Concrete spraying in a compact package 07 Nov 2019

Normet News Release

Safe and efficient concrete spraying operation even in the most confined places is offered by the new Minimec shotcreting machine from Normet. Agile yet powerful, the Minimec fits into the same space as a nozzleman and outperforms handheld spraying in safety, reach and productivity.

Minimec machines are used in projects with limited access, such as cross passages, shaft excavations and small adits, in which the conditions limit the size of the equipment that can be used. Despite its small size, Minimec can apply the full capacity of the spraying pump, improving process performance. For increased safety and user comfort, the machine has a remote driving system, which allows the operator to drive and spray from a safe distance.

Normet is continuously working to improve the concrete spraying process. Earlier this year, it launched supporting technologies for spraying, the most significant of which are:

  • SmartSpray, increasing the automation level of the spraying process; and
  • SmartScan, a system to measure concrete layer thickness to improve quality control, inspection and reporting.
