Breaking Power at Bauma China 2008


Dec 15, 2008, Beijing, China

Atlas Copco is going to introduce the SB 302, a new mid-sized model of the small breaker range at Bauma China. This breaker is suitable for excavators of up to 9 tonnes. Additionally the company is going to put it´s world´s largest series hydraulic breaker, the HB 10000 ProCare, on display. And this year´s product launch from the medium breaker series, the MB 1500 will be exhibited as well.
The new SB 302 is following the new generation of solid body breakers. The first products out of this range have been launched three years ago. The new generation is based on a new manufacturing method and a new body design. Thord Wikström, Product Line Manager says: “One of the most important features in the new design of our 300 kg breaker is the floating bushing which makes service and maintenance really easy. The new SB 302 brings many advantages to the operator such as higher impact rate thanks to its higher efficiency. Compared with previous models, the new body design generates lower vibrations and less noise to meet the high expectations of our customers.”
The new SB 302 is as tough and reliable as the other breakers in the SB range. Wikström continues: “A solid body breaker is machined from a single block of metal. This method provides a number of benefits, such as no side or head bolts and a unique resistance to bending forces and operator abuse. Another advantage is fewer parts and less maintenance.”
The new medium breaker MB 1500 was designed rejecting everything that was not needed and came up with a straightforward product requiring practically no maintenance. The breaker operates without a high-pressure accumulator, substantially reducing the number of moving components. But essential and clever details such as the StartSelect allowing the start-up and shutdown behaviour of the breaker to be adapted to the specific application characteristics, or the AutoControl ensuring maximum percussion power under all operating conditions, have been included.
Atlas Copco´s  HB 10000 ProCare is going to overlook the scenery: the largest serial hydraulic breaker in the world is going to be displayed in China for the first time. A service weight of ten metric tons and up to 50% higher productivity compared to it´s predecessor, the HB 7000, represent major steps toward a new market segment: the use of hydraulic breakers as cost-efficient production machines for primary breaking and as a true alternative to drilling and blasting.
Petrol driven handheld breakers, pneumatic breakers and drills, as well as handheld hydraulic equipment will complete the product range of Atlas Copco Construction Tools.
Under the headline “The road to productivity” the whole Atlas Copco Group booth and the neighbouring Dynapac booth will jointly focus on customer´s needs. Visitors will find the booth in the outdoor area, stand No E44/F45.
