EXPERTS IN RECYCLING A new model for recycling sector. During Ecomondo Cams launched the mobile crushing and recycling plant UTM 60.15. The crushing machine mouth, of considerable dimensions, can accept sizes of particularly elongated forms, such as beams, curbs, pillars, etc., normally present in rubble. The UTM operation is entirely managed by an electronic central unit. As a matter of fact, under the supervision of a PLC, the machine can automatically invert the direction of rotation of the motors (mastication effect) in order to remove any particularly tough matters from the crushing chamber. A crushing and recycling plant can imply two kinds of environmental pollution: the acoustic pollution and the pollution due to dust emission. The low speed of rotation of the UTM shafts avoids both pollutions. –

Global economy has weakened in 2012. Liebherr Group reached a turnover of 4,387.0 million € in the first six months of 2012, an increase of 9.8% or 393.0 million € compared with the corresponding period of the previous year. Turnover from construction and mining machinery was 7.7% or 203.6 million € higher than in the first six months of 2011, and totalled 2,837.4 million €. This increase is due to the upturn in their earthmoving as well as in their mining division. Turnover from earthmoving machinery increased by 14.4% or 134.7 million € to 1.071.0 million €. Revenues of the mining division have shown a very dynamic growth of 29.1% or 129.7 million € and reached 575.0 million € in the first half-year of 2012. Turnover of their two other construction machinery divisions went down. Sales revenues from mobile cranes were 5.2% or 50.2 million € lower, at 906.8 million €. In the construction cranes and mixing technology division, turnover reached 284.6 million € and was therefore 3.6% or 10.6 million € below the equivalent figure of the previous year. The development of their other divisions was very positive. Turnover from these product areas increased by 13.9% or 189.4 million € to 1,549.6 million €. EC 517

When it won the contract for construction site 113a on the B6N highway, the German Beton & Recycling was faced with a lucrative yet demanding job. They had approximately 50 days to raise an embankment in readiness for the construction of a steel arched bridge over the future Halle-Leipzig railway on the outskirts of Köthen. Beton & Recycling was immediately faced with depositing some 200,000 tons of material on each side of the bridge. The company opted for three latest-generation Case machines to fill key positions within the production chain. Site manager Torsten Hankel ordered one of the very first CX350C machines to be used in Germany for the extraction operations in the sand pit. The incoming material was spread and mounted by a new LGP (large grouser pads) 1650L bulldozer, the first Case dozer of this type to be used in Germany. The third new machine was a new type 1021F wheel loader, which had no trouble coping with the volumes of the material flows, thanks to its 4.4 m3 shovel.

FIVE NEW MODELS Effer, the Italian articulated cranes manufacturer, is making a concerted effort to capture overseas markets. In October it signed a distribution agreement with Atlas Cranes in the UK to sell its cranes in the country. The plan will see Effer’s range of high capacity models complementing Atlas’ relatively low capacity series, says Mauro Baldassin, Effer export manager, who led the deal. Focusing on the new cranes presented at the show, examples came from Effer with five new models in its Progress series. Three of them replaced previous models but the 395 and 525 were new, offering 39 and 52

tonne-metre ratings, respectively. The world premiere of the largest crane in the world to be legally mounted on a 32 tonne gross vehicle weight in truck, with full specification, was also on shown on the Effer stand. The 1855 has a 130 tonne-metre rating.

SARENS BREMERHAVEN TANDEM LIFT Two Terex CC 6800 crawler cranes have been the subject of a lift in tandem in the port of Bremerhaven. On behalf of Lloyd-Werft Bremerhaven AG, the Sarens Group recently lifted two sets of four gigantic jackup legs onto two offshore installation vessels belonging to RWE OLG GmbH, a logistics company that is part of RWE Innogy, at the free port of Bremerhaven. These legs enable installation vessels to lift themselves up from the water in the middle of the sea while installing wind turbines. The Sarens team relied on two Terex CC 6800 Crawler Cranes to lift the 630-tonne, 78 meter-long steel colossi with the assistance of a floating crane. –

