Rollouts — June 2010
Atlas Copco says its new ROC T35M drill rig features the COP 1840 rock drill with 18 kW of drilling power to drill holes ranging from 2.5 to 4 inches in diameter to a depth of 82 feet. Powered by a Cummins QSB 6.7 Tier III engine rated at 190 horsepower and 2,300 revolutions per minute, the rig matches percussion power and feed to the rock. The unit features a carousel with rocker switch rotation and single joystick control. The carousel can handle up to six, 12-foot rods plus a 14-foot starter rod.
Leica Geosystems says its next-generation, cutting-edge, Leica PowerDigger 3D guidance system for excavators is the result of many years of experience in developing machine-control systems. Its PowerSnap concept allows users to seamlessly swap the panels between laser, slope, and three-dimensional machine control as the job demands. The control panel has a rugged housing and is equipped with a 7-inch, full-color touch screen that takes the user through the installation, setup, and operating modes at a glance. The system also features built-in dredging and volume calculations.
Doran Manufacturing says its new Doran 360CE tire pressure monitoring system is designed for use with commercial equipment used in mining, construction, and earth moving applications. Installation and programming of the digital LCD display and valve-mounted sensors can be accomplished in less than an hour and require no special tools. The in-cab display system provides real-time monitoring for up to 36 wheel positions.
The Core Systems Design program from Superior Industries offers drive- and tail-pulley assemblies custom-engineered for a specific application. Each assembly is delivered as a pre-assembled package, which eliminates assembly cost and reduces installment time. The shaft on each assembly is protected by a specially developed rust prevention treatment.
John Deere Power Systems’ PowerTech PVX 9.0L and PowerTech PSX 9.0L engine models are the first of their off-highway 75-horsepower and above engines to be certified by the Environmental Protection Agency and European Union as compliant with Interim Tier 4 and Stage III B regulations.
Durable mining tire
Titan Tire Corp. says its second generation 007 MFT mining tire features a new belt package that provides a more durable design through changes to the compounds in the tread and base, which help reduce overall heat generation and improve cut, chip, and wear characteristics. The steel was removed from the sidewalls to provide better durability.
