PAVE-TM, the worldwide first patented and automatic system for the measurement of layer thickness is an absolute must in road construction in order to save costs!
After one initial adjustment, the system continuously displays the current thickness of the paving. The system saves you manual re-measuring of the layer thickness and thereby saves time and material. Minimisation of the expensive layer material and exact operation at the tolerance limits reduces your costs to a minimum, thereby increasing your profit. The system amortises itself within the shortest period of time, so that you will turn a profit after only a few projects!
The worldwide novelty performs the highly complex determination of layer thickness by taking into consideration irregularities of the base. In conjunction with four high-accuracy, proven ultrasound sensors, Sonic-Ski PLUS, the thickness of the layer is detected contact-free and is displayed in real-time on the robust, clear GDC-320 colour display. The layer thickness display is already integrated into some of the pavers. The minimisation of error sources due to manual measurement of layer thickness and the accurate control of laid material ensure a uniform, stable layer of the highest quality – a decisive factor for the service life of the road.
We offer OEM customers tailor-made solutions for the integration of layer thickness. Dynapac pavers are already PAVE-TM- and PAVE-IR-ready and can therefore be upgraded at any time with systems for the measurement of layer thickness and for temperature visualisation. Thanks to this upgrade, your paver is ready for road construction of the future in the shortest period of time.
Combined with the solution for rollers, the compaction assistant MCA-3000, you can elevate the quality of your construction to a new level.
If one considers that with a material price of 80.00 EUR per ton, a paving scope of 100km with an average screed width of 6m can result in a saving of 80,000.00 EUR for every saving of 0.1cm layer thickness, the cost savings for a year can easily be calculated.
Thanks to close cooperation with Dynapac during the development phase, all new Dynapac SD paver models of the manufacturer have already been furnished with the „PAVE-TM ready“ setup. The system can therefore be fully integrated at any time. In live deployment this clearly demonstrates the direction of future road construction. The layer thickness values can be implemented in the exterior control station of the Dynapac paver at any time. Upon customer request, the additional GDC-320 can therefore be dispensed with.
Asphalt paving at the tolerance limits, without the risk of paving too thin. Save material at the same time by not paving too thick. With our colour displays on both sides of the screed, you can keep an eye on all values and can intervene and directly apply corrective action in case of deviations. Thanks to the display of layer thickness, you can utilise the saved time for the core process and concentrate on the control stations.
Both the paving area and the total volume can be calculated from the values layer thickness, screed width and distance. By adding material-specific density, the laid tonnage can be calculated directly and shown on the display. The team thereby always maintains an overview of current material consumption. If necessary, the team can intervene in the process at any time. The additional function of material calculation optimises material flow and reduces costs and time. This feature will be available as an upgrade in the near future.
Additional high-precision sensors, our IR spots, can easily be integrated into the modular PAVE-TM system. In this way, the asphalt temperature is determined during the laying process at freely selectable points like, for instance, at the bin or screw, and is transmitted to the user-friendly display. There you always have an overview of all measured values and are thereby in a position to react immediately in order to ensure the highest degree of paving quality.
