While paving with asphalt it often occurs that the working-width has to be changed for a short period in order to pave bays, gateways etc. which exceed the current screed width by less than a meter. This problem is normally solved by shovelling the paving mixture on to the space protruding the screed and then scraping the surface by hand until required thickness is achieved
In order to optimize this tedious procedure and at the same time gaining a better paving quality we have constructed the new side sliding device quick pave, which enables to carry out the above mentioned procedures more efficiently. The new and patented quick pave has been designed to be mounted on to any paver or screed type independent of brand and manufacturer.
The screed does not require major modifications and can always be put back into the original conditon.
The following technical variants and procedures are possible:
Side-sliding adjuster quick pave with manual hydraulic pump/cylinder complete adjustable side plate for easy mounting to the screed body side bar optional in exchange with original side bar manual hydraulic quick-adjuster as well as fine adjustment with two mounted splindles after mounting the device, using simple screw joints, you can start work immediately.
Side-sliding adjuster quick pave with electrically driven hydraulic cylinder complete, adjustable side plate for easy mounting to the screed body side bar optional in exchange with original side bar manual hydraulic quick-adjuster as well as fine adjustment with two mounted spindles the hydraulic cylinder of the side plate adjustment can be connected to the basic machinery with an hydraulic kit on the site. After the side plate is screwed on to the screed you can start work immediately.
The device can be additionally equipped with the following options:
Foldable, lockable and in height adjustable scraping device to scrape the paving material off at the required thickness
Plugable, quick-changeable, heated profile tools which are situated on the inner side of the scraper to form a precise curb-edge at the road side. The customer can order form of tool according to requirement
The runner of the quick pave is also equipped with a quick-changing-system, the finish of which can also be chosen by the customer according to requirement
The photo shows the scraping device in action and the quality of layed paving. With the assistance of the technic already at hand – screed extension and retraction – the scraping device can convey the paving material precisely right up to the high board. The changed compaction thickness which originates from working like this can be suited to paving with the integrated height adjuster of the system without any problems.
Photo two shows the device mounted on to a paver before work is commenced, giving a good view of the swung out and locked scraping device. The side plate is pulled up to ensure the material supply for the scraping fuction.
Here the scraper is swung out to make a paving extension of approx. 70 cm. With the existing repose angle the paving material runs under the side plate through to the scraper. Use of the levelling system is not influenced by this procedure. The sensor automatic is also not influenced in carrying out its function of grade sensoring from the grade reference high board.
