The new generation Universal and Highway class paver line-up includes the BF 600 C-3, BF 600 P-3, BF 700 C-3 and BF 800 C-3 models, which are all now available worldwide. The machines benefit from the firm’s Advanced Pave digital assistance system as well as the new electronic side-mounted control panel.

The dashboard has a full graphic display and the digital co-pilot allows the operator to manage work more quickly, easily and productively. The optional multifunction seat offers an additional benefit as the operator has all important functions to hand, allowing a greater focus on the paving process. Construction progress is documented, as the pavers transmit data in real time to the digital site management system via the BOMAG Joblink system.

The third generation of BOMAG Universal and Highway class pavers features the new Advanced Pave digital assistance system. This is intended to support the machine operator during complex tasks. The ergonomic swivel seat provides a good all-round view of the working area as well as the graphic display. Having the option of controls in the armrests allows easier and combined use of the travel joystick, hopper wings and front gate. The dashboard position can be adjusted for a better view in all working situations.

The Advanced Pave system allows the operator to view all machine and process-relevant functions on the display and make adjustments as required. The system offers preprogrammed and individual settings and automates recurring, complex set-up procedures. This saves time when configuring the machine. In addition, it is now much easier to reproduce the same quality with tried-and-tested settings.

These can be recalled from the machine’s memory. The operator selects the required paving layer and the system selects optimum settings for conveyor belt, augers, screed temperature and tamper and vibration frequency. The machine can also be set to transport or working mode quickly as the system brings all functions into position, making the machine ready for operation or loading as required.

The new electronic side-mounted control panel provides relevant information on the paving process and current settings in real time. The intelligent material calculator predicts material requirements for the job and indicates the quantity of material already installed. The levelling controller is integrated. The operator can view the setting of the cross slope and crown profile over a defined distance using the automatic profile system.

The operator can also view the crown profile, auger mount, tamper frequency or vibration on the side-mounted graphic display, while material temperature can be monitored with an optional sensor. Other important features for the operator include the patented Sideview concept with a laterally sliding stand for better visibility.

The machines retain the innovative BOMAG Magmalife screed heating system, with heating rods cast in aluminium. This allows rapid heating and homogeneous heat distribution, as well as extending the service life of the heating elements. The proven Quick Coupling system helps ensure fast set-up times.

The machines offer a range of paving widths, with standard screeds available from 2.55-5m or 3-6m. However, the BF 600 C-3 is designed for paving widths up to a maximum of 8m, the BF 700 C-3 up to 9m and the BF 800 C-3 up to 10m.
