Bomag featuring 10 new products at CONEXPO
Including path and highway pavers and half-lane mills
Bomag's CONEXPO-CON/AGG 2020 will feature more than 10 new products, including path and highway pavers, half-lane mills, single drum and tandem vibratory rollers with alternative drive systems, and vibratory plate compactors. Technology displays will give attendees a glimpse into future of roadbuilding, while the Services and Solutions Group will feature new Service and Emergency kits that help contractors reduce downtime and save money.
The BT 60/4 tamper as well as the ion dust shield on the new BM 1300/35 mill Bomag is designed to advance operating safety. From the 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.
Meeting stringent environmental regulations is just the first step in environmental protection. Design features such as 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 percent, 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 percent of fine particulate pollution generated at the jobsite.
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-CON/AGG.

The display also showcases critical operating information and "trip" details. All-new electro-hydraulic controls, managed through the display, make it easier than ever for operators to dial CASE CTLs into specific application demands. All new cab controls and joysticks make the new TR340B easy to own and operate.
Industries such as construction, mining, energy, utilities and forestry, face many challenges when it comes to tracking assets and employees. Equipment often has to be transferred between locations, or monitored while it is dormant during off seasons. Lone workers may have to travel long distances or visit multiple sites during the course of their activities. And, all of this is further complicated today with shifting supply chains and economic realities putting further strain on the bottom line.
