BRAND NEW YEAR, BRAND NEW CHALLENGE 2009 is over. It has been one of the toughest years ever for the worldwide market. The economic downturn and the credit crunch heavily affected all of us and in particular earth moving machines and attachments. Nevertheless overall, Simex still achieved an encouraging result by the end of the year; thanks to this the Italian company looks at the future market challenges with a bit of optimism. The most important event in 2010 will be the Bauma Show in Munich, next April. Simex will be there with a 180 square meters space inside the Pavillion B3, stand B216. All the Simex range will be shown there. Furthermore: Simex will also have an external demo area, outside the Pavillion C4 (area 406), where visitors will be able to see a crusher bucket working on an excavator. During the exhibition, Simex will officially launch into the worldwide market its latest

product, completely designed within its R&D department: the rotary cutter TF100. This small but efficient attachment, to be fitted on small excavators, can be the ideal partner for small trenching jobs in different working grounds. Also, the family of the Simex crushers for excavator becomes larger and more complete: the biggest Simex CBE50 will be shown for the very first time in Munich, and also the prototype of the smallest one, the CBE10, will see the light right in those days, to start its tests before becoming an official Simex product.

Engineering” supplies outstanding customized projects including but not limited to complete assembly kits (with 1-6 t/m cranes) for vehicles in 3.5 - 7.5 t capacity, both with tipping and fixed body. One of the latest newcomers is a special kit for cargo vehicle Iveco Daily 35 (3 m gauge) featuring a 2.5 t/m crane model RF333 with two hydraulic segments and one tipping body. The complete installation is PTO powered by a Hetronic radiocontrol with 6 functions. The new Kit was named “New Concept Crane” and is extremely user-friendly and easy to assemble. It will not take more than 24 hours to complete the assembly any new installation. The entire system is designed and constructed in full compliance with the EC Directive 2006-42 expected to be enforced by 01/01/2010. Sales and assistance for this new kit and all RF cranes are available at a highly-reliable network of dealers and service centers specialized in the conversion of commercial and industrial vehicles in Italy and in Europe. The products of are distributed on all main European markets through a number of tight collaborations in the field of automotive and outfitting. The “New Concept Crane” has resulted out of years of studies and researches yielding an absolutely revolutionary and innovative system accounting for vehicles types and features, for types of body, and cranes, for crane capacity, for possible installation and for testing requirements.

The frame takes a spatial structure that consists of a backbone nodes and extruded tubular parts skeleton. In this type of machine elements extrusions are joined together to form a strong cage and support the electro-galvanized steel body. It follows a complex architecture capable to resis to 6g torsions.

EFFICIENT DUST BUSTER Wlp was founded in May 2005 with the aim of planning, constructing and selling dust suppression and odour control systems.

 Variable geometry turbo (higher torque at low rpm)

 A powerful engine brake (264 kW) with no impact on the cooling system The power absorbed by the hydraulic retarder overheats the oil, whereas the exhaust brake overheats the engine. On the other hand, the Iveco Cursor engine brake exploits the sudden opening of the exhaust valve at the end of the compression phase releasing the overheated air on the outside without creating obstructions. The compression phase brakes the engine by itself, whereas during the expansion phase, the cylinder must be “dragged” by the engine to the bottom dead center, creating an additional braking action

INNOVATION AND EFFICIENCY  Pump injectors in a single steel structure, to increase the injecting pressure (efficiency) avoiding reliability and safety issues Internal “continuous” EGR complying with antipollution laws, without additional radiators and electronic parts exposed to high temperatures or vibrations (reliability and simple design) At low rpm, the turbo runs slowly due to the low flow of exhaust gases. In order to increase the speed and therefore the engine power, a computer driven pneumo-mechanical device reduces the intake thus increasing the gas speed (Venturi effect) and the turbo rpm.

A concept transmission in the evaluation EC phase, the Spicer TE-15HX is an electric 204 parallel hybrid featuring a dual power path transmission control system. Targeted for use on material handling vehicles, this system continuously monitors operating conditions and selects the proper combination of diesel and electric power to optimize productivity while reducing fuel consumption, emissions, noise, and engine idling. Dana has adopted a neutral stance toward energy-storage chemistry in the development of the Spicer TE-15HX transmission, allowing it to integrate with many different energy storage solutions. At bauma 2010, Dana will show a system configured with super capacitors that would be used with highly cyclic applications such as front-end loaders, while container handlers and other applications that permit longer duration charging under a light load can be outfitted to work with lead-acid storage and other conventional battery technologies. Whenever possible, the TE-15HX control system disengages the diesel engine and supplies power from the energy storage system for inching and other vehicle operations that require low energy consumption. During idling, it provides power for lights, climate control systems, and other electrical accessories. The Spicer TE-15HX transmission capitalizes on the flexible modular design of the popular Spicer TE-15 electronically modulated transmission to coordinate the operation of the diesel engine and electric device. Dana is evaluating three-speed and four-speed versions of the TE15HX transmission in long-drop and short-drop configurations with an estimated rating of 110 kW to 175 kW (147 to 235 horsepower).

