Wirtgen Limited at Hillhead 2012: 11 exhibits from the road and mineral technologies sector
Presenting 11 exhibits, the Wirtgen Group sales and service company Wirtgen Limited will be showcasing an impressive range of products for road construction and mineral processing. The highlight in the 576-m² exhibition area will be the innovative Cold Milling Machines W 250 and W 100 Fi from Wirtgen and the HD 90+ VV from Hamm (Q1).
The W 250 from Wirtgen – world class in performance and productivity
The launch of the W 250 marks the advent of an absolutely high-performance cold milling machine with a maximum power rating of 731 kW/994 PS. The large milling machine can remove up to 1,200 tonnes of asphalt per hour, equating to a theoretical loading capacity of 60 trucks per hour. And the W 250 also offers maximum flexibility in this respect: Wirtgen's innovative Dual Engine Concept allows milling with one engine at 455 kW/618 PS or milling with two engines at a more powerful 731 kW/994 PS. Six different milling widths ranging from 2.20 m to 4.40 m are available. The W 250 is also equipped with the intelligent Wirtgen machine management system WIDRIVE, which not only eases the workload of the operator, but also guarantees fuel efficient and environmentally compatible milling.
W 100 Fi – High-performance front loader
The Wirtgen W 100 Fi is a multifunctional and environmentally-friendly machine. Powered by a cutting-edge engine, the powerful cold milling machine in the 1-m class boasts emissions values which even comply with the stringent EU Stage 3b / US Tier 4i emissions standards. What's more, the WIDRIVE machine management system ensures that the W 100 Fi always operates within the most advantageous engine speed range, making for correspondingly low noise and vibration emissions.
Vögele wheeled and tracked pavers – Compact and manoeuvrable
Joseph Vögele AG will be exhibiting as many as three wheeled and tracked pavers from the successful SUPER series. Thanks to its compact dimensions and variable pave width, the track-mounted SUPER 800 is the ideal small paver for cycle paths and footpaths or for smaller construction and rehabilitation measures. The SUPER 1303-2 wheeled paver is an impressive machine thanks to its excellent manoeuvrability. The most powerful of Vögele's wheeled pavers, the SUPER 1803-2, offers both robust and reliable material management. With a large pave width of up to 8 m and the easy-to-use operating concept ErgoPlus, it is one of Vögele's most popular models.
Hamm rollers – Premium technology for road construction and earthworks
Presenting the HD 10 VV, HD 12 VV and HD 13 VT with chip spreader, Hamm will be showcasing the tandem rollers from the CompactLine featuring perfect visibility thanks to the slimline front end, a low machine height and excellent handling. The inner workings of the series have been upgraded: the machines are now driven by exceptionally quiet yet powerful Kubota engines. The optional chip spreader is a new addition to the CompactLine. The line spreader is switched on and off from the operator's seat and the operator has infinitely variable control of the spread quantity. The highlight is a specially developed deflection grid in the spreader, which allows Hamm to achieve an extremely homogeneous spread pattern – a clear quality advantage. With this option, the compact rollers are ideally equipped, for instance, for repair work on motorways and other heavily frequented roads.
The tandem rollers in the HD+ series garnered the "iF Gold award 2010", also known as the "design Oscar". The HD+ 90 VV will representing the series in Derbyshire. The 3412 HT will also be on show in the exhibition area. The vibratory roller with Hammtronic combines modern technology with an appealing design and outstanding performance.
Kleemann jaw crushers – Powerful and reliable
The MOBICAT MC 110 Z is one of the Kleemann mobile jaw crushers which boast an exceptionally broad range of applications. With its wide inlet opening, the MC 110 Z combines the advantages of a professional stone-crushing plant with those of a recycling crusher. The double-deck pre-screen can be equipped with different meshes, maximizing flexibility so that the material can either bypass the crusher or be stockpiled directly.
