Wirtgen’s AutoPilot™ Demonstrated at World of Concrete

The Wirtgen AutoPilot™, an innovative stringless control system for use with Wirtgen SP 15 and SP 25 concrete slipform pavers, was demonstrated at World of Concrete 2013, held last February in Las Vegas.

AutoPilot is a user-friendly, cost-effective control system for poured-in-place concrete profiles, such as curbs, safety barriers or slabs. Throughout the show, Wirtgen America demonstrated the AutoPilot system on an SP 15 at its outside stand. Attendees also had the opportunity to set up their own courses using the AutoPilot system.

In addition, Wirtgen America displayed the SP 25 and new SP 80i slipform machines at its indoor booth.

The Wirtgen SP 15 concrete slipform paver has a maximum paving width of 183 cm, maximum barrier/parapet placement height of 130 cm, and weighs 12,930 kg. The SP 25 concrete slipform paver has a maximum paving width of 366 cm, and maximum barrier/parapet placement height of 196 cm, and was displayed in barrier configuration.

Also, the new full-lane-width SP 80i was displayed, set up for its maximum paving width of 7.9 m wide.

New to North America in 2013, the SP 80i comes in different configurations. It can be set up as an offset machine for very large sections, as a 2-track paver, and as a 4-track paver. The “i” designates these pavers as having “intelligent” power and emissions control systems.
