BOMAG will return to the Exec­u­tive Hire Show in a new posi­tion in the Ricoh Arena’s main hall on stand I42.

BOMAG’s 2019 stand will be themed Safe­ty, Secu­ri­ty, Ser­vice and Solu­tions.

Safe­ty

Hand & Arm Vibra­tion (HAV) is wide­ly recog­nised as a seri­ous threat to health.

  • HAV is pre­ventable, but once the dam­age is done it is per­ma­nent.
  • HAV is seri­ous and dis­abling, and near­ly 2 mil­lion peo­ple are at risk.
  • Dam­age from HAV can include the inabil­i­ty to do fine work and cold can trig­ger painful fin­ger blanch­ing attacks.

The con­struc­tion indus­try is full of risk with many hand oper­at­ed machines, includ­ing pneu­mat­ic and hydraulic break­ers and com­paction equip­ment, pro­duc­ing high HAV. What can be bet­ter than zero HAV? BOMAG will exhib­it two ver­sa­tile bits of kit which are remote­ly oper­at­ed that can tack­le most small-scale com­paction jobs with ease. The BPH 80/65S reversible hydraulic plate and the BMP 8500 mul­ti-pur­pose com­pactor are remote­ly con­trolled and so the oper­a­tor is not exposed to any HAV. Both machines have safe­ty sys­tems built into the remote-con­trol oper­a­tor which safe­guards the oper­a­tor. These are pow­er­ful ver­sa­tile machines. The BPH 80/65S pro­duces 80kN of force at a fre­quen­cy of 55 Hz whilst the BMP 8500 pro­duces up to 72 kN of force at 42 Hz. The third machine on dis­play will be the low HAV (2.5m/sec2) BVP 10/30 sin­gle direc­tion vibrat­ing plate.

Secu­ri­ty

BOMAG announced in July that it had stepped-up its secu­ri­ty mark­ing on its ever-pop­u­lar range of light and heavy asphalt tan­dem and sin­gle drum soil rollers in response to con­sis­tent­ly high rates of theft. Over 100 BOMAG rollers were stolen in the UK in 2017. The Offi­cial CESAR Scheme, owned by the CEA, acts as a pow­er­ful theft deter­rent and an invalu­able aid in recov­ery. CESAR can be fit­ted as an option to oth­er light equip­ment.

Ser­vice App

BOMAG’s Ser­vice App is a prac­ti­cal mobile solu­tion for use on a smart­phone or tablet com­put­er. It’s avail­able free of charge from Google Play and the App Store for Android and Apple devices.

The BOMAG Ser­vice App pro­vides users with help on the go, putting valu­able infor­ma­tion at their fin­ger­tips, 24/7, sav­ing time and mon­ey. The con­ve­nient App enables users to search for a spare part, mon­i­tor their machine fleet, find a used machine or the local BOMAG ser­vice part­ner and get sup­port for the main­te­nance of their machine. By scan­ning the QR code on the ser­i­al num­ber plate, or by enter­ing the ser­i­al num­ber, users can quick­ly access spare parts lists, tech­ni­cal data, oper­at­ing and main­te­nance instruc­tions and videos. The App also pro­vides users with ‘trans­par­ent main­te­nance doc­u­men­ta­tion’. In the elec­tron­ic ser­vice book­let users can doc­u­ment all the ser­vice work per­formed on a machine which always pro­vides a com­plete record. The elec­tron­ic ser­vice book­let can also be kept up-to date via the BOMAG ser­vice por­tal https://servicelog. bomag.com/ 

Solu­tions

BOMAG is a leader in Con­tin­u­ous Com­paction Con­trol (CCC) the 3-step process of Dis­play, Con­trol and Doc­u­men­ta­tion which saves time and mon­ey and improves qual­i­ty assur­ance. At EHS BOMAG will high­light the ben­e­fits of their unique real-time com­paction dis­play sys­tem ECONOMIZER, which is a stan­dard fea­ture of reversible com­paction plates from the BPR45/55D upwards, and an option on the BMP 8500 trench com­pactor and all light tan­dem rollers. The ECONOMIZER dis­play clear­ly shows com­paction progress and under and over com­paction sav­ing time and mon­ey, reduc­ing emis­sions and risk, pro­vid­ing con­sis­tent com­paction qual­i­ty over large areas and putting an end to time con­sum­ing and expen­sive re-work­ing.
