New For 2018

GOMACO University is offering classes covering maintenance and diagnostics on the GOMACO G21, G22, and G+® control systems for both pavers and curb and gutter machines. GOMACO University will be offering a wide variety of classes for 3D machine guidance systems to help you understand the software, and how to set up the equipment in order to pave smoothly without stringline.

Dr. Michael Ayers, who is well known in the industry for his knowledge of concrete mixes, will be at the University this year and will be devoting his time to teaching two different classes on concrete mix designs with the University students. Concrete Mix Design 1 will cover the basics of concrete mix design and as time allows, move into advanced topics including cement types and application, aggregates, admixtures, optimizing the mix, and troubleshooting. Concrete Mix Design 2 will be a brief review of concrete mix design and paving issues, and then will move onto achieving specified values for strength and durability and an overview of basic concrete field and lab test procedures.

GUS I, the GOMACO University Simulator, features interchangeable controls and GBoxes. The controls can be switched between the G22 and G+ control systems in order to properly train students on the controls currently being used in the field. GBoxes are provided on each leg to accommodate improved steering and grade with G+ controls. The GBox features a new location for the slave controller and proportional valves, reduces hose and wiring needs, eases serviceability and troubleshooting, and provides easy access with a horizontal swing door at ground level.
