The Super 3000-3(i) paver is part of the Premium Line from Vögele, suitable for both medium-sized construction projects and rehabilitation of motorways as well as for paving airport runways, large squares and traffic areas. The machine was unveiled to the global market last year at the bauma exhibition in Munich.
The Vögele Premium Line products are all equipped with the ErgoPlus 3 operating concept – which offers a number of advanced and practical features such as displays, automatic functions and enhanced convenience. Like all ‘Dash 3’ machines in the Premium Line, the Super 3000-3(i) is additionally equipped with the Vögele EcoPlus low-emissions package and is optionally available with the PaveDock Assistant communication system.
The Super 3000-3(i) is capable of laying down up to 1,800 t of mix per hour. With an output of 354 kW, the diesel engine supplies the paver with sufficient power to tackle large-volume paving jobs with ease. Paving quality is another key factor - it depends, among other things, on the correct height setting of the auger. This should always be adapted to the layer thickness.
Vögele has revolutionised the material transport on the Super 3000-3(i), to guarantee an optimum head of mix in front of the screed when working with different layer thicknesses. The height of the rear section of the chassis including the conveyors and augers can be infinitely varied at the push of a button, which enables material to be transferred to the auger from above. This supports an optimum material throughput and distribution of the mix, even when paving thick base courses.
The Super 3000-3(i) can be combined with the AB 600 extending screed and also the SB 300 and SB 350 fixed-width screeds. These fixed-width screeds ensure maximum surface accuracy, even when working with large pave widths – while paving without longitudinal joints. The SB 350 is capable of paving asphalt surface courses up to 5 cm thick, across a total width of 18 m. It is also able to lay down anti-freeze layers or water-bound bases with layer thicknesses up to 50 cm. The use of telescoping and positioning system for screed bolt-on extensions leads to shorter set-up times when working with varying pave widths.
What’s more, the hydraulic bolt-on extensions are versatile when paving. At the push of a button, the pave width can be hydraulically varied by 1.25 m on each side of the screed – adding up to a total adjustment range of 2.5 m. Paver operators are also able to set the optimum tamper stroke of 4 or 8 mm on the paver operator’s ErgoPlus 3 console or the screed console, adapting it to the current paving job.
With all these functions, the Super 3000-3(i) covers an extremely wide range of applications. The innovative material transport, hydraulic tamper-stroke adjustment and the wider hydraulic bolt-on extensions for the fixed-width screeds allow users to easily adapt the paver to the current jobsite – without mechanical conversion work. The set values can be saved and retrieved at any time with the automatic AutoSet Plus function. This enhances the efficiency, ease and quality of work processes.
