With more than 30 exhibits, including 10 world and North American premieres, as well as an interactive technology exhibition, the Wirtgen Group’s booth became a magnet for visitors at Conexpo-Con/Agg 2020. They were especially interested in the new large milling machines from Wirtgen.
Wirtgen mill assist: Star of the new generation of large milling machines
The high-performance W 220 Fi and W 250 Fi models, the flagships of the new generation of machines, particularly impressed the industry audience during their world premiere. Like all of the large milling machines in the new F series, they set standards when it comes to milling performance and machine efficiency, primarily thanks to the innovative mill assist machine control system. This is because mill assist helps the milling machine operator optimize machine performance and significantly reduce diesel, water and pick consumption as well as CO2 and noise emissions. Practical experience shows that users already use mill assist more than 90% of the time their machine is in operation, significantly cutting costs as a result.
Mass-produced innovation from the Wirtgen Group
The North American premieres of Vögele’s WITOS Paving Docu, Hamm’s HP 180i tired roller, and Kleemann’s MOBICAT MC 120 Zi PRO jaw crusher also underscored the group’s position as the innovation driver and technology leader in the road construction sector. The Wirtgen Group Technology Center, where visitors could learn about the specialized product brands’ application technologies in more detail, was also extremely popular.
Building the future together
To emphasize that it is a part of John Deere and highlight the synergies across the entire product range, at its trade show booth the Wirtgen Group exhibited a John Deere 824L wheel loader together with the MOBISCREEN MS 952 EVO mobile screening plant from Kleemann. At John Deere’s booth, trade show visitors could see a Kleemann MOBICONE MCO 11 PRO cone crusher in combination with a 300G LC excavator from John Deere.
