Formwork Tie Rods – Threaded Bar Supply for Various Construction Projects

Formwork Tie Rod Types

What is Formwork Tie Rod?

A formwork tie rod is a crucial component used in construction to support and secure the formwork, which is the temporary mold or structure used to shape and support concrete until it hardens. In simpler terms, it helps in creating the desired shape and structure for concrete during construction. It is a tool used in the process of formwork fabrication to position and secure the formwork.

It typically consists of a rod body, rod seat, springs, and other components. The function of the formwork tie rod is crucial as it ensures the accuracy and quality of formwork fabrication.

Dimensions: The length of formwork tie rods is determined based on practical needs, and it affects the efficiency and precision of formwork fabrication. Generally, the length of the rod ranges from 500 to 2000 mm and can be customized as required. Additionally, the diameter of the formwork tie rod influences its performance, with common diameters being 8mm and 10mm.

Formwork Tie Rod Quality Certification

Formwork Tie Rod Classification:

Common materials for formwork tie rods include aluminum alloy and steel. Aluminum alloy is lightweight, easy to handle, while steel is heavier, offering high strength and suitability for large-scale formwork fabrication. The surface of formwork tie rods is often treated through processes like oxidation or coating. Different surface treatments enhance corrosion resistance and improve the appearance quality of the formwork tie rod.

Formwork tie rods can be classified into two main types based on their design:

Shear Tie Rods:

  • These tie rods are designed to resist the horizontal forces that act parallel to the surface of the formwork.
  • They help prevent the concrete from spreading or shifting sideways while it is being poured and as it sets.

Waler Tie Rods:

  • Waler tie rods are used to resist vertical forces that act perpendicular to the surface of the formwork.
  • They provide additional support to keep the formwork stable and prevent it from collapsing under the weight of the concrete.

Formwork Tie Rod Features:

  • Threaded Design:
    Most formwork tie rods have a threaded design, allowing them to be easily connected and adjusted to the required length. This threaded feature makes it convenient for construction workers to assemble and disassemble the formwork quickly.
  • High Strength:
    Formwork tie rods are made from materials with high strength, such as steel, to ensure they can withstand the loads and pressures exerted during the concrete pouring and setting process.
  • Versatility:
    These rods are versatile and can be used in various types of formwork, such as wall forms, slab forms, and column forms, making them essential in different construction scenarios.

Formwork Tie Rod Applications:

Formwork tie rods find widespread applications, from home renovations to large-scale construction projects. Therefore, different specifications and types of formwork tie rods are needed for various applications. Common specifications include φ10, φ12, φ14, and types include single rod, double rod, and triple rod.Formwork tie rods find applications in a variety of construction projects, including:

Building Construction:Used to create the formwork for walls, columns, and slabs in buildings.
Bridge Construction:Employed in the construction of bridge structures to shape and support concrete elements.
Tunnel Construction:Utilized in the creation of formwork for tunnels, ensuring the concrete maintains the desired shape during construction.

Precautions of Formwork Tie Rod

Formwork tie rods play a crucial role in the construction process by providing stability and support to formwork structures, it is a type of structural tie rod which allowing concrete to be shaped and set properly in various construction projects.

  • Select formwork tie rods with specifications, types, and dimensions that suit your needs.
  • Store them in a dry, well-ventilated place, avoiding direct sunlight during storage.
  • When in use, adhere to operational guidelines, avoid excessive force to prevent issues such as breakage or deformation of the formwork.

Anchor Cage Foundation Construction Process for Wind Mill Project

Anchor Cage Foundation Project

In recent years, wind power has been increasing in both the number and scale in China, however, most wind generator mainly used in wind farms adopt anchor cage foundation, main function of anchor plate is to connect the bolt and concrete structure, the upper structure of main parts, so the anchor plate is responsible for the wind machine structure are all load to the anchor cage foundation, ensure its structure with high stability. However, the foundation anchor plate is not deeply buried, the wall of the foundation anchor plate has few pores, the amount of internal reinforcement is small, there is no fixed pin, and the foundation reinforcement is not welded together, resulting in poor durability, load resistance and integrity of the foundation ring. The prestressed anchor bolt foundation is mainly distributed in the whole foundation by anchor bolt. The steel bar and anchor bolt adopt alternate frame, which has a high integrity. In addition, a high-strength tensioning tool is used to apply pretension on the anchor bolt, which enhances its durability and load-resisting ability.