Comer Industries extends its range of drive gears with rotating outer casing thanks to the new PGRF25000 model, 25,000 daNm nominal torque at output implementing the new output stage on smaller Comer Industries planetary stages. This drive features the typical flange to be connected directly to the fixed support on one side, and the mobile flange, included in the rotating casing, to which a side of the drum is directly secured. The double mobile flange rotation conical roller bearing acts as a winch support. A “Duo-Cone” front seal features between the two flanges. This seals the reduction gear perfectly even in the most difficult environmental conditions. This same drive can be fitted paired with another identical one, acting as a further support and winch mover of double capacity and by itself, thanks to 50,000 static daNm at output, ensures safe operation in emergencies caused by other unit failure. The 4-stage version shown, with total reduction ratio between minimum 143 and maximum 225:1, features movement by means of two hydraulic motors at 180° on input crown gear. Downstream of each motor and before the first reduction stage, is a “negative” oil-bath disc brake - acting as static and EC safety brake - with min braking torque above max motor 071 input torque. The 25000 drive gear by Comer Industries is suitable for mobile crane winches and other winches like those for marine applications. The PGRF25000 end stage can also equip the PGA 25005 traction track drive to form a 5-stage drive gear, with flanged input for hydraulic motor at 90° to the track fastening output flange axis. The 5 stages are a combination of bevel gear, planetary and parallel drive gears to form a very compact and sturdy solution given the provided performance.

HIGHER DYNAMICS AT LOWER ENGINE SPEEDS Intelligent integration of hydraulics and diesel engine control retains the dynamics of machine functions even with Tier 4 final engines and enables a fuelsaving reduction of rpm’s without sacrificing overall performance. High dynamic response of the travel drive and implement hydraulics on mobile work equipment even at reduced diesel engine speeds and for Tier 4 final engines: this is the goal Rexroth has achieved with their electronic Bodas system solution called “Diesel Hydraulic Control”. Developed together with the diesel engine specialists from Bosch, the world’s largest automotive supplier, this solution for engine management and as well as drive and working hydraulics reduces diesel fuel consumption by up to 20 percent. With Diesel Hydraulic Control (DHC) Rexroth has teamed with Bosch to develop a new control strategy which retains the accustomed lively response of the travel drive and implement hydraulics even under conditions of diminished load response and lower engine speeds. DHC changes the traditional function sequence and lets the diesel engine know of expected load requirements. This DHC system map represents the vehicle-specific relationships between rpm’s, efficiency and torque. Since DHC means that the diesel engine only provides as much power as the machine actually needs at any given moment, diesel fuel consumption is reduced compared with current figures. Fuel savings of up to 20 percent as measured in real-life testing will reduce the total cost of ownership for operators with no sacrifice in EC dynamic response.

TWO LAYERS OF ASPHALT IN ONE SINGLE PASS Dynapac’s new Compactasphalt® 2500 provides costeffective solutions for placing 2 layers of asphalt in one single pass. Designed to be used with Dynapac’s DF145CS paver, the CM2500 module’s 2.55-meter (8.37 feet) width is ideal for applying the Compactasphalt® method on highways as well as motorways up to 7.5 meters (24 EC feet) wide. The Dynapac machine features an enlarged hopper for 310 binder material with a total capacity of 28 tons. Equipped with its own power unit, the module has a 15-ton hopper for the top layer material. This hopper features two augers, which allow the top layer material to be carried under the electrically heated VB5100TV-E screed. A second screed, Dynapac’s VB805TV Plus-E high compaction screed compacts the binder layer. Both screeds are synchronized in the case of slope and cross-slope changes. Because the Compactasphalt® 2500 simultaneously places both the wearing and binder courses - hot on hot - in a single pass, the result is a better interlocking of the courses that increases the durability of the layers. Furthermore, the residual heat of the hot binder course significantly increases the time available for final compaction.

A NAVIGATOR FOR THE PILE-DRIVER Orteco, pile-driver for guardrail and photovoltaic post installation machines producer, and Geotop “Control machine” specialist, are the actors of the join-venture aimed to develop Topcon satellite technology on pile drivers. Double advantage: in case of guardrails the optimisation of the work with the definition in real time of exact points in which piling the posts; in case of photovoltaic works the chance to stop the machine once reached the needed height. The “Topcon pile driver GPS system” for Orteco is composed by a palm top Topcon GRS-1, a receiver PGA-1, a tool for radio communication RH-1 Radio modem and a second GPS receiver located on a tripod (HiPer Base Receiver ). The first receiver, installed aligned with the hammer, catches the machine localisation signal and dials with the palm top software, to allow the second receiver to correct the metric error that a “used all alone GPS” normally has. The error is via radio communicated to the system installed on the machine and it immediately corrects the position, guaranteeing a precision in a range of 1cm. Afterwards the palm top GRS-1 has to be mounted on a truck, in order to detect piling points path, then it defines the overlap between the machine and piling points. Once “uploaded” the information, the tool can go back on the pile driver and the work can start. Using the monitor the operator knows exactly where to drive the machine and where to pile the post.

offer additional exhibition space to the product sections on ‘Formworks and Scaffolding’ and ‘Construction Equipment and Tools’ - both of these being in particularly high demand from exhibitors. Currently improvements are under way to the entrance situation on the northwest of the site, by building an entrance and registration building between the multi-storey car park on the northwest corner and Hall C1. For the first time, therefore, this will provide an additional, seventh entrance in time for bauma 2010, and that should help alleviate pressure on the very busy West Entrance. Another area in which improvements are being made is to visitor flow between the open-air sites to the north and south of Paul-Henri-Spaak-Strasse. It has been decided to close this road to traffic during the exhibition to make it even easier for visitors to pass between the two areas. In addition the earth banks which used to be in place along this road have now been levelled, to provide a better visual link between these two parts of the site.
