Tilt Tables

A Tilt Table is a free-standing, hydraulic powered machine that can be used to efficiently and effectively rotate flat products from a horizonal position to a vertical position. Use of a tilt table allows the use of less reinforcement steel while lessening product cracking. Any flat panel or like product laying horizonal with the bottom edge against the fixed edge support can be rotated for movement. The hydraulic system smoothly rotates the frame or table, supporting the product to approximately an 80-degree position to avoid flexure cracking when lifting the product for finishing or shipping. This system allows for a safe, easy, damage free option for rotation and movement of the product while decreasing crane time and labor.

Options Available include:

  • Custom table lengths and widths
  • Multiple power inputs
  • Variety of load capacities

Median Barriers

Median Barrier forms may vary greatly in height, width, and geometry depending on state requirements. Other design factors are permanent or temporary placement, tapered or transitional designs, and highway or surface street applications. Forms are generally designed to cast the product upside down in drafted forms.

Optional Features Include:

  • Single line and dual line forms.
  • Drainage Blockouts on top of the form.
  • Stake Pocket Blockouts in many configurations.

Stairs

Hamilton Form designs and manufactures a stair form to fit your specific needs. A fixed tread stair unit may be cast in a flat position with fixed or adjustable sides for width adjustment. If your requirements call for different and variable products, Hamilton Form makes an adjustable System. The product is cast on edge with adjustable and removable treads. An internal soffit works as a template to adjust the riser from 6 inches to 7 inches. Landings and throat areas on both ends of the stair unit are adjustable from 6 inches thick to 10 inches thick.

Optional Features Include:

  • Tread units to accept copings
  • Multiple soffit sizes for different configurations
  • Soffit risers for multiple width products
  • Saf-T-Mate™ Catwalk System

Towers and Vaults

Stair/Elevator Towers and Vaults are built to match precasters’ requirements. Tower forms are designed to cast a single piece box for stairs or elevator shaft. Your product requirements determine minimum and maximum lengths, widths, and sizes it need to expand to. Wall thicknesses are adjustable by moving sidewalls and changing soffits. Inner cores are hydraulically collapsible and outer forms roll back on tracks.

Vault/box forms are like Tower forms with some differences. Vaults will have a fixed core to create a 5-sided structure. Cores can have multiple chambers, slopes, and depths. Side forms can be rolled away, lifted away, or hydraulically opened to lay flat.

Optional Features Include:

  • Multiple vibration choices built into cores and sides
  • Saf-T-Mate™ Catwalk System

Battery Mold

Battery Molds are an efficient way to produce panel and wall sections vertically. Two stationary forms are typically built with a catwalk between them allowing for a safe and easy working platform to both molds. A soffit bolts in place on the support framework for the outside form to roll into place against while casting. After casting, the outside form rolls away for easy striping. Top-ties and underties spaced properly maintain critical dimensional tolerances. Soffits can be elevated on risers to vary panel heights. Mats may be used for almost any textured finish.

Optional Features include:

  • Integral pour spouts for narrow products.
  • A variety of top and end configurations are available.
  • End bulkheads as well as internal headers allow for product size changes.
  • Multiple soffit widths are available for use with the same forms.
  • Saf-T-Mate™ Catwalk System

Casting Tables and Deck Slabs

Steel top Casting Tables And Deck Slab Forms are being utilized for casting a variety of flat products by precasters.
