New paver range from Dynapac
Dynapac has announced a new range of tracked asphalt pavers with new features designed to appeal to owners, operators and service crews as well as offering environmental benefits.
The range comprises 6 tracked asphalt pavers, with a working width from 2 m to 14 m and will be available from January 2011.
There are two conventionally controlled pavers, F2500 C & F2500 CS, and four plc-controlled pavers SD2500 C / SD2500 CS / SD2550 C / SD2550 CS to provide contractors with a range to best meet their requirements as contractors, local government or rental companies around the world. They will replace the existing series.
A key feature is the slidable operator´s platform on SD-series and the safe-impact-system as an option for improved and safe docking of truck. All pavers have the option of larger and wider hoppers, wider conveyors and slimmer auger drives, which lead to a smooth material transport through the paver with less segregation and excellent paving results. The new models, equipped with screed, have a total weight of 18.5 t to 19.6 t.
The full range benefits from design features to make service and maintenance quick and easy, ensuring maximum availability of the pavers with less downtime. Service is made simpler concentrating pumps to one side and reducing the number of hydraulic couplings to reduced the risk of leaks. Each of the new models is powered by a Cummins QSB 6.7 water-cooled turbo-diesel engine.
Operator comfort has been improved by ensuring continuous visibility of the operation and comfortable access to the controls as well as sight over all working areas.
A clear and newly designed control panel gives operators the vital information and, on the SD-series, the operator can set and amend operation parameters through a simple menu procedure.
For environmental benefits, all models feature an eco-mode, which produces less noise, especially to the operator’s platform. Noise is also kept down through the use of a hydraulically driven temperature-controlled cooling fan.
New access platforms from Genie for demanding applications
Terex Aerial Work Platforms has introduced its new Genie S-3200 and S-3800 telescopic booms to meet the demands of the Asian shipbuilding market. The Genie booms are being manufactured exclusively at the new Terex Aerial Work Platforms factory located in Changzhou, China.
“Our new booms, customized for harsh environments such as shipbuilding, are just the beginning of our strategy to reach out to the Asian marketplace with engineered products to meet our customers’ unique needs,” said XS Koo, Asia Pacific Vice President and Managing Director, Terex AWP.
Salt air, heavy oxidation, weld slag, cutting debris and constant usage make the shipyard one of the harshest environments for a boom lift. “The Genie booms were designed specifically to address these demands and the result is a product that offers excellent performance in this type of application,” said Frank Schneider, Senior Product Manager, Terex AWP. The booms will be used for manufacturing, repairing and refurbishing ships, primarily targeting medium to large shipyards with applications ranging from 18 m - 36.5 m (60 ft – 120 ft).
A new platform design offers rugged features such as high-strength steel tubing, pinch rails, padded bumpers, steel mesh, a new heavy-duty foot switch and a steel platform rotator shield. The new control box features joystick guards to facilitate operating the boom; an easy-to-use, sealed and tough control box cover; and an angled control box lid to prevent the accumulation of debris.
The enclosed cable and hose track is mounted on top of the boom to withstand the rigours of typical shipyard usage and prevent impact damage common in the shipyard. Steel covers prevent damage to hoses and cable, and all exterior hoses and cables have fire-resistant sleeves.
