A2: Mechanized Flexible and Reusable Moulds for Volumetric Components


Current Process:

Moulds are customised according to dimensions required to cast volumetric components such as Prefabricated Bathroom Units (PBU) and Household Shelters (HS).

As a result, many types of moulds would have to be fabricated to produce each different type of PBU and HS. These moulds are costly, take time to fabricate and are usually not reused.



General Requirements:

  • Mould design that can be automatically and mechanically configured in 50mm increments to produce different dimensions of PBUs and HS
  • Mould should be able to accommodate standard detailing requirements such as openings for windows and doors.
