At the heart of the world famous WIRTGEN road milling machines are the milling drums, designed and manufactured in our Windhagen headquarters.
In the standard product range, WIRTGEN offers an extensive number of optional drums that help the customer to perform many applications in the surface processing, as well as performing recycling work or when cut mining hard rock.
Almost every day we respond to individual project enquiries with appropriate solutions that require the use of special milling technologies.
With success, such as the many special milling drums for WIRTGEN devices and for competitor machinery, but also for special equipment such as processing plants or even mine-cleaning equipment. In the
design and production departments using the latest CAD and CNC technology, a new product is created on the computer screen. After corresponding simulation calculations the data is transferred to the production.
Result: In a short time the customer can use his special roll on his site.
WIRTGEN can also produce nowadays line spacings up to 3 mm through highprecision milling drum manufacturing processes.
WIRTGEN milling machines can be used anywhere where increased quality demands are made on milled surfaces.
If machinery and tool manufacturers combine their skills, then the customer has many benefits. BETEK and WIRTGEN developed the first road milling pick in cooperation in 1982. Since then, both companies have utilised their experience to continuously develop the picks. The head office of BETEK GmbH & Co. KG is located in Aichhalden in the Black Forest and forms part of the SIMON group of companies founded in 1918. The close cooperation of the two system
partners enables us to quickly react to our customers’ wishes and suggestions. Development, construction and manufacture of various cutting tools at BETEK, perfectly matched to different machine types of WIRTGEN, ensure maximum performance of the WIRTGEN equipment.
The design of the picks varies between the different types depending on the application field and range. The components and their function are however always identical. Only the composition and geometry of the components is adjusted to the required applications. The highest possible economic efficiency is achieved by choosing the correct pick. This depends on the anticipated loads and acting wear mechanism. Picks for road milling machines, recyclers and stabilisers usually consist of five components
