he most innovative screening works product Cangini of this year, are the Multiscreening Bucket with a new rotary double drum design. Until now Cangini has in fact produced tools to be coupled with machines from 0.6 to 14 tons. With the latest Multiscreening buckets, Cangini enters for the first

time in the 30 tons’ market. The newest models for both coupling systems, for excavators or frontal coupling, are respectively the VMS30 and the VMS-F20, for machines from 20 to 30 tons. The VMS-F20 model most innovative aspect is the compact design. The rotary double drums in HB400 are now two and their special

design allows to get the tool’s height unvaried and the visibility from the cab wide as a consequence. The work capacity has been increased, with a better mass balancing and a working area widely enlarged, near to the machine’s track width. Once again, Cangini proves to be the ideal partner for productivity and site safety.

This system can be used extremely easy by the guardrail installers to check road surface resistance and curbs on viaducts. Results of the test can be printed in real time, exported to a USB stick or sent by email to a company email address, to allow the manager in charge to view the report directly in the office. In addition to the test result, precise positioning test coordinates - measured through the GPS system of the pile driving machine - are also indicated.

The additives designed and produced by the Italian company Iterchimica for new infrastructures allows to reduce the thickness of the layers or to increase the service life of the pavement of more than 50% (in terms of number of axes passages), or both.
