Road Machinery hosted an educational paving seminar Feb. 10 at its Gilbert, Ariz., branch. The presentation was to promote the “Best Practices” for paving and compaction. More than 110 people attended including representatives from 16 paving contractors (owners and operators), four counties, 11 cities, ADOT and the Federal Highway Department.

The free seminar centered around principles and fundamentals for paving and compaction in a generalized form so that no matter what brand of equipment was being used by the participants, everyone could add the valuable information to their knowledge banks.

A Wirtgen dealer based in Phoenix, Ariz., Road Machinery had Hamm smooth drum and rubber tired rollers and the Vögele Vision 5200-2 10-foot and Vögele Vision 5100-2 8-foot pavers on display for up close inspection.

Richard Evans, vice president of Hamm Compaction Sales conducted the compaction seminar and discussed how to look for and overcome obstacles in multiple paving projects.

Nars Singh, manager of commercial support and development for Vögele handled the paving section covering concerns with free floating screeds to continuous paving and maintenance of the multiple integrated products needed for a paving project.

“Most of the attendees have learned paving and compaction from on the job training and rarely ever in a class room,” said Road Machinery General Manager David Weston. “The Road Machinery team wanted to assist all the attendees by exposing them to the expertise of our presenters from the manufacturers and introduce them to our product lines.”
