Bergkamp Inc., based in Salina, Kan., offers the M310 truck-mounted slurry seal and micro surfacing paver that allows operators to easily calibrate the machine, control production rates and simplify maintenance. The M310 uses the EMCAD (electronic mix control and diagnostic) system that displays current and average material ratios, total material used and material application rates — and can produce on-demand reports to track production for individual sections of the job, or the entire job, via an onboard printer. Operators can evaluate these printouts and make the necessary adjustments to more efficiently run the machine and calculate your bottom line.
The M310 utilizes direct-drive hydraulics that work with the EMCAD system. The system monitors and adjusts material ratios automatically according to the set points of the ingredients, production control setting and instantaneous feedback from the delivery system sensors to provide consistent mix. Aggregate, asphalt emulsion, water, additive and fines are proportionally delivered and metered according to the set points as per mix design. In addition, it electronically self-diagnoses control system or engine problems and displays a simple error code, reducing troubleshooting and repair time. Calibration is simplified, so fewer steps are required and manual calculations are eliminated. Even less experienced operators can quickly make adjustments during production without compromising the accuracy of the mix.
“With this unique system, the M310 is one of the simplest-to-operate machines available and provides owners with the information needed to calculate profits accurately,” said Scott
