BOMAG offers new compaction technology at Conexpo 2014
BOMAG is offering innovative compaction option
Bomag is now offering its tandem rollers for asphalt applications with a novel tangential oscillation system. This technology is being rolled out to the North American market on the new BW 161 ADO-4 tandem roller.
This innovative exciter system now offers increased compaction productivity. According to the firm, co-ordination of the exciter system to drum weight ratios is the key to Bomag’s tangential oscillation system and this technology can be used on bridge structures, in close proximity to buildings, and for finishing applications. With TanGO always directed horizontally, it maintains continuous ground contact and efficient compaction is often evident after a few passes. The interaction of TanGO oscillation from the rear drum and traditional vibration from the front drum provides advantages on difficult to compact asphalt mixes.
In addition to the new Bomag compaction system, the firm is also exhibiting two Cedarapids asphalt pavers and one CMI reclaimer, models that were bought following the firm’s Deal with Terex during last year.
