Bomag to show milling, paving, and compaction equipment at World of Asphalt 2022
Bomag's World of Asphalt 2022 display will showcase multiple pieces of milling, paving, and compaction equipment from its product portfolio. Included in the show will be the new half-lane Bomag BM 1200/35-2 and compact BM 600/15-2 mills, highway class BW 206 AD-5 AM tandem roller with Asphalt Manager technology, the BF 200 C-2 compact paver, and CR 1030 T highway paver. In addition, Bomag technicians will be on hand to show the latest updates to the BOMAP and BOMAP Connect apps.
Once again, Bomag is supporting Construction Angels in various ways, and a portion of the exhibit will be dedicated to the sale of asphalt industry-related t-shirts with all proceeds going to the charity. The Bureau of Labor Statistics reports nearly 5,000 fatal work injuries were reported in 2020, and construction and extraction occupations accounted for more than 20 percent of those work fatalities. Construction Angels provides immediate financial assistance, grief counselling, and much more to the children and spouses left behind when a construction worker has a fatality on the job.
Bomag's latest milling technologies
With its 350-hp (260-kW) MTU engine meeting Tier 4 Final/Stage V emissions standards, the new Bomag BM 1200/35-2 mill offers ideal power and productivity. The new mill has a 164-ft/min (50 m/min) maximum milling speed and gets around the site faster with its 410-ft/min (125-m/min) transport speed. Three milling drum speeds – 85, 95 and 107 rpm – help tune cutting speeds to job site conditions. With Bomag's Easy Level system, a large 7-in (178-mm) screen displays all operating parameters while milling to offer intuitive levelling and control of milling functions.
The new BM 1200/35-2 offers a 47.2-in (1200-mm) cutting width and a maximum 13-in (330-mm) cutting depth. Material is efficiently moved from the cutter housing to haul trucks via 25.6-in (650-mm) wide inside and 23.6-in (600-mm) wide outside conveyors at capacities reaching 235 ft3/hr (180 m3/hr). Offering a maximum discharge height of 224.4 in (5700 mm), the conveyor swivels 45 degrees to the left and right. The optional Bomag ION DUST SHIELD supplements dust extraction by capturing up to 88 percent of fine dust particles less than 10 µm.
The BM 600/15-2 compact mill comes in 3- and 4-wheel designs and features machine levelling sensors integrated into the mill's side plate cylinders. A 7-in (178-mm) full graphic colour display offers intuitive operation and levelling control for efficient mill setup. With a range of quick-exchange drum designs available in widths from 3.15 to 23.6 in (80 to 600 mm), the BM 600/15-2 offers a maximum 23.6-in (600-mm) cutting width. Its hydraulic system boosts transport speeds to 3.7 mph (6 km/hr) for 3-wheel and 6.2 mph (10 km/hr) 4-wheel configurations, while its 15.7-in (400-mm) wide conveyor design features 30-degree left/right swivelling for ideal truck loading at up to 111.2 yd3/hr (85 m3/hr) discharge rates. A triple-setting water pump system allows the operator to adjust the water flow as needed.
Bomag's technology and roller ranges at World of Asphalt
Available as a free download for Android devices, the Bomag BOMAP app offers a way to see and document roller passes and compaction details at the job site. A colour scale marks the compaction progress to reduce the number of passes. BOMAP requires no expensive hardware to install, and operators can transfer it between Bomag or other roller brands. BOMAP helps companies to make fewer passes, reducing work time, fuel, machine wear, and CO2 emissions.
BOMAP's cloud-based subscription service integrates with existing Bomag ECONOMIZER, TERRAMETER, and ASPHALT MANAGER technologies for complete compaction documentation. For Bomag rollers equipped with JOBLINK, BOMAP logs, and transfers Evib values, temperature, frequency, amplitude, and other compaction values. Integrating BOMAP into Bomag AsphaltPro enables a digital construction site, while BOMAP Connect offers planning of different projects in BOMAP, including simple site and resource planning.
With its 84.1-in (2135-mm) compaction width, the BW206 AD-5 AM tandem vibratory roller features a 55.1-in (1440-mm) drum diameter that puts more impact surface area in contact with the asphalt to prevent mat pushing and shoving. Integrating the Asphalt Manager (AM) compaction system, the BW 206 AD-5 AM can complete breakdown, intermediate, and finish rolling on high-production applications. Requiring the operator to input only layer thickness, the system continually measures compaction progress and automatically adjusts front drum vibration between true vertical and horizontal as mat stiffness increases. Setting vibration mode to oscillation makes the roller well suited to compact joints, bridges and around structures sensitive to vibration forces.
Bomag's asphalt paver range at World of Asphalt
Bomag offers a full range of pavers to tackle projects from cart paths and parking lots to rural roads and the mainline. The BF 200 C-2 track paver features a narrow 44-in (1118-mm) track width that fits in the cut of a 4-ft (1.2-m) mill to boost paving efficiency for mill-and-fill applications. It offers base paving widths ranging from 3.6 to 6.6 ft (1.1 to 2 m), while extensions with quick coupling technology and a locking wedge-and-socket design increase paving widths to 11.2 ft (3.4 m). Bomag MAGMALIFE technology casts heating elements into a single aluminum block for superior thermal conductivity, resulting in fast screed heat-up time to paving temperatures with uniform heat distribution. A large 5-ton (4.5-tonne) hopper capacity provides extended paving intervals between loads.
Bomag's highway-class 10-ft (3.0-m) paver, the Bomag CR 1030 T paver on display features Smartrac, which automatically maintains proper track tension at all times to increase track life and decrease downtime. Dual swing-out operator stations feature Bomag's exclusive SIDEVIEW innovation that offers unobstructed views to the sides of the paver and screed end gate. Equipped with the Stretch 20 hydraulically extendible screed, the CR 1030 T offers variable paving widths from 10 to 20 ft (3.0 to 6.1 m) and a maximum 30-ft (9.1-m) paving width with extensions. Its Screed Assist System eliminates screed settling to improve mat smoothness.