NEW LINE OF ENGINES

The Lombardini factory has been named a centre of excellence in the Kohler Group. The production facility at Reggio Emilia will produce the new, innovative KDI engine that was developed to meet the Final Tier 4 - Stage IIIB regulations set to take effect on January 1, 2013. Fully optimized to meet market demands, the new line of KDI was developed by Lombardini Group using the most advanced technology currently available. Clean combustion achieved with a high-pressure (200 Mpa) common rail system of the latest generation, combined with an electronically triggered Egr valve that makes circulate the right amount of exhaust gases, enables emission levels to comply with the new regulations while providing exceptional performance - and all without the use of after-treatment systems. The added value of KDI and the technology employed to create it result in "best comfort" for the user and better performance, sturdiness, low levels of vibration and noise emissions, and low operating and maintenance costs. The three models with direct injection, each with a different displacement (1.9L – 2.5L – 3.4L), are available in two different configurations: Mechanical injection (Tier 3/Stage IIIA) and Common Rail injection (Tier 4/Stage IIIB).

QUALITY SPACE FRAME CABS Bosal-Sekura specialises in the design and manufacture of top-quality space frame cabs for industrial and agricultural vehicles. For example, Bosal-Sekura was chosen to develop and produce new safety cabs for the two Atlas Copco surface drill rigs 19 t and 30 t. The result was an effective modular cab for both machines. The initial challenge in the design brief was to construct a more spacious cab within the space available on the machine. The final design however, has been able to maximise every last bit of space available on the machine and even goes so far as to 'steal' previously unthought-of space by expanding over the top of the hydraulic tanks immediately behind the cab. This is giving a more solid and dynamic appearance while offering greater storage space inside.

COMPACT DESIGN AND ENERGY-EFFICIENT The MPR 50 medium-pressure axial-piston pump from Linde Hydraulics represents a new drive concept for the working functions of mobile machines equipped with an electronically-controlled propel drive. When compared directly with internalgear pumps and load-sensing pumps with pressure cut-off, it is clear that this type of pump offers significant advantages. It is more compact, it can be easily integrated into the existing propel drive control and it helps to save energy. When compared with other drive systems for working hydraulics (i.e gear-pump con-

figurations and load-sensing pumps with pressure cut-off), the new medium-pressure pump offers a significantly more compact design. For example, when used in a wheel loader, an MPR 50 is approximately 70 mm shorter than a standard gear pump configuration. In addition, by using the MPR 50 you can reduce the energy consumption of the working machine. Integrating the pump into the electronic vehicle management system is a straightforward process. The swash angle is proportional to the input current. The control device with position feedback control corresponds to the equivalent mode used on Linde HPV02 pumps and ensures that the flow is adjusted to the currently required precise value. The electronic control system enables engine map optimisation of the diesel engine, thereby ensuring that it is always operated in the optimum range. As the MPR 50 can be directly controlled, the same volume flow - and therefore the same actuator speed - can be generated at a lower diesel engine speed. 23

In view of the recent decision of the European Commission to reinterpret the nature of Directive 96/53 concerning the cross-border movement of longer and heavier trucks, the ERF (European Road Federation) would like to raise awareness of the important implications such a move may have for road barriers. “Road safety barriers are designed and tested according to the maximum weight of vehicles circulating on Europe’s roads. The current European Norm (EN 1317) allows for the testing of barriers considering the impact of vehicles up to a maximum of 38 tonnes. We are concerned that, should heavier vehicles be allowed to circulate more widely on Europe’s roads, this may have serious implications on the ability of road barriers to protect drivers from their own human mistakes”, explained Christophe Nicodème, Director General of the ERF. “We do not have an ideological opposition to heavier vehicles”, explained Konstandinos Diamandouros, Head of Office at ERF and responsible for the area of road restraint systems. “We simply believe that the introduction of heavier vehicles on selected routes should be accompanied by the necessary adaptations to the road infrastructure and this of course includes safety barriers”.

ROAD DIAPHRAGM Pluvitec presented at Asphaltica (Padua, last November) the road diaphragm Grid Bit, a real form of reinforcement that distributes weight and thereby increases fatigue resistance while greatly reducing stress. The Grid Bit road diaphragm can extend the life-span of roads that have to withstand a high volume of heavy-duty traffic. “In many cases - Pluvitec says - it rapresents much more cost-effective alternative to the complete overhaul of deteriorated roads”. The Grid Bit, laid either above or beneath the connecting layer depending on the degree of deterioration, acts as barrier that prevents cracks from extending to upper layers. The particular structure og the Grid Bit also guarantees the complete waterproofing of unconnected layers as well as of the foundation and bed, preventing the riskk of pumping and rising of fine materials.

