Intermat 2012: Wirtgen Group presents world firsts in the fields of road and mineral technologies
Showcasing 31 construction machines on an exhibition area some 2,000 m2 large, the Wirtgen Group is demonstrating its innovative capacity in the fields of road and mineral technologies. The strong brands Wirtgen, Vögele, Hamm and Kleemann are presenting highlights from their various technology segments. As usual, the Group's tailored solutions have been developed to cater to customer requirements.
The Wirtgen Group's value proposition is a recurring theme throughout the history of the company. Right from the early days, the customer has always been at the focus of the company's thoughts and actions, and at Wirtgen, this goes hand in hand with a sheer passion for road construction and the motivation to constantly perfect construction technologies. For over 50 years, the words "close to our customers" have inspired the Wirtgen Group to continually develop innovative solutions for the customer and to truly live up to its pledge.
Wirtgen Group innovations make their debut
From the very outset, each brand in the Wirtgen Group has had a decisive impact on the technological advance of the machines and on the further development of processes in the respective core segments – and this includes improvements in economic efficiency and environmental compatibility. This is also reflected in the exhibits being presented in Paris. The Wirtgen Group is presenting 31 exhibits from a total of ten product segments, spearheaded by four world premieres: the Wirtgen cold recycler and soil stabilizer WR 240i, the Vögele SUPER 2100-3i paver, the first of the new "dash 3 generation", Hamm's H20i compactor and Kleemann's MR 110 ZS mobile impact crusher from the EVO generation.
The new products not only boast innovative features, but have also been designed with an eye to the needs and requirements of customers in the field. Wirtgen Group solutions – "close to our customers".
The ultimate in milling and stabilizing: The Wirtgen recycler and soil stabilizer WR 240i
The brand new WR 240i is without a doubt the true star among the Wirtgen machines showcased. With its large, ergonomically designed, glazed and laterally displaceable cab, it ensures an optimized all-round view and a perfect view of the milled edge. The machine output has been boosted by powerful motorization while mixing performance has also been further enhanced – two benefits which ensure perfect operation, even on difficult terrain.
"Dash 3": the new generation of Vögele pavers
In the road paver domain, the spotlight is now on the new "dash 3" generation, which is to be represented in Paris by the Vögele SUPER 2100-3i. The modern Cummins 6-cylinder engine ensures a high performance and a wide range of applications. Other striking features include the optimizations to the EcoPlus package and the ErgoPlus operating system as well as additional convenience functions and the modern design.
H-series from Hamm – a pioneer in cutting-edge technologies
The ultimate in rolling and compacting – that's Hamm. This year, the focus is on the new H-series. The H-models are the first compactors in their class to boast a sustainable Tier 4i engine. The H 20i with an operating weight of 20 t is this year's highlight. The modern earthworks rollers are driven by a 160-kW 6-cylinder diesel engine with soot particle filter.
The "EVO series" from Kleemann – exceptionally economical
Kleemann has optimized the material flow concept of its equipment with the new EVO-generation. For instance, the system widths have been extended to boost output, reduce wear and ensure top performances in terms of consumption per tonne of crushed material. The highlight among Kleemann's exhibits is the MR 130 ZS EVO mobile impact crusher from the new Mobirex EVO series.
A unique service range
Along with customer-centric product solutions, the Wirtgen Group also offers a premium customer service in keeping with its pledge "close to our customers". Specialized experts in the German headquarters as well as the 55 Group-owned sales and service companies worldwide continually guarantee fast and direct sales support and excellent technical support whenever service is required.
