’s P6820D and P4820D ABG pavers are said to offer higher productivity after being fitted with the Swedish global OEM’s new EPM 3 central control system and new Pave Assist data management technology.
The EPM 3 system consolidates the control buttons, arranged in a bird’s-eye view layout, to guide the operator intuitively through individual working functions. The functions can be easily selected and adjusted using an ergonomically-positioned jog wheel.
For single projects, the Settings Manager stores bespoke settings within the EPM 3, enabling the operator to recall saved parameters when encountering similar projects in the future. This feature is said to simplify machine start up and can be fine-tuned by the operator once paving is underway to maximise productivity and job-to-job paving quality.
Powered by Volvo Co-Pilot, Pave Assist is designed to improve functionality, giving operators real-time insight to the quality and productivity of the paving operation. The highly innovative and Volvo in-house developed solution is said to help operators manage paving operations with a greater ease and autonomy. Tools available with Pave Assist include Material Manager, Thermal Profiling and Weather View.
