sales GG 2017 PROJECT AME The world’s first 3D-printed excavator, dubbed Project AME, was unveiled at CONEXPO-CON/AGG & IFPE 2017. Project AME was a key piece being show-cased during the massive trade show’s first-ever Tech Experience, a 75,000-square foot area offering interactive experienc-es and showcasing future innovations. Project AME was developed at the Oak Ridge National Laboratory’s Manufactur-ing Demonstration Facility in Knoxville, Tenn. to create and assemble three com-ponents: the cab where the operator sits, the boom (a large hydraulically articulated arm) and a heat exchanger. A consortium of research teams that are part of the Cen-ter for Compact and Efficient Fluid Power contributed additional design and engi-neering work for the project. big feeder volume, large screening areas and high stockpile capacities allow very productive operations as in-line or stand-alone unit. The H4 features a hybrid diesel-electric drive concept that guarantees eco-nomic fuel consumption, and the recently introduced full-hybrid version H4e even allows full electric operation through mains or an external gen set. PROJECT AME SECONDARY STAGE CRUSHER Sandvik held the North American launch of its new stationary cone crusher, the CS550, at CONEXPO. The CS550 is a powerful secondary stage crusher for 700 to 750-tonne applications. Sandvik has completely eliminated plastic backing materials in the crushing chamber and substantially improved the maintenance ergonomics, similar to other Sandvik cone crushers. The standard automatic setting regulation system optimizes crusher oper-ation for efficiency and adapts to variations in feed conditions by means of continuous liner wear measurement and compensa-tion. The Hydroset system provides au-tomatic hydraulically powered mainshaft positioning and overload protection to permit the passage of uncrushables. KOMATSU HYBRID EXCAVATOR Komatsu introduced its newest hybrid ex-cavator at CON-EXPO. The 36 ton-class HB365LC-3 uses a 100 per cent electric swing motor, which captures and stores swing deceleration energy, saving the hydraulic power for the boom, arm and bucket. Hybrid control logic improves productivity by increasing boom up and arm out multifunction speed. The HB365LC-3’s 269-HP engine meets EPA Tier 4 Final certified requirements by us-ing a Komatsu diesel particulate filter and selective catalyst reduction system with diesel exhaust fluid. KEESTRACK COMPACT ENGINE Deutz unveiled its new four-cylinder TCD 5.0 and TCD 9.0 diesel engines and six-cylinder TCD 12.0, TCD 13.5 and TCD 18.0 engines to the North American mar-ket. The TCD 5.0 engine, a brand-new de-sign with minimum pipework and fewer components for less complexity and main-tenance, will be introduced worldwide in 2019 to meet the next EU Stage V emis-sions and U.S. Tier 4 Final. The TCD 5.0 is a compact, turbocharged and charge-air-cooled, five-cubic-litre, 135-200-HP die-sel engine, which produces more power from smaller cubic capacity. www.deutzamericas.comng HYBRID CONE CRUSHER Keestrack featured its new H4 Cone Crush-er at CON-EXPO. The light, compact plant is fully automated to produce up to 250 tph at maximum feed sizes of 7 in. The plant can be optionally equipped with a pre-screen with fines chute and – as a world’s first – with a highly efficient three-deck secondary screen module with recycling conveyor for closed-circuit processing.
