  • Publication number: 20190177928
    Abstract: A road finisher including an undercarriage, a chassis, a hopper, a paving screed, and a lifting device for lifting the chassis relative to the undercarriage at least in a rear region of the road finisher. The lifting device comprises a rocker mounted rotatably around an undercarriage rotational axis at an undercarriage-side bearing surface and rotatably around a chassis rotational axis at a chassis-side bearing surface. The lifting device further comprises a length-variable adjustment member connecting a chassis-side link point to a rocker-side link point and configured to change a distance between the chassis-side link point and the rocker-side link point by changing its length to selectively lift or lower the chassis relative to the undercarriage. A distance between the chassis rotation axis and the undercarriage rotation axis is greater than a distance between the chassis rotation axis and the chassis-side bearing surface.

  • Publication number: 20180327023
    Abstract: A method for operating a road paver comprises paving a road surface with the road paver along a road bed, wherein a paving screed of the road paver is drawn over the road bed along a paving direction of travel. The following steps are performed using a curve correction unit: determining a value defining a steering angle of the road paver; calculating based on the determined value an expected offset of the paving screed, which results from a yawing movement of the road paver during steering with the steering angle defined by the determined value; and automatically correcting a lateral extension position of at least one lateral extension part of the paving screed based on the expected offset, so that the offset is compensated. The disclosure also refers to a road paver comprising a corresponding curve correction unit.

  • Publication number: 20180282952
    Abstract: A road paver comprises a generator, a control device and a screed, the screed comprising a basic screed and being suited to be modified, by selectively attaching or detaching broadening parts, from a first to at least a second, different screed configuration. The basic screed and the broadening parts each comprise one compacting unit and one electric heating element to be supplied with power from the generator for heating the compacting unit to prevent the laying material from adhering to the compacting unit and to finish a high-quality road pavement. The control device is configured to individually switch on or off each one of the two resistance wire windings of the heating element of the basic screed depending on the screed configuration determined by the control device to distribute electrical power generated by the generator to the individual resistance wire windings.
