Wirtgen’s slipforming and texture cure solutions for concrete paving
First published onCONEXPO-CON/AGG
Wirtgen is offering upgrades to its SP 60 Series pavers as well as the new TCM 180i texture cure machine. The self-propelled texture cure machine is designed around a modular basis with working widths of up to 18m. The firm claims that the TCM 180i is easy to use and it is fitted with controls that are similar to the system installed on the latest concrete pavers. The texture cure unit is able to deliver different surface textures, with transverse brooming and spraying functions. It can also be equipped with mounts for a burlap or synthetic turf. In addition customers can also opt for other surface textures, with longitudinal brooming and spraying and a diagonal finish being offered.
The SP 64i slipform paver meanwhile joins the existing SP 61i and SP 62i models as part of the new SP 60 series and will replace the successful SP 500. The SP 60 series combines the versatility of the SP 500 with the sophisticated systems seen in the SP 90.
