MILL ASSIST - Reliable assistant
To operate the machine at the optimum operating point, he and his colleagues previously had to set a large number of machine parameters, such as the diesel engine and milling drum speed, the milling speed or the quantity of water required to cool the cutting tools, relying only on their intuition and experience. This was a highly challenging task considering the complexity involved.
Varying conditions, such as different degrees of pavement material hardness, also required frequent manual adjustments.
This is where Mill Assist comes in. It continuously processes more than 60 signals to simulate many different setting variations and combinations in real time using complex algorithms and formulas.
In automatic mode, Mill Assist always strikes the optimum balance between milling performance and operating costs. This not only improves machine performance, but also reduces diesel, water and cutting tool consumption as well as CO2 emissions.
Massimo Valerio was also immediately struck by the “lower noise emissions and vibrations when milling 10, 15 or even 18cm, as we are doing here” – Milling 4.0 on the A31.
