Hillhead 2016: Wirtgen Group showcases solutions for the entire process chain in road construction
Wirtgen: Leading small and compact milling machines from the global market leader
Wirtgen is showcasing two machines from its market-leading road repair fleet, presenting models from its small and compact milling machine lines. Tailored to the differing requirements of customers, the cold milling machines feature a winning combination of enormous flexibility in application and high cost efficiency. This can be seen in the compact milling machine W 100 CFi, for instance, which unites the maneuverability of small machines with the productivity of larger versions for maximum flexibility on job sites. The W 35 Ri small milling machine will also be on show. The smallest of Wirtgen's cold milling machines performs superbly when cutting out small areas for partial roadway rehabilitations, milling around manhole covers or applying or removing road markings.
Vögele: Innovative solutions for paving asphalt and materials for roadbase construction
Vögele is presenting the next stage in road construction: the Super 1303-3i and the Super 800-3i. Highly advanced, user-friendly technology is the basis for the innovative, economical and environmentally friendly asphalt paver: the Vögele EcoPlus package, for instance, slashes fuel consumption as well as noise emissions. A large number of functional and ergonomic features have been added to the ErgoPlus operating system, creating the ErgoPlus 3 version for the "Dash 3" generation. The AutoSet Plus and PaveDock Assistant functions also make working with the paver easier.
Hamm: Premium technology for earth and asphalt compaction
Hamm is presenting four rollers at this year's Hillhead, including the H7i from the H CompactLine. A breeze to operate with its ergonomically optimized workstation, this exceedingly compact model is particularly suitable for building contractors and machine hire companies. When compacting, it excels with its outstanding climbing ability, excellent operational characteristics and ample ground clearance. Hamm's HD CompactLine makes it the global market leader in the compact tandem roller segment. Two representatives of the series in the weight class up to 4.5 t will be presented on site. The HD 8 VV and the HD 12 VV owe their appeal to their combination of a 3-point swivel joint for optimum driving comfort and unbeatable all-round visibility thanks to their slim-line front end. Meanwhile, the HD+ 80i VV from the HD+ series of articulated tandem rollers promises power for the medium class.
Kleemann: Outstanding equipment for natural stone processing and recycling
The Göppingen-based specialist for mobile crushers and screens is exhibiting two of its machines. One is the MC 100 R, the smallest jaw crusher in the MOBICAT model range, the design of which is closely modeled on the MC 110 R, a plant to which it also bears a strong outward resemblance. It, too, for instance, comes with the familiar diesel-direct-electric drive concept. With the smaller overall system dimensions and a weight of approx. 30 t, the MC 100 R is even easier to transport. Nevertheless, it still manages feed capacities of up to 200 t/h and can be optimally configured with options to meet the requirements of contractor customers. Another highlight is the MR 110 Z EVO 2 mobile impact crusher. The universally adaptable plant is suitable for processing blasted natural stone, processing of RAP, and demolition rubble of mineral origin, producing a first-class final product quality. Despite its comparatively small crusher inlet size of 1,100 x 800 mm, it achieves throughput rates that have up to now only been achievable with considerably larger systems. As a result, maximum feed capacities of up to 350 t/h can be easily attained.
Benninghoven: The right asphalt mixing plant for every material
Hillhead marks the first time all five Wirtgen Group product brands have appeared together in the UK. Benninghoven, the youngest member of the family, is contributing a transportable asphalt mixing plant. Based in Mulheim, Germany, the specialist manufacturer of asphalt mixing plants and their components is presenting the TBA3000, a transportable asphalt mixing plant with a mixing capacity of 240t/h.
The TBA comes in a modular design in sizes that allow easy transport by truck or rail. Since every section is cabled and piped ready for operation, assembly is simple, effortless and above all quick. The plant can also be erected without the need for fixed foundations. Generously dimensioned access platforms to all sections ensure optimum conditions for inspection and servicing work.
