Atlas Copco’s compact Dynapac F1200C asphalt paver excels on a wide range of paving projects — from cycle paths, sidewalks, repair work, parking garages and sports fields — due to its high flexibility. The F1200C offers road construction contractors this flexibility with interchangeable working widths ranging from 4 to 10 feet, high material filling capacity and a high paving capacity of 330 tons per hour. The paver’s V-screed ensures excellent paving results with superior compaction and high quality asphalt mat.
The F1200C includes multiple features that maximize mat quality. Its exclusive, Dynapac feed control system, for instance, eliminates material segregation and ensures continuous, uniform material flow through the paver with its four ultrasonic sensors and one of the industry’s thinnest center chain box augers. The four sensors optimize both the auger and conveyor speed by measuring the material height and detecting gaps in the material.
The conveyor’s 6-inch-wide chain box— the thinnest in the industry — ensures continuous, uniform material flow to the center of the screed. The paver’s center line drive auger includes 13-inch diameter flights to eliminate centerline segregation by providing optimal material flow. Its divided conveyor with its single drive system makes it possible to guide the material to either the left or right side of the screed for asymmetrical paving. Operators can easily pave close to walls with optional reduction shoes.
