Bauma China 2018: Wirtgen Group Showcasing More Than a Dozen Innovations
With around 50 exhibits, including 13 premieres for the Chinese market, the Wirtgen Group will present innovative technologies and premium products at Bauma China 2018. The application-oriented solutions for earthworks, road construction, airport construction, and for processing rock and recycled material help customers complete projects economically and with outstanding quality.
Innovations at the Booth
Wirtgen has rounded out its new large milling machine series for the Asian market with the trade show premieres of the W 195 and W 205. In addition, the third and most powerful machine in the series, the W 215, will be on display in Shanghai. The SP 64 slipform paver is another Wirtgen premiere for China. The inset paver with a maximum paving width of 7.5 m and a maximum paving thickness of 450 mm guarantees cost-effective and high-precision paving.
Vögele will be unveiling a special premiere: the SUPER 1600 L, a rehabilitation pro for small to large construction projects. In addition, Vögele will be exhibiting the right machine for every job, from the small SUPER 700-3 to the large SUPER 2100-3 L. Highlights include the pavers from the Compact Class and the tried-and-tested SUPER 1880 L and SUPER 1880-3 L pavers from the Universal Class. Vögele will also be presenting the Big MultiPlex Ski sensor system, which has been specially designed to meet the specific demands in China and significantly increases quality and longitudinal evenness.
The HD 30/35 series of compact rollers from Hamm, which are manufactured locally in China, are also brand new. They will be exhibited in Shanghai together with other HD CompactLine tandem rollers from Hamm. The tandem rollers from the 9 t class, the HD+ 90 VO with oscillation, and the HD+ 90 VT combination roller are also new to the Chinese market. For earthworks, Hamm is presenting the new 325 compactor with 25 t operating weight.
From Kleemann, both the MC 120 Z PRO track-mounted jaw crusher and MCO 11 PRO cone crusher will be on display at bauma China for the first time. When it comes to ruggedness and efficiency, the two PRO crushers are perfectly designed to meet the demands of quarry work. Kleemann will also be exhibiting the MS 953 EVO mobile screening plant as a representative of the EVO product line, which is primarily known for its versatility and excellent transport properties.
Local Production According to German Quality Standards
The Wirtgen Group has been manufacturing in China for China according to German quality standards since 2004, and has done so in a completely new facility in Langfang – one of the most state-of-the-art of its kind – since 2015. In addition to the construction equipment manufactured at the German brand headquarters, some of the innovations in cold milling machines, pavers, and compactors being exhibited at bauma China were also manufactured in Langfang. Longevity, cost-effectiveness, ease-of-use, and low operating and maintenance costs are what make the local models stand out.
With eight of its own locations, two new service centers, and a dealer network of 35 partners, Wirtgen China has a close-knit and efficient sales and service network that now covers almost all of the 22 Chinese provinces. As a result, the Wirtgen Group subsidiary in China is always close to the customer and can offer solutions from a single source.
Recognizing Needs and Creating Solutions
“Infrastructure expansion in China is progressing at a remarkable pace. Our customers can participate in the large number of earthworks, road construction, airport construction, and recycling projects throughout the country, and our innovative technologies from Wirtgen, Vögele, Hamm, and Kleemann ensure that the projects can be completed easily and cost-effectively,” explained Ulrich Reichert, CEO of Wirtgen China.
