Worldwide market leader PTC specialises in designing and manufacturing piling appliances and equipment for ground stabilisation. They played a leading role in the development of vibrating hammers (vibrodrivers). In the early seventies, the company was the first to launch hydraulic vibrating hammers and the first to introduce high-frequency vibrating hammers (with variable amplitude control).



Which Vibrodriver best suits your job depends on the proximity of piling to existing vibration-sensitive structures. If piling is carried out in a vibration-sensitive area (in a city center next to buildings), you need a Vibrodriver with variable torque technology (PTC patent). If you are in an open area, far from other structures, you can use a Vibrodriver with a fixed eccentric moment.

Excavator mounted vibrodrivers

The Vibrodrivers mounted on excavators are efficient hydraulic vibration hammers that reduce ground coherence due to vibration, allowing them to easily extract different profiles. Think of sheet pile, H and I frames, tubes, concrete and wooden posts.


Soil improvement with Vibrolance is suitable for a wide range of soil conditions and can be carried out at virtually any depth. The execution is fast and makes it possible to improve large volumes of soil, so that subsequent structural works can be followed quickly. Another advantage is the environmental friendliness, the soil is treated with natural materials, such as in-situ soil, stones or gravel, instead of cement, bentonite or steel, used in other deep foundations.
