 mm (15 inches) of concrete and steel rebar.


25 storeys, floor by floor without crane

The development of a 25-storey office tower block features a special construction method in which, for all vertical structural components, in particular, the walls of the building cores, reinforced concrete is used while a steel skeleton with precast slabs forms the horizontal structures.
