60 • March 2017 FEATURE SHOW REPORT The 3.500 TC reflects what product engi- neers note is a search for a new, intelligent concrete transport vehicle design offering ergonomic controls, full-view visibility and air conditioned cab, and ensuring a high level of performance and reliability on the worksite. The concrete mixer has a 3.5 cubic meter yield; double mixing blade; mixing and jet speeds, regardless of the number of turns of the diesel motor; concrete jet in reverse mode; and, a 600-liter loader with a hydraulic command opening for direct barrel sand & gravel charging. When fully loaded, the machine can handle slopes up to 30 percent. The Concrete-Mate system weighs material directly inside the barrel versus alternatives using hydraulic systems built on the blade. Among digital technologies on the Carmix 3.500 TC is Promix, a stain- less steel probe housed inside the mixer and powered by solar panel. It provides details on mix slump, temperature and moisture, plus mixer rotational speed, and also alerts operators when mix cycle is complete and concrete is ready to place. All the data is updated every 10 seconds and sent to the receiver. — Metalgalante S.p.A., Italy; www. Booth B7426 CARMIX
