The pile is able to condense free-released soil deposits in the event of pile displacement and vibration during erection.
It lowers the legs or footprints of the building on the edge of the land where the compression layer is high.
It can be used to compact the soil under the foundation and control the amplitude of vibrations and the natural effects of the piling machine.
