Pavement Layout and Control

The robotic total station shown here provides steering and elevation control for the placer and slipform paver.

The operator doesn’t control the equipment during stringless paving but rather monitors the screen providing real-time information.

Stringless techniques are also used for slipform curb work.

Drivers don’t care how pavement is constructed, they want a smooth ride, no road closures, and no potholes.

Advantages to stringless paving include easy movement for the crew and equipment, smooth riding pavement, good concrete yield, and worker safety.

Using a stringless trimmer to maintain tight subgrade elevation control ensures good concrete yields.