Wind Foundation Anchor Cage
Wind Foundation Anchor Cage

The wind mill foundation used in a wind farm is a plate independent form, with a diameter length of 18 m and a buried depth of 3 m. The wind mill anchor cage foundation mainly applies the pre-stressed anchor and bolt technology and is installed in the construction site. The installation of high strength anchor bolts and anchor plate is strictly required. After secondary grouting, the flatness error of anchor plate should be controlled within 2 mm.

The pre-stressed anchor bolt foundation construction technology is used in many project, and the process is mainly as follows: pre-construction work, selection of embedded parts, setting and adjusting lower anchor plate, matching fixed anchor bolt and upper anchor plate, setting common anchor bolt, reasonably combining and inspecting anchor bolt, and then starting the construction of reinforcement and concrete.

Pre-construction of Anchor Cage Foundation

  • Determine the number of anchor bolts, check the appearance of upper and lower anchor plates, anchor bolts and thread, and clean up non-conforming materials.
  • The anchor bolt assembly shall be delivered to the site by loading truck and protected by cork pad to prevent deformation of the upper and lower anchor plate and damage to the original state of screw thread.
  • The embedded parts shall be retained, and the embedded parts of the anchor plate shall be set according to the standard of the foundation design drawing of the prestressed anchor bolt, and the quantity, size and position of the embedded parts shall be adjusted.

Set Down Anchor Plate and Adjust Its Flatness

  1. The lower anchor plate is mainly raised by the crane, and then moved to the position of 300mm above the embedded parts to stop the movement. First, the bolts of the lower anchor plate are inserted into the corresponding screw hole, and the bolts from inside to outside are exactly corresponding to the embedded parts. At this time, the crane lowers the lower anchor plate to the top of the embedded parts.
  2. The center of the lower anchor plate is matched with the foundation center. The bolts of the lower anchor plate and embedded parts are tightly welded together, and the height is controlled at ≥ 6mm.
  3. The plane of the lower anchor plate tends to be flat. By rotating the supporting anchor bolts, the lower anchor plate meets the height requirements of the drawing design, and its levelness is controlled at ≤ 3mm. Figure 1 shows setting the lower anchor plate and adjusting its flatness.

The Positioning Anchor Bolt and Upper Anchor Plate Are Paired Together

The upper anchor plate is hoisted by the crane, and the upper positioning anchor bolts are evenly matched from top to bottom on all bolt holes of the upper anchor plate, and then the anchor bolts are firmly fixed with temporary nuts. The anchor bolts are fixed with black nuts, and the outside of the anchor bolts is wrapped with PVC sleeves Tube, plus a heat-shrinkable tube sleeve. Nylon adjusting nut is used to fix the head of the anchor bolt.

The Upper and Lower Anchor Plates Are Precisely Matched

The upper anchor plate and the positioning anchor bolt are slowly raised and fixed directly above the lower anchor plate. The positioning anchor bolt and the matching bolt hole of the lower anchor plate are connected together. A gasket is placed below the lower anchor plate to fix the black nut, and the fixed torque is controlled at 300 N·m. FIG. 2 shows the exact matching of the upper and lower anchor plates.

Installation Work of Other Anchor Bolt Parts

After positioning anchor is fixed, the fixed anchor bolt is mainly based on the principles of diagonal sequence, ordinary bolt head through the first anchor plate, the other part through the anchor plate, based on the same principle, the other anchor fixed well, the bottom of the anchor bolt nut is fixed, with black coated PVC casing, and then add a layer of heat shrinkable tube, each floor installation gaskets, with black nut is fixed, the fixed torque control at 300 n. m.

