Bomag to highlight innovations in safety and tech at ConExpo

Bomag

At ConExpo, Bomag will exhibit its latest innovations to advance safety, improve the environment and harness technology for its compaction, milling and asphalt paving equipment. 

The Bomag/Fayat Conexpo booth will span  1,698 square metres,  as well as feature more than 10 new products, including path and highway pavers, half-lane mills, single drum rollers as well as  tandem vibratory rollers equipped with alternative drive systems and vibratory plate compactors. 

Technology displays will give attendees a glimpse into future possibilities and allow all to experience future technology now available from Bomag. 

Safety 

Bomag’s design teams focus on making machine operation — and the process — safer for its customers. From the anti-vibration handle of the BT 60/4 tamper to the ion dust shield on the new BM 1300/35 mill, Bomag equipment is designed to advance operating safety. 

From the industry-leading concept of a fully autonomous roller to the remote-controlled BMP 8500 multipurpose compactor that takes the operator out of the trench, safe operation is paramount. 

For rollers, Bomag Obstacle Detection gives operators a visual display of the obstruction plus audible warning.  

Environment 

Design features on display like Bomag EcoStop, which automatically shuts off the engine after a preset idle time, and EcoMode to reduce noise and save fuel consumption by up to 30 per cent, helping contractors save money and protect the environment. 

Alternative fuel and drive models will be an integral part of the Bomag/Fayat display. Three different solutions for the BW 120 tandem vibratory roller will be shown: traditional diesel, electric and liquid petroleum gas (LPG). The new BM 1300/35 milling machine features Bomag’s Ion Dust Shield that reduces more than 80 per cent of fine particulate pollution generated at the jobsite. 

Digitalization 

“Think further – think digital” is a Bomag guiding principle, advancing machine production and service efficiency in the field. 

On display at ConExpo, the new and free BOMAP app demonstrates how it documents roller passes and captures and records compaction values from a standard smartphone or tablet. BOMAP is easily transferable, regardless of roller brand, identifies soft spots in the base and logs temperatures, Evib values, frequency and amplitude.

The redesigned BW 206 AD-5 AM with Asphalt Manager 2 on display meets market needs in the Americas for advanced compaction technology combined with a ROPS canopy.

Asphalt Manager from Bomag

Asphalt Manager 2 automatically adjusts compaction forces from vertical to horizontal as mat stiffness increases to prevent over compaction plus its standard infrared camera gives operators mat temperature data. All Bomag tandem rollers with Asphalt Manager 2 will be available in the Americas with canopies starting at ConExpo. 

As well, the Services and Solutions Group will feature new service and emergency kits that help contractors reduce downtime and save money.
