The P5320B ABG´s ability to pave widths up to 7 m comes courtesy of Volvo´s Omni V screed. This maximum paving width is achieved through the simple installation of optional extensions which attach to the unit´s standard 3 m track plates. The heavy-duty screed features powerful tamping bars and vibration systems that deliver a high pre-compaction density. An adjustable mechanical crown enables the screed plate to flex at +/- 3 degrees as well. The screed´s electronically ignited gas heating system, designed with flame failure protection, quickly and efficiently heats the screed plate, while an LPG blower burner system provides uniform heat for a high quality consistent mat finish.
Operators benefit from the safe and comfortable dual seating position in the paver´s cab, with ergonomically-positioned controls and sliding control panel which enables excellent visibility to the hopper, material deliver truck, auger area, material flow, screed and final mat. There is an ergonomically-designed control panel that includes a color TFT display that relays information on the paving cycle, as well as details on diagnostics and service data. An all-weather sunshade attached to the cab also reduces fatigue for increased safety and productivity, without sacrificing operator visibility. Handrails and all-weather grip walk areas permit further safe movement around all machine platforms for extra operational safety. To improve material transfer and flow, the P5320B ABG´s auger allows operators to adjust its height. Its reversal feature improves material control and reduces hand labor, contributing to additional productivity. For industry-wide compatibility, the electrical system fitted on the P5320B ABG is designed to accommodate standard global levelling systems.
