putzmeister AnD sAny merge

Putzmeister Holding GmbH and Sany Heavy Industry Co. Ltd announced the signing of an agreement on the merger of both companies. Sany, together with the Chinese Private Equity company CITIC PE Advisors (Hong Kong) Limited as a minority shareholder, thereby acquires 100 per cent of Putzmeister. The final closing of the deal is subject to approval by the relevant authorities and the customary closing conditions. The business activities of Putzmeister and Sany are highly complementary geographically. The merger of the Chinese market leader in concrete pumps with the leading provider in most markets outside of China thus follows a clear strategic and industrial rationale: the creation of the global market leader for concrete pumps. Both partners benefit substantially from the combination. Sany’s financial strength secures Putzmeister’s growth prospects and provides a significant competitive advantage. Sany adds to its portfolio technologically cutting-edge products and innovations and acquires a strong distribution and service network outside of China.

A new concept of internAl pressure It's called CRH440 and is one of the last born at Mantovanibenne equipment. This crusher, weighing 290 kg and with an aperture of 440mm, can be applied to excavators from 3 to 6 t and releases to the tips a force of 440kN. The characteristics of the CRH440 are considerably important because they give the user the possibility to work with benefits that typical of pliers of bigger size. All this was possible thanks to the great design work done by Mantovanibenne that allowed the creation of a new concept of internal pressure intensifier to the cylinders (win an award for innovation at Samoter 2010 and a nomination for the Demolition Summit 2011). The CRH440 is provided with free rotation to 360 ° (optionally hydraulic) and then the hydraulic Iine is not required on the mini excavator. –

HumAn mAcHine interfAce by fAssi Fassi Group announces it has reached a new frontier in processing data from on-board devices of loader cranes; the new technology helps operators to carry out their work with greater speed, precision, and safety. Among the most important innovation guidelines followed by the Italian company in Albino, the one which stands out the most has to do with the Human-Machine Interface (HMI). Its relevance has to do with the fact that today’s on-board systems for Fassi cranes (remote controlled) are so full of information that they require high levels of concentration; the near future is only going to see an increase in the available functions tied to the new systems. In the coming months, the Italian company will unveil this revolutionary, internationally patented system, which is capable of interfacing with the company’s own cranes via smartphones. By the HMI system you can operate as follow: set parameters for remote control levers, conduct rapid analysis and interpretation of crane-use statistics or - for example consult Fassi Geo Locator to reach support centres. –

FUTURE READY

In preparation for new regulations on emissions that are soon to take effect (final TIER 4, above 19 kW in the US; Stage IIIB, above 37 kW in the EU), Kohler/Lombardini is presenting a new line of KDI (Kohler Direct Injection) diesel engines. Fully optimized to meet market demands, the design was developed using the most advanced technology currently available. Clean combustion achieved with a high-pressure (2000 bar) Common Rail system of the latest generation (G3S solenoid-type injectors), combined with an electronically triggered EGR valve that makes circulate the right amount of exhaust gases (which are liquid-cooled by a water/air heat exchanger), enables emission levels to comply with the new regulations while providing exceptional performance - and all without the use of after-treatment systems. The absence of after-treatment systems offers countless advantages for both the manufacturer and the user. The added value of KDI and the technology employed to create it result in “Best Comfort” for the user, thanks to the compact size of the engine, and its performance, sturdiness, low levels of vibration and noise emissions, and low operating and maintenance costs.

DOZERS UNDERCARRIAGE Berco presents the track undercarriage system Robustus: The new system increases the life of all components and reduces ownership and operating costs. After the great success of the past editions of Bauma, Samoter and Conexpo, Berco will display at Intermat Robustus system for D5 and D6 machines. According to common experience, 50% or more of the maintenance costs during the life of a crawler dozer or loader belongs to undercarriage maintenance and repairs. Increasing the life of undercarriage components is the winning strategy to reduce ownership and operating costs. The core feature of the Robustus (ROtating BUShing Track Undercarriage System) is the rotating bushing. In a machine fitted out with traditional undercarriage the sprocket slides on the external surface of the bushing. In the new system the bushing rotates when in contact with the sprocket, reducing the bushing and sprocket friction and wear, thus making their life longer. As a consequence, it is not necessary to turn bushings and pins and replace sprocket segments during the whole life of the undercarriage. –

Geveko is now launching a new road marking concept, where Premark preformed thermoplastic is combined with sinus shaped grooves making the road marking visible in one direction only. Premark 3DX is a raised marking with 3D feature and hence higher visibility. The optional multi coloured horizontal sign has same recognition as a vertical sign. Furthermore, the sinus shaped grooves in the wheel track increase the awareness of the driver due to the rumble effect and vibration in the car, without disturbing the surroundings. Premark 3D-X is a durable and snow plough resistant solution. The solution can be used for increasing safety, for example in dangerous T-intersections without sufficient traffic lights and markings for road safety, or on highway ramps for preventing and fighting ghost drivers. But it could be also used for helping to protect the vulnerable road users at pedestrian crossings or bicycle crossings. The Premark 3D-X concept has a patent pending.

