Ramesh Palagiri, Wirtgen India
The Budget has increased allocation for Infrastructure development, which should translate into more demand for construction equipment in FY 2023, however, the implementation risks continue, and this could dampen demand, as is currently the case.
Ramesh Palagiri, Managing Director & CEO

Wirtgen’s customer-oriented development expertise is a guarantee of innovations tailored to the needs of the market.
Technologies like InLine pave are capable of paving two bitumen layers at the same time which can reduce the cost of coat layer with advantage of better compaction and strengthened bond between the layers. Power feeders through their contactless paving drastically improve the riding quality and productivity of paving.

Pavers from Voegele come with technologies that are smart enough to pave without manual intervention, once commanded. Enabling technologies which makes Vogele pavers intelligent and smart are WITOS Paving: GPS based machine control and coordination system; Road scan: Realtime temperature measurement system; Sprayjet: simultaneous spraying of tack coat and paving system; and Niveltronic plus 3D: Paving without manual interventions with coded field data.

All the machines offered by Wirtgen are equipped with computer-assisted automated features.
With its innovative, high-performance, and cost-efficient products and technologies for cold milling, soil stabilization, hot and cold recycling, concrete paving and surface mining, Wirtgen leads the world market in road and mineral technologies.

All the machines offered by Wirtgen are equipped with computer-assisted automated features, which not only optimize operating processes and machine productivity but also improve operator performance. Intelligent information and diagnostic systems additionally support and relieve the operator, resulting in a faster and more efficient way of working.

HAMM compactors are designed keeping in mind the best possible front and rear visibility while working or travelling.
Slim hood design offers wide and open rear visibility. Visibility in dark is taken care by the high lumen halogen/LED lights. Operator safety and comfort is enhanced with wide protective roof, all round handrails, vibration-isolated operator platform with rubber buffers, comfortable suspension, backrest adjustable seat, and anti-slip profile platform.

The benefits of the 3-point articulation can be seen every day in many situations on the construction site. The articulated joint guarantees unrivalled driving comfort as it absorbs shocks effectively. In addition, any tendency of tipping in curves is greatly reduced – an important safety factor.

Skill improvement through training is a continuous exercise at Wirtgen.
We are providing training to both internal and external stakeholders, customers and dealers. The post-pandemic era has seen swapping of manpower among organizations, which has introduced new faces in almost every organization on a higher scale than the pre-pandemic times. Many onsite as well as online classroom trainings have been conducted to upskill our own as well the customer’s manpower.

Lean Manufacturing is more of a mindset; it is about Philosophy, Processes, People, and most importantly Problem Solving; and adopting ‘Construction 4.0’ will create sustainable Infrastructure.
Lean Manufacturing serves as the foundation of manufacturing at Wirtgen India. Lean is not just about 5S or elimination of waste, it is more of a mindset. We stick to the basics and use the latest technological tools such as IoT as a means to improve every day.

The term ‘Construction 4.0’ was coined from the Industry 4.0 concept which is regarded as the fourth industrial revolution that originated from Germany. The construction industry has yet to fully realize similar benefits because the adoption of ICT is still at the infancy stage with a major concentration on the use of software.

Creating awareness through seminars, workshops and training will convince construction professionals about the benefits of Construction 4.0. Adopting the concepts will improve the performance of the construction industry regarding cost and time savings and create sustainable Infrastructure.
