Wirtgen Group to unveil extensive product range
17 February 2017 - 12:05
More than 40 exhibits to be shown ranging from mobile cone crushers to asphalt pavers and cold-milling machines
WIRTGEN have announced that more than 40 products – many of which are new to the North American market – will be displayed at Conexpo-Con/Agg, including innovative machines and technologies for road construction, road rehabilitation, the extraction and processing of minerals materials, and the recycling of construction/demolition waste.
No fewer than six cold-milling machines, a slipform paver and a texture-curing machine will be making their US debuts at the show. For highways projects, the company will be presenting their high-performance W 250i and W 220i cold-milling models, along with two of the company’s latest compact milling machines – the W 150 CFi and W 120 CFi. Wirtgen will also be exhibiting the W 60 Ri and W 35 Ri from their latest small milling machine generation.
The SP 64i slipform paver also will be presented for the first time. It joins the SP 61i and SP 62i models in forming the new SP 60 series that will replace the globally successful SP 500. The SP 60 series combines the wide-ranging applications of the SP 500 with the state-of-the-art technologies of the next largest series, the SP 90.
As the second pioneering solution for high-quality concrete paving, the TCM 180i texture-curing machine will round off the range of Wirtgen’s newly unveiled products in Las Vegas.
Visitors will also be able to experience the innovative technologies of Vögele’s asphalt pavers and screeds. The mini class will be represented by the Super 700-3i. The new Super 2000-3i and Super 2003-3i highway-class pavers will also be on display, both of which were designed specifically for paving highways and for applications on large industrial areas.
In addition, the Super 1800-3i SprayJet spray paver, Super 2100-3i and Vögele PowerFeeder MT 3000-2i Offset will also be exhibited. The latest Super 1700-3i and Super 1703-3i are particularly noteworthy and will also be among the highlights of the Vögele exhibits. These wheeled pavers are cutting-edge machines suitable for a wide variety of applications. Typical jobs are secondary roads and highways, but, due to their compact design, they are also ideal for commercial and municipal applications.
Under the Hamm brand, Wirtgen say they will be showcasing new models and an inventive operating concept for asphalt and soil compactors, including new tandem rollers from the HD+ Series and super compact HD CompactLine.
The DV+ Series tandem rollers with unique pivot steering, which offer precise compaction even in very confined conditions, will also be introduced to the North American market.
Meanwhile, Hamm have extended the successful H Series soil compactor range with new models in the class up to 84in. With their wide variety of equipment options, they can be customized for machine leasing as well as for earthworks contractors.
Hamm will also be presenting a new pneumatic rubber-tyred roller whose weight is extremely easy to ballast. The new models within the DV+ and HD+ tandem roller Series, as well as the H Series soil compactors, make up the innovative Easy Drive operating concept.
Under the company’s Kleemann product brand, Wirtgen will be presenting their latest developments in crushing technology for use in quarries, including the Mobicone MCO 11 Pro mobile cone crusher. The robust plant is equipped with a low-consumption diesel-electric drive that permits operation with an external power supply. The integrated continuous feed system delivers optimum crusher utilization allowing up to 470 tonnes/h to be processed.
Three other models of the successful Kleemann EVO series will also be showcased: the Mobicone MCO 9 Si EVO mobile cone crusher; Mobirex MR 130 Zi EVO2 mobile impact crusher; and Mobicat MC 110 Zi EVO mobile jaw crusher.
These machines boast compact dimensions, are easy to transport and can be used flexibly for both virgin stone and recycling applications. Equipped with a diesel-electric drive, the crushing plants run economically and efficiently, yet at the same time are very powerful and ensure a high-quality end product. The simple operating concept of the EVO units supports intuitive control and offers good interlinking options.
