Ammann rollers to start
production & new option
Following their premiere at the Intermat in Paris, the
new ARX generation of light tandem rollers, from
Ammann, will go into production in autumn 2012.
Ammann’s completely remodelled double
vibratory rollers are specifically designed to compact
asphalt and substrates on smaller and medium-sized
building sites. The new series comprises 13 different
models in weight categories from 1.5 to 4.8 tonnes,
with working widths from 820 to 1380 mm.
New hydraulic concept coupled with the latest
Yanmar diesel engine technology combined to
increase efficiency. It allows the diesel engine to
run at a much lower speed, effectively reducing
consumption, noise levels and emissions.
The new design operator station with vibration
insulation features a simple and clearly laid out
operating panel and the multi-functional drive
lever are convenient for the operator for ergonomic
reasons and more.
New compaction plate option
ACEeco vibratory plates are equipped with a
simple and robust compaction display system that
indicates the compaction progress together with
the maximum compaction level achievable with
the machine via an easily readable LED scale. The
operator is integrated in the process and can intervene accordingly, therefore avoiding over compaction and unnecessary
passes.
The system is available as an optional extra for the fully hydraulic model
ranges with two and three shaft technology - APH 5020, 6020, 6530 and
100-20.
This system enables Ammann to offer its customers an inexpensive
and simple alternative to the tried and tested measurement and control
system ACE, which offers absolute value measurement and vibration
optimization in addition to compaction display.
