Wirtgen large milling machines targeted at Asian market

The latest cold milling machines from Wirtgen - the W 195 and W 205 - complete the company’s new large milling machine series for the Asian market, along with the W 215 model.

The new W 195 features a 2-m front loader for efficient milling operations. Equipped with a 410 kW diesel engine, the machine delivers enormous engine power while still consuming less fuel per cubic meter of milled asphalt. It is suitable for all milling operations typical of the 2-m-class.

The Level Pro Plus, the new levelling system developed by Wirtgen, has been completely integrated into the machine’s control system. It ensures a precise, high-quality milled result thanks to its simple intuitive handling. The preset target milling depth is accurately controlled via robust displacement sensors located in the hydraulic cylinders - which are mounted on the side plates - and is shown on the high-resolution Level Pro Plus colour display. The Level Pro Plus enables a wide range of sensors to be used as standard equipment. Mechanical surface scanning, cross slope sensor, ultrasonic sensors or the Multiplex system ensure high precision levelling for a wide variety of different milling applications.

The W 195 can achieve high daily production thanks to a simple and reliable operating concept. For example, the robust, easy-to-handle controls are arranged in a clear pattern and in line with application requirements. The weatherproof control screen provides clear information on all relevant data and operational parameters.

The other model, the W 205, is designed with high milling performance and professional supplementary equipment. The machine is equipped with a 455 kW diesel engine and caters to a wide range of applications, from surface course rehabilitation all the way to full pavement removal.

The W 205 offers high milling power.

The Flexible Cutter System Light (FCS Light) allows the use of different milling drums to increase flexibility and machine utilisation. With this system, milling drums with various tool spacings can be replaced in a short space of time, making it possible to perform a wide range of milling operations with one machine. As a result, the W 205 is extremely versatile to use, covering everything from standard applications through fine milling for the creation of new, level road surfaces (ideally with the multiplex levelling system) to the use of Eco cutters for a particularly high area performance at low cost.

Furthermore, the new Delta 18 milling drum technology and three adjustable milling drum speeds ensure high performance at low operating costs. With Delta 18, the W 205 can achieve an even higher milling output due to the optimised arrangement of the cutting tools in the outer ring and the conveying and ejecting areas of the milling drum, while simultaneously reducing the cutting tool wear. The three selectable milling drum speeds lead to an optimum milling performance across a wide range of applications, with milling widths of 2,000 mm and milling depths up to 330 mm. High traction of Wirtgen’s large milling machine is ensured by the robust track units fitted with large track pads.

The W 215 is the top performer among the cold milling machines, featuring a maximum milling performance and high productivity in a broad scope of applications. In this large milling machine, customers can call on an extra 25 percent of milling output, said Wirtgen. Equipped with a 470 kW diesel engine, the Wirtgen front loader delivers enormous engine power yet still consumes 15 percent less fuel per cubic meter of milled asphalt.

The W 215 also has a comprehensive range of equipment including the VCS vacuum cutting system for good visibility and optimum working conditions, camera system, LED lights, milling drum turning device and last but not least with a set of levelling equipment.
