Volvo unveils DD128C double-drum compactor

Volvo Development Tools’s new DD128C double-drum compactor, showcased at its ConExpo sales space, is designed to offer each smoothness and productiveness, says the corporate.

The 79-inch-wide drum with chamfer and radii drum edges offers the machine excessive compaction efficiency and reliability, Volvo CE says. With a diameter of 55 inches, the drum has auto-reversing eccentrics to make sure eccentric rotation within the course the drum is rolling. An automated drum wetting system adjusts water move to the pace of the drum to each reduce water use and guarantee uniform drum protection, stopping materials pickup.

With an eight amplitude eccentric system, the DD128C has an amplitude vary of zero.zero03 – zero.03 inches, giving it the flexibility to compact supplies from an ultra-thin raise on as much as a 4-inch raise. Utilizing expertise to detect the amplitude setting, vibration frequency is robotically adjusted to the best vpm out there for the amplitude setting.

Powered by a 148-horsepower Volvo D4 Tier 4 Last engine, the DD128C has elective auto-idling and auto-engine shutdown. The engine and hydraulics are designed to work collectively to offer fast eccentric begin occasions and enhanced drum efficiency.

The machine’s ROPS/FOPS licensed platform, all-around visibility, adjustable seat and 180-degree rotating console present jobsite visibility in addition to unobstructed sightlines to the mat. The swing-up hood offers unobstructed entry to the engine and hydraulic elements; a single key accesses all service doorways.

The DD128C options Compact Help clever compaction system, which provides the operator with real-time suggestions through a 10-inch Volvo Co-Pilot show on compaction standing. Go mapping exhibits the place work has been achieved, and which areas require extra consideration. Temperature mapping ensures operators are compacting the asphalt earlier than it cools. Compact Help with Density Direct reveals the density of the mat in real-time. All of the job information is saved and made out there on the machine or over the air.

The Influence Spacing Meter from Volvo offers a visible reference of pace management to take care of correct influence spacing. The DD128C also can restrict machine pace to take care of correct influence spacing robotically.
