Wirtgen Group to present premium road and mineral technology solutions at bauma Conexpo Africa 2018

On an area extending over more than 600 m², the Group will be showcasing a representative cross-section of its application-oriented products for the African market on the outdoor grounds (exhibition area T3.115) of bauma Conexpo Africa.

The Wirtgen Group offers integral one-stop solutions for road construction – from crushing rock and stone to asphalt production to the paving, compaction and rehabilitation of all manner of pavement structures.

Integrated solutions for road construction

In Johannesburg, the Wirtgen Group product brands Wirtgen, Vögele, Hamm, Kleemann, Benninghoven and Ciber will be focusing on innovative machines and technologies. Covering such fields as earthwork, road construction and road rehabilitation, along with the extraction and processing of minerals and mineral raw materials, plus the recycling of construction materials, the Group offers fit-for-purpose solutions for the entire road construction cycle – and all from a single source.

A reliable partner on the African market

Offering pioneering solutions, the Wirtgen Group has been operating on the African market in the fields of road construction and mining for many years now. With its well-developed service network, the local Wirtgen Group sales and service company, Wirtgen South Africa, not only provides innovative machines but also guarantees short routes to local contacts and fast, reliable response times – for instance, when providing technical support right on the job site, in quarries or in mines. The ingenious logistics concept ensures the constant availability of original spare parts. What's more, Wirtgen Group experts can support customers at any time with on-site applications advice tailored to their needs. The Group is hence a reliable partner to its customers on the African continent, too – on job sites, in mines or in quarries.

Plant with a 3-t mixer, a mixing capacity of up to 240 t/h and a mixed material storage silo of 110 t.

Economical material processing with Kleemann crushers

This exceptional service is increasingly available to customers in the business of processing natural stone and recycling materials into classified final grain sizes These products are being used as standardized aggregates for concrete or for asphalt base, binder and surface courses in the road and construction sectors. Mobile crushing and screening plants from Kleemann demonstrate their clear edge over stationary processing plants in this domain, offering a wide range of flexible applications in quarries, mines and on construction sites, as well as in the field of recycling.

The Inova 2000 introduces five highlights which include high production capacity, efficiency in fuel consumption, maximum performance in special mixes, ease of operation and optimized maintenance.

Flexible asphalt production: From mobile to stationary

A thermal mixing process is needed to convert mineral aggregate and added bitumen into asphalt for road construction. This can only be done with an asphalt mixing plant. The Wirtgen Group has market-driven solutions to hand in this field, too. For instance, the new Ciber asphalt plant Inova 2000 is ideal for continuous asphalt production. The ultra-mobile plant can be dismantled into two separate units for transport, making this a highly flexible piece of equipment. The plants can achieve capacities of 100-200 t/h.

Following the launch of Benninghoven asphalt mixing plants on the African market, the Group now additionally offers transportable and stationary solutions for discontinuous production, i.e. batch mixing. The ECO asphalt mixing plants with capacities of 100-320 t/h unite cutting-edge, innovative Benninghoven technologies with a high production standard, all in compact container dimensions. They can be operated as stationary plants, but can handle fast location changes with ease thanks to their quick and simple transport features.
