The ever-growing importance of the "environmental friendliness" megatrend for rollers in the years to come is already becoming apparent today. "Protecting the environment and cutting costs often go hand in hand," says Dr Axel Römer. This is demonstrated by the latest solutions from HAMM in the Technology Center on the subject of sustainability: For example, the power hybrid technology, engine stop function and Eco mode ensure reduced fuel consumption and thus lower exhaust gas and noise emissions. One of the biggest tasks for developers in the coming years is the adaptation of the rollers to the requirements of the next exhaust emission standard (EU Stage V). This makes the rollers even more environmentally friendly. The sustainable compaction range is already complemented by a range of technologies – for example, with oscillation compaction, the number of passes can be reduced. Another example for sustainable construction is the HCQ Navigator. Through process optimisation, it facilitates faster and more homogenous compaction, which ultimately saves energy, time and costs.
Continuing to optimise compaction
In general, the exhibits at bauma 2019 emphasised that HAMM will be remaining true to itself and offering the construction sector innovative solutions regarding the core competence of compaction in the coming decade, too. In line with this, HAMM is premiering a new development, a split oscillation drum, in Munich. This patented solution combines the advantages of oscillation with those of a split drum.