While sustainable mobility is recognised as one of the keys to social and economic development, our roads are becoming increasingly congested, road transport has negative environmental impacts and more and more cars need to be accommodated. According to the IRF, a pivotal response to this dilemma lies in the increased deployment of ITS. These have the demonstrated ability to improve the efficiency, safety and quality of mobility. Speaking at a Ministerial Round Table convened in Vienna on 22 October, ahead of the 19th ITS World Congress, the Chair of IRF Geneva, Kiran K. Kapila urged political leaders to “recognise the role of technology in improving the efficiency, safety and quality of mobility and to reflect this accordingly in the design and implementation of road development programmes”.

WARM MIX ASPHALT

Evotherm warm mix asphalt technology - developed by MWV - can be used in any traditional hot-mix asphalt (HMA) application-from the binder course to the surface course. Of all the warm-mix asphalt alternatives, Evotherm’s technology allows asphalt application at a temperature that is 100 to 130°F (50 to 75°C) lower than HMA. Asphalt industry professionals trust Evotherm warm mix asphalt for three simple reasons: it is easy to use, it requires no equipment changes at the plant or job site and it is metered into existing materials and drops into existing HMA job mix formulas. The solution provides the lowest temperatures. This reduction in temperature expands the area a plant can service broadening markets without compromising quality. At the plant, Evotherm lessens the wear and tear on hot-mix equipment due to its lower processing temperatures. On the job site, traffic is returned immediately after compaction. Evotherm delivers proven performance. Workability and compaction at reduced temperatures are easier than HMA, especially for coarse mixes and polymer modified asphalts. –

On of the high-tech “star” at the last ITS World Congress in Wien, Austria, was Swarco Omnia, a sophisticated software solution and a high level software environment, that provides a homogeneous and user-friendly user interface for different traffic control and traffic management systems, making the operation of a traffic management system of any city or region much more convenient. Omnia is a open platform conceived by the Italian Swarco Mizar, to provide a uniform interface for any number of traffic control and transport management systems which are plugged-in autonomously or integrated within a common architecture. Omnia offers a user-friendly access and a homogeneous “look and feel” to all the functionalities and objects supported by the systems connected. The state-of-the-art response to the ever-increasing traffic volumes and daily congestion on today’s roads is an integrated architecture - IRTE, in which ITS applications for Traffic Control, Transport Management, Environment Monitoring and Multimedia Mobility Information can cooperate fully to implement traffic management strategies. But in multi-application environments it is essential to have a shared interface to the different systems. The Omnia concept exploits Swarco Mizar’s three decades of experience gained in the fields of traffic control, transport management, mobility information service and integrated ITS architectures. All of the ITS applications offered by Swarco Mizar have inherent features making them ideal for integration in the Omnia platform.

COLD ASPHALT Among the many innovative products presented at Asphaltica 2012 by Arezzo Bitumi, a Company of Gellini Group, we can mention the new product Pro Sealing (we will inform about that in one of the next edictions) and the more and more appreciated solution Modipatch, created with the intent of combining in a single product the performance of a hot mix and the ease of use of a cold mix. Modipatch, different in consituent materials, is the first cold mix made with plastomers and elastomers modified bitumen and synthetic structural fibers mixed with basaltic aggregates (size 0/8 mm) during a peculiar production process; the long preparation, in a delicate process that for its nature cannot be automated, gives to Modipatch excellent features of a hand-made and unique product. All these features give an unusual but want-

ed opacity to our cold mix. This opacity gives to Modipatch higher performances: first of all, when roads are re-opened to traffic Modipatch doesn’t stick to tires avoiding that usual but unwelcome result of aggregates crumbling and scattering on the surface; at the same time it can be said that this is the feature that allows the mix particles to strongly link together. Modipatch can be used without all the usual preventive actions such as cleaning the pothole and removing water from it; moreover the product doesn’t need bituminous primer or a final mechanical consolidation. Modipatch by Gellini is also very easy to use: thanks to its opacity, doesn’t stick to truck-beds as well as to shovels or other instruments used for spreading.

