Doosart DA40 ADT takes on all terrain
Doosan Infracore Construction Equipment has launched its DA40 articulated dump truck, which offers increased engine power and torque, higher payloads, lower fuel consumption, enhanced operator comfort and faster travel speeds. Its permanent six-wheel drive gives equal power distribution, and the free-swinging rear tandem bogie and special articulation system are ideal in difficult terrain.
Powered by a six-cylinder interim Tier 4 compliant diesel engine with a gross power output of 500 horsepower at 2,100 rpm, the DA40 offers a 10% increase in engine power compared to the previous ?G41 model. It offers a 22% increase in gross torque to 1750 Ib. -ft. at 1,300 rpm.
Also in the mix are efficient fuel consumption and a higher top speed of 36 mph. The DA40 has an increased body capacity of 3 1 .9 cubic yards, and payload has been boosted to 40 metric tons without tailgate.
A new, spacious cab provides better visibility for the operator and low noise levels, while new electronic systems and simplified fingertip controls with a digital display make operation easier.
Meteo DNA expands to mining and construction
Metso DNA recently introduced new control applications to make energy, pulp and paper - and now mining and construction industries - more user-friendly, productive and profitable.
Metso is the first to introduce embedded machine condition and runability monitoring within process controls. Also on offer are new control applications, such as winder controls, power plant turbine controls and machine condition monitoring.
Scalable Metso DNA automation systems adapt to diverse mining and construction industry needs, from single-machine controls to plant-wide automation and information management systems.
One product, a new crushing plant control room solution, connects crushers and screens, ensuring the effective management of the entire plant from a pleasant and safe control room. Automatic controls stabilize the process and allow the operators to monitor the plant as a whole.
Machine condition monitoring has been developed for the condition monitoring of rotating machines such as flue gas fans, feed water pumps and turbines.
