BOMAG/Fayat will exhibit over 10 new products during CONEXPO-CON/AGG 2020. Among the new road building machines on display will be path and highway pavers; half-lane mills; single drum and tandem vibratory rollers with alternative drive systems; and vibratory plate compactors.
The company will also feature various technology displays to provide attendees with a glimpse into currently available and future solutions.
BOMAG's main focus for its CONEXPO exhibit is to demonstrate how its products advance safety, improve the environment, and harness technology to help customers increase productivity, efficiency and profitability.
Technologies focused on improving safety include integration of an antivibration handle of the BT 60/4 tamper and the ion dust shield on the new BM 1300/35 mill.
BOMAG technological innovations aim to remove the operator from potentially unsafe operating conditions. This is achieved through its concept of a fully autonomous roller. Its remote-controlled BMP 8500 multipurpose compactor takes the operator out of the trench, where safe operation is paramount.
For rollers, BOMAG Obstacle Detection is included to give operators a visual display of obstructions plus an audible warning.
Meeting stringent environmental regulations is just the first step in environmental protection. 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%, help contractors to 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 over 80% of fine particulate pollution generated at the jobsite.
“Think further – think digital” is a BOMAG guiding principle, advancing machine production and service efficiency in the field. On display, 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 transferrable, regardless of roller brand, identifies soft spots in the base, and logs temperatures, Evib values, frequency, amplitude and more.
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 ROPS canopy. 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.
These and other technologies will be featured at BOMAG/Fayat's 17,200 ft.2 (1,698 m2) booth #C30316 in the Central Hall.