ADVANCED TRAFFIC CAMERA Traficon announced EYE-D, a powerful Automatic Number Plate Recognition (ANPR) camera that automatically recognizes license plates from all over the world with the highest accuracy. “At the 2012 edition of the Intertraffic exhibition in Amsterdam, Traficon already announced the acquisition of SUMIT srl Ltd, a UK-based provider of Automatic Number Plate Recognition (ANPR) technology”, commented Dieter Cosaert, Traficon Product Manager. “Now Traficon will take the opportunity of the ITS World Congress in Vienna to announce its first integrated ANPR camera to the public”. EYE-D addresses a wide range of applications, including red light enforcement, automatic tolling, urban congestion charging, black/white list applications and average journey time monitoring. Traficon’s EYE-D camera is equipped with a powerful infrared illumination, which enables it to monitor two lanes simultaneously up to a range of 60 meters during day and night time. The EYE-D has a very powerful Optical Character Recognition (OCR) engine, and a vast library of worldwide license plates and alphabet types. Many ANPR cameras fail to detect correctly when a license plate has been captured under a certain angle. In contrast, Traficon’s EYE-D makes use of very efficient de-skewing and derotation algorithms, which will auto-correct the detected number plate and align it so an accurate OCR is possible. This gives customers and installers more freedom of camera positioning in the real world. –

To extend the effective lifetime of the road paving it is necessary to reinforce the bound layers in order to increase the load-bearing capacity and, at the same time, insert a waterproof and watertight layer which prevents water passing through, stopping the consequent pumping phenomenon. Autotene Asfaltico Antipumping HE/TP extends the useful lifetime of the road paving because: it stops the transmission of cracks; it increases the fatigue resistance; it reduces deformation of the asphalt; it cancels out the “pumping” phenomenon. Established in 1978, Index soon became one of the most important Companies in the world for the production of technologically advanced waterproofing materials destined for the protection of residential, commercial, industrial buildings, major works and civil engineering. Index is present throughout all the Italian regions and abroad with branches in UK and France and over 100 distributors in the main countries of the five continents. –

Since 2001, Selenice Bitumi Sha extracts, treats, manufactures and distributes a natural asphaltite. Selenizza SLN is an additive used among others, for manufacturing high performance bituminous materials. This natural additive is only subject to hot purification process aimed to reduce its sterile rate. Selenice Bitumi product is compatible with all bitumen and its asphaltene content, which is superior to 50%, confers to the asphalt mixes exceptional rheological and mechanical properties.It may be blended directly whith the hot bitumen in tanks, but usually, it is added during the asphalt mixing process (in the mixer for the discontinuous asphalt plants, or in the recycling ring for the continuous plants). The addition of Selenizza SLN deeply modifies the rheology of the original binder. Depending on the added quantity of Selenizza, and on the base bitumen as well, it is possible to obtain precise penetration and/or R&B softening point values of the resulting binder.

Siemens and Streetline have launched the first of its kind smart parking project in the city of Braunschweig, Germany to provide parking relief to residents and local businesses. The project is locally-led by Bellis, a public-private partnership from Siemens and the Braunschweiger Versorgungs AG & Co. KG (BS | Energy). The advanced parking technology monitors parking space availability, distributes real time parking information to Streetline's free “Parker” smartphone app, and tracks parking patterns and habits to help City officials better manage parking throughout the City. This is the first advanced parking project implemented jointly by Siemens and Streetline in Europe. The City of Braunschweig has approved installation of parking sensors and networking equipment to monitor real time data in designated parking locations throughout Kurst-Schumacher-Str, Nimes-Str and Tauben-Str. “Parker” by Streetline provides drivers with the location and general availability of parking spaces, shows the amount of parking time remaining, and allows users to pay for parking via their mobile phone where available.

“BAIRES” UNDERGROUND PROJECT A few years ago, the Buenos Aires City Government commissioned an important hydraulic project to drastically reduce the flooding which periodically hits the city of Buenos Aires. It is called the Arroyo Maldonado project, and includes two tunnels with a diameter of approximately 6.50 metres, running from the south-west to the north-east of the City, to capture rainwater and channel it towards the Rio de la Plata River. Starting in September 2009, the shorter of the two tunnels was completed in around 350 working days, while the longer one was completed by the end of 2011. Mapei UTT was constantly present on site, ensuring high-level technical support, especially for the ground conditioning, the back-fill grout injection behind the rings and the use of tail seal grease in the TBM. The ground excavated by the TBM must be conditioned using special foaming agents, injected at the front of the TBM, that gives the ground a plastic and low permeability consistency. By choosing the most appropriate product (Poyfoamer FP), the boring machine progressed quickly. Mapequick CBS System 1 and 2 liquid admixtures for the two-component mix injected to fill the empty space behind the shield.

