Innovative technology for construction market in China


Shanghai, China, September 2, 2011: Atlas Copco launched the "Street Dragon" series diesel/motor-driven portable air compressors on its new product release conference. It is reported the "Street Dragon" range includes four models, developped mainly for powering various handheld pneumatic tools and equipments (pneumatic cutters, grinding machines, pumps and spray guns), as well as many other involved construction fields, like rescue work, shipbuilding, pipeline work and civil construction.

Over 80 people were invited to the conference, including Mr. John Hort, Vice President of Atlas Copco Portable Energy Division, Mr. Thierry Leder, General Manager of Atlas Copco (Shanghai) Trading Co., Ltd., Mr. Eric Langmans, General Manager of Atlas Copco (Wuxi) Compressor Co., Ltd. and our customer and dealer representatives. “We have been focusing on the Chinese market for years, and we are quite pleased to provide sustainable productivity to the Chinese construction market with our business partners.”said John Hort at the conference.

As a well-known global industrial group, Atlas Copco is taking the leading position globally in the markets of compressor, expander, air treatment system, construction and mining equipment, power tool and assembly system. Meanwhile, Atlas Copco is continuously striving to provide more convenient and complete solutions and services to local customers in China, and it keeps upgrading and expanding its business in China. In 2008, Atlas Copco established Atlas Copco(Wuxi) R&D Center Corporation in China, evolving the product strategy in China from local production to local design.As a result of the strategy evolution, the new "Street Dragon" series was designed by Wuxi R&D Center and produced locally, with support from an expert group in Belgium headquarter.

It is known that the "Street Dragon" series portable air compressors consist of 4 models, based on the reputed traditional design of Atlas Copco portable air compressors. Apart from the well-known advantages such as long service span and high stability, these compressors were tested to be efficient and energy-saving, and are superior to any other congeneric products with regard to noise and durability, etc. Taking advantage of advanced technologies such as forced water-cooled four-cylinder diesel engine, direct fuel injection and gear driving system, the diesel-driven XA 67/87 Wd portable air compressors afford high energy efficiency to users. Meanwhile, they are cost effective, fuel-saving, durable and reliable, while comply with China National II Emission Standard. The 2 models are equipped with high-damping shock absorbers and optimized pipelines, reducing vibration and noise, avoiding excessive pipe strain and improve the reliability and service life. In addition, rotation speed of the diesel engine and the opening/closing of the screw rotor’s intake valve can be simultaneously adjusted continuously, giving off 0-100% flexible air volume range. This ensure the synchronization between air consumption and engine speed, so customers get always the best fuel efficiency and lowest operational costs.

The other two electric motor-driven portable air compressors XA 57/77 E are both belt driven, to give the customers handy service and low cost. Moreover, these 2 motor-driven portable air compressors gives further advantages like easy wiring, extra wire safety by use of a wire fixing plate, as well as high efficiency and stability, low noise level etc.

With the establishment of the 4th business area Construction Technique, Atlas Copco has become more focused on global especially China’s construction market, giving more focused availability and serviceability. Launch of the Street Dragon series is only a start point of Atlas Copco to afford our Chinese customers in construction field innovative technologies and sustainable productivities.
