AUTOLEVELING ON PICK-UP A314 mounted on pick-up Isuzu D-Max is an articulated aerial platform developed for off-road interventions where a standard platform would not be able to access or deploy the outriggers. Capable of reaching a maximum working height of 13.5 m and a maximum outreach of 6.5 m, the Socage A314 has got a safe working load (SWL) of 225 kg. The concept of auto-levelling column is really new: Thanks to a system of hydraulic rams and electrically-controlled cylinders, the column and outriggers self-stabilize and selflevel, recovering the pick-up inclination. The column is based on a system of cylinders and joints that allow movements in four directions: two angular security controls, an angle transducer and an inclinometer. The A314 on Isuzu is able to face downhill, on both sides, up to 8° inclination. EC 133

CRUSHER FOR 2014 WORLD CUP An all-Brazilian challenge for the Italian Company MB, leader in the earth moving and construction industry: its products have been in use for several months at various sites across the country. Thanks to a partnership with Grupo Monte Sinai Locação Ltda, the MB’s Crusher Buckets and Screening Buckets have been used for the construction of the Arena Pernambuco stadium ahead of the 2014 Brazilian World Cup. It all began in 2009 with initial contact between the Group owners , Abinael Manoel and Enoque Manoel De Souza and MB Area Manager for Brazil, Carlotta Mettifogo. “We purchased the first BF90.3 in May 2011” - the De Souzas explained - “and used it for recycling demolished material at the Atlantico Sul shipyard in the Port of Suape (Pernambuco). We then took the MB Crusher Bucket to the Shopping Rio Mar site to crush inert material from the demolition of an old factory, and this material was subsequently reused at the same site”. “We are really pleased with the purchase” - the owners confirmed - “so much so that in January 2012 we bought another model from the range, the BF120.4, and then in March 2012, the Screening Bucket MB-S18”.

NEW MULCHING HEADS 6 www.abcmagazine.eu

The CanginiBenne mulching heads have been designed for fitting to track loaders, mini track loaders, farm tractors and excavators. They are split into two categories, front-fitting and for excavators. Standard fittings include flow-adjustment valve and bypass valve. The excavator version mounts a hydraulic system and does not require a drainpipe, thus making it possible to cut installations costs and making the equipment easily interchangeable on different types of operating machines. The CanginiBenne’s front mulcher features a floating system as standard (optional on the excavator mulcher). This enables the mulcher to adapt to the terrain, thereby considerably improving work quality. A standard fitting for front mulchers is the mechanical movement, which permits moving the mulcher sideways with respect to the machine track, while the hydraulic movement system is optional. All the mulchers, both front and excavator, can be equipped with knives and/or rams depending on user requirements. EC 100

REDUCING TIME AND COSTS The new Aluteck system is the ideal solution for making hollow and lightened clay-cement slabs. It is therefore a particularly useful product for companies engaged in the construction of small and medium buildings for civil and residential uses. The Aluteck by Faresin Building, provides an excellent quality/price ratio, combined with great practicality of use: The cement is already cured just a few days after pouring, in fact it is possible to recover the panels early, thanks to the drop heads and just leave the props and the support for the regulatory 28 days. The system envisages complete assembly from below, thereby reducing the risk of falling to a minimum. The light Aluteck panels, made of aluminium frame and faced with solid plywood are available in various formats (the largest measuring 1500 x 1125 mm), guarantee maximum strength and combine perfectly with those of the Alufort system. The associated accessories also make it possible to produce structures with downstand beams.

In the first half of 2012, despite the prevailing difficult economic situation, especially in Europe, the Palfinger Group managed to continue its positive performance of previous quarters. Year on year, the Group has continued to record a two-digit growth rate in revenue. This was based on stable demand primarily in the core markets. On the other hand, the growth achieved in the areas of North America, South America and CIS and in the globally operating business unit Marine Systems was a major contributor to this positive development. Earnings also increased slightly compared to the already satisfactory level achieved in the previous year.