On November 14th Mr. Pietro Ciucci, CEO of the Italian road national Company Anas SpA made a speech at European Parliament focused on the development of the “New A3 Motorway Project”. Anas is currently engaged in the construction of the most modern European motorway: the new A3 Salerno-Reggio Calabria. Anas - Ciucci said - is building a completely new and safer motorway, with higher road curvatures and 3,75 meters traffic lanes as well as 3 meters emergency lanes. It features a 4 meter wide neutral ground along 443 kilometers. Therefore, the project is not simply an update and enlargement of the motorway but it represents the construction of a completely new infrastructure that replaces the existing one with minimal disruption of traffic, especially during the peak holiday season. Today, 272 kilometers have been completed, 93 kilometers are being built

and tenders have been published for other 20 kilometers for a total of 385 kilometers or 87% of the entire route. The original 443 kilometers at the end of the construction will be reduced to 433. There are 124 km without construction sites between Salerno and Lagonegro and 148 construction-free kilometers on the rest of the motorway to make up for the 272 kilometers of new road. Anas ambitious goal - the CEO concluded - is to complete all funded and initiated construction before the end of 2013. The current trend of construction allows to confirm such challenging goal both from an engineering and a financial standpoint. EC 540

Menestrina, established in Trento in 1895, at the beginning of the XX Century started developing technology and machinery for asphalt processing, such as storage tank farms, equipment for bitumen emulsions, then later on production machinery for roofing felts, and so on. The Company’s plant was totally destroyed during the second world war. At the beginning of the fifties, Menestrina developed the first hot oil heater in ltaly. Nowadays, the hot oil heaters series Olitherm find their typical application in the most severe industrial heating processes, as for example the cement factories' rotary kilns, for which the Company also provides heating and booster units for fuel oil, and waste-heat recovery systems. Concerning the machinery and equipment for asphalt processing, Menestrina’s experience is virtually unrivalled. As a logical step of development, the manufacturer also achieved the important target of being certified as an ISO-9001 Total Quality System Company by one of the eldest and most reputed Inspection Agencies in Europe. “The Company - Menestrina finally says - counts on much more than one Century of age, still it has the enthusiasm and a force of a young, brand new enterprise”. –

Polimeri Europa is entering a historic period of change, a transition that will see the largest petrochemical producer in Italy - and one of Europe’s biggest players - strengthen itself for the future. With a new name, new identity and new focus, the Company is repositioning itself as a more international, efficient and sustainable producer in a global, greener chemical sector. CEO Daniele Ferrari says its identity no longer reflected the vision of the future. The Company was originally named Polimeri Europa in 1995, arising from joint venture between Enichem and Unin Carbide. From March 2012 it has been rebranded as versalis (eni) to signal the change. “Europa is no longer our only focus - says Ferrari -. The new name will account for a tangible need for change innovation: it reflects our new direction”.

A REAL REVOLUTION One of the gems of the Merlo technology is the tool-carrying tractor MM 150 VR, a system which has truly revolutionised the way of working. The side telescopic boom (designed by Merlo) means that even the steepest slope or the tallest trees are accessible, while the operator has always complete control of the situation. This new machine allows to fully exploit the versatility of the various attachments that can be connected to the boom. No matter if you are using a grass-mower, a multi-blade shearer, a shovel to clean drains or hydraulic tongs for tree trunks, optimal visibility of the used attachment and of the working area is guaranteed even at over 10 m distance. The unusual construction layout and the exclusive ergonomic choices ensure a top level operating efficiency and comfort. The machine chassis, entirely made of steel and armoured in its bottom area, is fitted with a front three-point connection for a wide range of attachments while the rear connection (optional) can be used to connect countless types of equipment.

BETTER IN&OUT The production of the upgraded and realigned Landini 7 Series heavy-duty tractors has been started at Argo’s assembly plant in Italy. The five models (from 175 hp to 232 hp) feature the latest six-cylinder diesels from Fpt Industrial, strategic upgrades for the Autopowershift transmission and an improved driver’s cab. Landini 7 gained significant power and torque increases, especially for the Dual Power feature which is increased by as much as 20 hp over the previous models. Operators upgrading to a Landini 7 Series Scr tractor should therefore see quite a lift in performance when Dual Power is automatically engaged when powering PTO-driven implements.
