Wirt­gen W 100 CFi: A spe­cial job for the com­pact milling ma­chine, ex­tend­ing the broad­band net­work

NBM&CW - - EQUIPMENT & MACHINERY -

In Aus­tria, a Wirt­gen W 100 CFi com­pact milling ma­chine with deep milling unit is be­ing used for trench­ing prior to the lay­ing of broad­band ca­bles – just be­fore it sets to work milling off en­tire pave­ments.

The spread of fiber-op­tic ca­bles is ad­vanc­ing rapidly across the world, and the Up­per Aus­trian district of Schärd­ing, not far from the Ger­man bor­der, is no ex­cep­tion. Here, too, com­mu­ni­ties are be­ing given broad­band in­ter­net ac­cess. En­gel­hart­szell is the sec­ond com­mu­nity to ben­e­fit from this tech­nol­ogy of the fu­ture. And the con­trac­tor, Hem­mel­mair Frästech­nik GmbH from Linz, is also mak­ing use of cut­ting-edge tech­nol­ogy, in this case made from steel and car­bide. For lo­cal road­works, the milling ser­vice provider is us­ing the W 100 CFi, a model from the lat­est gen­er­a­tion of com­pact milling ma­chines fea­tur­ing a deep milling unit that Wirt­gen have de­vel­oped es­pe­cially for this ap­pli­ca­tion.

Rapid change be­tween trench­ing and re­pair

“We have 15 Wirt­gen cold milling ma­chines in op­er­a­tion. In the course of our long-stand­ing col­lab­o­ra­tion, we have come to un­der­stand the so­lu­tions and ex­per­tise of the com­pany, and this prompted us to turn to the Wirt­gen Group in Aus­tria in this case, too,” ex­plains Man­fred Gröss­ing, Man­ag­ing Director of Hem­mel­mair. Once the re­quire­ments had been dis­cussed with Wirt­gen's prod­uct man­age­ment team, the de­sign depart­ment at the brand head­quar­ters in Ger­many was given the de­vel­op­ment or­der. “We wanted our cus­tomer to be able to use the milling ma­chine flex­i­bly, i.e. be able to switch back to con­ven­tional re­pair jobs as quickly as pos­si­ble,” says Man­fred Stiegler, Cus­tomer Ser­vice Man­ager at the Wirt­gen Group's sales and ser­vice com­pany in Aus­tria.

So­lu­tion for trench­ing: new cut­ting wheel from Wirt­gen

The W 100 CFi was the ideal choice for the job in Up­per Aus­tria. Be­ing one of the new gen­er­a­tion of Wirt­gen com­pact milling ma­chines, it in­te­grates many in­no­va­tive added and au­to­mated func­tions that give highly ef­fec­tive sup­port to users when