SUCCESSFUL COOPERATION With rapid advances in technology and emission legislation, not only the choice of technology but also the choice of engine supplier has become an important issue for equipment manufacturers for the construction industry. In 2011, Volvo Penta and Sandvik Mining and Construction AB signed a cooperation agreement with the goal to enhance the long-term competitiveness of Sandvik’s products. Until today, Sandvik has introduced Volvo Penta engines in several models from its product lines for crushers, drilling rigs, loaders and haulers. “Volvo Penta has been receptive to our requirements during the development and we are pleased with the engineering support they provide us”, says Chris Jobburn, Senior Product Support Engineer at Sandvik Construction. Installing after-treatment systems have proven to be a major issue for many equipment builders in the US and the EU. For Sandvik engineers, the SCR technology has not been a major challenge. “This is just another regular engine installation”, commented Seppo Karhu, Manager for engine installations at Sandvik Mining, after the first-ever loader with SCR for mining and tunnelling applications had been developed.

ONE-MAN CRANE A “state-of-the-art, one-man crane”, this new machine combines the company’s latest roadability innovations with the only 50m single cylinder telescopic boom currently available on 3 axles. It is capable of performing lifts of up to 35,6t at 4m radius within the 12t axle load. The Terex® Challenger 3160 also performs within country-specific 10t axle load requirements using its counterweight self (de-) rigging ability for a total vehicle weight of less than 30t. Equipped to avoid the need for people to work at height, the boom can be tilted 5° under floor for easy and fast assembly of the variable jib or re-reeving of the hook block safely from the ground. Designed for performance across the entire working range, an innovative 3-sheave, “VarioHook” system with a strong 18mm rope (6t single line pull) conveniently shortens rigging time, reduces weight of equipment transported and saves time and money on the job and on the road. As an example of performance, the new Terex® Challenger 3160 lifts 32.5t at 5m “container radius”. Equipped with a high-power hoist offering lifting speeds of up to 121m/min, plus the innovative capability of offering 15t of telescopic power, it helps operators save time while providing surprising power and optimum maneuverability in tight spaces. –

AC ELECTRIC DRIVE Genie is bringing rough terrain ability and full height driving capability to the electric drive scissor market with the launch of the new GS™-2669 DC, GS™-3369 DC and GS™-4069 DC machines. The innovative approach sees the adoption of its highly-efficient and zero emission AC drive system to rough terrain scissor lifts thanks to a patented full-time oscillating axle. Genie was the first to offer AC electric drive in an articulated boom and has now introduced the technology to its rough terrain scissor lifts for emission-free operating both inside and outside buildings. The drive system consists of batteries and an inverter that converts the stored DC current into threephase AC electricity for the new drive motors which provide increased acceleration, gradeability and lift speeds. In addition, the new AC motors are up to 30% more energy efficient than the DC units and by way of a comparison, an independent study of AC driven electric forklifts showed their fuel costs are 60% lower than their dieselpowered. –

An extension of the program is planned by Sampierana: The loaders Eurocomach are available on wheels (ESK 130.4 & ESK 150.4) or in track version (ETL 160.4 & ETL 140.5). During the developing of the Sampierana machines a lot of emphasis was laid on a good accessibility to the engine, to the control block and to the refill positions. All versions are equipped with hydrostatic transmission. Each of the four wheels is driven by a hydraulic gearbox motor and controlled by 2 transmission pumps (one for each side). The Tracked Version has one hydraulic gearbox motor for each side, each controlled by transmission pump. Advantages of the hydrostatic transmission: compared to the conventional drive system: The right joystick controls the arm and bucket cylinders. The left joystick commands all driving directions and all changes of direction. In addition to an immediate control, the hydrostatic transmission ensures a very low turn-radius and low maintenances needs.

