World premiers from Bomag
By Helen Wright18 March 2013
Bomag will feature innovations and world premieres in each of its business sectors – light equipment, asphalt and soil compaction – as well as with specialist machines.
Among other things, Bomag will be introducing the optimised black steel faced BPR reversible vibratory plates equipped for the toughest site conditions. It will also launch three new tamper models – BVT 65, BT 65 and BT 60 – which it said were designed to meet the toughest site demands.
Bauma will also see the world premiere of the new series 5 articulated tandem rollers in the 6 to 8 tonne weight class. These compact rollers are designed for small to medium-sized job sites.
Another launch will be the BF 900 C finisher, whose new auger and scraper chain drives are said to allow high volumes of asphalt to be conveyed and spread smoothly and efficiently, with maximum widths of up to 13m.
The Bomag earthworks division has a number of innovations for Bauma, the new generation of single-drum rollers in the 5 to 8 tonne class. In its special machinery section, Bomag is launching the MPH 600 soil stabiliser with its Flex Mix Technology. The company said the “infinitely adjustable” rotor allowed mix results to be changed and adjusted to local conditions. Its new additive spreader series includes the flagship model BS 160000 PROFI with 16m³ capacity and fully automatic metering control.
Bomag has equipped its Telematic Power fleet management system with new, functions for Bauma. It now automatically transfers the data results on fuel consumption and machine capacity use to the user’s in-company software system to reduce time, effort and costs. The company added that the new integrated error code transmission system also provided contractors and rental firms with optimised servicing and maintenance management for all fleets.
