DIG INTO THE HARDEST Untitled-17 1 4/11/18 9:01 AM Online tool Milling (continued) Trade groups create free web tool for pavement design Cement and concrete groups worked together on a two-year effort to launch the interactive tool The platform is available for any- one to use online to get the indus- try's recommendations on proper pavement design for all markets and types. It's intended for city, county and consultant engineers, academia, or anyone involved in design of roadway, industrial, and parking area pavements. The platform encompasses differ- ent methods: bonded and un- bonded, standard jointed pavement design, continuously reinforced pavement design and roller com- pacted concrete pavement design. The design website is the result of the biggest collaborative effort by the American Concrete Pavement Asso- ciation and industry partners. The drive system and chamber design work together to reduce wear on the drum and teeth while increasing productivity, the company says. The proprietary drive system enabled Cat to move the gearbox and build the other way into the frame. The machines are powered by a 325-horsepower Cat C9 engine and available in rotor and chamber widths of 39.4 inches on the PM310, 48.2 inches on the PM312, and 51.2 inches on the PM313. The rotor system design allowed Cat to make each 300-Series cold planer the same overall width. Available options on the PM310, PM312 and PM313 include LED lighting, track or wheel undercarriage, Cat Grade Control and a dust abatement system.
