Frontline’s Piling Machinery Available in Worldwide Markets
As early as the 1400s, evidence suggests that piling machinery was a consideration. In fact, a drawing of a mechanically sound pile driver appears in Martini’s Trattoto di Architectura. Initially, human or animal labor lifted weights that dropped onto the upper ends of piles. Obviously, how we operate this equipment in the market has changed a bit. However, the overall design is quite similar. To find the design that fits your project best, Frontline Construction Equipment can help.
Modern Types of Piling Machinery
First, let’s consider the different types of piling machinery available on the market worldwide. After all, some projects demand specialized machinery. Fortunately, Frontline has access to some of the best resources on the market in South America, the US and Europe.
Using a piston and cylinder working together, a diesel pile hammer is a two-stroke engine. Similar to most pile drivers, a raised weight drops utilizing a quick release method. While this equipment is efficient, it is not appropriate for all job sites. For instance, the use of diesel and the engine noise can be an issue in highly-populated areas.
Conversely, a hydraulic hammer is more environmentally acceptable. While the impact of the hammer on the pile still creates noise, it is generally less invasive than less-efficient machinery. Similarly, a hydraulic press-in uses hydraulic rams to press piles into the ground. If vibration is a concern at your jobsite, this system is sometimes best.
Additionally, vibratory pile drivers are another noise-mitigating option. Their system of counter-rotating weights cancels out horizontal vibrations. Therefore, these drivers also reduce noise. Especially, this is imperative on construction sites near residences or office buildings.
Finally, a piling rig is useful in foundation engineering. Mainly, this machinery adeptly drills in sandy soil, clay, etc. Often, it’s used in foundation engineering of municipal construction, expressways, bridges, water conservancy projections and slope protection.
