  • Description

    New nine and 12-story apartment buildings like these have been appearing on the streets of Moscow.

    Experiments for these beautiful structures were made at a factory working for the Prokatdetal special designing office.

    This is where big buildings are born. All the ??? are made on an endless mill conveyer for rolling concrete parts, the BPS-6.

    This mill, designed by the Prokatdetal, is the biggest in the world right now. Its capacity is 500,000 square meters per year. This large scale of productions was achieved by reducing operation time from eight ??? hours and stepping up the conveyer.

    The concrete is mixed in a bunker, poured non-stop into the reinforcement forms, spread, and settled down by vibrators.

    Mechanization and automation have reduced the number of operators to five. All their work has been boiled down to controlling instruments.

    This enormous machine, more than 380 feet long, is being produced industrially. Thirty of its Brothers are working in different parts of the Soviet Union.

    The BPS-6 rolling mill has made it possible to build prefabricated housing factories with capacities of at ??? 70 nine and 12 story houses annually.
