Designed For Safety

The GP4 is carefully designed to give years of dependable and safe service. The emergency stop buttons are on the operator’s console and on the corners of the machine, which are easily accessible from the ground level. The machine is equipped with a backup alarm, which is designed to alert personnel around the machine when the tracks are set to operate in reverse. Other safety features include track guards, warning decals, operator horn, an operator’s manual, and a safety manual. GOMACO machines are also designed to provide the operator with excellent visibility over the entire paving operation.

GOMACO CORPORATION RECOMMENDS THE IMPLEMENTATION OF ALL SAFETY PROCEDURES.

 

Transport Mode

The GP4 slipform paver is designed for easy transport. A retractable, sliding console reduces the shipping width of the machine. The paver can be switched to the transport mode by simply driving the legs around to the transport position. After the legs are in the transport position, G+ travel is switched to “Transport” for complete control. The operator can take this paver to the transport mode in minutes without assistance.

Smart Frame Widening

Smart Frame WideningG+ knows the width of its dual-telescoping frame. Changing the width of the mainframe is accomplished with the Smart Cylinders and GOMACO roller frame. The GP4 can telescope up to seven feet (2.13 m) on each side of the frame for a total of 14 feet (4.27 m) of automatic frame widening.

The Smart Width provides easy, accurate width change setup and also a reference for G+ to control proper steering and track speeds while turning a radius at varying widths of the paver.

     
     
     

Smart Leg Positioning

Pivot arms for the paver legs feature rotary-sensored slew drives. These Smart Pivots provide the G+ controls with information on the angle of rotation, which coupled with the track rotation sensors, maintain the tracks in the straight-ahead line for steering.   Smart Leg Positioning and Smart Track Steering
   

Smart Track Steering

 

Track steering and rotation is accomplished with rotary-sensored slew drives. This smart track rotation provides the G+ controls with exact track location and position. Extreme steering is now possible, with the tracks having the ability to steer farther than ever before.

Smart leg pivoting and smart track rotation now lets the G+ system automatically control the direction and speed of each individual track as it travels through a radius.

 
 
 
 

Sensored Leg Pivots and Track Rotation

 

Transverse Mode

Sensored steer feedback with sensored leg pivots provide continuous reference for the straight-ahead track positioning.   Full-steer tracks are turned perpendicular to the straight-ahead line. The G+ control system recognizes the track positioning and provides automatic steering control in the transverse mode.
     
     
     
  The GP4 design utilizes rotary-sensored slew drives for radial swing on the pivot arms and also for the track rotation.
