Caterpillar is gaining Axenox’s textured and modular screed technologies. The two companies have entered into an agreement to make Axenox’s Oxclaw textured screed plates and Bullox modular screed plate system available exclusively for Cat asphalt paving customers.

Oxclaw’s three-dimensional textured screed provides lateral compaction confinement to asphalt material, which improves mat density and smoothness as well as density at the joint. Screed cast plates are made with high strength chromium carbide, and are engineered to deliver high wear resistance and longer life in the field.

The Bullox system is designed to reduce screed plate change time, lowering costs and maximizing paver uptime availability. After a one-time installation of the insulated conductor plate, simple screed plate changes are completed using a patented lock-and-go system, eliminating the need to access and remove the nuts and bolts.
