GOMACO Will Bring a World of Firsts to Bauma 2010


Munich, Germany - GOMACO will bring the world a series of "firsts" at Bauma 2010.
The new IDBI attachment, on a Commander III four-track, will be introduced to the international market. A display will be devoted to tunnel paving with the Commander III. The C-450 cylinder finisher for flat and slope paving will make its first appearance at an international exhibition. Concrete barrier wall, both right-side and left-side pour, will be displayed on a three-track and a four-track Commander III. And rounding out the display is a GT-3600 set up to slipform above-ground water channel. All of this and more will be on display in GOMACO's stand in the Open Air Area F12, Stand #1210/3.
The IDBI attachment is an independent unit providing dowel bar insertion behind a GOMACO paver for transverse joints. The attachment is powered by its own C4.4, Tier 3, diesel Caterpillar engine; no power or hydraulics is needed from the paver's engine. A CAN cable connects the IDBI's controls to the controller on the paver and allows the two systems to communicate. The design features a new IDBI tray that is stronger, more compact and makes width changes easier. New adjustable-height bar extractors allow contractors to quickly and easily change the setup for different bar sizes for insertion requirements.
The IDBI's new G+ control system features the same graphical display as the award-winning G22 controller, with easy to learn and easy to understand controls. The information is presented in full color, commands are presented in full text, and it is able to operate in two or more languages. The IDBI attachment is available for all new four-track GOMACO slipform pavers.
The C-450 for both flat and slope finishing will also be on display. It is capable of finishing widths from 2.7 meters (9 ft.) up to 31.7 meters (104 ft.) and slopes up to 1:1 (45 degrees). GOMACO will continue to showcase its canal versatility at Bauma 2010 with a GT-3600 set up to slipform an above-ground water channel. The company's pavers are capable of slipforming the smaller channels, as well as slopes up to 22 meters (71 ft.) wide.
three-track and a four-track Commander III will be in the stand, both equipped with barrier molds. The three-track model will be left-side pour, while the four-track will be right-side pour. The four-track features a folding conveyor that is built with both horizontal and vertical hydraulic movement, allowing it to be placed on either side of the machine to receive the concrete. Mold mounts are located on both sides of the Commander III and a clamp system on the mold allows easy attachment to the mount. The mold mounting beam has 300 millimeters (11.8 in.) of offset built into it to correctly position the mold for the pour.
Rounding out the GOMACO stand will be a tunnel display featuring the unique profiles a Commander III is capable of slipforming inside the tight constraints of a tunnel. The Commander III is a job-proven machine for tunnel profiles, which include track bed, emergency walkway, slotted drain, "U" channel, and other profiles to accommodate assorted pipes and electrical cable.
GOMACO Corporation ( is the worldwide leader in concrete construction equipment with headquarters in Ida Grove, Iowa.
