Scotplant 2014: Wirtgen Limited showcases innovations in the fields of Road und Mineral Technologies – seven exhibits make their debut in the UK
Wirtgen Limited, a Wirtgen Group sales and service company, is presenting a cross-section of innovative solutions for road construction, road repair and the processing of natural stone and recycled materials at Scotplant 2014 with no less than 12 exhibits. The construction equipment exhibition in Ingliston, Edinburgh, will mark the UK debut of the Wirtgen W 50 DCi cold milling machine, Vögele SUPER 1803-3i and SUPER 1303-3i road pavers, Hamm H 13i vibratory compactor and HD+ 80i VV and HD 13 VO tandem rollers, as well as the Kleemann Mobicat MC110 Z EVO jaw crusher.
Wirtgen: W 50 DCi and W 100 Fi – A cost efficient and high performance duo
The is the all-rounder in the half-metre class and excels thanks to advanced technology and a robust design combined with low operating costs. The primary fields of application are tie-in jobs, removing pavement strips, cutting joints, precision milling around manhole covers and milling concrete to a depth of 210 mm. A powerful cold milling machine in the one-metre class, the W 100 Fi is used for rehabilitating large surfaces or for removing asphalt layers at full depth. The milled material is loaded via the two-stage, pivoting front-loading conveyor. Both models are equipped with eco-friendly drive systems that ensure significantly reduced emission levels. The W 50 DCi and W 100 Fi are also distinguished by intelligent fully automated functions and superior ergonomic features.
Vögele: SUPER 1803-3i and SUPER 1303-3i – The innovative, eco-friendly and cost efficient road pavers in the new "Dash 3" generation
The wheeled paver perfectly combines robust and reliable material management with a large maximum pave width of 8 m and extremely high manoeuvrability. Development of this Universal Class road paver focussed to a considerable degree on the ecological, economic and ergonomic aspects. For instance, the Vögele EcoPlus low emissions package significantly reduces fuel consumption and noise emissions. The familiar ErgoPlus operating system has been upgraded to ErgoPlus 3 for the "Dash 3" generation, incorporating a host of additional ergonomic and functional features. The paver operator's console now sports a particularly large colour display that provides brilliant readability even in poor light conditions. Additionally, the AutoSet Plus and PaveDock Assistant functions make working with the paver even easier than ever. Minor municipal roads, service roads, combined foot and cycle paths or small to medium-sized areas – these are ideal jobs for the wheeled paver. This highly advanced wheeled paver features an extremely compact design and superb manoeuvrability. It has a basic width of 1.8 m and an overall length of just 4.95 m. This makes the Compact Class asphalt paver the ideal choice for cramped job site conditions.
Hamm: H 13i, HD+ 80i and HD 13 VO for improved compaction quality
Hamm is taking plenty of new models for earthwork and road construction to Scotplant, relying without exception on eco-friendly and sustainable engine technology. One brand new product is the , vibratory compactor, a true all-rounder for earthworks with an operating weight of 13 t.
This compactor stands out through extraordinary manoeuvrability, its ability to handle steep slope angles and ease of operation. The 8-t tandem roller is also making its UK debut at Scotplant. This machine compacts economically, quickly creates surfaces with the utmost surface accuracy and allows clean edge processing. The operator has an extra-large cab that enables him to concentrate on the work at hand for longer periods. The (4 t / 1.30 m), one of four new articulated tandem rollers with oscillation and vibration from Hamm's HD CompactLine, is a pioneering development. These compact rollers now mean companies can also perform dynamic compaction on small, narrow job sites, resulting in noticeable improvements in efficiency and quality.
Kleemann: brand new mobile jaw crusher Mobicat MC 110 EVO
After bauma 2013, the new mobile jaw crusher was successfully launched in many European countries. And the concept was spot on: performance, consumption, flexibility and availability, i.e. everything the customer expects in this segment, are all provided to the max by the MC 110 EVO. Numerous systems are already giving satisfaction to UK customers. These customers especially value the host of innovations, such as the direct drive with electric drives for the feeder, pre-screen and conveyors, the CFS (Continuous Feed System) feed control system, the effective pre-screening and the new crushing unit with hoisted articulated crusher jaw. The MC 110 EVO is being presented on UK soil for the first time at Scotplant.
