G+® Controls – Designed For Concrete Paving

GP3 G+ ControlsIt is now the technology that pulls everything together… G+ is the exclusive system for all of the resources.

Once you experience G+ controls, you won’t be satisfied with anything else. It’s a control system that is both easy to learn and easy to operate. G+ expresses itself in easy to understand international icons and full script explanations. It operates in all the major languages of the world and in the imperial or metric units. It has a lightning-fast processing speed and features two-way communications between the accessories and G+. Its instant digital feedback combined with the tight closed-loop electronic and hydraulic control creates a G+ experience that is smooth, efficient, and accurate. There is nothing on the market that can compare, because G+ is a proprietary system that was designed by our in-house control experts incorporating what we have learned from decades of experience in the field, and from what we have learned from you, our customer.

- Machine operation is simple.
- Machine response is fast.
- Troubleshooting is pinpointed, quick, and easy.
- Fault history available.

A flat-panel 6.5 inch (165 mm) anti-glare display screen is provided with sensor-controlled backlight levels for superior visibility in all operating conditions. The screen is rugged and shock resistant in its construction to protect against dust, moisture, and rain. G+ provides a full color display on the control panel to illustrate the various aspects of the paver for set up and operation. A “run” screen on the control panel illustrates the various aspects of the paver. It includes leg position, paving speed and percentage of drive, steering, travel information, grade information, deviation meters, and more. Newly designed icons and color graphics make it easy to understand and easy to identify the targeted functions. G+ receives a track speed reading from pulse pickups in the track motors to give you real-time speed and total distance traveled. G+ controls feature a detailed fault history with a time stamp, date, and information to track when each fault occurred. GOMACO’s G+ control system has been proven around the world.

 

 

 

GP3

This GOMACO four-track GP3 is equipped with two 5400 series bar inserters to slipform this interstate project. The 5400 series bar inserter is rear loading for quick and easy accessibility.

 

 

 

GP3

Night paving is only one of the challenges on this project. The four-track GP3 with 3D machine guidance slipforms ten feet (3.05 m) wide over continuous steel reinforcing, while the paver’s left side tracks run within inches (millimeters) of the barrier wall.

 

 

 

GP3

The GOMACO four-track GP3 is equipped with a 27 foot (8.23 m) folding conveyor to slipform the variable barrier. The mounted conveyor feeds concrete into the mold’s hopper to deliver a consistent flow of concrete into the barrier mold.

 

 

 

GP3

G+ allows the smart accessories and guidance system on the GOMACO paver to be easily interfaced. Simply connect a machine guidance system, IDBI, tie bar inserter (TBI), power transition adjuster (PTA), GSI® (GOMACO Smoothness Indicator), and more to the GP3 slipform paver.

 

 

 

GP3

A telescoping spreader plow on front of the paver spreads the concrete evenly ahead of the mold. Its telescoping ability also allows for easy width changes.

 

 

 

GP3

An optional sidemounted paving package is available for minimum-clearance paving with the GP3 in transport mode.

 

 

 

GP3

Outriggers can be added to the two-track GP3 for transport loading and frame widening. With the addition of the outriggers, the GP3 can be raised and a truck trailer can be backed underneath the machine.

 

 

 

GP3

A special front mounted conveyor was added to this two-track GP3 for concrete placement. The ready-mix trucks were not able to get in front of the machine because of the steel rebar grid laid out on the grade, so the conveyor was added and the trucks discharged the concrete from the left side of the paver.

 

 

 

GP3

Equipped with 3D machine guidance along with two paver-mounted GSI (GOMACO Smoothness Indicator) units, this GOMACO GP3 slipforms a 15 foot (4.57 m) wide section of highway.

Transport Mode Made Easy

GOMACO GP3 Slipform Paver

The GP3 slipform paver is designed for easy transport. The operator can take the paver to the transport mode in minutes without assistance. The paver can be switched to the transport mode by simply rotating the legs to the transport position. After the legs are in the transport position, G+ travel is switched to “Transport” for complete control. A retractable, sliding console reduces the shipping width of the machine.

 

 

 

 

 

Smart Frame Widening

Smart Frame WideningG+ knows the width of its dual-telescoping frame. Changing the width of the slipform paver's mainframe is accomplished with the Smart Cylinders and GOMACO roller frame.

The smart width provides easy, accurate width change setup and a reference for G+ to control proper steering and track speeds while turning a radius at varying widths of the paver.

 

 

 

 

 

Smart Leg Positioning on Four-Track Pavers

Smart Leg Positioning and Smart Track SteeringPivot arms for the paver legs feature rotary-sensored slew drives. These smart pivots provide the G+ controls with information on the pivot arm angle, which coupled with the track rotation sensors, maintain the tracks in the straight-ahead line for steering, even when the leg pivot is at an angle.

 

 

 

 

Smart Track Steering on Four-Track Pavers

Track steering and rotation is accomplished with rotary-sensored slew drives. This smart track rotation provides the G+ controls with exact track location and position. Extreme steering is now possible with the tracks having the ability to steer farther than ever before.

Smart leg pivoting and smart track rotation now lets the G+ system automatically control the direction and speed of each individual track as it travels through a radius.

 

 

 

Safety By Design

The GP3 is carefully designed to give years of dependable and safe service. The emergency stop buttons are on the operator’s console and on the corners of the machine, which are easily accessible from the ground level. The machine is equipped with a backup alarm, which is designed to alert personnel around the machine when the tracks are set to operate in reverse. Other safety features include track guards, warning decals, operator horn, an operator’s manual, and a safety manual. GOMACO machines are also designed to provide the operator with excellent visibility over the entire paving operation.
