Part one :Introduce of Aluminum formwork
The Aluminium formwork born in the United States in 1962 has been widely used nowadays for global concrete structure in developed countries such as America and Canada newly industrialized countries such as Mexico, Brazil, Malaysia, South Korea and India after 50 years of development. Aluminium Formwork can be used more times compared with the traditional formwork. It is light with the average wight of 23 - 27 kg/m2, convenient to use and easy to install, thus saving the labor cost and shortening the working period. Meanwhile it makes the concrete surface flat smooth basically reaching the demand of veneer and water coagulation, which greatly improves the project quality.
Part two : Advantage of Aluminum formwork
Antai Formwork can be used more than 300 times so ROI is maximised with multiple projects.
Average weight is only 23 - 27 kg M2 so no heavy lifting or cranes are required.
Simple to use
Can be assembled with non-skilled labour with simple training and no special tools required.
Fast build cycles
Typical cycle time of 1 floor every 4-5 days or 1 single storey house a day are achieved with Antai Formwork solutions.
Aluminium formwork is 100% recyclable at the end of its usability.
Reduce site rubbish
Constant reuse keeps the construction clean, safe and tidy.
Antai design team are highly experienced in designing formwork solutions for multiple types of building and applications.
Strength & Stability
High load bearing capacity of up to 60 KN per M2 when assembled.
Achieves a high quality finish after formwork removal with only minimum "skim" coat required and no heavy plastering.
Low carbon emissions
Reduce building costs
Substantial direct and indirect building cost reduction is achieved with Antai aluminium formwork solutions.

Wall platform , Slab platform
As a substitute of a scaffolding system, these wall platform , slab platform and elevator platform will be fixed on the concrete .(Wall/Slab/Elevator) and used aas working platform for workers.
The Flat tie is used to joint the wall panel to the opposite side's wall panel. Depending on the wall panel's height , the number of flat tie used will vary
Made of PVC material , the PVC sleeve will be installed between the Wall panel and the opposite side's wall panel . The flat tie will be inserted inside this item in order to protect the flat tie to be casted within the
The pipe support is used to support the weight of the slab during concrete pouriing and casting . it will remain under the prop head until 2 levels of casting
The Waller-bracket and Square pipe are used to allow the horizontal straightness of wall panels and a flat wall surface (especially at the bottom) after concrete casting
This set of accessories will be used as an embedded anchor in order to fix panels on the concret surface during its installation
This accessory will be used as an embedded anchor in order to fix the Bracket on the concrete surface during its installation
Setting process of Aluminum formwork
Standard aluminum construction process:
Wall formwork → beam formwork → staircase formwork → formwork acceptance → concrete pouring → quality acceptance → demolition of the mold (first installed after the demolition) → transported to the next layer of construction.
Wall Panel Positioning
Beam Panel setup
Stari and elev-pit setup
Slab panel setup
Completion of slab panel setup
Installation of electrical , plumbing
Step of make Aluminum formwork
Aluminum formwork system construction preparation process is as follows:
The drawings completed→ drawings audit by the aluminum formwork technical engineers, offer → contract content confirmed, signed a contract → technical engineers design with mold designs (formwork assembly designs) → produciton according to the drawings → pre-assembled in factory → inspection qualified → delivery to construction site → working site construction.
(1) Standard production period of aluminum formwork from the deepening drawing design to trial assembly need 60 days;
(2) The drawings and plans provided to the aluminum formwork factory include: architectural drawings, structural drawings, decoration plans, hydropower plans, outer racks, laying holes etc .; drawings should be issued by the project department and have issued recording;
(3) After completion of the deepen drawing, the aluminum formwork factory should send the drawings to the project department, design department, wall panel factory, General contractor etc., the project department is responsible for organizing each department participate in the joint audit confirmation;
(4) After trial assembly aluminum formwork , the project department, the general contractor, the supervision and the engineering and technical department shall confirm the aluminum formwork node, the fastening system, the size deviation, the window (beam and wall) pressure groove etc.. If there have problem should email to related personnel;
(5) Aluminum formwork factory establish their own serial number coding map and number for each part of formwork ;
(6) The transfer of the aluminum formwork must be handled for three parties, the aluminum formwork transfer data: Die drawing, aluminum formwork serial number coding map, aluminum formwork fastening system drawing , aluminum formwork, three parties signed the receiving report, aluminum formwork construction technique hand-over.
(7) The first three floors of aluminum formwork must be carried out aluminum formwork precision inspection by third party before pouring concrete, aluminum formwork comprehensive accuracy are not less than 90%, single not less than 80%.
