LANGENTHAL, Switzerland – At Ammann, the operator is front-of-mind when designing the asphalt-mixing plant control system and after-sales initiatives, too.
The goal is to make the plant easy to run, which in turn helps the operator access efficiencies that reduce material usage, fuel burn and other costs. Additional support programs ensure operators maximise uptime and ensure quality, too.
Here are some of the ways Ammann assists operators of asphalt-mixing plants:
The as1 Control System
This advanced control system is the brains of the plant. It is technologically advanced, yet it also enables easy, intuitive operation. The proprietary system improves quality while reducing material waste and energy consumption. A variety of different modules concentrates on specific areas of the production process, helping operators achieve key goals.
The Operator Club is open to the individuals who run the Ammann plants. The club provides members with training discounts, free admission to VIP events at trade shows and a subscription to the Ammann Customer Magazine – among other benefits. There is no cost to join the club.
Perhaps the key component of the group is the Operator Club Blog, a valuable communication tool that helps those who control the plants overcome challenges big and small. Ammann trainers – who author the posts – are current on the latest trends and issues facing plant operators. These trainers have visited countless plant sites around the world and have seen firsthand the obstacles encountered by those who run the plants.
The insight they share can enhance the operation of any model of asphalt-mixing plant.
