Bar Terminators Categories
INCON ICT – BAR TERMINATOR
INCON bar terminators (end anchors) are used in lieu of bent bars to achieve the required bond between concrete and the embedded reinforcement in all structural members.
SUBCATEGORY 1: ICT-F WITH ICS MALE COUPLER
Anchorage is achieved by screwing the ICS coupler onto the bar terminator.
SUBCATEGORY 2: ICT-B WITH ICS FEMALE COUPLER
Anchorage is achieved by screwing the bar terminator onto the ICS coupler.
IBT END ANCHORS – BAR TERMINATOR
Anchorage is achieved by screwing the threaded bar onto the bar terminator.
Technology for All Bar Terminators
INCON 3RD GENERATION SWAGING MACHINE
At INCON, we developed our high-tech third generation swaging machine which accelerates the workflow while enhancing the quality of the product. .
Simplicity and outstanding performance are key features of our swaging machines. They provide an immense 1000 T pressing force that reduces the swaging time of a 40 mm bar coupler to less than 15 seconds. The fully digital controlled system, touch screen, flexible die changing and laser metering technique make the construction process fast and accurate. It can operate efficiently under all weather conditions either on site or in workshops. The swaging mechanism does not require special preparation of the steel bars and does not alter their original mechanical properties. Using INCON swaging machine at site is the optimum way for our clients to overcome construction obstacles effectively, eliminate undesired labor and material costs, and enhance the integrity and performance of the structural system.
EFFICIENT INSTALLATION PROCESS
Swaging is a cold working manufacturing process that involves exerting a considerably large compressive force around the object’s circumference to alter its geometry. .
The process is performed by compressing the coupler around the profile of the steel bar to create a secured and strong mechanical interlock.
BEFORE COUPLER SWAGING
INCON couplers are engineered and manufactured to exceed the requirements of the strictest standards worldwide. The chemical composition and physical properties of our couplers are carefully examined to ensure that they maintain their strength, durability and high performance during and after the swaging process.
DURING COUPLER SWAGING
The coupler sleeve is swaged against the embedded steel bar by applying a radial compressive force on the outer surface. The external surface of the coupler takes the shape of the confining dies; whereas the internal surface becomes in full contact with the steel bar regardless of its grade or deformation pattern.
AFTER COUPLER SWAGING
The external surface of the coupler takes the shape of the confining dies; whereas the internal surface becomes in full contact with the steel bar regardless of its grade or deformation pattern. The load transfer mechanism between the steel bar and the coupler sleeve ensures that they act as one entity.
