Atlas Copco Dynapac upgrades large pavers
Atlas Copco Dynapac says that its upgraded large pavers offer greater productivity
Atlas Copco Dynapac says that new features on the large paver range help improve paving quality and productivity, as well as operator comfort. The Dynapac SD2500 and SD2550 paver models now offer increased productivity and better ergonomics, as well as gains in paving process control. The new control features include the TruckAssist and SetAssist systems, as well as an upgraded operator panel with a new display. Jobsite planning, follow-up and paving process optimization is simplified by coupling Atlas Copco’s Dyn@Link fleet management system with BPO ASPHALT.
The TruckAssist system is itended to help trucks dock correctly and safely with the paver by simplifying communication between the paver and truck driver. The system will be offered on the SD2500/2550 pavers as well as on the SD1800 paver. The SetAssist package is intended to reduce setting and transport times on the jobsite. The paver driver can save the position of the auger and screed before moving from one section to the next. Using the system will then lift the hydraulic front flap, auger and screed, lock the screed for transport and reverse the conveyor slightly. The system will be offered on the SD2500/2550 pavers as well as on the SD1800 paver.
Atlas Copco has made improvements to the screed design as the screed side shields now have integrated wiring and are equipped with power outlets on the side shields, as well as convenient transport handles. Reducing the noise emitted by the screed has led to a significant reduction in the overall noise level of the machine. Atlas Copco has also included data from optional screed width and layer thickness measurement systems in its paver operating system, PaveManager 2.0. Both systems are fully integrated with the screed controllers and the main operator display, giving all paver operators real-time information on the actual paving process. And the firm now links the Dyn@Link fleet management system with BPO ASPHALT from Volz Consulting. The BPO ASPHALT package supports construction companies in optimizing their processes and facilitates planning jobsites in terms of resources and capacity. Paving parameters, including the screed width and layer thickness, can be transferred to Dyn@Link and from there be exported for jobsite documentation or can serve as input for BPO ASPHALT. The system also offers the possibility to import data from Atlas Copco’s Dyn@Lyzer compaction control system and can be linked to a truck fleet management and mixing plant systems, offering a completely integrated solution covering all aspects of the paving process.
