CONNECTED MILLING: Systematically Making Information Available
An efficient flow of information is the key to making processes easier, faster, and more cost-effective. Wirtgen refers to this as CONNECTED MILLING. This term describes the direct flow of information between the machine, operator, service workshop, and scheduling office. For this purpose, Wirtgen uses the infrastructure of the Wirtgen Group’s existing telematics solution WITOS.
Reliable Documentation of Performance and Consumption Data
The Wirtgen PERFORMANCE TRACKER uses a laser scanner to measure the cross-sectional profile to be milled. Surface milling performance and milling volume are then precisely measured using GPS positioning and other sensors. The machine operator can continuously track the most important information in real time on the control panel’s display. After completing the milling work, a report with all of the relevant performance and consumption data is generated automatically in Excel and PDF format and sent to the machine operator by e-mail.
