BOMAG COMPACTION MANAGEMENT - BCM
BOMAG Compaction Management (BCM) is used to manage and fully document compaction over an entire construction site. A tablet PC suited to construction sites and a GPS receiver form the basis for creating complete compaction maps. This means the operator receives direct feedback about how to optimise the rolling pattern. All data are documented for subsequent analysis. The systems have a modular set-up. Hardware is compatible and an upgrade is possible at any time. The components can be interchanged between machines.
A contractor needing surface covering has to compact accurately and efficiently which also means permanent measuring and monitoring. With BCM 05 the operator can track compaction on the large display in real time, track by track and position by position. The program saves the E-VIB results for the entire construction site. All data can be read out, analysed and archived. This provides user-friendly and concise measurement reports for the project. Furthermore, detailed compaction maps can be generated in conjunction with the BOMAG StarFire GPS receiver. And to within 25 centimetre accuracy! Full area compacting is now more simplified, more efficient and provides more transparency for the operator.
BCM start is the plug-and-play application for roller passes. The driver just has to press the start button and watch as the roller follows its tracks. No preparation is needed. Colour is used to indicate how many passes have already been made. On asphalt, the colour additionally indicates the surface temperature. Colour assignment can be changed at any time. When the required number of passes has been reached, the button for example turns blue. This makes the operator’s job so much easier: He no longer must concentrate on the rolling pattern, just on “making everything blue”. This means more attention is paid to handling the roller to safety within the driver’s surroundings and to obtaining a uniform result.
BCM start works on any roller, regardless of make or technology – in other words, also with static rollers and pneumatic tyred rollers as well. The only thing needed is a power supply.
In addition to displaying the rolling pattern, BCM start also provides documentation. Both passes and temperatures are saved and can be read out as a PDF file from the tablet PC via USB at any time.
Preparation and analysis are carried out conveniently with the familiar BCM 05 office software. On site, a roller is defined as the “server” which centrally collects and distributes the group’s data. Even the paver can be integrated: The roller operators then sees the mat track which the paver has laid and the temperature on their displays, all of which assists in decision making.
This is definitely the future standard and will improve quality and efficiency.
