GOMACO is introducing the 3300 multi-application slipform paver at Bauma 2016.
The 3300 features extreme steering capabilities with Smart Leg and Track Positioning, and a Smart Telescoping Mold mounting system for paving from the right side or left side of the paver. In addition, the original GT-3300 has been re-engineered with the company’s G+ control system.
A symmetrical design makes it easy to pave from either side, the company says, and its U-shaped operator’s platform provides a complete view of the entire paving operation from anywhere on the platform. The control console slides from side-to-side to accommodate the direction of the pour. The 3300’s design includes a 20-foot-long conveyor with four-way hydraulic positioning that allows placement of the concrete into the hopper on either side of the 3300. The four-way positioning includes pivoting tilt, pivoting swing, longitudinal slide, and sideshifting. The conveyor hydraulically folds to reduce the overall transport length of the paver.
The 3300’s Extreme Steering is accomplished with hydraulic rotational drives on the tracks and G+ controls. The 3300’s two front legs are mounted on parallelogram-style pivot arms and the rear leg has power slide for positioning. The Smart Leg positioning is done with smart cylinders and the G+ digital control system, along with Smart Track Rotation, to provide the control system with the exact location and position of the tracks and reference to their straight ahead line.
Another feature on the 3300 is the Smart Telescoping Mold mounting system for reference to G+ for repeatable mold offset. It has the GOMACO Hook-and-Go mold mounting system to change from one mold profile to the next. The trimmerhead and mold sideshift and vertically-adjust to clear obstacles, which allows the 3300 to pave right up to obstacles.
