Presents design and applications of machinery for on-site manufacture and erection of concrete wall panels and roof slabs to create single-story buildings. The precast components are produced and erected with trailer-mounted rotatable and lifting forms. The basic plant requires two or more technological cycles to erect a bay, while a modified version can build a single-room bay in one cycle. Sizes of the bays and design of the structures are intended to meet housing requirements in developing and industrialized countries. Due to the simplicity of the design, high productivity of the machinery and diversity of the product, the suggested forming system can be an effective craneless method of precast concrete construction.
