Gomaco Latest Technology at the
World of Concrete 2015
The World of Concrete has always been
an important show for the Gomaco
Corporation and this year was no exception.
Amongst the machines on display was the company’s next
generation Commander III multi-application slipform pav-
er. The Next Generation Commander III’s new design is
all about vision, safety, and performance. It is driven by
the new GOMACO G+ control system and the new Tier 4
The operator’s platform has been redesigned with a
pivoting operator’s control console. The pivoting opera-
tor’s console allows the operator to have hands-on control
and ultimate visibility no matter what application is being
slipformed or what the direction of travel.
The platform is now isolated to eliminate vibration.
It’s also quieter to work on the platform or around the
The frame has been rebuilt to accommodate larger
space requirements for Tier 4 engines and their cooling
For the first time, the Commander III will
be available with an optional on-board camera
to monitor designated areas of the slipforming
process. The camera can be positioned any-
where around the paver and feeds live to the
G+ display on the console.
With the new engine has been optimised to
improve fuel efficiency. This, together with a
larger fuel tank allows an uninterrupted day of
paving on the project.
The newmodel is packed with technology to
help improve machine operation, per-
formance and remote data exchange.
New Sidewalk Paver
The Gomaco GT-3200 sidewalk pav-
er was set up as a high-production
curb and gutter machine utilizing 3D
The design, combined with the G+
control system and G+ Connect, allows
the curb and gutter machine to eas-
ily slipform tight radii. The All-Track
Steering (ATS) allows all three of the tracks to be steered
and turned for smooth operation through each individual
Other design considerations on the GT-3600 also make
it the ideal curb and gutter machine. The operator station
gives better visibility and a tethered remote allows the op-
erator to move around the station.
The model on display was equipped with a trimmer-
head for fine grade trimming and a trailing sidewalk mold.
The zero-clearance sidewalk paver has a 20 inch (508 mm)
wide, 14 foot (4.3 m) long, hydraulic pivoting and folding
conveyor. The conveyor’s extra-long reach allows ready-
mix trucks to discharge from the street instead of having to
drive over existing curb.
