Service School Goes Down Under

Nearly 30 people attended the second Power Curbers Conference at the Crowne Plaza Surfers Paradise along Australia’s Gold Coast in January 2014. The conference, which drew attendees from Australia and New Zealand, focused on maintenance, safety, and problem solving, including live demonstrations of machine operation and 3D stringless technology.


Attendees learned about concrete technology, compliance and design, and safety from experts in the field, and also enjoyed question and answer sessions with members of the Power Curbers Product Support Team. Representatives from concrete suppliers were also on hand to share their slipforming experience and how Power Curber owners can best communicate their needs to concrete batch plants.


Perhaps the highlight of the conference was the visit to a job site to watch the Power Curber 5700-C equipped with TopCon’s 3D Millimetre system pouring curb without the need for stringline – even in a tight radius.


The attendees also enjoyed the opportunity to network with others in the slipforming industry and to learn from each other during the conference. Those who attended also enjoyed social events, such as dinners, shows, and a golf outing together.


Aran Australia, the Power Curbers dealer for Australia and New Zealand, organized and presented the conference in partnership with Power Curbers Product Support.
