High flexibility thanks to hydraulic bolt-on extensions
The possibility of hydraulically adjusting both screeds by up to 2.5 m with the newly developed extra-wide hydraulic bolt-on extensions is a globally unique feature: no longer confined to the previous range of 75 cm, operators can now vary the pave width on both sides of the screed by as much as 1.25 m using the SmartWheel. This offers a high degree of flexibility and saves time, too – especially on projects involving varying pave widths, since operators no longer need to manually mount or dismount fixed bolt-on extensions for differences of up to 2.5m. “If, for example, bridges need to be crossed in a construction project, the operators can adjust the screed to the new pave width without any mechanical conversion work, using the SmartWheel on the ErgoPlus 3 screed console,” explains Westphal. “This makes the SB 300 and SB 350 Fixed-Width Screeds extremely variable.”
Efficient and convenient: practical functions and installation aids
VÖGELE have also greatly simplified the installation of fixed bolt-on extensions: a newly developed telescoping and positioning system helps operators to mount the individual bolt-on extensions correctly. As a result, they can be adjusted very easily, considerably reducing set-up times.
