Bomag updates screed and design of CR 1030 series pavers

Bomag CR 1030 Series track paver

For the 2025 paving season, Bomag will launch the new highway-class Bomag CR 1030 Series track paver. 

The new 3-metre highway-class machine features multiple design updates to improve operating efficiency and increase mat quality by reducing segregation occurrence. 

As well, Bomag will introduce the Versa 20 front mount screed, a new addition to the screed roster. 

The new human-machine interface (HMI) includes a new screed control system with integrated MOBA automation features.

For the console, similar functions such as the hopper, screed and feed controls are grouped together to allow the operator to quickly identify and adjust settings as required. 

The 18-cm multifunction colour screen display at each console boasts a new experience for the operator with multiple configurable screens. 

By providing both a touchscreen display and a remote dial control option, operators can easily navigate and adjust settings even in situations where using a touchscreen may be impractical, such as when wearing gloves. This ensures that operators can maintain control and access critical functions and gauges without hindrance, which helps to ensure smoother operation and improved efficiency on the job. 

Incorporating fault code visibility on the touchscreen monitor is a smart feature for enhancing machine serviceability and troubleshooting efficiency. By alerting operators to paver issues directly on the monitor, they can address any problems that arise during operation. This real-time feedback enables quick identification and resolution of machine issues right at the jobsite. 

New auger/conveyor

The CR 1030 T Series is the independent auger/conveyor system with a proven outboard auger drive system. The new design allows the conveyors and auger to run independently of each other, with a two or four (optional) sensor control system.

The raisable or fixed outboard driven auger system, which is a proven product from the CR Remix paver design, improves visibility into the conveyor discharge area, as well as eliminate segregation in that area, resulting in an improved mat quality.

The Bomag CR 1030  rubber track paver is powered by the 225 hp Cummins QSB 6.7 engine meeting the latest emission standards. Operator visibility into the 12.7-tonne hopper is enhanced by the paver’s sloped hood design. It retains many of the legacy CR series features, including optional Frame Raise with fixed augers to improve mat quality and the Smartrac system that automatically maintains track tension to significantly increase track life. 

Bomag’s exclusive SideView innovation allows each seat and console to swivel outward at four different angles for unobstructed views to the paver sides and screed end gate. 

Bomag Versa 20 screed 

The new Versa 20 front-mount electric screed, which will be offered on the new series of pavers, offers infinitely variable paving widths ranging from 3 metres to 5.8 metres at paving thicknesses reaching 305 mm. Bolt-on screed left- and right-hand extensions are available in 305-mm, 457-mm and 610-mm widths, plus an optional 305-mm, 457-mm, 610-mm berm screed plates. This gives contractors more flexibility to adjust paving widths up to a 7-metre maximum.

Quick connections for these bolt-on extensions provide both heat and vibration for increased mat quality. The screed comes standard with a 3-metre catwalk and foldable walkway extensions for the operator. 

The 28-cm deep hydraulic extensions, with manually adjustable angle of attack, allow for better density and mat quality than others in the front mount class. The hydraulically powered crown for the Versa 20 can be adjusted from 76-mm positive to 25-mm negative.

The newly designed screed controls and remotes allow for better operator experience as well as accommodating special features like integrated MOBA automation. 

Borrowing from the European Bomag screed family design, robust telescopic tubes increase screed rigidity to minimize deflection at extended paving widths.

Incorporating the proven tipping frame and match height features from the Stretch 20 Screed, the new Versa 20 is designed to better maintain setting adjustments between the main frame and extensions for a more consistent mat texture across the entire paving width.
