Excon in Bangalore is one of the biggest trade fairs for construction equipment and technology in the region, and DEUTZ AG presented its comprehensive portfolio of engines for use in the construction equipment sector there for the first time. From 23 to 27 November 2011, Excon's 160,000 m² of exhibition space showcased the latest developments in the construction industry, focusing on products, equipment and technologies. DEUTZ, a global manufacturer of low-emission diesel engines, is also a thoroughly reliable partner when it comes to drive systems for the construction equipment sector and, at Excon 2011, placed the robust, reliable and efficient engines which the Indian market needs center stage.
Generating 58 kW at a maximum torque of 273 Nm, the four-cylinder D914 L4 induction engine covers the lower power output range of the engines being exhibited. Thanks to their legendary design, air-cooled DEUTZ engines can be used anywhere in the world under the most demanding conditions and can be run on high sulphur-content fuels. Few servicing points and long maintenance intervals also ensure low operating costs and excellent reliability.
DEUTZ rounds off the lower power output range with the company's popular construction equipment engine from the 2011 series which has proven its worth a million times over. Generating 74.9 kW, the four-cylinder TCD 2011 L4 W engine achieves maximum torque of 350 Nm and, thanks to its impressive performance, is one of the most successful engines in its power category. A further attractive feature of the compact water-cooled TCD 2011 is its first-class reliability and impressive power to weight ratio. Possessing the smallest design volume of its class, this engine also offers the greatest installation flexibility.
For the medium power spectrum, the DEUTZ portfolio includes the TCD 2013 L6 2 V. Generating 200 kW, this water-cooled six-cylinder in-line engine achieves a maximum torque of 1,050 Nm. Thanks to its excellent fuel consumption, simple and inexpensive installation and long service intervals, this powerful and sturdy engine is highly cost-effective and promises high efficiency levels. The power take-off options integral to the gear drive and the slim engine design reduce the installation costs of the TCD 2013 and extend the range of its potential applications.
Generating 360 kW at a maximum torque of 2,080 Nm, the TCD 2015 V6 powerpack achieves the highest power output range of the engines being exhibited. This powerpack, consisting of the engine and cooling system with self-supporting frame, is impressively compact and is one of the most space-saving designs on the market. The very latest, electronically controlled injection system ensures low fuel consumption and great cost-effectiveness.
By exhibiting at Excon for the first time, DEUTZ is emphasizing the strategic importance of the Indian market. In the spring of this year the company's engine portfolio had already aroused a great deal of interest at BC India in Mumbai. DEUTZ is now represented in India by a DEUTZ subsidiary in Pune and a strong dealership network.
