03.01.2017: From March 7-11, general building, highway and heavy, and road maintenance contractors will experience a first look at the latest equipment and services advancements from the Fayat Group of companies – BOMAG, Breining and Secmair – at the Conexpo-Con/AGG 2017 in Las Vegas.
In the Central Hall at booth #30610 a comprehensive range of products will be exhibited. From compaction and asphalt paving and rehabilitation to chipsealing, micro surfacing and pothole patching, show attendees will be shown a global representation of the broadest line of road construction equipment from a single family of companies.
Among the equipment on display from its light and heavy compaction, asphalt paving and asphalt rehabilitation equipment lines, BOMAG will showcase multiple new product introductions for its customers. From the light equipment line, the new BVP 10/30 single direction vibratory plate on exhibit is the lightest compactor in its class, weighing just over 100 lb (46 kg), for easy transport vehicle loading and unloading. The compactor boasts a narrow 11.8-in (300-mm) plate width ideally suited for compacting confined spaces and right up to corners. Additionally, this light-but-powerful machine generates an impressive 2,250-lb (10-kN) compaction force, making quick work of landscaping, earthworks and asphalt patching projects.
For the road paving and rehabilitation contractor, BOMAG will exhibit the new RS 500 recycler/stabilizer and the cold planer BM 1200/75. The RS 500 features an exclusive offsetting rotor design that shifts the rotor housing assembly outside of the wheel’s edge, allowing the machine to safely stabilize slopes and recycle material right up to the road’s edge. The recycler/stabilizer’s Flexmix technology incorporates three infinitely adjustable gradation bars for superior control over final material sizing. The RS 500’s height-adjustable cabin gives the machine a transport height of only 122 in (3,100 mm), so it can be quickly transported from site to site using a low-boy trailer.
For milling asphalt surfaces to a precise depth, the new cold planer BM 2200/75 is the largest and most powerful in the BOMAG line. Its 760.3-hp (567-kW) diesel engine efficiently powers the machine and delivers high performance milling of half-lane widths reaching 86.6 in (2,200 mm) at depths of up to 13.8 in (350 mm). A wide range of milling drums can be quickly installed into the cutter housing. BOMAG’s unique tooth holder design improves milling productivity while extending service life by up to 30% over other systems. Its quick-change tooth design requires only about 25% of the time for a complete tooth replacement compared to conventional designs. The BM 2200/75 mill’s upper conveyor swivels 60° to the left or right of the center for efficient truck loading to either side of the machine.
Both Breining and Secmair will also have a presence inside the Central Hall booth #30610, so show attendees can learn more about the road maintenance equipment offerings from both companies. Breining, the German brand of the Fayat Road Maintenance Division, specializes in providing contractors with crack sealers and slurry machines. Team members will be on hand to discuss with attendees the line of economical slurry micro surfacing machines, mini production plants for hot-mix asphalt and recycled materials, binder spraying offerings, and crack cleaning/joint spreading equipment.
Based in France, Secmair is a major manufacturer of chipsealing equipment – binder, sprayers and chip spreaders – and the global leader in supplying combination sprayer-spreader units. Pioneers of the Chipsealer design 35 years ago, Secmair will feature information about its simultaneous sprayer-spreader used for a broad range of applications from tack coats before slurry spreading and impregnation layers to surface dressings, patch repairs and curative treatments.
Secmair representatives will also feature its groundbreaking Greenswift Sprayer-Gritter Blow Patcher that economically repairs and provides preventative treatments of potholes. With Greenswift’s arm positioned in front of the truck for excellent visibility, a multifunction joystick gives the driver effective control of material spraying and arm movement. The machine doubles as a Synchronous Chipsealer that performs high quality, highly accurate surfacing and localized preventative treatments.
