Milling drums for cold milling machines

Maximum versatility

To make optimum use of the machine’s potential, WIRTGEN offer a variety of different milling drum types which differ in their tool spacing and the maximum possible milling depth, which are determined by the application.

The milling drum must fulfil three main tasks:

  • Cutting and breaking out of material particles from the compound.
  • Conveying: Transport of the separated material particles to the area of the ejector.
  • Ejection of the removed material particles onto the loading conveyor.

Easy exchange of milling drums in record time

Milling drums are now exchanged even morequickly thanks to the new generation of MCS milling drums. A single central bolt needs to be loosened, which can be performed by the milling drum turning device at the mere push of a button. All that remains to be done for the operator is to pull out the milling drum. The side door on the right is opened quickly and effortlessly as it features a hydraulic cylinder drive. The simplified process offers numerous advantages: the rapid exchange of application-specific milling drums with different tool spacings increases machine productivity. The short-term exchange and use of the milling drum best suited to the job to be performed reduces wear costs. In addition, maximum flexibility is guaranteed to cater to the ever-changing requirements in day-to-day business.

Quick exchange of milling drums using FCS

The optional Flexible Cutter System, abbreviated as FCS, allows operators to change milling drums quickly and easily to use different working widths, line spacings or milling profiles. Highly versatile, the FCS opens up a whole variety of cold milling machine usage options to ensure maximum cost-effectiveness.

  • Exchanging FCS milling drums of different widths, with different tool spacings and milling profiles (example: small milling machines)
  • Exchanging FCS Light milling drums of identical width but with different tool spacings and milling profiles (example: large milling machines)

Assembly kit for MCS Basic milling drums

FCS Light milling drums can easily be mounted in the MCS Basic milling drum housing. Using the MCS Basic assembly kit, your milling drums will be compatible with the F series large milling machines in no time at all.
