At ConExpo 2020, Joseph Vogele AG showcased its new software-based application for road construction. WITOS Paving Docu allows paving data and delivery notes to be recorded and automates the process of sending out job-site reports.
With its latest innovation, WITOS Paving Docu, the global market leader is complementing its two existing job-site solutions: RoadScan, the non-contacting temperature-measurement system with which the paving temperature can be monitored across the full pave width, and WITOS Paving Plus, the telematics solution for coordinating and actively optimizing all processes from the mixing plant to the paving process in real time.
Following its successful market launch, cold milling machine specialist Wirtgen is rounding out its new generation of large milling machines at the ConExpo-Con/AGG 2020. The W 250 Fi and W 220 Fi will make their world premiere at the show. The two W 210 Fi and W 207 Fi large milling machines as well as the W 380 CRi cold recycler, exhibited together as a recycling train, will make their North American debut.
Vögele has restructured its product range and is poised to stage several premieres: the Super 3000-3(i), the biggest paver in the company's product range, the Super 1000(i) and 1003(i) compact pavers, the SB 300 and SB 350 fixed-width screeds, and the new functions of the WITOS paving process-management solution.
They are bright green and integrate many benefits as standard that will make work easier for users: the latest generation of sensors for grade and slope control from Vögele. Whether on their own or in combination with the new Big MultiPlex Ski, they deliver optimal results in asphalt paving.

The 8-ft. (2.4 m) paver segment is of central importance to many road construction companies, because with these machines they can cover a wide range of applications, from small municipal job sites to highway construction and rehabilitation. With their strong performance and a uniquely compact design, the Super 1700-3i and Super 1703-3i pavers put Germany-based Joseph Vögele AG at the forefront of technology in this field.
