Concrete Contractors Turn Towards Latest TwinTier® Rebar Tying Technology for Increased Productivity
Plainview, NY, (February 4, 2021) – In a world where technology continues to grow and adapt to its end-users, businesses of all sizes are looking at opportunities and advancements for overcoming challenges, by investing in the tools and resources needed to increase productivity and enhance operations. Since 1993, MAX USA Corp. has been pushing the threshold of technology by continuing to deliver a unique solution to the labor-intensive rebar tying industry. Rodbusters and ironworkers alike spend countless hours manually tying rebar combinations of all sizes to help build and support the infrastructure that keeps concrete construction moving in the field.
In 2017 MAX introduced the latest rebar tying platform to the market, the TwinTier® – the revolutionary rebar tying technology, that combines over 20 years of R&D and engineering excellence to deliver a unique solution that provides enhanced safety in the field, measurable cost savings, and overall improved efficiency. The first and only of its kind, uses a PAT pending dual wire spool to help increase strength and durability with each tie.
Many contractors who are familiar and currently use MAX RE-BAR-TIER® tools have been making the switch from the RB398 to the TwinTier platform for its range of advantages. From double the performing speed of approximately ½ a second per tie, to its remarkable 4,000 ties per battery charge, the benefits outweigh and surpass the need to service legacy RE-BAR-TIER® tools that are getting older in the market.
The innovative engineering integrated into this new platform has allowed our engineers to develop PAT pending procedures such as the wire pull-back mechanism that autonomously dispenses the precise amount of wire needed to form a tie, helping to reduce cost on material. Additionally, a PAT pending wire bending mechanism helps to produce a short tie height that helps avoid tripping hazards in the field, while requiring less concrete to cover each tie.
“Whether tying #3 x #3 mats on bridge jobs, or large bar combos such as #9 x #10 in commercial foundations projects, MAX offers three excellent tools, the RB441T, RB611T, and our latest Stand-Up TwinTier® the RB401T-E, offered exclusively through our dealers and distributors both here in the US and Canada for a range of active construction jobs. Additionally, we offer training regularly on all of our TwinTier® tools so that dealers and end-users can learn about the many benefits, participate in Q&A’s and also learn ahead of time about promotions and contest offered.” – Terry Kobayashi, TwinTier® Product Marketing Executive
