The F1000W wheeled and F1000T tracked pavers allow contractors to equip the units with either a center auger drive system or outboard auger drive system for optimal performance in a variety of applications. The pavers also can be equipped with Atlas Copco’s new tunnel extension system for optimal productivity and minimal maintenance.
Atlas Copco’s center drive auger system features a 6-inch-wide chain box the thinnest in the industry and 17-inch diameter flights to ensure continuous, uniform material flow and minimize centerline segregation. Center drive is suitable in all paving applications and works best for areas where the width of the pavement is frequently changing such as highways, city streets and large parking lots as well as high speed paving applications.
The outboard auger drive system is ideal for paving wide roads and for normal speed paving applications. The drive box for the left and right auger are positioned at the outer edges which helps minimize center line segregation and ensure high mat quality and texture.
Dynapac’s exclusive auger-conveyor feed-control system ensures a continuous material flow. The system uses four ultrasonic sensors that measure paving material and automatically adjust conveyors and augers to optimize material flow.
The 10-foot pavers can also include a hydraulic tunnel extension system along with the center drive auger system. The 22-inch wide hydraulic tunnel extension will automatically retract when screed extensions begin to retract to prevent collision. The hydraulic tunnel reduces excess head of material in the tunnel area and prevents asphalt from entering into track components, maximizing productivity and minimizing maintenance.
The pavers feature two ergonomic operating stations on each side to reduce operator fatigue. The stations swing out to provide maximum visibility to the front and rear. Controls are grouped based by function for simple operation and the paver features a display for vital paver parameters.
The robust rear extension screed extends to 28 feet wide for use on large paving projects, including highways, interstates and airports.
