Conexpo-Con/Agg 2020: New Large Milling Machines the Highlight of the Wirtgen Group’s Solutions
More than 30 exhibits, including 10 world and North American premieres and Wirtgen’s new large milling machines leading the pack – this year, the Wirtgen Group is exhibiting outdoors (Silver Lot 1) at booth S 5419.
A SUPER 1303-3i repaved the surface course on a 3.1 m-wide tree-lined route at a thickness of 3 cm. The new pavement of sand-coloured asphalt blends harmoniously into the landscape. The VÖGELE wheeled paver in the Compact Class paved the coloured asphalt with a crown of +2.5%.
With a potentially record-breaking pave width of up to 18m, the new SUPER 3000-3(i) can pave the surface course of a four-lane motorway carriageway without joints. As a representative of the Premium Line, the large paver additionally incorporates all the features of the latest "Dash 3" generation. Other highlights include the innovative material transport and the new hydraulic tamper-stroke adjustment.
The SUPER 1000(i) and the SUPER 1003(i) represent the global market leader's recently introduced Classic Line. Equipped with the ErgoBasic operating concept, the two compact pavers boast simple handling and excellent value for money.
VÖGELE present smart solution for digital job-site documentation
WITOS Paving Docu allows paving data and delivery notes to be recorded and automates the sending of job site reports. It is a practical, easy-to-use solution for small and medium-sized construction projects.
Why is cold milling such an important part of the rehabilitation process? The condition of the milled surface has a major impact on the quality of the new surface layers, their functional properties, and the cost-effectiveness and efficiency of further construction work.
Construction Site 4.0 – the working environment of the future
At HAMM, the developers are thinking not only about the next machine generation; they are also focussed on the effects that current megatrends will have on road building in general and on compaction in particular.
Permeable to Water and with an Anti-capillary Effect
What do you see as the core issues in the construction of frost blankets? A frost blanket made from unbound mineral aggregate represents the first base course of the superstructure at the subgrade level.
The SUPER 1600 L helps customers and users to complete projects cost-efficiently while delivering high quality. This tracked paver from VÖGELE proved it could do just that on a job rehabilitating National Highway 104 in Yuhang District – and the road didn’t have to be blocked off even once.
In 2017, HAMM produced more than 10,000 rollers in a single year for the first time. To ensure that the demand for HAMM rollers can also be satisfied sufficiently in future, the parent plant was massively expanded.
The perfect solution for all customers, users and sales employees who are often on the road. HAMM Delivery Program/HAMM Product Range offers mobile access to the HAMM product portfolio, with all relevant information about the respective machines.
Two SUPER 1880 L pavers with Heavy-Duty kits made a good job of paving an abrasive cement-treated base course mix, creating the ideal conditions for ensuring that National Highway 107 in Xuchang stands up to heavy traffic for a long time to come.
Swiss company Recytec continues investing in Kleemann plants
Recytec from Switzerland specialises in the processing of waste materials and materials in the recyclable mineral chain. Recytec has now extended its vehicle fleet and is participating in work on the tunnel construction project on the A1.
At Excon 2017, Wirtgen will be presenting unveiling the latest highlight in its large milling machine range in India: the new W 195. Developed by experienced Wirtgen engineers, the W 195 marks the launch of a new performance class on the Indian market.
During a construction job in South Africa, it was scientifically proven by the University of Twente that the MT 3000-2 Offset PowerFeeder improves paving quality – among other things, using RoadScan, the innovative temperature measurement system from VÖGELE.
Autonomous rollers: (R)evolution in asphalt construction
In the field of compaction technology, HAMM AG has always been a company that sets trends and is quick to adopt new technologies in order to continually improve its rollers. Now, the technology-focused company HAMM is once again setting new standards, this time in the development of self-driving compaction machines.
2 in 1: Rock crushing and compaction with HAMM's VC compactors
For bauma 2016 in Munich, HAMM is bringing along its VC compactors, which are now ready for series production. These compactors with a vibration crusher drum carry out two tasks simultaneously and to the highest quality standards.
In 2001, conventional “drilling and blasting” was regarded as the most important extraction method in the West African country. Today, however, bauxite mining is carried out exclusively using Wirtgen’s surface miners, which are more cost-effective, safer, and more environmentally friendly.
Autostrada A1 – Europe's largest construction project
To build the A1 motorway in Poland as efficiently as possible, machines from the Wirtgen Group were almost the only equipment used during paving and compaction, including several HAMM compactors and tandem rollers.
