FPT On-Road Cursor GBVI Engines
FPT Industrial introduces the Cursor 9, Cursor 11, and Cursor 13 on-road engines to meet the GBVI emission standards that will be go into effect in China starting July 1, 2021. Each Cursor engine utilizes Ti-V (Titanium – Vanadium) aftertreatment technology which does not require parking or fuel injection use for regeneration, reducing downtime and fuel consumption for customers.
Features of the on-road Cursor GBVI engines include:
eVGT (Electronically-Controlled Variable Geometry Turbocharger) technology also included on Cursor 13 engine
VGT allows maximum torque up to 2,500 Nm (1,843.9 ft.-lb.) at speeds as low as 950 rpm, enabling full power when starting and accelerating
Utilizes FPT’s High-Efficiency SCR Aftertreatment System (HI-eSCR) to meet emissions regulations
Yokohama Galaxy LHD 510 SDS Traction Tire
Yokohama Off-Highway Tires releases the Galaxy LHD 510 SDS Traction Tire, delivering traction indoors and out with deep shoulder grooves connected across the tread face by S-lug channels and a rugged chip-and-chunk-resistant compound.
According to the company’s press release announcing the launch of the Galaxy LHD 510 SDS, it is a true traction tire, designed to provide substantially more grip in varying conditions than smooth tires can deliver. The deep grooves allow maneuverability in water or mud, while continuous S-lug channels ensure maximum traction by creating a horizontal pattern across the entire tread surface, . This helps prevent the tire from spinning on wet surfaces, the company said in its press release.
Features of the Galaxy LHD 510 SDS Traction Tire include:
Creel bead wires across the entire rim area
Available in the 20.5-25, 23.5-25, 26.5-25 and 29.5-29 sizes that are most common on wheel loaders
Maintains tight, uniform contact with the entire surface of the rim to turn the loader's torque into action, not rim slip
Designed with apertures for heat dissipation and cushion against external shocks
Bosch Rexroth Pre-Compensated Valve Platform
Bosch Rexroth launches the Pre-Compensated Valve Platform for use in mobile machines. Multiple valves can be combined into a single system which minimizes the need for adapter plates or custom finishes. Per the company’s press release announcing the launch of the valve platform, it helps to reduce installation time and service costs, as well as related costs for hydraulic system assembly, plumbing and fittings.
Three of Rexroth’s load-sensing directional control valves are incorporated into the platform:, the compact EDG directional control valve, the RM 10 and RM 15 load-sensing directional control valves, and the M4-12 control block.
Features of the valve platform include:
All valves in the platform support pre-compensated load-sensing capabilities to ensure proper hydraulic flow is delivered to each function, independent of overall loads on the hydraulic systems
Modular control concept in which a single solution can mix multiple valves, scaled by flow and pressure requirements, and seamlessly combine basic valves with highly featured ones
Load-sensing valves can also help reduce hydraulic cooling system size and costs, as well as potentially lower engine horsepower requirements
Xantrex Freedom e-GEN Lithium-Ion Battery-Based Power System
Xantrex introduces the Freedom e-GEN, a lithium-ion battery-based power system, offering a no-idle solution to the work truck market. Per Xantrex’s press release announcing the launch of the battery-based power system, the lithium-ion battery offers twice the power capacity in the same physical size of a traditional deep-cycle batter.
“The chief advantage of Freedom e-GEN system for the work truck market is no longer being tied to a portable generator or being required to idle your engine to power tools and equipment,” says Matt Wodecki, Freedom e-GEN Sales Director, in the company’s press release. “Freedom e-GEN provides virtually unlimited power to run job site tools, equipment and hotel loads for a significant amount of time without wasting fuel.”
Features of the Freedom e-GEN lithium-ion battery- based power system include:
Provides virtually unlimited power to run job site tools, equipment and hotel loads for a significant amount of time without wasting fuel
Supports charging from both a second alternator (included) and shore power, offering flexibility and fast recharging, and which is regulated by the Xantrex Intelligent Battery Management System (BMS)
Pre-engineered for fast, reliable plug and play installation
