10th Mexican Asphalt Congress - a strong interest in HMP´s testing technology for soil mechanics

The "X CONGRESSO MEXICANO DEL ASFALTO - EXPOASFALTO" 2017 took place from 23rd to 25th August 2017 in Cancun, Mexico.

The event is organized every two years by the AMAAC - Mexican Association of Asphalt. The AMAAC has set itself the goal of improving the quality and competitiveness of products, processes and services related to asphalt, as well as supporting research and technological development by means of specialized trainings and technical publications.

All important for the quality of a road is, however, not only the quality of the surface but also the quality of the bearing layers beneath.

That´s why the booth of our Mexican sales partner,  where the static and dynamic plate load test by means of the HMP test equipment HMP PDG and HMP LFG was demonstrated, aroused brisk interest amongst the experts.

HMP LFG4 - safely arrived in Paraguay

"Building calls for testing." This also applies in the faraway Paraguay. We just received the message from a local geotechnical engineer, that his Light Weight Deflectometer HMP LFG4 has landed well. He and his colleagues were already eagerly waiting and now look forward to the usage of the tester.

HMP LFG - in use worldwide

In 2013, the government of Paraguay started a road improvement and development project, including the construction of a new six-lane highway in the capital city Asunción with connections to the local transport network and also with a connection to the coastal road (still under construction), which toghether form a ring around the city to relieve the traffic there. Also in this case, the dynamic plate load tester from Magdeburg is used for quality assurance.

Public authorities/institutions use LFG to save money

Cost and time savings > community Gemünden and Homberg use HMP LFGAgain and again, communities need to repair brokenup road surfaces, eliminate the consequences of water pipe leakages and carry out the necessary roadway renovations. In case that this is a classified roads, in other words a roadway for which maintenance the federal state or province is in general responsible, the responsible supervisor requires a professional proof regarding proper compaction of the filled up area or rather proper restoration of the road surface.

Until now in communities it was only allowed to be done by specialized companies, because they have to have special test equipment. This increased the costs, especially because the construction works could normally not be carried out self-operated by the building yard, but also a subcontracting was necessary.

By means of their own dynamic plate load tester, decisions and proofs for construction works can now be made even faster and cheaper.

GUATEMALA - test equipment from HMP make bridges safer

Guatemala - Is the filled ground of the bridge bearing sufficiently compacted?Dynamic plate load tests are also performed in Guatemala in order to measure quickly the compaction quality as well as the bearing capacity of the foundation material.

Here it is tested, if the filled ground of the bridge bearing is really safe.

Guatemala is the most populous state in Central America in the south of the Yucatan peninsula.

All important cities are connected by paved roads. From approximately 15.000 km long road network, altogether only 30 percent are paved! In October 2007 the last train rode. Since then, all shipments are handled by trucks or buses and an expansion of the road network more urgently pushed.

Azerbaijan – HMP PDG in use for infrastructure development

Final check of delivery by HMP to Azerbaijan

Many Static and Dynamic Plate Load Tester from HMP are already in use on Azerbaijan construction sites.

Today another 2 Static and 1 Dynamic Plate Load Tester will be dispatched!

"What is so special about the test equipment from HMP? It just works!" - means our local partner ... and smiles.

The Azerbaijan economy is growing very fast. This is based on a large extent of the expanding petrol industry, which is the most important economic sector there. The further development of the different sectors is the country’s main economic challenge.

That’s why the Azerbaijan state revenues are mostly used in order to optimize the infrastructure. The main focus of investments is on water supply, sewerage and transportation, especially supported by developing the road network. Until 2015 several thousand kilometres of roads will be constructed in order to improve the connection between the particular regions.

In order to accelerate the construction projects and for their quality assurance test methods from Germany are being increasingly used, such as static and dynamic plate load tests by means of the HMP PDG and HMP LFG.

Prof. Dr. Dallshad Khidhir Bzeni from the Technical University of Salahaddin in Iraq is delighted about the nondestructive and most notably fast way load tests are done with test equipment made by HMP.

Assist. Prof. Dr. Dallshad Khidhir Bzeni, University of Salahaddin, Iraq with Gunnar Hennings, HMP

He is convinced that the Dynamic and the Static Plate Load Test will soon become standard in Iraq.

Conventionally used laboratory procedures, like the the stamping cylinder, are very time-consuming and because of their low quantity they only have a spot-check character. By means of a rapid test method in situ, within a very short time a lot of tests can be made. Extensive correlations ensure the comparability with the laboratory procedures.

Ethiopia - test equipment from HMP pushes railway construction

Shipment preparation Dynamic and Static Plate Load devices HMP LFG and HMP PDG for track construction in EthiopiaA total of 30 Light Weight Deflectometers HMP LFG and additionally 8 Static Plate Load Testers HMP PDG left our storage for being sent towards Ethiopia!

The test equipment was urgently needed for the speedy extension of the rail road between Djibouti and Addis Adeba - so far the only railway line in Ethiopia.

In September 2010 the Ethiopian Railway Corporation (ERC) announced its plans to build in total 5000 kilometers of new railway lines. The national five-year plan for the period between 2010-2015 schedules to build first 2395 km of the new rail road, which shall connect 49 cities.

Ethiopia is currently one of the world's fastest growing economies. By 2020 the country wants to be a "middle-income" country. In particular China is supporting Ethiopia with their railway construction. The main route will be the old connection to Djibouti. Via the port of Djibouti Ethiopia is proceesing 90 per cent of its goods import and export. Railway transport is cheaper and far less susceptible than Ethiopia's jammed streets, which are not rarely flooded in the rainy season.

First HMP LFG – in use for 22 years!

Light weight deflectometer HMP LFG 0002 in use for 22 yearsThe first HMP LFG was sold according to new Engineering Code in October 1992 and still works properly – after almost 22 years of continuous operation!

