“Iron Monster” from China. The recording is impressive [Wideo]

The SLJ900 / 32, the so-called “Iron Monster”, may be further proof that China can become the dominant force in the construction market. “Monster” at work makes an amazing impression.

China is involved in the construction of road infrastructure along the route of the former Silk Road as part of the project “One lane and one road“, which has been in development since 2013. It includes, among others, the construction of roads and highways that will connect around 70 countries.

For such an ambitious project to succeed, it was necessary to develop new technologies for building roads and bridges. One of the effects of engineers’ work is SLJ900 / 32 known as “Iron Monster”which can position prefabricated road and bridge elements at a speed of 5 km / h.

“Iron monster” was built by Beijing Wowjoint Machinery Company. The machine itself is gigantic – it weighs 580 tons, is 91 meters long, 9 meters high and 7 meters wide. In addition, it does not have to be operated by as many employees as traditional construction cranes.

In the video below you can see how “Monster” is doing at work. I must admit that the recording is very impressive and the speed of the SLJ900 / 32 is amazing.

Although the machine works great and really makes the work of the Chinese easier, its life is very limited. The “iron monsters” can work for about 4 years, which corresponds to about 700 bridge spans erected at that time. Critics of the solution also point to the negative effects for the local economy that will be transferred by the use of “Monsters”. Still, it cannot be denied that the Chinese have momentum.
