VSM series - automatic cage welding machines

For the production of large pipes with bell and spigot end!

High degree of automation – low manpower requirement!
More reinforcement cages for your concrete pipe production in less time!

High performance fully automatic welding machines designed for the vertical production of high precision cylindrical cages of any length with or without bell for large diameter concrete pipes.

The VSM welding head rotates within the reinforcement cage being produced while at the same time the winding wire is being fed from the outside. This production method facilitates the fabrication of double cages.

Following completion of the outer cage the inner cage is simply fabricated inside it.

A sole operative is required to supervise the machinery

Key machine features:

  • Longitudinal wire feed directly from standard wire coils – no stocking of prefabricated longitudinal wires.
  • Over 30 % more output compared to other reinforcement welding machines thanks to continuous production
