BOMAG Americas is set to feature two of its new generation milling machine designs at CONEXPO-CON/AGG 2023 in Las Vegas. Offering a maximum 42.7-in (1.200-mm) milling width, the BM 1200/35-2 features an enhanced swiveling mechanism for selective milling of road and ground surfaces, making it the right choice for county road, urban and roundabout applications. With its lighter, more compact and highly maneuverable design, the BOMAG BM 2200/65 large planer boasts a modest, 58-in (11473-mm) milling radius – up to 14% smaller than competitive models – to increase efficiency in tight-radius applications like small cul-de-sacs.

Both BOMAG milling machines are designed for comfort and efficiency, featuring vibration-isolated operator stations for comfortable operation from either a seated or standing position. Additional cushioning at platform standing areas helps to ensure fatigue-free operation. Their height-adjustable seats swivel 45 degrees in either direction to improve visibility. The mills’ slim contoured design gives the operator excellent visibility around the machine. Enhanced forward visibility offers operators an unprecedented view of the cutting edge, milling track and the front danger zone around the conveyor for exceptional milling precision.

Intuitive operation is the hallmark of BOMAG’s latest generation of cold planers. To simplify milling control, BOMAG offers Easy Level that clearly displays grade and slope settings on the large 7-in (177.8-mm) display. Mill settings are quickly changed with minimal navigation and limited submenus on the monitor for intuitive, efficient operation.

Variable milling speeds between three application-specific presets on the control panel allow the operator to tailor drum speed to the material to increase milling efficiency. The slim design of the BMS 15 L tool holder increases milling drum efficiency by converting more power into force on the cutting tool. BOMAG’s exclusive design improves cutter life and increases fuel efficiency by up to 20%. BOMAG offers a wide range of milling technologies from standard to fine to power drum designs to meet virtually any application need. The milling chamber’s side access door makes it possible for quick and efficient changing of milling drums.

With all key machine service points easily accessible, routine maintenance is completed quickly and efficiently on BOMAG mills. All filters can be conveniently reached from the operator’s platform through the wide-opening engine hood, as are the fill ports for fuel and AdBlue. Large left- and right-hand service panels provide simple accessibility to the machine’s auxiliary drive and milling gear, while engine service points are easily accessed from both above and below.

<h5>Pure performance in the compact class</h5>

Pure performance in the compact class

Meeting Tier 4 Final/Stage V emissions standards, the powerful 350 hp (260 kW) engine makes the BOMAG BM 1200/35-2 the highest performance planer in its class. It effectively matches power with drum speed for efficient milling at depths reaching 13 in (330 mm). Featuring a lateral arrangement of the milling roller, the mill excels in milling right up to obstructions like curbs or walls. Reduced material crushing results in milling performance increases of 30%.

Maximum operating weight for the BM 1200/35-2 mill is 56,000 lb (25.400 kg). Its height-adjustable conveyor belt offers a maximum discharge height of 15.7-ft (4.775 mm) and swivels 45 degrees to either side to increase truck-loading flexibility. Both inner and outer conveyor belts can be quickly disassembled for simple servicing. Its drive system offers infinitely variable working speeds reaching 15.2 fpm (4.6 mpm) and travel speeds from 0-4.7 mph (0-7.5 kmph) to reduce unproductive downtime while roading the mill.

<h5>Leading the way for half-lane</h5>

Leading the way for half-lane

The 60,296-lb (27,350-kg) BM 2200/65 half-lane mill’s powerful 630 hp (470 kW) engine perfectly matches power with milling speed for efficient milling to depths reaching 13.8 in (350 mm). Machine power coupled with the BMS 15 L tool holder system makes this mill the most cost-effective planer in the light 6.6-ft (2-m) class. Stepless platform side-shift up to 7.8 in (200 mm) provides excellent visibility to the right cutting edge and side plate, allowing the operator to hold the milling line.

To simplify milling control, BOMAG Easy Cut technology automatically regulates the height of the rear drive, so the rear of the machine follows the front to its set depth, making the operator’s work simpler. Its conveyor offers a 16-ft (4880-mm) discharge height plus larger, 130˚ conveyor slewing angle – 65˚ to the left/right of center – allowing material to be efficiently discharged into trucks on both sides of the mill. To facilitate transport, the conveyor retracts to a length 23.6 in (600 mm) shorter than previous designs.

The BM 2200/65 mill on display at CONEXPO-CON/AGG is equipped with the BOMAG exclusive ION DUST SHIELD. With this unique system that protects machine workers, fine dust extracted from the milling chamber passes through the ION DUST SHIELD box before being blown onto the conveyor belt. Electrodes positively charge the fine dust, which encourages dust particles to bond together, forming non-hazardous course dust particles that are removed by the conveyor belt. This pioneering BOMAG technology meets the most stringent fine dust regulations by removing up to 88% more fine dust particles smaller than 10 microns in size than standard dust extraction systems.
