What's New In Plant & Equipment
2015 Cobra delivers more efficient operations
Atlas Copco introduces it’s 2015 range of Cobra PROe and TTe petrol breakers. The percussion mechanism delivers engine power with minimum losses to the tool tip, resulting in impact energy of 60 Joules (PRO version), respectively 40 Joules (TT version).
Both versions are now available with 25 x 108 mm shank sizes. This new shank size makes the Cobras shorter and lighter, and vibrations are minimised even further.
Customers can perform better when they use a machine that fits their needs – especially in situations where every centimetre counts. Using the right size for every operation helps the operator get more done in less time
says the product line manager Oleg Korobotchkine.
The redesigned models have up to 10% less vibrations than earlier models. With the improved Atlas Copco hand-arm protection system (HAPS), operators can work longer and stay well within limits of recommended health and safety standards
The petrol version can use alkylate petrol, thereby exposing the operator to less armful exhausts.
C Series Portable Counting Scales
Counting parts that are tiny and lightweight can be a time-consuming ordeal that is susceptible to human error. Cardinal Scale’s new C series digital counting scales are ideal for inventory counting when mobility and high accuracy is a must at outdoor applications, mobile workstations, or rental fleets.
The new C series portable counting scales are available in 6 lb/3 kg, 30 lb/15 kg, and 65 lb/30 kg capacities and feature a built-in rechargeable battery pack (standard), up to 99 stored product look ups (9 direct PLU quick keys), sturdy stainless steel platform, piece counts with known and unknown weight samples, backlit bright blue LCD, preset weight and quantity limits with audible beep alerts, and weight accumulator mode.
These durable counting scales offer a full keypad to enter and recall known piece weights and tare weights, metric conversion, 1/300,000 counting resolution, bubble level, and non-skid feet for stability.
The rugged design of the C series allows for reliable weighing in almost any environment, and withstands frequent movement from one area of a factory to another.
It is possible to quickly count multiple inventory parts and 15,000 weight divisions makes them capable of counting the smallest of parts.
New Portable Air-Cooled Generator Range
Atlas Copco has launched a new QEP range of portable air-cooled generators for the construction industry. The three models – QEP, QEP-R and QEP-S – are designed and built to deliver long-term reliability under the toughest working conditions.
Each of the three models is available in both diesel and petrol versions. With power ratings of 3-12 kVA (petrol engines) and 4-9 kVA (diesel engines), it is easy for construction professionals to select the QEP unit that meets the requirements of their specific worksite.
Daniel Escuer, Product Marketing Manager Atlas Copco Portable Energy says:
The quality components and sturdy construction makes the QEP your predictable power partner on any worksite. The units deliver a low total cost of ownership and extreme reliability. They are safe and easy to handle in daily operations.
The petrol models all come with a large fuel tank, a protective top cover, engine oil guard, sockets, thermal protection and recoil start as standard. The QEP-R also includes AVR, electric start and an insulation monitoring relay.
The QEP-S includes a soundproof canopy to minimize noise levels for worksites in residential or noise-sensitive areas.