Adjust and Check Anchor Bolt Assembly

  1. Adjust the concentricity of the upper and lower anchor plates. The Angle of the four bolts was measured by theodolite as 90°, which was taken as a reference. A pile was installed on the ground outside the wind power foundation at an interval of 90°, and was connected between the upper anchor plate and the pile with drag rope. The center line of the anchor bolt hole of the upper and lower anchor plate was regarded as a reference for adjusting the concentricity, and the standard length was within 3 mm.
  2. Adjust the level of anchor plate. The leveler is used to measure the levelness of the upper anchor plate. When the levelness does not meet the standard, the upper anchor plate shall be raised by jack and the nylon nut shall be further fixed to make the levelness meet the requirements.
  3. The excess length of the upper anchor plate at the anchor bolt head shall be controlled at L Within ± 1.5 mm.
  4. Heat the heat shrinkable tube, place the plug between the anchor bolt and the upper anchor plate anchor bolt hole, and fix the anchor bolt in the center of the anchor bolt hole.

Reliable Mining Roof Bolts Support for Your Mining Project

Mining Roof Bolts

Mining Roof Bolts Case Introduction

The mine engineering design annual production capacity is 1.8 million Ton, due to the complex geological structure in the minefield. In the design and construction of mining roof bolts support, support forms and parameters are selected based on experience or engineering analogy, so there are some problems, such as difficult roadway maintenance, low coal production rate and tight mining replacement. In order to solve these problems, take project mine roadway as the engineering background to carry out solutions based on the analysis of roadway deformation mechanism and support technical effect. The successful application of mining roof bolting, netting and cable combined support has important significance and practical application value for improving coal production rate, reducing support cost of mining roadway, and realizing high yield and high efficiency in mining roadway roof support.

In the construction and production of high-efficiency mines, the common mining roof bolts support has not been able to meet the requirements of mechanized large-scale production due to the fast construction speed. In order to solve the contradiction between the rapid excavation and the lagging of support, the combined support of high strength anchor bolt and anchor cable has been popularized and applied as the main support method. Mine roadway and semi-coal rock roadway are mainly mining rock bolted-net shotcrete, it is mainly bolted-net and anchor rock bolt + steel belt (or reinforced beam) support, general chamber also adopts rock bolt-net shotcrete + anchor cable support, only in special places (such as large ground pressure roof broken area) shed support. High strength roof bolt and cable combined support has the advantages of fast supporting speed, good effect and low cost.

Main Factors Affecting Mining Roof Bolts Support

  1. The design method of mining roof bolts support is not scientific. Although its specification for coal roadway has been formulated, engineering analogy method is adopted in most of the design, and the support form and parameters are not reasonably determined. It is possible that the support strength is too much higher than the required level, the roof support structure cost is too much, for mining roof bolts are wasted. In soft, and other special geological conditions under the support strength may be insufficient, there is a possibility of danger, as roof collapse and other accidents may occur.
  2. The supporting material quality of mining roof bolt fails to reach the requirement. There might be various reasons, such as steel quality, thread quality of processing, resin coil quality are directly affected by the quality of support.
  3. The monitoring instrument and technology of mining roof bolts have high accuracy. The accuracy and practicability of the commonly used instruments are not perfect, which can not reflect the effect of bolt support completely.
  4. Under the existing technical conditions, the construction factor is the key link that directly affects the reliability of mining roof bolts support. The construction personnel does not have enough knowledge of the rock bolting support theory, or skills to install rock bolt properly, and the installation and operation quality management of the rock bolting cannot meet the design requirements. Such as sometimes only do the mining roof support and ignore the roadway side and floor, or some workers are not skilled enough and lacks sense of responsibility resulting in bolt and cable support strength reduction.
  5. In the construction of roadway uneven rock bolt anchor plate is not close to the rock surface, resulting in the failure of the mining rock bolt installed with no prestress. Different machines, tools and techniques used in the installation process lead to different pre-tensioning forces and different growth of support resistance after the installation of adjacent mining roof bolts, which will affect the support effect.

Mining Construction of Roof bolts

Rock Bolt for Tunnel Roof Support

During the installation of the resin bolt, the bolt must be pushed to the bottom of the hole to achieve the anchoring force. The agitator should be gently pushed vigorously, in order to quickly coagulant and resin stir evenly. When installing the nut of bolt support plate, the resin should reach a certain strength. The curing rate of resin and the growth rate of strength are accelerated with the increase in temperature. Practice shows that when the construction temperature is above 5 ℃, the supporting plate can be installed within minutes after mixing.

