B038AM SMARTRACKER™ - Multi wheels hamburg wheel tracker

( Asphalt )

  • EN12697-22
  • AASHTO T324

The most versatile Wheel Tracker on the market able to perform EN and the USA AASHTO tests. The machine is designed to allow researchers and practitioners to conduct tests under dry (in air) and/or under water (wet). Now you can perform wet or dry test with both wheels or run one wheel under dry and one wheel under wet condition simultaneously during a single test.

The Hamburg wheel tracking device can be used to determine the resistance of Hot Mix Asphalt (HMA) to rutting and moisture sensitivity. It also determines the creep slope, the stripping inflection point and the stripping slope.

Equipped with the latest Cyber Plus Progress, Matest SmarTracker controls the movement of the wheels in order to obtain a perfect sinusoidal wave. The measurement points for defining the ruth depth are completely customizable according to EN or AASHTO Standards and for research purposes.

MATEST SmarTracker has been developed by our R&D engineers and scientists in association with some of the most experienced and reputable industry experts in the USA and the world.


  • Meets and exceeds EN 12697-22 and AASHTO T324:19.
  • No lifting of heavy wheel assemblies. Wheels retract automatically away from samples and park into rest position.
  • Sturdy design to withstand harsh construction laboratory environment.
  • Performs both wet or dry tests simultaneously.
  • Sliding sample positioning mechanism for easy mould handling and placement in the machine.
  • Cyber Plus Progress technology allows application of load with a perfect sinusoidal wave, in accordance with AASHTO T-324:19.
  • Fully Automatic machine. Detects and stops the test when the target rut depth is reached.
  • 7" touch-screen control unit, new interface and modern user friendly approach.
  • Each of the two wheel assemblies is equipped with displacement transducers for rut measurement.
  • Mechanical recirculating water bath for temperature control within ± 1 °C.
  • Easy to load, unload, drain water and clean the unit after each test.
  • Compact design to accomodate small construction labs and make maintenance easier.
  • Covered by US Patent No 9964,471.

It is also available the model B038AM-15 without cover, which allows water tests only.
