Volvo Construction Equipment used its extensive display at the show to demonstrate its commitment to improving fuel consumption and lowering emissions in its products – and also to underline the company’s expanding product, manufacturing and distribution capabilities.
The star of the show was a pair of the latest Volvo excavators – the EC140BLC Prime and the EC210B Prime ; the latter specially adapted for work in granite, marble & aggregates quarry applications. These excavators are powered by Volvo engine and engineered to match the hydraulic for superior excavator performance. EC140B Prime comes with the bucket capacity of 0.52/0.57/0.75 Cu.m and operating weight of 14 tons where as EC210B has bucket capacity of 0.85/0.92/1.22 Cu.m and operating weight 22 ton. Both the models are equipped with correct boom/arm/bkt configuration and undercarriage to suit the tough site conditions and delivers 20-25% more productivity and economical in terms of Tons / Litres.
Volvo provided the full range of road building equipment – Hydraulic Excavators, Wheel loaders, Motor Graders, Soil and Asphalt Compactors, Pneumatic Tyre Rollers and Paver Finishers. This show was featured with display of two types of road machineries – ABG 4361 Paver Finisher and DD 80 model Asphalt Compactor.
ABG 4361 is the virtual partner in paving business of every road construction company - A result of optimum Owning cost, High degree of Paving quality and Ease of operation and transportation. It is extremely versatile in operation with paving width that can be continuously varied from 2.5m to 4.75m, with the extensions up to 5.5.m with add-on segments and can pave up to 300 mm thickness.
Volvo DD 80 Asphalt Compactor provided with multi layer thickness capability with 8 amplitude settings ensuring faster compaction. Its automatic reversal of eccentrics matches the direction of travel for smooth mat finish, combined with higher dynamic linear loads to achieve densities with minimum passes.
L120F is powered by fuel efficient Volvo engine and engineered to match the drive train and hydraulics for superior wheel loader performance. The engine develops high torque at low rpm enabling excellent load carrying capabilities’ at low engine speed thus saving on fuel consumption.Volvo’s patented lift arm system TP Linkage combines high breakout force and excellent parallel movement throughout the entire lifting range.
Volvo also used this platform to highlight its extensive portfolio of products and services that are designed to support the range of machines. Emphasizing on the benefits of Genuine Volvo Parts in servicing and maintenance duties, the Volvo stand promoted the introduction of Reman Hydraulic components into the Indian market.
Volvo has recently invested in a new factory Remanufactured Component Centre in Bangalore whose technicians expertly restore a range of components to an often better-than-new standard (‘Better’ because components are upgraded to the latest iteration of that unit’s development). The facility allows users of Volvo construction equipment to have their used components renovated at a lower cost than buying new and consuming far less new materials and energy. This program is a natural extension of Volvo’s commitment towards a greener environment. In short, Volvo Reman is the economical, convenient and reliable way to maximize uptime and extend the service life of the machine.
Another highlight at Volvo stand was a CareTrack – Volvo’s telematics system that allows remote monitoring and machine diagnostics on all general purpose machines – which is now available in India as standard and comes with a free three-year subscription. While CareTrack offers customer a number of advantages, a primary one is the ability to effectively manage machine maintenance, servicing and repair through the system’s ability to ‘see’ how the machine is performing, Genuine Volvo Parts and CareTrack are both proving useful in maintaining machinery in optimal condition and achieving maximized uptime.