When the construction site temperature is below 5 ℃, the installation time should be postponed appropriately. The construction sequence is as follows: firstly construct the middle bolt, then construct the side bolt, dig a row spacing for each row, install a row of bolts, and make the jacking bolt and the side bolt work in parallel as far as possible.

  • According to the design requirements to excavate the roadway section, and then laid roof net, steel belt.
  • Use a single bolt drill to push the anchor hole to the design depth, place resin coil inside the hole, super-fast coil at the bottom of the hole, medium-fast coil at the outer part of the hole, and then use the assembled bolt to send the coil to the bottom of the manhole.
  • Lay the side net, set up the steel bar and the tray, tighten the nut with the plank hand, that is, complete the installation of a side bolt.

How to Install Roof bolts for Underground Mining

Construction tips for roof bolts install: from top to bottom, from back to front in turn.

  1. Clean the coal side to make it reach the design section size, and then determine the anchor hole position according to the design requirements.
  2. With the first hit the upper of the coal electric drill for bolt holes to design depth pack resin cartridge, the drill with connector and bolt, and start the drill, stirring side, until the bolt head to the bottom of the manhole, time is about 20 a 30 s, and then stop waiting for medicine curing, constraints, 30 s and then start the drill to tighten the nut, bolt installation. Lay the side net, set up the steel bar and the tray, tighten the nut with the plank hand, which is, complete the installation of a side bolt.

Anchor Cable Construction Tips

  1. Cut the steel hinge line according to the design length, remove rust and sludge (especially the internal anchoring section), install burr and retaining ring in the anchoring head section.
  2. Fix anchor cable hole position according to design requirement, use single anchor bolt drill, drill pipe and rotary bit to drill anchor cable hole to design depth.
  3. To hole placed resin cartridge, cartridge of super fast on the hole bottom, the medium cartridge placed outside the hole section, and then gently with the prepared steel strand pushing resin cartridge to the bottom of the hole, with stirring connector connect steel strand and drill, start the drill, stirring edge ahead, until to push resin cartridge to the bottom of the hole, such as back drill after 2 min, mixing connector, complete anchor cable anchorage.
  4. After resin anchoring and curing for 30 minutes, install jostles, trays and locks, and make them cling to the roof, hang tensioning, open the pump for tensioning, and observe the blasphemies of the pressure gauge, until pretension is designed, tension is stopped, jack is removed, and anchor cable is installed.

Test shows that rock bolt for mining roof with low initial anchor force cannot effectively control the displacement and deformation of surrounding rock. After the deformation, it only relies on the bracket of the net, beam and steel belt to prevent it from falling, which will increase the support cost. So by simply increasing the strength of roof bolt rebar, and neglecting to increase the primary anchor force, the strength of rock bolt rebar cannot be effectively exerted. Strictly control the mixing, solidification and waiting time of anchoring agent to ensure that the anchoring force meets the requirements of setting a standard, and the roles of composite beams and reinforced effect.

To make the anchorage rock bearing structure form as one structure, improves strata bearing capacity through changing the lower strata stress, effectively reduce the deformation of surrounding rock of roadway surrounding rock control early abscission layer, to improve the reliability of roadway roof support. After roadway excavation, the failure of surrounding rock gradually develops from the bottom to the roof, which shows that strengthening the support of the side walls plays an important role in the stability of the mining roof support. Prestressed rock bolt can effectively control the displacement of coal roof and the side walls. The higher initial anchor force of the rock bolt is main force to form “rigid” beam and “rigid” wall structure.


Rock Anchor Bolt Design and Production Line Equipments

Rock Anchor Bolt after Threading

Right-handed rock anchor bolt adopts the design of right spiral rib and one-way right screw thread, reinforced pitch and anchor bolt connection internal thread can be directly and effectively coordinated, it has the following advantages: simple connection and anchoring, strong adhesion, safety and reliability, etc. It is mainly used in underground rail track support engineering of coal mine, for ensuring smooth underground railway safety and coal mine construction industry. Except for low strength and poor safety of domestic old type rock anchor bolt, there are also higher strength and high tensile rock anchor bolt being developed.

