Proven compaction technology
VÖGELE offers its screeds in different compaction variants: The suffix V denotes screeds with a vibration compacting unit, TV denotes an additional Tamper, and TP1 and TP2 denote high-compaction screeds with one or two pressure bars. This makes it possible for the specialist to serve the customer's individual requirements. For example, some of the SUPER screeds in the mini and compact class and the VF and VR screeds for North America are only equipped with vibration, while other markets mainly utilize the TV version, i.e. also with a tamper.
Screeds with hydraulic tamper stroke adjustment
The tamper actively compacts the mix under the screed plate, thus ensuring high precompaction of the asphalt layer. A correctly set tamper is of key importance for the compaction result and for the floating behavior of screeds. Adjusting the tamper stroke mechanically is very time-consuming, so it is often not adjusted at all. To avoid this, VÖGELE has developed the hydraulic tamper stroke adjuster. It enables operators to easily set the optimum tamper stroke for paving jobs at the press of a button: With the latest screeds, the tamper stroke is changed to 4 or 8 mm at the push of a button on the control panel.
Pressure bars for up to 98 % compaction
Hydraulically actuated impulse pressure bars are at the heart of high-compaction technology. With this technology, the TP1, TP2 and TP2 Plus, fixed-width screeds achieve maximum compaction. The AB 500 TP2 Plus and AB 600 TP2 Plus constitute the most powerful fixed-width screeds. They are primarily used in the InLine Pave train. With this method of resurfacing, the surface layer immediately follows the binding layer. Here, the high-compaction screed compacts the binder layer with values of up to 98% - but without rolling.
