Paving a New Road in the World of Construction– Caterpillar PM102 Cold Planer
There is unprecedented construction boom across India. The Government is fast sanctioning new infrastructure projects in road, air, and port sectors. And the emphasis is on completing these projects on time and matching international standards. One of the leading players enabling India to achieve this goal is Caterpillar–the world’s leading manufacturer of construction and mining equipment, diesel and natural gas engines and industrial gas turbines.

With its fleet of road construction equipment and a strong dealer network spread across the country, Caterpillar is helping give shape to mega road construction projects. One of itsmost advanced and sophisticated milling machine is the Cat® PM 102 Cold Planer. It has proved its worth in some of the tough conditions across the world. InIndia, the machine has been an excellent performer.

Introduced in 2006 in India, the Cat® PM102 (1000 mm drum width) has produced the results for Classic Network Pvt. Ltd. Everyday, the machine worked for 8-10 hours, cutting hard asphalt approximately 200-250 sq.m per hour at 70-100 mm depth of cut.Mr. Smit Patel, Managing Director of Classic Network, says “Thanks to Caterpillar & GMMCO team (a dealer of Caterpillar) for providing all the necessary inputs on our milling job during commissioning providing excellent product support.”

The machine was successful indelighting the site engineers with its performance and the service support it got from Caterpillar. “We are very happy with GMMCO’s product support. GMMCO & Caterpillar are taking all efforts to ensure the machine reliability & performance, “says Mr. Smit Patel.The spare parts were stocked near to the job site & GMMCO’s factory trained service engineers ensured the availability andperformance of the machine. Kaluram, Machine Operator of Cat® PM102 milling machine , adds, GMMCO service engineers keep visiting the site regularly to check the health of the machine. I call Mr. Rajesh Chiddarwar, India Paving Segment Manager at Caterpillar & GMMCO engineers even during midnight in case I face any operation/maintenance related issue and they respond to me very positively.

”Even under demanding conditions, the Cat® PM102 can show amazing performance. Thehigh travel speed of the Cat® PM102 reduces repositioning times and machine transfer on the jobsite.

Its anti-stall device automatically changes the machine’s working speed to accommodate variation in road surface hardness. "The accuracy and finishing of cut is excellent & the machine is fast" say site engineers. The Cat® PM102 is designed to provide comfort for machine operator too. Its ergonomic design of the operator station emphasizes comfort, visibility and easy operation. The controls provided are grouped and conveniently located to enhance operator productivity and reduce fatigue. Highly impressed Kaluram adds, “Operation of this machine is very simple. The operating controls are located very conveniently.

”An efficient anti-slab device, high capacity collecting and loading conveyors and high-penetration cutting tools add to the Cat® PM102’s productivity. Caterpillar’s quick release conical tool holders significantly reduce maintenance time. Its well-engineered water spray system effectively wets cutting tools and controls dust within the rotor chamber.

The Cat® PM102 (17,600 kg operating weight, 1000 mm drum width) milling machine offers several advantages. It is available with either track or wheel undercarriage. Thus customer can choose to purchase the type of undercarriage that best meets their application needs. The Cat® C7 engine (225hp) with ACERTTM Technology meets the latest US Tier 3 and EU Stage IIIA emission regulations. Caterpillar’s hydraulically actuated, electronic unit injection system delivers improved fuel economy, faster hot/ cold start and better high amplitude performance.

Flush cutting operation with hydraulic control allows the Cat® PM102 to be used up close to a curb, wall or guard rail. A drive train protection device protects rotor drive system, rotor & tools by instantly disengaging rotor drive whenever an abrupt drop in rotor rpm occurs due to manhole covers, pipeline, etc. Two cutting speed ensures cutting of different & toughest material with sizing requirement. Grade & Slope sensors provide precise control of rotor to a preset cutting depth and cross slope.

Machine design maximizes visibility on all sides. A large graphic digital display easily visible in direct sunlight provides operating parameters for machine & engine diagnostics.

Computerized monitoring system monitors the hydraulic system and engine condition with multiple modes of operation. It alerts the operator if a problem does occur with three levels of event information. The power assisted engine hood opens wide and provides exceptional access to the engine, hydraulic pumps and daily service points. Hydraulic rotor service door provides convenient access to the rotor for easy cutting tool removal and replacement and water spray nozzles inspection.
