IPOH, 14 DECEMBER 2018: The department from Design Management and also Specialist Services & Technical Cooperation from Lembaga Lebuhraya Malaysia (LLM) were attend thetechnical visit in our factory and also site visit at Manong Bridge, Perak. The purpose of this visit is to show them the products in our factory and also doing inspection . They were given a short presentation on Dura products by Prof Ir. Dr. Voo Yen Lei about Ultra-High-Performance Fiber Reinforced Concrete to educate about UHFPRC and to create an understanding on it’s applications as to how it can be more sustainable compared to current technology and also introduction of Dura company. Following that, the guests and other participants were impressed by the possibility and the capability of the product during demonstration of casting and also testing of cube compressive strength test.
After short presentation, the guests were taken to Wilson Hall to show our products material and the process of making UHPFRC to know what high strength concrete can do. They have been showed the design of the UBG 3000 for Manong Bridge girders for them to see our production applications.
After the factory visit , they are going to site visit which located at Manong that is still on-going project. During the site visit, the honourable guest and participants were impressed by the possibilities and capability of this material.
IPOH: Faculty of Civil Engineering from Universiti Teknologi MARA (UiTM) students and their lecturer, Prof. Dr. Azmi Ibrahim had recently made an educational visit to our Dura Technology factory in Chemor on 29th November.
The purpose of the visit was to provide an opportunity for students to observe the products and materials used and the technologies used for the process of precast beams to shows that how it can be more sustainable and durable. Before the students going to the factory, introduction about Dura will presented by one of our engineer, Dr. Milad Hafezolghorani Esfahani.
Following that, it was an interesting experience as they have their opportunity to learned the demonstration on mixing of DURA material using small pan mixer, demonstration of cube compressive test, flexural and tensile test to show them the capabilities of the UHPFRC. Students managed to obtain in-depth information concerning the different material of the steel fibre which is hooked and straight.
In addition, the students were exposed to safety and health practices in our construction factory. The Dura factory is furnished with proper safety instructions and notices, which can be found all over the premises and have to be adhered to by all workers and visitors.Overall, the students gained a better understanding of the topics discussed in the classroom.
UiTM recognises the importance of providing students with more knowledge and experience in their field of studies. Similar workshops will be conducted in the future.
