SUPER Width. SUPER Powers. SUPER 3000-2.
New SUPER 3000-2 and new SB 300-2 Fixed-Width Screed from VÖGELE celebrate their debut.
Right on time for bauma 2010 in Munich, Germany, VÖGELE are presenting their new flagship . The successor to SUPER 2500 sets new standards in the class of large pavers. And the new member of the “dash 2” paver generation is unparalleled when it comes to performance, user friendliness and efficiency.
Large-scale projects that have to be completed in the shortest possible time require machine technology that delivers maximum performance. VÖGELE developed the precisely for such applications. The new paver of the advanced “dash 2” generation can handle pave widths up to 16m and achieves a maximum laydown rate of 1,600 tonnes/h. These values make the large machine the top performer in the VÖGELE fleet of pavers.
High laydown rates
The is in its element on a wide array of job sites. Its extremely wide range of paving applications covers everything from construction and rehabilitation of motorways, highways and trunk roads, all the way to airport runways. And it's just such applications its performance values were designed for: the paver achieves an impressive pave speed of 24m per minute and places layers up to 50cm thick, regardless of whether bituminous mix, water-bound material or mineral aggregate is being laid.
Designed for large-scale job sites: material feed and material handling
It was of paramount importance to the VÖGELE engineers that the maximum possible laydown rate of 1,600 tonnes/h should be far more than just a theoretical value. That is why all systems for material handling have been amply dimensioned. This begins with the material hopper holding 17.5 tonnes. New dimensions have also been achieved with the conveyor tunnel 162cm wide and 40cm high, ensuring a high material throughput. In combination with conveyors, for which separate drives are provided, and a high-performance auger system, is capable of transferring large quantities of mix in front of the screed in the shortest possible time. Thus, a sufficient head of mix is always guaranteed even when paving at the maximum width of 16m.
Separate drive and electronic control provided for each crawler track
Crucial for a paver is its high tractive effort when it comes to paving across large widths or placing thick layers. In the , separate drive and electronic control is installed for each crawler track, allowing positive tracking when moving straight and accurate turning of radii. This provides for maximum tractive power in every paving situation.
The new large VÖGELE paver is extremely robust even in its standard version. Those components coming into touch with the mix are made of highly resistant steel. And the bottom plates and return pulleys of the conveyors feature a particularly wear-resistant design. Especially for paving jobs that involve large quantities of non-bituminous mix, such as sub-base and base course construction, VÖGELE offer a heavy-duty kit. Part of this kit are reinforced guards for the conveyor tunnel and the chassis, as well as modified auger blades, to withstand high abrasive wear.
Auger height adjustable across the entire pave width
The augers, too, are dimensioned for performance at highest level. Auger blades measuring 480mm in diameter ensure an optimal head of mix in front of the screed, even when large quantities are being laid. An extremely practical feature is the possibility of hydraulic auger height adjustment by up to 20cm while paving, complete with bearings and limiting plates for the auger tunnel. This is carried out across the entire pave width, allowing fast and accurate adaptation of the auger system to varying layer thickness. This also means that the can be moved on the job site without the need for time-consuming and costly modification. comes as standard with the system for hydraulic auger height adjustment.
Easy and convenient: the ErgoPlus® operating system
Just like the other “dash 2” generation pavers from VÖGELE, the is equipped with the popular and user-friendly ErgoPlus® operating system. The core of ErgoPlus® is made up of the operating consoles for the paver and screed operators. The consoles’ clearly structured design allows operators to learn and access all machine functions quickly and intuitively and use them reliably in every situation. Four different operating modes for the paver are available at the touch of a button on the operator's console: “Neutral”, “Job Site Mode”, “Positioning Mode” and “Pave Mode”. A very useful “Memory” feature is installed: when exiting "Pave Mode”, this feature stores last settings and these are retrieved automatically after the paver’s move on the job site.
