Advanced Wirtgen Group Technologies for Pavement Construction, Preservation Featured at World of Asphalt 2019
Advanced technologies from Wirtgen Group for bituminous pavement construction, preservation and recycling will be the key draw to Wirtgen's stand No. 33077 at World of Asphalt 2019 in Indianapolis Feb. 12-14. There, products from Wirtgen, Vögele, Hamm and Kleemann will underscore how Wirtgen technologies enhance productivity and profitability for road contractors and government agencies.
The Wirtgen W 150 CFi with new 1,800 mm milling drum assembly will be exhibited and will be paired with a display on cutting tool technology, featuring cutting drum and new PCD cutting tools from Wirtgen. With Wirtgen benefits such as the Level Pro Plus leveling system, and Flexible Cutter System (FCS), the W 150 CF/ W 150 CFi provides high milling performance in an easily transportable package. While its standard drum width is 1,500 mm, as of 2018 it now can be fitted with a 1,800 mm drum, making it ideal for surface course rehabilitation on medium to large job sites.
New PCD milling tools on display are particularly suitable for surface layer rehabilitation thanks to their up-to-date tool geometry and materials. An exceptionally long service life can be achieved thanks to the highly wear-resistant tool tip made of polycrystalline diamond.
Spray jet technology for ultrathin bonded overlays -- and now for placing bond coats for standard asphalt paving -- will be available via the SUPER 1800-3i SprayJet paver from Vögele. Also displayed will be the popular 10-ft. tracked SUPER 2000-3i and tracked SUPER 700-3i utility paver.
Hamm asphalt rollers of all sizes on display will include the innovative DV+90i VV-S pivot steered roller with split vibration drum for perfect compaction of tight radii; the HD+ 90i VO featuring vibration and oscillation in two drums in a single unit; and two HD CompactLine rollers, the HD 14i VO featuring vibration and oscillation, and the HD 12i VV with vibration in both drums.
Finally, Kleemann's easily transported, track-mounted MOBIREX MR 130 Zi EVO2 mobile impact crusher will be displayed. This mobile impact crusher can be used for natural stone processing, but is especially suited for processing reclaimed asphalt pavement (RAP) and recycled concrete aggregate (RCA) in asphalt plants.