Rock Anchor Bolt Production Line – Equipment Introduction

Here is a sample of small steel mill for rock anchor bolt production. Steel Mill adopts all rolling system, the air and gas – double heat furnace, use steel billet as raw material, with alternate arrangement of 6 roughing mills, and finishing mill group in all 6 high rigidity of short stress mills , and setting controlled cooling after rolling equipment, which is 120 m x 10 m step cooling equipment.

High Strength Rock Anchor Bolt Production

Here are list of difficulties and aspects in combination equipments in small steel mills for anchor bolt production:

  1. High strength rock anchor bolt steel has high-performance requirements. The raw material composition of steel rebar cannot reach the required yield strength and elongation, so it needs to be controlled in rolling process and heat treatment after rolling. The finished rock anchor bolt yield strength requires high carbon content, but it will lead to poor elongation. There are clear requirements for elongation in the standard, which requires post-rolling heat treatment. However, there is no post-rolling heat treatment equipment in small steel mills.
  2. The difficulty of rolling process development lies in the fact that steel rebar produced needs to be directly fitted with nuts, which means its size has to meet the deviation of standard requirements, and the threads on both sides should be exactly on the same spiral line. Therefore, groove width, expansion angle and radius of the base circle should be reasonable in the design of the threading process, and the cross rib spacing and included angle of the finished hole should be precise in both the design and processing.
  3. The middle and finishing mill groups without vertical roll rolling of continuous rolling production line, which requires torsion rolling; The second flow balance of rolled pieces cannot be controlled accurately, and the end – end difference will occur. The steelhead and tail have an extra part basically, which influence finished production rate.
  4. High processing precision is required for of finished rock anchor bolt products rolling groove; consistent transverse rib spacing between upper and lower rollers; consistent transverse rib spacing between the same roll; the actual pitch spacing of rolled products shall be consistent with the target value, and the design value of the transverse rib spacing shall be taken into account of impacting of sliding forward, cold shrinkage and others.
  5. Rolling mill, reducer quality ensures the upper and lower roll speed synchronization, no axial movement for rolling mill.

In order to solve the above problems completely before test run production of rock anchor bolt rebar, marking threads similar to right-handed rock anchor bolt steel transverse ribs were selected for test verification during production, so as to shorten the process development period and improve the success rate.

Design of Rock Anchor Bolt

  • According to the use characteristics and dimensions of high strength rock anchor bolt steel, the design ideas of finished pass and finished front pass are determined:
  • The finished product’s inner diameter height and width of free expansion surface shall meet the standard requirements; transverse rib filling degree is guaranteed on the premise, width of free expansion surface is as close as possible to the lower limit of the standard;
  • Accurately measure the influence of forwarding sliding and cold shrinkage of Kl under certain conditions, and make corresponding data compensation during design, control the spacing deviation of transverse ribs within 0.2mm after the steel bar is cooled;
  • Determine the diameter of Kl rolls of different specifications and the number of transverse ribs processed according to the front slip value, outlet speed of rolled pieces, the distance between transverse ribs and adjustment form to ensure the alignment effect and accuracy;
  • Adjust the angle of the axis of the transverse rib, which can directly fit with the nut of the same specification under the condition of the horizontal rib alignment.

The proper calculation method of cross-rib alignment is determined through calculation and selection, so as the relationship between cross-rib phase error distance and adjustment parameters, the accurate rib alignment is realized through empirical data compensation, and the accuracy of roll turning and cross-rib machining is improved to create conditions for the successful manufacture of the high-strength rock anchor bolt.

Specifications of Rebar for Rock Bolt Tunnel Support

Rock bolt Tunnel support is an important direction of the development of coal roadway support. It is a technological revolution of coal roadway support. The progress of rock bolt tunnel support technology has accelerated the development of mining roadway industry. In the innovation of coal roadway technology, after years of research, Longton finally found the rock bolt support – extremely advantageous technology. The improvement of rebar rock bolt technology can greatly reduce the cost of coal roadway support, improve the safety mining work and improve the production efficiency to a new level.

