This colour film demonstrates the processes of constructing a Norcon spun concrete pipe: machinery is used to press the concrete into the moulds and then move the pipes to a drying area so the moulds can be removed and the pipes allowed to harden.
This colour film opens with interior views of the Norcon works building, where a Norcon 'Spunpress' is operating, followed by shots of a worker filling a machine with the wet concrete mix used to make a Norcon pipe (out of focus). Further shots follow of the machine pressing or spinning concrete to make pipes. Several close-ups of the spinning press. Stage two of the process is to move the concrete filled moulds to the drying area and remove the mould casings to allow the raw pipe to dry.
