Innovations in cutting technology pay off
Everyday practical experience is used in the ongoing development of the surface miners – especially in cutting technology, one of WIRTGEN’s core competencies. With the HT15 quick-change toolholder system, the innovation leader has developed a unique device which simplifies the process of changing toolholders and shortens it by 60 percent. Together with the new WPI (WIRTGEN Pick Inspection) tool wear detection system, which ensures maximum use of the cutting tool capacity, the latest innovations have led to significant production increases at FMG.
Expanding proven service structures with new concepts
Especially in mining, where the machines are in use every day, 24 hours a day, machine availability is a central factor for success. In addition to surface mining technology, Wirtgen also presents itself as a reliable partner with a comprehensive service offering. The service products are the result of an intensive collaboration between the main WIRTGEN plant in Germany and its subsidiary WIRTGEN Australia in Perth. The regular communication with and physical proximity to the customer ensure fast reaction times. New demands, process changes or machine developments can thus be quickly implemented – both directly on site in the mine and in the plant.
