Fayat to showcase innovation prize winner
By Chris Sleight21 February 2012
The focus of Fayat's new roadbuilding machines - marketed under the Bomag brand - will be the new possibilities for communication using the company's BCM system. This is useful in situations where several compactors are operating at once on a project. The system can collate all the compaction information and produce a complete picture of the project - highlighting areas where work is needed, or where it has been completed.
The company's road maintenance machines meanwhile are sold under the Breining and Secmair brands, and the latest machine is the Swift from Secmair, which has won one of Intermat's innovation prizes. The Swift is an all-in-one machine for pothole repair, which has all the tools and equipment on baord to remove damaged asphalt, clean the hole, prime it with emulsion, fill it wih asphal, compact it, seal and topcoat it, and then give it a final roll.
The machine has a range of innvoative features, such as a hoist for handling heavier pieces of equipment and a thermal monitoroing system for the aspahlt.
New from Fayat's asphalt plant business, Ewrmont, meanwhile is the new generation of 10 to 15 tonne per hour containerised emulsion plants. Also new is the Compacy continuous hot mix asphalt plant, which is available in several versions, including one with an energy savinf Retroflux counterflow drum.
