Over 40 products – many of them new to North America – were presented by Wirtgen Group at Conexpo-Con/AGG 2017 in Las Vegas.

Wirtgen Group exhibited innovative machines and technologies for road construction, road rehabilitation, mining and processing of minerals and mineral raw materials, as well as recycling of construction materials.

Wirtgen: Highlights and U.S. Debuts

No fewer than six cold milling machines, a slipform paver and a texture curing will be making their U.S. debuts at Conexpo-Con/AGG 2017.

For powerful and economical road rehabilitation, Wirtgen presented the new high-performance cold milling machines W250i and W220i, the W150 CFi and W120 CFi – two models of the latest compact-milling machine generation – as well as the W60Ri and W35Ri from the latest small-milling machine generation.

The SP64i slipform paver was also presented for the first time. It joins the models SP61i and SP62i in forming the new SP60 series that ultimately will replace the globally successful SP500. The SP60 series combines the wide-ranging applications of the SP500 with the state-of-the-art technologies of the next largest series, the SP90. As the second pioneering solution for high-quality concrete paving, the texture curing machine TCM180i rounded off the range of Wirtgen's newly unveiled products in Las Vegas.

Vögele: A Whole Series of Innovations

Conexpo-Con/AGG delegates experienced the innovative technologies of Vögele's asphalt pavers and screeds. The Mini Class was represented by the SUPER 700-3i. The new 10 ft. SUPER 2000-3i and SUPER 2003-3i pavers were also on display. Both Highway Class machines were designed specifically for paving highways and for applications on large industrial areas. In addition to this, the SUPER 1800-3i SprayJet spray paver, the SUPER 2100-3i and the Vögele PowerFeeder MT 3000-2i Offset were also exhibited.

The brand-new 8-ft. SUPER 1700-3i and SUPER 1703-3i are particularly noteworthy and will be a definite highlight of the Vögele exhibits. These two Universal Class pavers celebrated their world premiere at ConExpo-Con/AGG 2017!

The SUPER 1700-3i tracked paver and the SUPER 1703-3i wheeled paver are cutting-edge machines suitable for a wide variety of applications. Typical jobs are secondary roads and highways, but due to their compact design, they are ideal for commercial and municipal applications as well.

Hamm: New Models and an Inventive Operating Concept for Asphalt and Soil Compactors

The world market leader for asphalt and soil compactors brought a number of innovations to Las Vegas, including the new tandem rollers of the HD+ Series, and the super-compact HD CompactLine.

The tandem rollers of the DV+ Series with unique pivot steering were introduced to the North American market at Conexpo-Con/AGG. These new rollers offer precise compaction, even in very confined conditions.

Hamm has extended the successful H Series soil compactor range with new models in the class up to 84 inches. With their wide variety of equipment options, they can be customized for machine leasing as well as for earthworks contractors. Hamm also will be presenting a new pneumatic rubber-tired roller whose weight is extremely easy to ballast.

The new models of the DV+ and HD+ tandem roller series – as well as the H Series soil compactors – make use of the innovative Easy Drive operating concept. Its clear, ergonomically optimized structure features a small number of language-neutral controls. All rollers are operated in the same way, with modifications to suit the specific functions of the individual series. By these means, Hamm creates ideal conditions for simple, safe and ergonomically optimized operation.

Kleemann: Innovative Crushers for a Wide Range of Applications

Kleemann will be presenting its latest development for efficient use in quarries: the MOBICONE MCO 11 PRO mobile cone crusher. The robust plant is equipped with a low-consumption diesel-electric drive that permits operation with an external power supply. The integrated Continuous Feed System (CFS) guarantees optimum crusher utilization so that up to 470 tons of material can be processed per hour.

Three representatives of the successful EVO series will also be showcased: the MOBICONE MCO 9 Si EVO mobile cone crusher, the MOBIREX MR 130 Zi EVO2 mobile impact crusher and the MOBICAT MC 110 Zi EVO mobile jaw crusher.

These models boast compact dimensions, are easy to transport and can be used flexibly for both natural stone and recycling applications. Equipped with a diesel-electric drive, the crushing plants run economically and efficiently. At the same time they are very powerful and ensure a high-quality end product. The simple operating concept of the EVO units supports intuitive control and offers excellent interlinking options.
