About Foundation technology
Fast, reliable and cost-effective
Van Berlo Funderingstechnieken designs and manufactures the Mini Vibro Pile, a fully automated foundation system for use in building construction and infrastructures, which allows an average of 250 piles (depending on length of piles) to be placed per day. Piles can be produced in different lengths and shaft sizes, with our engineers responsible for making correct calculations and drawings. If you have any questions about using the Mini Vibro Pile, please contact us.

The Mini Vibro Pile is a pile formed in the soil with a diameter of 180, 219 or 273 mm .The pile is made by driving a pipe into the soil, then filling it with concrete. The tube is vibrated during filling. This tube is closed at the bottom with a separate lid. The lids are accurately placed in advance, predefining the positions of the piles. The vibrations and sound levels created during the process are much lower than those generated by driving prefab piles. The pile is then finished at the required height. Placing permanent formwork at the ground level facilitates finishing above the bedding (floors with insulation). The pile is then reinforced at the top by inserting a Ø 12-mm rod over a length of 1 m.To prevent the reinforcement rod from sinking, it is held at the top of the pile by a brightly colored float. This bright color also marks the rod during building, helping to prevent damage. Different diameters of reinforcement rods can be inserted, or reinforcement cages can be placed. The production process is fully automated. Both the pile point level and filling level are pre-determined.
The machine registers a number of values, including the drawing number, the pile number, the length of the pile, the penetration speed, the pull-down moment, the pile content and the injection speed. In addition, the verticality of the tube is registered. This data is shown on a computer screen, and can be accessed online. Van Berlo Funderingstechnieken is proud to to be a company where excellent service is a priority. To us, service means making every effort to serve our customers as agreed.