FOR LED LIGHING POINTS

The Italian company Reverberi Enetec presented a control and monitoring module for Led lighing points (Lpl), i.e. a component installed inside the Led luminaire to perform the remote measurement, diagnosis and control by means of a power line carrier system. The Lpl module for Led luminaires expands the functions of Lps and Lpc modules, offering the possibility to control the luminous flux and to save energy also for the up to date luminaires equipped by Led technology. The Lpl module by Reverberi Enetec communicates with its control unit by a power line carrier technology over the feeding cable, ASK modulation at 125 Khz. The reading of the electric measures by the control center, allows to individuate any fault and, at the meantime, to perform a correct analisys regarding the operativity of the lighting points managed. There is another important additional advantage: the module Lpl is also a device that operates by means of power line carrier technology. If the manager of the plants later decides for an individual control of lighting points, it will be only necessary to install the communication module in the feeding panel without any additional works. A configuration software allows you to set the operating mode of the module.

There is no other manufacturer of mulching equipment that can boast such a huge range of machines as the Italian Company Seppi M. Seppi made their first mulcher back in the very early 70s. This was a mulching mower for use in the apple orchards and vineyards of their native South Tyrol in the very north of Italy. From this it has developed 72 different models. Multiply this by an average of 5 different widths and then by the number of different build options and you will have many thousand different machines. On top of this there is now a range of 6 stone crushing machines. So where, in this mass of machines, do we find the models that are particularly applicable to the construction machinery market? They will probably start with the excavator mounted machines. Seppi can provide models suitable for excavators from 2 - 35 tons.

Bonfiglioli’s idea is to offer a complete yaw control solution based on the integration of mechanical, electrical and electronic control sub-systems in a single mechatronic unit. The new, integrated unit forms a complete yaw system, guarantees improved performance and delivers various advantages in terms of reliability and availability. Existing turbines equipped with conventional yaw systems (with fixed speed motors and no inverter control) can be quickly and easily retrofitted without having to change the mechanical layout of the nacelle. The new inverter can be fitted simply by removing the terminal cover of the electric motor and fixing the electronic unit in its place.

A RADIAL MULTIPURPOSE TYRES

QUALITY FOR PASSION

The Multimax MP 543 tyres offer excellent manoeuvrability on the road, at any operative condition, guaranteeing traction and safety. Key word: Drive. One of the most distinctive features of the MP 543 series, by BKT, is its all steel structure, which allows high speed even with heavy loads. The steal belts makes this radial tyre extremely resistant against punctures, guaranteeing continuous productivity on any kind of terrain or route, even the bumpiest one. Besides, the resistance against both punctures and damages is outstanding, considering that the latter always represents a risk at particularly hard working conditions. The special non-directional tread design of the Multimax MP 543 (in picture MP 522), a real backbone, makes it the ideal product to boost its traction talent in mixed applications both on asphalted roads and off-the-road tracks. Thanks to the special lugs excellent results can be achieved under any conditions - even if carrying heavy loads. Thanks to the special compound realized by the BKT engineers for the Multimax MP 543, the tyre excels by extreme cut and against tyre overheating under extreme working conditions. Not only for this reason, the tyre is among the best choices for equipping crane trucks or other means operating on construction sites of any kind and anywhere in the world. –

TWO TBM IN ACTION The first of two Aker Wirth tunnel boring machines for one of the most important infrastructure projects in Europe was delivered on 24th August 2012. The two telescopic shield machines have a diameter of 9.93 m each. They will be in operation in Austria from the end of 2012 and will be used to create the main section (approx. 18 km in length) of the 32.5-km long Koralm tunnel. This tunnel is part of the new major high-speed train route linking Graz and Klagenfurt. Access to the underground construction work areas brings a particular challenge. The only possibility is a 60m deep shaft, through which the main components of the machine will be transported and subsequently assembled. “With this project, we can draw on more than 40 years of experience in hard-rock tunneling - said Hans Greve, Vice President Mining & Construction at Aker Wirth -. With our experienced employees, we are confident that we will successfully meet the challenges regarding logistics and underground assembly”. “With the factory approval for the first TBM, we have reached a significant milestone for our KAT 2 (lot 2) tunnel construction project”, said Robert Goliasch, machine engineer at ARGE Koralmtunnel KAT 2. –

