TAC System Formwork manufactures the TAC formwork building system. A 100% home-grown building technology that has been designed to suit Malaysian and Asian building industry.
It consists of pre-engineered aluminium panels according to the architectural plans to form all the concrete structure found in the building superstructure, i.e. the walls (external and internal), floor slabs, columns, beams, stairs, window hoods, curved sections and other intricate decorative features. TAC formwork system is flexible, lightweight and suits all building types without the need to rely on heavy cranes and other heavy construction plant and equipment.
In fact, one set of TAC equipment for a typical project/building would consist of several thousand individual pieces of aluminium sections which will be connected together and produce a “mould” for concrete pouring to cast the various structural components of the building. The equipment will then be dismantled and used repetitively for up to 200 repeats.
With its highly efficient and flexible work schedule in the system, a TAC formwork system can construct a building at the rate of 4 to 5 days per floor as compared to 10 to 15 days per floor for conventional systems.
The Design Process
The superstructure of any building development is the most important and all other works such as electrical wiring, plumbing, etc. will have to be coordinated together. TAC System Formwork works closely with the contractors, architects, and the structural engineers at the early stage of planning for the construction.
Upon receiving the structural and architectural drawings of the project, we design our aluminium formwork to meet your structural requirements.
At the design stage, the computer-aided designing (CAD) is a very intricate designing process. We will liaise with all the parties involved to ensure all discrepancies are resolved and each of the components panels will form together to create the required building shape.
The Manufacturing Process
Once the design process is completed, the formwork manufacturing begins and upon completion. With manpower and heavy machinery in the factory, we ensure a smooth completion of your project.
The manufacturing of the formwork equipment includes aluminium welding, cutting the fully extruded aluminium profiles. The manufactured products are known as components come in all sorts of shapes and sizes. Each set of TAC System Formwork equipment has a combination of various components in various quantities. Generally about 80% of these components are “standards” depending on projects that can be used for more the one project and the remaining 20% are designed specifically for a particular structures.
The lead time between the receipt of the drawings and arrival of equipment to the site is about 12 weeks.
The Field Application
In order to ensure a well-coordinated building construction and successful completion, our qualified team will provide continuous support and project assistance. With the equipment on site, a site manager/ engineer will coordinate with client supervisors/ foremen and crew, varying in number, depending on the size of the project which can range from 20 to more than 100 workmen to construct the building complete with all internal and external walls, stairs, lift shafts, balconies, hoods, etc. at the rate about 6 days per floor.
Detailed field working drawings are supplied by TAC design office to facilitate easy use equipment at job sites. In the case of exports to overseas, TAC System Formwork will undertake to send trained technicians to help the buyers to fix and used the equipment.
