Bill Troxler visits ASPARi on 25 July 2014


5 September 2014

Troxler Electronic Laboratories, the developer of the Nuclear Density Gauge, recently visited ASPARi researchers at the University of Twente.

Since 1958, Troxler has been dedicated to developing, manufacturing and servicing precision quality control and measurement equipment, including nuclear gauges, gyratory compactors, and asphalt ignition ovens. ASPARi researchers were recently visited by Bill Troxler Jr. of Troxler Electronic Laboratories, the developer and manufacturer of the Nuclear Density Gauge used by many a contractor throughout the world to measure the density of asphalt during construction operations. The visit was initiated by close associate André Molenaar, professor emeritus of TU Delft.

André Dorée, Seirgei Miller, Frank Bijleveld and Alexandr Vasenev shared several ASPARI research experiences of relevance to the leading edge company and raised some practical challenges currently being experienced by ASPARi contractors. These include the need for dynamic density measurements during asphalting operations and the use of robotics to possibly facilitate real-time measurements. In addition, Mr. Troxler described some of the current initiatives taking place around such challenges. ASPARi. Both parties agreed to facilitate research and skills transfer in a number of areas which are of relevance to the road construction industry in both countries.
