Asphalt and concrete pavements can be cost-effectively removed with cold milling machines. The range of applications extends from the complete removal of asphalt and concrete to the layer-by-layer removal and levelling of asphalt and concrete surfaces.
With WIRTGEN cold milling machines, it is possible to machine working widths from 1 ft 2 in up to 14 ft 5 in and working depths up to 1 ft 2 in in a single pass. In addition, a large number of different milling drums, such as ECO cutters or fine milling drums, ensure that machines can be used with a high degree of flexibility.
Cold recyclers are used to prepare asphalt pavement on site. In this process, the existing pavement is granulated with the milling and mixing rotor and prepared by adding precise amounts of bituminous binding agents, cement and water. The result is a homogeneous material that can be used to directly repave the surface.
Soil stabilisers use the milling and mixing rotor to mix pre-spread binding agents such as lime or cement into the existing, less stable soil and transform it into a high-quality material directly on site.
Offset pavers are used to produce monolithic concrete profiles such as protective concrete walls, kerb profiles, gutters or narrow paths.
Thanks to numerous options, such as for concrete feeding or slipforming, offset slipform pavers are extremely versatile.
Inset pavers cost-effectively produce concrete pavements, such as for motorways, arterial roads, runways or railway lines. In addition to single-layer concrete paving, bottom-layer and top-layer concrete can also be paved synchronously in two layers ‘wet on wet’.
Surface Miners can mine raw materials such as coal, gypsum, salt, phosphate, bauxite or lime in open-cast mines. They mine commodities selectively, ensuring a high quality and optimum exploitation of the deposit. Surface Miners are also used to cut routes or lower tunnel floors. Centrally positioned underneath the machine, the cutting drum has a customized design to match all customer requirements. The extracted material can be deposited behind the machine in windrows, sidecast via an integrated discharge conveyor or loaded directly onto transport vehicles.
