Who makes the bed?
There is an old English proverb “you make the bed you lie in”, meaning a person’s circumstances are normally the result of his or her own actions. In precast production, the casting bed is a surface that may be used for casting hollow-core slabs and other extruded or slipformed precast products. The basic principle is still the same as in the proverb: The quality of the steel bed relates directly to the quality of the end product and the lifetime of the bed itself. As a consequence, profitability is the result of making the right investments. Concrete Issues Magazine challenges all precasters to ask themselves: Who makes the bed you lie in?
