    Additional Information

In offset application, mixer trucks deliver the concrete into the receiving hopper of the slipform paver. Transport to the mould is effected via a slewable belt or auger conveyor. Depending on the paver model, the belt conveyor is available in different lengths and in folding design. The auger conveyor is also available in different designs. And whether belt or auger conveyor: all settings, such as conveying speed, angle of incline or position can be made at the mere push of a button. A separate cross-feeding auger offers numerous advantages. The mixer truck can drive right in front of the slipform paver, thus eliminating the need to close off additional traffic lanes. The cross-feeding auger is the ideal solution also whenever larger volumes of concrete are required as a material buffer, for example, when paving in narrow bends where it is not possible for the mixer truck to continue the uninterrupted delivery of concrete to the slipform paver.
