Dynapac 400 kg plate fills gap
By Murray Pollok07 April 2010
Dynapac, part of the Atlas Copco group and exhibiting on the same stand as its parent, will have several new compaction and paver products on show.
The 400 kg class LG400 forward and reverse plate compactor fills a gap in the range, and has a new bottom plate design that helps stop the plate from getting stuck. The PL 600T and PL 1000T are new wheeled compact planers, adding to the PL 500 model launched a year ago. These have 600 mm and 1000 mm cutting widths, respectively.
Dynapac will show an "all new" medium class tracked paver, the tracked SD Series. Designed for use on demanding city roads and highways, the SD115C and SD135C pavers have laydown production rates of up to 750 t/h, and have a width of 2.55 - 3.0 m.
Also new is a range of pneumatic tyred rollers. The CP224, CP224W and CP274 models have compacting widths ranging from 1800 to 2300 mm and maximum operating weights from 21 to 27 t. These rollers have a spacious cab with a rotating and sideways sliding seat and steering assembly.
For asphalt work, the company will launch the Compactasphalt 2500, which will place two layers of asphalt in a single pass. This machine, with a 2.55 m width, is designed for use with Dynapac's DF145CS paver.
Finally, the company will introduce the CompuLogger, its first hand-held compaction control system. This will provide the user with a real time image of compaction over the entire surface being compacted.
