AutoSet Plus – quality assurance at the push of a button

Two in one: useful repositioning and transport function, as well as individual paving programs

With AutoSet Plus, we have enhanced the efficiency, the convenience and thus the quality of key job site processes. AutoSet Plus has two handy automatic functions.

The two functions of AutoSet Plus automate routine tasks, allowing work processes to be carried out more quickly and with greater control. This in turn means that construction projects can be completed faster and more reliably.

Function 1: Repositioning and transport function

VÖGELE pavers feature an automatic repositioning and transport function. AutoSet Plus makes it very much easier to relocate from one part of the job site to another. The paver is automatically set to Transport mode simply by pressing the yellow Execute button.

Function 2: Save paving programs

Paving programs created by the operator can be individually saved with the new automatic function in AutoSet Plus. If required, for example on job sites with comparable conditions or following a change of operator, these programs can be called up really simply and quickly at the touch of a button.

Perfect pavement quality, once and for all

The saved paver and screed values can be activated as presettings if required. The presettings are generally a 90–95% match for the new job site.

Fine adjustments to the remaining 5–10%, resulting from a different mix temperature, for example, are made during paving as usual. This adapts the values to actual job site requirements.

Ready for transport at the push of a button

The repositioning and transport function of “AutoSet Plus” ensures that, once made, no setting is lost either when relocating from part of the job site to another or when moving the paver to its parking position when the work is done. The operator simply presses the yellow Execute button and the paver is automatically set to Transport mode, i.e.: the hopper front, auger, screed and deflectors in front of the crawler tracks (if applicable) are raised. The conveyors are briefly reversed so that mix cannot drop out of the conveyor tunnel when repositioning. Finally, the screed is locked.

The special advantage: all settings are saved. Nothing can now be forgotten between paving and relocating the paver. After relocating, all systems are restored to the saved working position as soon as the Execute button is pressed again. A paver that thinks for itself, so to speak, saves an enormous amount of time, greatly enhancing safety while ensuring a consistent paving quality. It effectively eliminates typical transport damage – to the auger or to the deflectors in front of the crawler tracks, for example.

Automate recurrent processes and optimize paving quality

Setting every single paver and screed value by hand takes time. Previously, there was no way around this chore, which had to be carried out over and over again, even when the paver arrived on a job site with similar or almost identical paving conditions as an earlier site.

Now, automating such recurrent processes is a simple matter. AutoSet Plus allows the operator to save his selected paver and screed settings for any job on the display of the paver operator’s console: for instance, tamper and vibrator speeds, conveyor and auger speeds, auger height and pave speed. The type of mix used, layer thickness and pave width can be saved in the same way – for each paver operator and each layer! In addition to the paver and screed settings, the paver operator also saves a brief description of the current job site situation.

The saved programs can subsequently be retrieved and activated just as quickly and simply, for instance when similar conditions are encountered on another job site – or when the job in progress is taken over by a different paver operator following a break in work. In this way, AutoSet Plus helps to ensure a consistently high paving quality and process safety. And it saves the user a great deal of time, too.

Save a brief description of the current job site situation and paver settings

Step 1: Paver and screed

Paver and screed type are identified automatically. Here, for example: SUPER 1900-3i and AB 500 TP2.

Step 2: Brief description of the current job site situation

The following data is recorded here: type of layer, type of mix, grain size, pave width, layer thickness and tamper stroke.

Step 3: AutoSet Plus automatically displays the current paver and screed settings

When you have entered your brief description of the current job site on the left-hand side of the display, AutoSet Plus will automatically list the current paver and screed settings on the right-hand side.

Step 4: Name of program and date

The program name is proposed automatically by AutoSet Plus after entering the brief description of the current job site situation. Here, for example: „AC16 B-6cm-8m“. The date and time of day are added automatically.

Step 5: Save

Once the brief description of the current job site situation as well as paver and screed settings have been entered, the values can be saved as a program by pressing button F8.

Retrieve program, adopt and optimize settings

Step 1: Adopt a program

When selecting and activating a program, the stored paver and screed settings can be adopted without change if the new paving situation is identical with that saved.

Step 2: Change individual program settings

If called for by requirements on the new job site, the stored values (such as pave speed, tamper speed, pressure of the pressure bars, etc.) can be individually changed as applicable and brought into line with the prevailing conditions.


Maximum paving quality with a much faster and easier setting process. With AutoSet Plus, that is no longer a contradiction in terms! For the user, it means considerably greater process safety, time savings and convenient operation.
