State-of-the-art Wirtgen large milling machine technology for the one-metre class
The advanced, industry-leading technologies of the Wirtgen W 100 F(i), W 120 F(i) and W 130 F(i) F-series compact milling machines include digital assistance systems such as MILL ASSIST, Wirtgen Performance Tracker (WPT) and the LEVEL PRO ACTIVE levelling system.
The innovative MILL ASSIST machine control system ensures sustainability, efficient machine operation and high productivity. The Wirtgen Performance Tracker (WPT) information system enables clear and precise site documentation, which in turn allows fast and precise billing of the work performed after successful completion of a project. In combination with the intuitive operating concept, the state-of-the-art LEVEL PRO ACTIVE levelling system enables efficient single-handed operation and consistently precise milling results.
Automatically efficient high-quality milling thanks to MILL ASSIST
Of all the innovative technologies, MILL ASSIST is the one that really does make the operator’s work much easier. In automatic mode, the innovative machine control system sets the most favourable balance between performance and operating costs. This increases milling performance while simultaneously reducing pick and diesel fuel consumption – which, in turn, also reduces carbon emissions.
MILL ASSIST automatically regulates the engine speed on the basis of a variety of parameters and the selected working strategy and simultaneously provides a wide range of usable milling drum speeds for an enormous spectrum of applications. The low speed range enables significant reductions in fuel consumption and pick wear. The upper speed range enables the achievement of an optimal milling pattern, even in the case of higher area performance rates. The operator can additionally select one of three operating strategies for each milling job: “ECO”, “performance-optimised” or “milling pattern quality”. This makes it possible, for example, to preset the required milling pattern quality incrementally from coarse to very fine at the press of a button.
Thanks to the ability to quickly exchange the FCS milling drums for milling with different pick spacings and working widths, the W 100 F(i), W 120 F(i) and W 130 F(i) compact milling machines from Wirtgen can also be rapidly reconfigured on-site when milling parameters have to be changed.
