Advantages of Press-In Method

 

Conventionally prefabricated piles have been pounded of vibrated into the ground.  Such methods inevitably generate excessive noise and vibration because of their reliance on percussive or vibratory energy.  Giken has developed the reaction-based press-in machine the "Silent Piler" and established the "Press-In" method based on the principle of non-pollutive pile installation.  In practical terms, the Silent Piler grasps previously installed piles and derives reaction force from the negative skin friction and interlock resistance of these reaction piles.   This reaction force provides press-in force to hydraulically jack subsequent piles into the ground.  Since the piles are "pressed-in", the Silent Piler does not cause any damage to the environment including neighboring structures and local residence through noise and vibration.  The Press-In method allows pile installation in areas where environmental disruption is strictly precluded.
