The major highlight for Wirtgen at Intermat 2018 was the world premiere of its W 150 CFi with its new 1800-mm milling drum assembly. The compact milling machine packs a punch with its immense engine power paired with the application-optimised machine transport weight. To perform milling operations as economically as possible, cold milling machines must be transported quickly from one site to the next – especially when the machines are as flexible in their range of applications as the W 150 CFi with its 298-kW engine.

WIRTGEN IntermatThe 1800-mm milling drum assembly gives customers the benefit of a wider range of applications while the cold milling machine hits the mark with increased productivity and area output.

When it comes to precise, cost-effective roadway paving and monolithic concrete profiles, slipform pavers from Wirtgen are the machines of choice. With the SP 64, industry professionals got to see an inset paver in the performance class with widths of 2 to 6 m which can pave thicknesses of up to 450 mm precisely.

In the field of cold recycling technology, Wirtgen not only presented its WR 240i wheeled recycler but also its ancillary equipment: the WLV 1 laboratory compactor, the WLB 10 S laboratory-scale foamed bitumen plant and the WLM 30 laboratory-scale twin-shaft compulsory mixer.

To determine the quality of the paving results in advance, extensive investigations of the entire road surfacing and a detailed suitability test of the paving mix are required before paving begins. The ancillary equipment was specifically designed for this purpose and allows a 1:1 simulation of the cold recycling process in the road construction laboratory. The numerous technical discussions between the visitors and Wirtgen's cold-recycling applications experts revealed just how strong the demand for this Wirtgen technology is.

The Wirtgen solutions were rounded off with an on-site presentation of soil stabilisation technologies in the form of the WS 250 tractor-towed stabiliser. Thanks to the milling drum assembly’s practical attachment system, tractors can be effortlessly converted into soil stabilizers using the WS 250. This combination makes such applications as the homogenization of non-uniform soil mixtures possible. Even heavy, coarse-grained or sandy substrates are reliably transformed by the tractor-towed stabilizers into soil with good paving and compacting properties.
