Construction equipment market is back with a bang

We see an immense focus on infrastructure (roads, airports, ports, smart city projects, etc) and industrial projects.

We expect to strengthen ties with our existing customers

The industry seems to be gradually moving out of the sluggishness. The impetus of the new infrastructure projects seems to have come in at an opportune time and soon we shall see the much-needed vibrancy in this high potential industry

Crushers & Screens| High on Demand

With infrastructure and construction sector on fast-track, especially road sector, aggregate processing has become essential to support the construction activities with a matching pace.

The Road Ahead

In spite of the government's policy shift towards building four- and six-lane National Highways as concrete roads, plans to construct more rural roads and coastal roads will drive the demand for asphalt plants in the future. EQUIPMENT INDIA explores the road ahead for asphalt plants.

Buoyant Future

An unprecedented and the highest-ever, $1 trillion has been earmarked for investment in infrastructure development by Government of India in the current Five-Year Plan period (2012-17). Speeding along the guidelines set forth by the government, the infrastructure construction activity is rapidly growing in roads and highways, bridges, airports and power, while realty sector is yet to catch up.

We plan to develop new products like jaw crushers, cone crushers and mobile plants.

We do not sell standard plants as we consider each crushing or screening task as different from the other. We aim to offer custom-built plants which will make us a cut above the others. Also, we are tapping export markets in certain areas, which keeps us busy in the present market conditions, says VP Mundra, Director, Core Crushing Equipments.

We are developing mobile, compatible plants and conveyors

Our service engineers are well trained in all aspects of the equipment on hand and also on the processing side of the plant to help achieve optimum performance, says Ravi Thakur, Managing Director, Amarshiva.

Haver & Boecker, Major Wire tie up

Germany?s Haver & Boecker, Ontario-based W.S. Tyler Canada, and Montreal-based Major Wire Industries have reached an agreement to establish a global screening alliance starting January 2012.

Nawa has been a prime mover in CSE industry since 1998

Track-mounted crushing, screening and conveying equipment are some of the latest innovations in this industry. Nawa will also be introducing this machinery in 2012 in India totally manufactured in Nawa plants.

Going Mobile

Proman joins hands with Tesab, Sweden to offer a full line of tracked and wheeled crushers and screens.

We hope to double our size in the next three years

Our manufacturing range includes around 15,000 products and we would be making avaiable a minimum of 33 per cent of the above range to our channel partners,? says Nishant Vora, Director, ZWZ Bearings India. 0 - - 13801 14 187 2011-02-01 00:00:00.000 Equipment India Designed for harsh environments

Fluke introduces ScopeMeter 190 series II portable oscilloscopes engineered for harsh industrial environments.

Fluke Corporation, the global leader in portable electronic test and measurement technology, has introduced the Fluke ScopeMeter 190 Series II handheld portable oscilloscopes, the first four-channel scopes designed for harsh industrial environments. These new portable scopes are the first safety rated scopes for CAT III 1000 V/CAT IV 600 V environments. The four input channels are completely isolated from each other to perform differential floating measurements, a critical consideration for troubleshooting fixed-installation three-phase power electronic devices like variable speed motor drives.

The Fluke ScopeMeter chassis is sealed from the environment with no cooling slots or fans to expose the instrument. It carries the International Protection (IP) -51 dust and drip proof rating so it?s tough enough to use safely on the factory floor and in the field. While most high-performance oscilloscopes are not designed to withstand dirty and harsh environments, the Fluke ScopeMeter is built tough to deliver accurate results where ordinary portable oscilloscopes dare not go.

The Fluke 190 series II oscilloscope meets the growing need for four-channel portable oscilloscopes in industrial environments. Power electronics are used increasingly in solar and wind energy generation and to maximise efficiency or reduce power consumption especially in heavy-duty electro-mechanical applications. With the new Fluke 190 Series II ScopeMeter, users can see more and fix more using all four channels.

Their fast sampling rate, up to 2.5 GS/sec and 400 picosecond resolution, helps users capture electrical noise and other disturbances to diagnose exactly what is going on. With 100 MHz and 200 MHz models, they deliver the bandwidth needed to cover both today?s needs, and tomorrow?s. With four channels, users can inspect input signals, output signals, feedback loops, or safety interlocks simultaneously to solve problems like:

? Signal amplitude or shape variations, induced noise or disturbances across critical circuit nodes.
? Signal timing measurements and synchronisation issues.
? Attenuation, fluctuation, drift as a result of impedance issues or environmental impacts.

Four channels are indispensable in testing variable speed motor drives and inverter power electronic technology used in green energy generation and transportation applications.

Users can:

? View and measure harmonics, transients, and loads in three-phase power systems.
? Troubleshoot DC to AC converters for faulty insulated-gate bipolar transistors (IGBTs) and control circuits.
? View and measure pulse width modulated waveforms (PWM) for reflections and transients.

These new test tools are convenient and user-friendly. New, high-performance Li-Ion battery technology keeps the Series II ScopeMeter on the job for up to seven hours. An external charger and easy-access battery door makes it simple to swap batteries and extend usage. Two USB ports, electrically isolated from measurement input circuits, make it easy to capture and share waveforms. Users can conveniently store data to a USB memory device or easily connect to a PC via the USB port and transfer waveforms or screen images for data analysis or archive.

Recently, the second unit of the 1.600 t heavy lift offshore crane MTC 78000 was delivered from its manufacturing plant in Rostock, by Liebherr. Despite its size, the MTC 78000 has been designed as a slewing crane and is supported by traditional large-diameter anti-friction bearings. With a weight of 70 t, the swing ring has a diameter of approximately 9 m. The manufacturing of such large mechanical parts can only be accomplished through complicated custom processes like conventional gear cutting machines which are only available for large-diameter anti-friction bearings up to a diameter of 5 m. Therefore, Liebherr has acquired correspondingly sized machines and equipment specifically for the mechanical machining of these flanges. The assembly of the MTC 78000 required several spectacular heavy duty lifts. First, the slewing platform was mounted?at 370 t, the heaviest of the components. Thereafter, the machinery compartment with the drive components (approximately 240 t), the mast lower section (about 250 t) and the mast upper section (around 160 t) of which the lowest point needed to be hoisted up to over 43 m above the pier level. This hoisting height was made possible by equipping the mobile harbour cranes with two corresponding tower extensions. The MTC 78000 is one of the biggest offshore slewing cranes worldwide. With a maximum dynamic torque of 78,000 mt, the MTC 78000 is the most powerful machine within the extensive range of cranes and material handling machines offered by the Liebherr group of companies. Four units of the new heavy-lift crane have already been ordered to date.