A traffic sign can be settled in only two minutes using a common hammer. TreeSystem grew up from an idea about ground fixing system, which proposes an innovative anchoring principle, still unknown for foundation skills, but used from time immemorial in nature. It artificially reproduces the method that trees use to hang at the ground and to grow vertically, thereof the name “TreeSystem”. After a trial that confirmed the effectivness of the principle, it has been applied for international patent. The device found its success in the photovoltaic industry where, integrated to a smart and innovative structure, met sector’s professional requirements. EC 327

Dynamic testing systems

new aspHaLt proDUction

24 www.abcmagazine.eu

Empirical testing of asphalt adapted until now is no longer sufficient to support the leap in quality of paving overtime due to the continual increase of road traffic in terms of frequency, weight, and load time. Controls R&D Department has promptly acknowledged the new requirements from the beginning of 1987. Vast range of testing apparatus for asphalt has been increased with the adoption of the SuperpaveTM testing methods and ASTM, AASHTO, EN standards and a key role is played by the dynamic technologies. On display at Intermat 2012 will be the Dynapave 78B7030, servo-pneumatic dynamic testing system 30 kN capacity, to perform indirect tensile stiffness, creep, fatigue, triaxial on unbound materials and tests under load or displacement control. This system performs load or displacement controlled test with programmable wave shape over frequencies up to 70 Hz, simulating the traffic effect.

Presenting the new Top Tower 3000 P (240 T/h), Marini (Fayat Group) has broadened its range of latest-generation asphalt plants and can now meet all the 200 to 300 t/h market’s needs. To ensure a production rate of 240 t/h in the most unfavourable conditions, it was decided to use the drying-filtering tower of the Top Tower 4000 plant. This consists of an upgraded 940 m² bag filter and a 10 m long dryer drum with a diameter of 2.50 m, equipped with a 19 MW burner and a recycling ring capable of achieving a recycling rate of up to 35%. The main innovation on the new Marini plant concerns the upper part of the mixing tower and the screen in particular. The Company R&D office sought to upgrade the screen and maximise the screening area (38 m² of total screening capacity and 6.6 m² for the sand screen), while keeping the dimensions down to a minimum.

at tHe Heart oF tHe graDers

Metal Wood will present at Intertraffic Amsterdam 2012 Probikers, the new safety barrier made of Corten steel. In July 2011 the solution passed the Class N2 crash tests in compliance with the harmonised standard EN 1317-5. Its main feature is the “mass” integration of an element which is very sought after by final consumers. Probikers by Metalwood grants more safety not only to drivers, but also to cyclists and motorcyclists since the post of the barrier is protected by a crash cushion which was planned and patented to resist to the different seasons, to string trimmers and snow ploughs. Thanks to a self passivation process, Corten steel grants both high quality and structural standard with a perfect integration in the environment. This is due to the final colour, which is not “zinc-plated” any more. It has instead a “rust effect” thanks to the formation of a compact and passivating layer on the surface which changes its colour with time and exposure to weather conditions.

New graders Komatsu will be on the stage during Intermat 2012. GD555-5 and GD675-5 combine the characteristics of the previous Dash 3 series with features that focus on high performance and fuel efficiency, operator comfort, safety and easy serviceability. “At the heart of the new graders - Komatsu says - is a powerful, low emission and electronically controlled common rail injection SAA6D107E-1 Komatsu engine”. Both machines have a 3-stage Variable Horse Power Control and fuel consumption is lower than on the previous models. A selectable work mode gives a choice between “Power” and “Economy”. Another essential point for graders is excellent blade controllability.

noise absorbing materiaLs Alubel produces a wide range of systems for sound absorbing and insulating barriers designed to achieve the highest possible results in reducing noise and in line with national and EC standards concerning fixed structures for attenuating irritating sounds. Noise abatement is achieved using sound absorbing and sound insulating materials that create a solid structure with no gaps to ensure against noise escaping and compromising the functionality of the barrier over time. Alubel started along its path in the world of abating noise about twenty years ago, marketing sound absorbing panels. Being well aware of this market’s potential and also thanks to its own technical and production capacities, Alubel later decided to produce sound absorbing panels itself. And this is when Alufon was created, a division inside the group to solve acoustic pollution issues, producing sound insulating panels in aluminium laminate or prepainted galvanised sheet and transparent PMMA panels. The Alufon anti-noise barriers have passed all the tests at the certifying bodies Modulo Uno and Istituto Giordano in conformity with the harmonised product standard EN 14388 and with the supporting norms UNI-EN 1793 and UNI-EN 1794 for determining acoustic performance and the safety and environmental requirements respectively.

Unlike metal meshes, even if galvanized, RXF 54 S will not rust, is not magnetic, is 100% resistant to acids, bases and all aggressive substances, as it is chemically inert. Ruredil RXF 54 S conforms to standard UNI EN 14889-2 for structural applications in injection mortars and concretes. Typical applications: fiber-reinforced sprayed concrete for coverings; fiber-reinforced sprayed concrete for durable, fire-resistant final coverings in tunnels; manufacture of prefabricated blocks for final coverings in tunnels. The particular geometric form and surface properties do not reduce mix workability. “RXF 54 S - the manufacturer says - requires much less cement paste than any synthetic and metal structural fibers. Perfect distribution of RXF 54 S in the fresh cement mix makes it possible to obtain a material which is structurally homogeneous and conforms to the recommendations”. EC 271

it is currently the third largest tunnel in Russia. Ten years after it began, the tunnel was successfully completed in 2009. In addition to the construction, road safety was also an important investment: over 300 CCTV cameras are used for tunnel monitoring. The feeds from all of these signals flow into a brand new, ultra-modern traffic control center where they are desplayed on a large screen alongside numerous computer signals via a split controller. In order to do this, the authorities opted for a large screen system visual solution from Eyevis: 36 of Eyevis’ 46inch LCDs are installed in an ultra-thin 12 x 3 arrangement.

The concept is specially configured for smaller tractors and makes it possible to use low-consumption and thus, low emission, load-sensing systems in an economical way. Such systems are already standards on larger tractors. Simulations based on a conventional 90Cv diesel engine verify fuel consumption savings of between 10 and 15 percent per operating hour in mixed operation. Projected over the usual service life of 6.000 operating hours with a typical load cycle distribution, users can expect savings of approximately 10,000 liters of diesel oil. –
