The plasma-cutting department at Laurini Officine Meccaniche
Italian company Laurini Officine Meccaniche is prototyping new sizes of its best-selling machine, the Vulcano 2.0, a self-propelled radio-controlled vibrating screen on a tracked vehicle.
Well known in the pipeline and earthmoving machinery sector, the company says it will officially present the launch in April 2017.
Vulcano Smart and Vulcano XXL will be the two new models expanding the Vulcano 2.0 range, that already has 100 units at work at sites around the world, to respond effectively to the needs in relation to the type and size of the project.
Compact and portable, and without special permits, the shipping width of 2.5m and weight of 21,000kg, means the Vulcano Smart is ideal for small and medium construction sites, says Lorini. It has a volume of production as high as 200m³/hour thanks to the Caterpillar C4.4 engine.
The Vulcano XXL offers greater performance in terms of production of up to 300m³/hour, and is said to be perfect for large products, with a shipping width of 3.5m and, weight of 30,000kg. It uses a Caterpillar C7.1 engine.
“The evolving modern society in which we live needs more highly specialised machinery all the time,” says Marco Laurini, chairman of Laurini Officine Meccaniche.
“A company like ours, that lives and breathes technological innovation, cannot fail to thrive in a setting like this. What is changing is not so much the way of production, but rather the way of engineering our products using the targeted new tools available to rationalise costs, optimise performance and improve the safety of the workplace.”
