bauma 2019 will feature a world premiere: Wirtgen is showcasing two models from its new generation of large milling machines in Munich. The focus of these machines' innovative design with mill assist includes:

  • Simplifying the operator's job
  • Maximizing machine performance
  • Optimizing operating costs
  • Increasing the quality of the milled surface
  • Protecting the environment.

The proprietary intelligent control technology developed by Wirtgen, which autonomously optimizes the machine's parameters and adapts them to changing job site situations, sets new standards in milling technology.

At the Wirtgen Group's stand FS.1011, visitors to the trade show will have the opportunity to experience these machine features for themselves and have them explained in detail. Wirtgen specialists will be on hand to answer any and all questions about the new generation of cold milling machines.

The machines will go on sale on April 8, 2019 – the first day of bauma – and will initially be available in Europe.

Nominated for the bauma Innovation Award

The new cold milling machine from Wirtgen with mill assist has been nominated for the bauma Innovation Award in the "Machine" category. Wirtgen has implemented the first intelligent machine design in the new large milling machine, which is capable of autonomously meeting the operator's performance and quality requirements. The entire milling process is simulated and optimized in real time based on a comprehensive analysis of all of the parameters. This greatly reduces the operator's workload while significantly improving machine performance and reducing diesel consumption, CO2emissions and noise, according to the manufacturer.
