Iron Monster crawls between supports
Once the supports are in place, it is usually a slow process to combine them by means of bridge segments. For every segment, large cranes and scaffolding must be moved into position, which is not easy in steep, impassable terrain. So, the Chinese Wowjoint company has developed the SLJ900/32 bridge builder, also known as the “Iron Monster”. The 580 t and 90 m long machine can link supports all by itself.
