Working with variable widths between 3.2m and 8.5m is another advantage of the InLine Pave method. Rehabilitating single lanes is just as straightforward as the construction or rehabilitation of roads with several lanes.
Tenders must be invited
Inviting tenders for this method was another important topic in addition to the practical reports. Construction industry representatives see enormous growth potential in the public sector when it comes to inviting tenders for such compact pavements. The official representatives in turn encouraged their colleagues to invite tenders for compact asphalt pavements for new roads and extension projects, as well as for extensive rehabilitation of surface courses. Even if the method is not explicitly specified, corresponding alternative bids are always welcome.
About VÖGELE's InLine Pave method
An InLine Pave train comprises a material feeder and two pavers. The feeder has a long conveyor via which it alternately supplies the two pavers with material. The most important part of the train is the SUPER 2100-2 IP paver with AB 600 High Compaction Screed in TP Plus version.
A standard paver with minor modifications, it is equipped with a special transfer module to transport the asphalt to the second paver in the InLine Pave train. The surface course is placed on the highly compacted binder course by a paver of type SUPER 1800-2 or SUPER 1600-2 with standard AB 500 TV Extending Screed following directly behind it.
Since all three machines undergo only marginal modification for the InLine Pave process, they can also be used for conventional projects.