Everything in view at all times
Yet ErgoPlus® offers more: it also provides the operator a perfect overview of all vital processes, such as mix supply as well as conveyance and spreading of mix in front of the screed. The rear wall of the ’s tractor unit is slanted so that the operator has an unobstructed view of the auger tunnel. As to the operator’s stand, it’s very spacious, integrating plenty of stowage room and giving convenient access to all service points. The two operator’s seats can be swung out beyond the edge of the paver and the operator’s console swivels out together with the seats. This provides for a safe and ergonomically optimized workplace. The comes as standard with a modern hardtop of glass fibre reinforced polymer material with extending sunshades.
VÖGELE is the only manufacturer to offer its own system for grade and slope control: . The advantage is that machine technology of the is perfectly adapted to this grade and slope control system. is operated from the ErgoPlus® consoles.
Powerful engine, economical and low-noise operation
An extremely powerful 6-cylinder DEUTZ engine installed in the delivers ample power in every paving situation. The maximum engine output is 300kW at 1,800 rpm. Needless to say that the engine complies with exhaust emissions standards COM 3a and US-Tier 3. Compared to other large pavers in its class, the VÖGELE newcomer features a very low fuel consumption amounting to no more than 217g/kWh. Despite its impressive power, the paver’s noise levels are low. In view of the high performance values, it operates very quietly. Like all “dash 2” pavers, the new model can be operated in the economical ECO Mode. ECO Mode decreases the engine output to 292kW at 1,500 rpm and further reduces both fuel consumption and noise emissions. The paver’s fuel tank holding 600 litres is large enough to see it through long working days without refuelling.
The generator is flanged directly to the splitter gearbox, which provides for a maintenance-free drive
Apart from the engine, the transfer splitter for hydraulic pumps also plays an important role in pavers of this class. This is why the transfer splitter of the is designed for high performance. The module reliably provides all hydraulic systems with exactly the power needed for the job in hand. The three-phase A.C. generator is directly flanged to the transfer splitter, which provides for a maintenance-free drive. The high generator output also guarantees rapid and efficient supply of electric power to the screed heating system for all pave widths.
Cooling system designed for use in all climate zones
It goes without saying that with a paver in this performance class, the cooling system must also be up to scratch. The SUPER pavers traditionally are equipped with efficient, low-noise cooling systems. comes with a cooler assembly for engine coolant, charge air and hydraulic oil, making it WAT-compliant and allowing it to be used without problems in all climate zones worldwide.
Also on board: the time-saving service concept
Another great advantage of this machine is its well-thought-out service concept. Thanks to this concept, all maintenance services can be wrapped up in next to no time. Downtime, too, is reduced to a minimum. Part of the concept are large panels giving convenient access to all vital service points. Service indicators and measuring ports behind these panels facilitate the diagnosis. The location of the hydraulic pumps, too, was selected with maximum service-friendliness in mind. They are attached to the transfer gearbox, clearly arranged and easily accessible. All bearings exposed to the high temperatures of the mix are automatically supplied with the required amount of grease through a centralized lubrication system.

New for the SUPER 3000-2: SB 300-2 Fixed-Width Screed Handling Pave Width of 16m
VÖGELE have developed a new Fixed-Width Screed to match the wide range of paving applications and the high performance of the . The screed is capable of handling pave widths up to 16m. From a basic width of 3m, the screed builds up with bolt-on extensions of 0.25m, 0.5m, 1m and 1.5m to its maximum width.
Hydraulic extensions also for Fixed-Width Screeds
The benefits of the VÖGELE Extending Screed Technology can also be used for a fixed-width screed thanks to 75cm hydraulic extensions (HE). With the extensions mounted on the left and right sides, the pave width is infinitely variable within a range of 1.5m. The new Fixed-Width Screed and all bolt-on extensions are available in four versions as far as equipment with compacting systems is concerned: with tamper and vibrators (TV), with 1 or 2 pressure bars (TP1 and TP2) and with tamper, vibrators and 2 pressure bars (TVP2).
If variability is a key requirement, can also be combined with the well-proven VÖGELE Extending Screed. This screed handles a maximum pave width of 9.5m. is available in the versions TV, TP1 and TP2, as well as TP2 Plus.