Nowadays, rebar rock bolt tunnel support technology has become an indispensable technology in coal roadway support. In the supporting system, rebar rock bolt is the most widely used product. Here are some details of how high-quality rebar rock bolt is manufactured:

Mechanical Properties of Tunnel Rebar Rock Bolt

To understand the functions of the rebar rock bolt, you need to know exactly mechanical properties of rebar rock bolt.

Anchoring Performance of Tunnel Rebar Rock bolt

Rebar Rock Bolt is Rolled from Rebar

The rebar itself has a good connection for the special screw structure, it will make the connection more tightly and not easy to fall off. And with chemical resin added, the connection becomes more seamless, resin will strengthen the strength of the connection, so that the rebar rock bolt has a strong anchoring ability.

Pure Bonding Force of Rebar Rock Bolt

This bond is mainly related to the spacing of threads and tooth height. For bolt surface has threads, when it starts to work, the rod body rotates along the thread, and resin will flow down the direction of the rod rotation, so that the gap will be filled, which can make the stirring effect. Moreover, the threaded teeth are trapezoidal, which makes the resin contact area larger, it becomes more sticky and effective. Moreover, for the rock rod body is all threaded and of sufficient length, the rebar rock bolt can slide along the rod body to achieve the ideal fixing force without worrying about rod length.

Resistance of Rebar Rock Bolt

Because of the special structure and length of the rebar rock bolt body, the force between thread and resin will increase. During stirring, when the resin flows down the thread, the rod body and the binder bond together, will create resistance to the rebar bolt, and only by overcoming this force can normal stirring be carried out.

Anchorage Methods of Rebar Rock Bolt

Different anchoring methods can achieve different anchoring effects. For example, full-length anchoring of rock bolt can effectively reduce the deformation of coal roadway and avoid the transfer of coal roadway position. This is how the force on the rod body is uniform when the full-length anchorage is used. Of course, if there is a full-length anchorage, there will be a local anchorage, and the local anchorage is mainly at the end, anchoring the end. This is a relatively uneven force.

Application of Rebar Rock Bolt

Rebar Rock Bolts in Mining Stoping Roadway

The use of rebar rock bolt in stoping roadway can greatly reduce the displacement of roof and floor as well as the two sides. Moreover, under the anchorage of the rebar rock bolt, the roof is well protected and will not be deformed or destroyed.

Rebar Rock Bolts in Mining Expansion Roadway

The use of rebar rock bolt support in mining roadway development will greatly increase the safety of roadway. For every project, safety is always the first priority. This kind of support texture is particularly good, not easy to damage, can greatly reduce the cost of maintenance. For it has advantages of operation is more convenient and higher production, it can bring huge economic benefits to customers. The full-length anchoring of rebar rock bolt can effectively improve the stiffness of bolt support system and limit the deformation of surrounding rock. The full-length anchoring bolt can provide anchoring force, improve the stiffness of the bolt support system, and when the stratum separation and deformation occur along its length range, reduce the deformation of surrounding rock. Because the full-length rebar anchor bolt support system has more advantages than resin anchor bolt, the safety and reliability of the support system is higher, therefore, it is the best form of mining roadway bolt supporting system at present.

Rebar Rock Bolts Used in Tunnel

Many projects constructions requires to dig tunnels, such as mining, building tunnels and so on. The excavation of the tunnel will easily loosen the rock structure, which will easily lead to disasters of landslides, it is a threat to people’s personal safety. However, the use of rebar rock bolt – resin anchors above the tunnels during excavation will strengthen the connections between the rocks and effectively prevent the rocks from slipping. So the use of rebar rock bolt keeps the people in the mines safe, so as the carts and machineries get through.

In a word, the appearance of rebar rock bolt has brought great convenience to many projects, and we should make good use of the benefits brought by this technology. However, the technology shall never stop, but also continue to research and innovation, I believe that with continuous efforts, Longton will offer more and more good rock anchor bolt technology to benefit more industries, if you need heat-treated high strength steel rod products, such as wind anchor cage bolt, anchor stud bolt, full thread bars, feel free to contact us now!
