The arrival of the "Dash 1" generation is heralded by the SUPER 1600-1, SUPER 1603-1, SUPER 1800-1 and SUPER 1803-1 models. This "family concept" prioritizes customer orientation, training, maintenance and ease of servicing, as well as greater cost-efficiency, something guaranteed by the identical concept for paver operation and by the standardization of numerous wearing parts. Models of the "Dash 1" generation can also be supplied with material more quickly and more safely. They spread more mix in less time and with greater precision, achieve a better pavement quality and can advance rapidly on difficult terrain. To top it all, they also help save energy and protect the environment.
The first models of the "Dash 1" family
The centrepiece of the SUPER 1600-1 and SUPER 1603-1 pavers is a 4-cylinder Perkins diesel engine with an output of 96 kW at 2,000 rpm. Speed remains constant even under changing load conditions. Material hopper, conveyors and augers are dimensioned to ensure that 600 tonnes of mix per hour can be paved. A fixed-width screed or an extending screed is available for either paver. The SUPER 1800-1 and SUPER 1803-1 models can pave up to 700 tonnes of material per hour at a maximum pave width of 8 m (SUPER 1803-1) or 9 m (SUPER 1800-1) and layer thicknesses of up to 30 cm.
MT 1000-1 – uninterrupted paving
The new high-performance MT 1000-1 material feeder from VÖGELE can be found wherever a high, uninterrupted laydown rate is required. The level of mix in the paver's material hopper is monitored by a sonic sensor which switches off the material feeder if there is any risk of overfilling. The distance between paver and material feeder is controlled by state-of-the-art sensor technology. Additional safety is assured by an anti-collision system.
Five tools for unrivalled user-friendliness
VÖGELE’s high-tech V-TRONIC innovation focuses primarily on user-friendliness. This is assured by five tools: Engine Management (EM), Engine Load Control (ELC), Traction Management (TM), Generator Management (GM) and the so-called TUSC tool, which allows the control desk on the paver to communicate with the screed operators' remote controls on the outside of the screed. A computer-aided function indicator clearly shows all the vital paver settings and data relevant to paving on a display.
