World of Asphalt and AGG1 2012 Shows Are A Huge Success

Record-breaking numbers for attendee registrations, exhibit space, number of exhibitors and education

The just-concluded 2012 World of Asphalt and AGG1 expositions were an unqualified success, posting record numbers for attendee registrants as well as amount of exhibit space, number of exhibitors and number of education session tickets sold.

“Attendees and their companies understand the importance of learning and networking to stay sharp and take advantage of a recovering economy. They know that the industry connections at World of Asphalt and AGG1 – between buyers and sellers, peer-to-peer and with industry experts – are invaluable to meet the business challenges still facing our industry sectors in the U.S. and world economies,” stated Show Director Melissa Magestro.

The co-located World of Asphalt Show & Conference and AGG1 Aggregates Forum & Expo were held March 13-15, 2012 at the Charlotte Convention Center in Charlotte, North Carolina.

Record attendee registration numbers totaled more than 6,500 at show close. Registrants came from all 50 states, all 10 Canadian provinces and more than 50 other countries worldwide. More than 35 percent were company presidents/owners, vice presidents, general managers or chief financial officers, and all together more than 84 percent of registrants were in managerial roles.

The show floor covered a record 115,000-plus net square feet of exhibit space (10,684 square meters) – a 30-percent increase – taken by a record number of 408 exhibitors. Leading companies showcased their newest products and technologies aimed at the aggregates, asphalt, pavement maintenance and traffic safety industry sectors.

Education is a cornerstone of the shows and a record 6,200-plus education session tickets were purchased by attendees for the shows’ signature learning programs: AGG1 Academy, Asphalt Pavement Conference and People, Plants and Paving Training Program.

More than 20 industry organizations were official supporters of World of Asphalt and AGG1, and the shows are industry-owned and operated.

“These are industry-driven events where participants have a say in planning so the shows best meet their needs. They can feel these are truly their shows,” Magestro noted.

World of Asphalt is owned by National Asphalt Pavement Association (NAPA) with Association of Equipment Manufacturers (AEM) and National Stone, Sand and Gravel Association (NSSGA). AGG1 is owned by NSSGA. AEM produces both shows.

Dynapac Compact Cold Planers Offer 20-inch Milling

Dynapac PL500T and PL500TD 20-inch (500 mm) compact cold planers are available as three- or four-wheeled units.

The cold planers feature a maximum cutting depth of 6.3 inches for the PL500T and 7.9 inches for the PL500TD. Each model is powered by a step-3 compliant Cummins QSB 4.5 C110/C130 diesel engine. The engine ratings are 110 hp @ 2200 rpm for the PL500T, and 130 hp for the PL500TD.

Special drums for demarcation work and fine-spaced cutting-drums are designed to be easy and quick to change. Smaller drums with an adapted scraper blade and a side-cutting wheel are available as options on both models.

Dynapac’s patented hydraulically operated front sealed cutter housing, adapted to the shape of the cutting drum, is designed to minimize the accumulation of the milled material.

An additional option for both models is the Dynapac-patented parallelogram front axle. This design is intended for increased traction, reduced wear, and improved wheel control in case of a height difference for the front wheels.

The company has addressed operator ergonomic and safety issues by reducing vibration on the operator’s platform; orienting the controls and instrumentation to face toward the operator; and adopting a user-friendly control-panel layout.

As an option, the PL500T and PL500TD can be fitted with a 39.5-inch conveyor for loading a wheel loader bucket, or with an 18-foot conveyor for loading trucks. Additional options such as a weatherproof canopy, a hydraulically foldable right rear wheel, or the Dynapac electronic leveling system are designed to customize the planer to the contractor’s needs.
