Sheet Pile Pressing Machines

The vibration free installation of sheet piles is required more and more nowadays. For example in urban areas or for near shore works next to vulnerable structures, buildings, constructions or underground utilities. Foundiz supplies several types of sheet pile pressing machines for different kinds of applications.

    Sheet Pile Pressing Machine - Vibration Free

    In scenarios where project requirements demand a vibration-free approach, the hydraulic sheet pile pressing machine emerges as the solution. Foundiz proudly offers sheet pile pressing machines from Dawson Construction Plant, also known as the Push Pull machines.

    Modular & easy to modifie

    The Dawson Push Pull machines are available with 2, 3 and 4 rams. The Push Pull sheet pile pressers are the most powerful sheet pile pressing machines available in the market. Besides pressing sheet piles they are also very suitable for sheet pile extraction. The Push Pull machines can be used in a leader guided configuration but also free-suspended. Also special applications are possible such as box piles. The Push Pull machines are robust and designed in a practical way.

    The rams are modular and the sheet pile pressing machines therefore can be modified to the required configuration. The Push Pull machines are equipped with an adjustable guidance system which prevents rotation of the piston rods and helps align the piles. The clamps of the Push Pull machines are designed in such a way that it has a powerful wedge grip action.

    About the push pull Sheet Pile Pressing Machines

    The essence of the Push Pull concept is illustrated as follows: The robust hydraulic clamps grip the upper section of interlocked steel sheet piles. Utilizing a downward crowd force from the piling rig, the clamped piles are pressed into the soil until the maximum pull-down capacity of the piling rig is reached. While maintaining this initial pull-down load, the hydraulic Push Pull rams apply vertical force to a single sheet pile while simultaneously exerting a counterforce on the rest of the grouped piles. Once all the piles within the group have advanced by the full stroke of the Push Pull rams, the entire pressing mechanism retracts, primed to repeat the cycle.

    Precision during sheet pile installation?

    Push Pull machines ensure precision through their innovative approach. The hydraulic clamps seize the upper portions of interlocked sheet piles, subsequently utilizing controlled forces to press these piles into the soil. By maintaining a consistent pull-down load and strategically applying force differentials, these machines achieve a highly controlled and accurate sheet pile installation process.
