An outline of the broader technical developments in the concrete pipe industry over the past 50 years, including manufacturing processes such as hand tamping, mechanical tamping, packing with the packerhead, casting with variations of vibration and vacumn processes, centrifugating, pounding or rolling, and variations such as tamping with vibration, or centrifugation with rolling and vibration. These technical improvements have resulted in a product characterized by thin walls, high strength, and long life.
