Kuno Kaufmann, Director of Research & Development at Ammann recently stated that users of compaction equipment must embrace the technological advances being made or risk being left behind.
He used the words "data" and "real time" often when describing new technology. These are both provided in the Ammann Compaction Expert or ACE systems.
These systems are often associated with the bigger ARX tandem and ASC single drum rollers but it is also available on Ammann's smaller compaction items.
Vibratory plates compactors and light tandem rollers are often put to work on smaller jobsites. But the efficiencies that can be gained from using compaction technologies can be seen here as much as they can with bigger machines and bigger jobs.
ACEforce is mounted onto plates and light tandem rollers and covers compaction of any soil and aggregate, giving real time updates on achieved compaction. The system also can automatically adjust based on the compaction level. This helps avoid unnecessary passes and possible over-compaction. The measurement mode allows compaction measurement at any point on-site.
ACEecon is just for use on plates and is a relative compaction measuring device, continuously informing the operator about the degree of compaction and when maximal compaction is reached.
The benefits of ACE technology are significant. Among them:
The below brochure will give you all the information needed on Ammann Compaction technologies and the variety of ACE systems. Don't get left behind....