No Fire is a modern system for collection and management of water for road tunnels. The water managed by the system is both external (drainage) and that falling on the road surface in the tunnel (washing, dragging, infiltration, by sprinklers etc., as well as accidental liquid spills), so No Fire is part of the drainage system and the firefighting system, and thus satisfy environmental and safety protection criteria. The system and related products which constitute the system were developed by System Group (Italy) after the update on the rules governing the safety of road tunnels immediately after the famous incident that happened in the Mont Blanc tunnel between Italy and France in 1999. No Fire system has been studied and tested mainly to prevent the extension of the fire in case of accident, with flammable liquids, which could enter into the drainage collector from the road surface extending along the road axis. Moreover, the system also prevents the entrance of the exhaust gases from vehicles transiting in the tunnel into the buried drainage system throughout the service life of the infrastructure, avoiding that a fire starting (or explosion) can be extended by effect of gas accumulated inside the collector.

THERMAL IMAGING CAMERAS As the amount of cars on our roads is increasing, the demand for accurate traffic monitoring and roadway surveillance systems is rising. Such systems need to operate 24/7. CCTV cameras are often used for this purpose, but these cameras have limitations when it comes to nighttime operation. They are also subject to many limiting factors during the day. The new Flir FC-Series T thermal imaging cameras produce a crisp image in the darkest of nights. They need no light whatsoever to operate. Another advantage is that they can produce an image in practically all weather conditions. They can see through light rain, light fog and even smoke. The Flir FC-Series T are also perfect for seeing in broad daylight. They are not hindered by reflections or direct glare. That makes these thermal imaging cameras ideal instruments for a wide variety of traffic monitoring applications such as: vehicle detection at intersections, road side monitoring, monitoring traffic in tunnels, highway traffic management.

DUAL IS BETTER

The Dual Mode steering axle by ADR allows the maximum project freedom: only one axle can fit agricultural trailers both as a self steering and a power steering axle. The manufacturer of the trailer can decide it at any step of construction: no modification to the structure is required. He only has to choose the proper hydraulic equipment. The key component is a special cylinder exploiting the function of connecting bar too. This solution allows the engineer to choose the right wheels and design the bracket of suspensions without limitations because the hydraulic cylinder only covers the central zone of the axle beam. Even the hydraulic fitting takes advantage of that because all the oil lines run along the central axis of the chassis. In detail, the power steering axle has a compact and powerful hydraulic system optimizing the layout and reducing the working pressure for maximum manoeuvrability and economy in service, reduces both fuel consumption and tyre wear and has a drawbar cylinder with ball head already in accordance with the new ISO 26402 directive for full compatibility with the most of the tractors.

HAPPY VEGETABLES! BOX-TRAIN trolleys by Cesari are an innovative system for collecting fruit, grapes, vegetables and various farm products in bins, and can be used in every type of orchard and in cultivated fields, on grass-covered or compact ground, flat or slightly hilly surfaces. The basic unit consists of a pair of trolleys, manufactured in ST version, capacity of one bin per trolley, and DL version, capacity two bins per trolley, with the following characteristics: completely galvanised and detachable, suitable for accommodating wood or plastic bins of all sizes (also pallets for cases harvesting) - small wide tread tubeless tyres, places on a track narrower than that of the tractor, assure load stability and elasticity, avoiding damage to the produce even on bumpy ground - to optimise work it’s necessary to join a number of pairs to form a train, which must be drawn by a small tractor, and the particularity is that the last trolley follows exactly the same path as the first one and with the same radius of curvature.

TRACTORNET! The Fendt GuideConnect solution was presented at the German Agritechnica 2011 Convention in Hannover Germany - probably the largest agricultural conventions in the world where it won the gold medal for innovation. But how does this work? Using GPS steering on both tractors the assembly is controlled by one single driver who sits in the leading tractor. He has control of both the tractors via radio signals. The unmanned tractor steering system is designed to perform the exact same actions the manned tractor does. This is even possible at the end of the rows when the tractors need to take a new line in the opposite direction - task that was pretty tricky up until now, even for conventional GPS guided tractors. All what is needed is some beforehand planning of the working process and you are ready to start. EC 434