Mr. Christian Recklies (engineer at the “PGI Planungsbüro Geohydrologie, Grund- und Ingenieurbau GmbH, Magdeburg) just received it here recently cleaned and calibrated.

That’s the advantage of a calibration directly at the manufacturer - certified by the Federal Highway Research Institute (BASt).

We do know all of our device generations in detail, clean the devices properly, carry out necessary repairs and upgrate the electronics by means of a firmware update. Our “high-quality care” guarantees you also a safe use of your tester many years to come!

Ukrainian Railways trust on HMP!

Did you know this?

Our Light Weight Deflectometer has been of fundamental importance for the trouble-free train operations in the host country of the European Championship 2012. The Ukrainian southern railway has planned the expansion of the transport corridor on time. For the first time a 13-ton virbation roller and a HMP LFGpro for internal quality assurance & fast review of achieved compaction were used. Several rail sections were reconstructed, straightened and newly filled. The result speaks for itself - the new Express-Railway sections were completed one month earlier than planned!

KERN-HAUS uses HMP LFGpro for quality assurance

Due to tradition construction quality is a top priority for Kern-Haus.

“The most important prerequisite for carried out work is the craftsmanship. Already in 1994 the 5-phases TÜV inspection during the construction phase was implemented at Kern-Haus. In that way Kern-Haus records a maximum and uncompromising performance for the building owners and already set high standards for the whole sector at an early point in time. Additional voluntary quality assurance offers the most security possible to our building owners. Even before pouring the concrete floor slab, the foundation stability is being evaluated by means of the Light Weight Deflectometer HMP LFG to make sure that this house has a solid basis.”

Congratulations!

Congratulations! our freshly examined Bachelor of Business Mrs. BluszisIt is done!

Hard work pays off - this slogan can also be confirmed by our freshly examined Bachelor of Business Mrs. Bluszis. On the occasion of her good degree company founder Klaus Hennings personally insists on congratulating her in person with a bouquet of flowers.

Her study at the chamber of commerce and industry (IHK) Magdeburg, which was financed by HMP, was a real challenge for Mrs. Bluszis, because she had to balance her job and family despite of the exam stress.

Accordingly great is the pleasure for HMP, that Mrs. Bluszis can now increase her engagement in the company due to her additional qualifications.

What a weekend! The 1. FC Magdeburg received Germany’s up-and-coming elite for the 13. Matthias-Pape-commemoration-tourney. A total of 20 teams from the U15-age-group were united by the FCM under the roof of the venerable Hermann-Gieseler-Sports-Hall, looking for the successor of last year winner VfL Bochum. With this tourney the Magdeburger soccer club reminds of the juniors trainer Matthias Pape, who died in 2001 and with whom the A-Juniors won the DFB-Cup in 1999.

It was a great tourney. Fortuna Düsseldorf beat off the challenge against the players of VfL Wolfsburg and won the tourney. We can comfort ourselves, that we lost in the quarter finals against the winners.

Emperor Otto Festival in Magdeburg!

Last weekend Emperor Otto the Great and his second wife Adelheid again ruled Magdeburg for three days. More than 1.000 participants were involved. Knights, jugglers, minstrels, minnesingers, jestens and many other performers took us with them on a journey back to Middle Ages.

Magdeburg is more than 1200 years old. Many famous celebrities have left their mark. (Almost) every inhabitant of Magdeburg remembers two historic figures: Otto the Great - Roman-German emperor. And Otto von Guericke - councillor and scientist.

Magdeburg belongs to the medieval metropolises of the Holy Roman Empire. The name was mentioned for the first time within the Diedenhofener Kapitular, issued by Charlemagne in 805. A good 150 years later the initial Boom was registered for this place: emperor Otto the Great made Magdeburg to an archbishopric in 968.

We are proud of our town! That's why we do support this project.

"The nomination for the award itself is already a first class honor." Barbara Stamm, chairwoman of the Bavarian parliament, 2010

Feeling responsible for its own region is one of the categories the contest pays attention to. Turnover and profit are important as well, furthermore the number of jobs and apprenticeship training positions, the capability to be innovative or the marketing concept.

Up to now we reached top marks in all categories. We were already awarded as finalist in 2010. Maybe we are able to grab for the “Große Preis“ this year.

“Reliable technics and quick service are of enormous importance for us for being able to perform all our daily tasks. Testing devices are working materials for us! For more than 20 years we count on that everything works without problems with HMP. Today we are sending our first Light Drop-Weight Tester HMP LFG (year of manufacture 1992!) into retirement and in exchange we are taking a HMP LFG-SD of the latest version into our inventory.”

ICP Ingenieurbüro Prof. Czurda, Dr. Günther & Partner GmbH Leipzig, Mr. Lorenz

“A lot of our customers benefit from our actual event “Old for New” and save money when rebuying a new tester. Others are ordering a cost-saving changeover of their tester, to be on the actual state of the art again. But after 20 years in continuous use this is not profitable anymore. Based on our 30 years lasting experience and the direct contact to our customers, we were able to optimize our testers for the tough daily routine on the construction site.”

International standard ASTM E2835-11 for Light Weight Deflectometer HMP LFG

ASTM E2835-11 for Light Weight Deflectometer HMP LFGGood news!

The international standards organization ASTM International, headquartered in the US, has officially accepted the test method for measuring deflections using a Light Weight Deflectometer as an international standard test method under the registration number ASTM E2835-11.

The ASTM standards are comparable to the German DIN-Norm and are mandatory, when conducting public works in America. The approval of the ASTM to execute tests with the Light Weight Deflectometer results in increased application of the dynamic plate load test, not only in America but in many countries of the world which use US-American standards for construction.
