The three types of Fielding slab and kerb presses are shown working in a Concrete Works.  A single-mould and a three-mould three-column press are shown producing slabs, whilst a three-mould two-column press is shown working in conjunction with a stacking unit producing kerbs.  The film shows the high rate of production that can be obtained by the machines.
