ARMIES

The unbeatable performance of Carmix concrete mixers is also acknowledged by several armies around the world and also by the Italian armed forces, which uses them for constructing permanent buildings and installations required for military activities.

CONSTRUCTION OF BUILDINGS

Concrete is the best suited material for constructing residential or industrial buildings because it resists any compressive force. That is why it is essential to use only concrete made with an excellent and rigorous mixing process, which is what Carmix guarantees at every construction site.


 
 

CONSTRUCTION OF RAILWAYS, ROADS AND BRIDGES

Concrete pavements have a much longer lifetime than other materials and the need for maintenance is much lower. They can be built directly on site using self-loading Carmix concrete mixers that act as mini mobile plants able to tackle any type of ground. This is why concrete is also ideal for building railways and bridges. Its flexibility makes it resistant to strong changes in temperature and it can be used in the most futuristic applications.

EXCAVATION OF MINES AND TUNNELS

In a highly complex activity like mine construction, concrete is the ideal support for building load-bearing structures, pavements, canals, rocks and ducts owing to its enormous flexibility of use and highly resistance nature. This material also perfectly lends itself to supporting tunnels excavated in fragile rocks, to give the rock stability, to fill in cracks and holes and to cover the surface to prevent the infiltration of water. Using concrete as a cover is a method above all employed in the construction of tunnels with more complex structures and large cross-sections. Carmix concrete mixers prove to be a fundamental partner in all geological conditions for tackling the bumpiest ground and reaching the most difficult areas.

GROUND AND FOUNDATION CONSOLIDATION

All Carmix lend themselves perfectly to the construction of piling, foundations and ground consolidations, operations that must be done with great precision to ensure the structural stability of all structures.

PRECAST CONCRETE

The top quality concrete produced by Carmix makes possible to obtain high-quality precast products to be used in many projects, from landscape architecture to impressive buildings, not to mention bridge building. the moulds used to create precast concrete can be re-used an infinite number of times, and they offer efficient and cost-effective constructions in all weather conditions. they can be produced in large quantities based on the requested specifications so that installation is quick and the service is long-lasting.

PRODUCTION AND DISTRIBUTION OF ELECTRICITY

When building a power plant, a large amount of concrete is needed for use in the construction of infrastructure, such as canals, dams, ducts, stone roads, plants, etc. And often, the energy sources require that plants are built in critical or hard-to-access areas, and their ducts must be anchored to the ground using enormous concrete bases. This is why the self-loading Carmix concrete mixers, with four-wheel drive, steering and ability to climb even 30% gradients with full load, are the ideal solution for working even in the most awkward conditions.

URBANISATION WORKS

Carmix are ideal for construction of basic structures such as slopes, sections, bridges, buildings, roads and airports, where the high performance and excellent resistance of concrete are required. After a structure has performed the job for which it was built, the concrete can be crumbled and recycled to become an aggregate used for new pavements, as a filler or as a roadbed.
