Walking End Car
The T/C-5600 texture/cure machine features a new walking end car with cure tank. Frame sections can be added or removed by turning the tracks 90 degrees, and walking the end car with attached cure tank to the required width. The walkway and railway telescope with the walking end car.
The transverse tining undercarriage has 12 inches (305 mm) of hydraulic vertical height adjustment and is controlled using a sonic sensor, allowing the tining carriage to trace the slab elevation.
A sonic sensor traces the slab with the transverse travel of the tining broom. The depth of tining is controlled by the hydraulic height adjustment on the broom carriage. This provides accurate tining depth, eliminates rail adjustments, and eliminates the need for a power transition adjuster (PTA).
Proximity switches and an encoder are used to control the tining carriage end points and travel distance across the slab via user inputs to the G+ controller.
The T/C-5600 is capable of advancing forward the length of the transverse tining broom with the auto-advance feature.
The Tracer Texture Control also works on transition adjustments with longitudinal tining.
The longitudinal tining operation has a sonic sensor mounted over the center of the slab. The center assembly has 10 inches (254 mm) of hydraulic vertical height adjustment for crowning. The ends of the hinged longitudinal tining framework are used to set the tining member to grade.
