Wirtgen has introduced the new WPS 102i placer/spreader and the SP 94i slipform paver with TeleMold at World of Concrete 2022.
The two new machines are part of a complete concrete paving train from Wirtgen.
The new WPS 102i is Wirtgen’s latest addition to its range of two-track placer/spreaders. The concrete can be placed for working widths from 4 metres to 12 metres at thicknesses of up to 50 cm. Thanks to the fully modular machine design with standard hydraulic quick-change couplings, the WPS 102i can be as quickly and easily reconfigured as the smaller WPS 62i. This ensures fast transport from job-to-job and maximum machine availability.
The WPS 102i can be precisely controlled by stringline scanning, stringless 3D applications or Autopilot 2.0 from Wirtgen.
The Wirtgen SP 94i with TeleMold
The SP 94i is a fully modular, 10-metre class inset slipform paver with an enormous variety of applications. The paver can be used for construction of wide roads and highways, airport aprons, taxiways and runways.
World of Concrete is the first event where 4-track paver can be seen fitted with TeleMold.
TeleMold enables fast and flexible alteration of the working width by up to 1 metre on each side, resulting in an overall increase of 2 metres. Short reconfiguration times mean paving contractors can look forward to high machine availability and utilization rates.
In addition to the quick-change elements of the mold, the TeleMold is also equipped with a quick-change system for the metering gate and vibrator mountings. This means that crews can pave and reconfigure the working width all on the same day. The system can be fitted to SP 64i, SP 94i and SP 124i slipform pavers.
SP 15i Offset Slipform Paver
The SP 15i is also on display at World of Concrete with two brand new features.
The paver now features a retractable extension for the operator’s platform. This allows operators a better overview of the paving results, the concrete feeding system, the transfer hopper and of the inside of the compaction chamber of the mold.
The second new feature is the “curb depressor mold”, fitted with a hydraulically adjustable inset integrated in the mold. This is used for the construction of lowered curb profiles, which significantly reduces the need for manual reworking.
