Joseph Vögele AG has introduced the AB 200 extending screed for paving narrow paths, paving between tram rails or paving in milled tracks. It has a basic width of just 1.1 m and extends hydraulically up to 2 m. This gives the new screed a basic width 10 cm narrower than the existing AB 220 and facilitates high-precision paving projects in extremely cramped conditions. Using a special system for pave width reduction, users can also implement pave widths of just 0.5 m, as well as achieve a pave width of up to 3.2 m using bolt-on extensions. The AB 200 expands the potential applications for Mini Class pavers and provides road builders in urban construction, landscaping and track work with more room for manoeuvre than before. Together with the slightly larger AB 220, Vögele covers the entire range of pave widths for small construction projects. The road paver manufacturer supplies the new screed in two compaction variants: the AB 200 V with vibrators for the SUPER 700(i) and the AB 200 TV with tamper and vibrators for the SUPER 800(i).
The new AB 200 is the smallest Vögele screed. As an extending screed, it is flexible and especially suitable for changing pave widths. With a total of 12 different extending and fixed-width screeds, and pave widths from 0.5 to 18 m, Vögele has the right screed for every road construction application. “We develop our products in close collaboration with our customers and claim to stock the ideal solution for every requirement,” said Bastian Fleischer, Product Manager at Jospeph Vögele AG. “Having launched our largest screed, the SB 350, at bauma 2019, we are now rounding off the small end of our range with the AB 200.”
