Simply put compaction technology can have a significant impact on your bottom line.
Utilising technology can help operators reduce passes and deliver substantial savings in labour, fuel and machine wear. The technology also can ensure compaction goals have been achieved, eliminating the need for costly re-work at the jobsite.
Three ways in which cutting edge Ammann technology can help you are outlined below. Please Contact Us for further information on anything from our Ammann Compaction range.
Triple Shaft Exciter System on Plate Compactors
The patented Ammann triple-shaft exciter system provides industry-leading climbing ability and compaction output, ultimately delivering outstanding results, even on cohesive soils.
The triple-shaft exciter system eliminates erratic movements, allowing smooth travel even through heavy and cohesive soil. This unique system’s consistent movement enables effortless climbing over obstacles or while compacting backfill materials with high moisture content. This is done without the usual suction effect, which can leave plates at a standstill.
The ease in handling and maneuvering of the plate is particularly helpful when the use of low frequency/high amplitude is required.
GPS Based Compaction
ACEplus combines the ACE (Ammann Compaction Expert) measurement and control system with a navigation system. It provides an efficient analysis and documentation system for continuous compaction control.
The satellite navigation system accurately assigns the measured compaction values to the position coordinates and the time. The graphic display of measurement data relays the on-site compaction work and enables a fast and reliable performance analysis.
ACEplus therefore increases reliability and integrates quality control measures in the work process.
Intelligent Ground Compaction
Precise, transparent and verifiable compaction processes increasingly are required on construction sites. Ammann took the first steps toward providing these processes in 1998 with the creation of Ammann Compaction Expert (ACE), an automated compaction measurement and control system.
ACE has been continually improved since its introduction and remains the industry leader. It is the only system that automatically adjusts amplitude and frequency based on ground characteristics.
The benefits of ACE technology are significant. Among them:
ACE technology is available for both soil and asphalt applications. There are three ACE options available; ACE Pro, ACE Force and ACE econ.
