Wirtgen's WPS 62i placer feeds concrete from the side and spreads it homogeneously in front of the slipform paver
When road surfaces and paths are paved over preplaced reinforcing steel, the concrete can often only be supplied from the side. The WPS 62i/WPS 62 placer/spreader is designed to efficiently feed concrete from the side and spread it homogeneously in front of the slipform paver.
As the first machine in the Wirtgen paving train, it travels over the reinforcement in front of the slipform paver and texture curing machine. A truck feeds the concrete from the side, which the placer/spreader then evenly distributes over the entire working surface. The WPS 62i/WPS 62 is available with two different scraping units: in imperial units with working widths between 12 ft. and 24 ft. and in metric units with working widths from 4.00 m to 7.5 m. With both of them, the concrete can be laid up to 20 inches (500 mm) thick.
With a hydraulically telescoping machine frame and concrete scraper unit, the 2-track placer/spreader can be adapted to any job site situation. A fully modular design with standard hydraulic quick-change couplings allows the WPS 62i/WPS 62 to be easily converted and quickly prepared for transport to the next location.
