• The GP360 is a high-production placer/spreader up to 36 feet (10.97 m) wide with a 60 inch (1524 mm) belt and a top-of-the-line two-track GP3 for slipform paving up to 30 feet (9.14 m) wide.

• The GP360 is equipped with one conveyor and two auger drive circuits for placing and vibrator circuits for paving.

• Now your GP360 placer/spreader’s prime mover can be converted into a GP3 two-track slipform paver with all of the latest technology.

• GOMACO’s GP360 is equipped with the exclusive G+® control system to unlock the incredible versatility of both a slipform paver and a placer/spreader, which quickly and efficiently interfaces with stringline or 3D machine guidance systems.

• Powered by a Caterpillar C7.1 Tier 4 diesel engine with 302 horsepower (225 kW) allowing the GP360 to efficiently drive the conveyor belt and distribute concrete across the grade.

• The strike-off features independent vertical adjustment to control the placed concrete depth without raising and lowering the prime mover.

• An optional sonic sensor system can be added to the GP360 to monitor the concrete depth it is placing in front of the paver. Information from the sonic sensors is utilized by the G+ control system on the paver using M2M (Machine to Machine) communication to provide the optimum and consistent head of concrete in front of the paver.

• The GOMACO strike-off features a PTA (Power Transition Adjuster) for crown adjustment with the placed material.

• The belt can be mounted for right-side or left-side haul roads.

• Safety by Design – The conveyor belt features an alarm horn that is automatically activated when the belt is raising or lowering.

 

 

 

 

High-Volume, 60 inch (1524 mm) Conveyor Belt

 

• The conveyor belt is designed to hold up against heavy loads from end-dump trucks.

• The GP360 conveyor features two, nine foot (2.74 m) long, 11 inch (279 mm) wide flexible heavy-duty rubber seals on the front and back of the GP360 conveyor to ensure the concrete is delivered onto the conveyor belt.

• A conveyor discharge speed of up to 491.5 feet per minute (149.81 mpm) provides quick and efficient material placement in front of the GP360.

• Automatic, pressure-compensated belt tensioning while folding, allows the belt to adjust based on the height of the haul road.

• Conveyor wheel retains the belt position when the conveyor is being raised or lowered.

• Heavy-duty, dual-stage belt wiper with pneumatic tensioning.

• Placement accuracy with a controllable material deflector to direct the flow of concrete at the discharge end of the conveyor.

 

 

 

 

New Strike-Off Design for 3D Machine Guidance and M2M (Machine to Machine) Control

 

• The strike-off height is controlled by smart cylinders, independent of the prime mover, to meter the concrete ahead of the paver.

• The vertical control of placement depth can be accomplished from the optional GOMACO Navigator on the concrete paver, giving the GP360 true M2M communications.

• The dual-drive auger system moves material to the center or outer areas and across the strike-off.

• The reversible 20 inch (508 mm) diameter, hydraulically-powered, split auger features 2.5 inch (64 mm) hard-facing on the exterior of the flighting for wear resistance.

• Edge control and maximum material utilization is accomplished with pressure-compensated sideplates.

 

The GOMACO GP360 is designed and built on decades of high-production accuracy in placing and spreading concrete.
