New TeleEndXL: Telescopic Paving Kit End Section

TeleEndXL for Concrete Slipform Paver
The TeleEnd: Telescopic Paving Kit End Section was originally released with 3 feet (0.9 m) of quick width change capability.  G&Z has now introduced the TeleEndXL.  The New TeleEndXL features 4 feet (1.2 m) of quick width change capability.  The New TeleEndXL allows the contractor 8 feet (2.5 m) of quick width adjustment when the paving kit is fitted with two TeleEndXLs.  This telescopic range adds to the argument that G&Z slipform pavers are the most versatile machines on the market.

G&Z’s TeleEnd has revolutionized the way contractors change slipform paver paving kit widths.  The TeleEnd allows the contractor to perform width changes quickly and with fewer personnel.  The TeleEnd is made up of a telescopic terminal that can be filled with easy to install add-in paving kit spacer sections.  The Add-in Paving Kit Spacer Sections are made up of three components: a front spacer, a rear spacer, and a bottom pan section.  The pans have a “tongue and groove” connection to engage the front spacer and fine level adjusters to attach the rear spacer. There are line up dowels on the spacers and pans to guide the sections together meaning there are no bolts to fix the sections as they are held together by hydraulic clamping forces.

Not all contractors necessarily require the ability to change widths in the middle of a pour, however many do want the capability to change widths quickly in between pours.  Presently, the market offers concrete paving equipment which utilizes variable and quick width solutions but can not meet tight smoothness specifications.  Today’s market requires contractors to have the ability to change widths quickly to meet production schedules while not sacrificing smoothness. The G&Z TeleEnd answers both the need for quick width changes as well as the ability to achieve smooth pavements.  Because of the quick width change capability the contractor has a better chance of paving everyday.
