In case youre now wondering what 3D and VRML or actually x3D has to do with excavators that is something we will be getting to in other articles for right now youll just have to trust that there is a fit. For now however lets get back to excavators the digging machines used for but not limited to: Digging demolition minning river dredging heavy lifting and with hydraulic attachments brush cutting. It is these same hydraulic attachments that have expanded the use of excavators far beyond their original use of excavation such as the Low-energy Planetary Excavator (LPE) proposed by NASA. The latest paper to be found on this Nasa proposal is for 2006 so the current status can only be guessed at nevertheless the concept is certainly intriguing as are the LPEs possible commercial applications.
Moving on the to the possible non-NASA commercial application it can be said that the same qualities of the LPE that apply to space would also attract terrestrial users or said differently us earth bound creatures. As both business and government markets rapidly expand so does the need for urban infrastructure. Using NASAs own words on the subject; Urban construction settings restrict the use of explosives to minimize damaging vibrations making mechanical methods attractive. In addition shallow tunnel construction is rapidly changing from cut-and-cover to wholly underground because excavations disrupt city traffic. Coupled with increasing population these factors enhance the market for innovatively flexible systems such as the LPE. If I could have said it better than NASA did I would have. But I couldnt so I didnt. Anyway there you have it both the past of excavators and a look at their future with the development of the Low-energy Planetary Excavator
Whether a construction project is big or small an excavator is an important tool that companies should have. An excavator is a tracked vehicle with a bucket in front and an approximate operating weight of 0.7 - 7.5 tons. The bucket that is seen in front of the tracked vehicle tilts to dig out a particular area. For bigger projects a full size excavator is used to perform the job. However for those areas where it is difficult for full size excavator to access a mini excavator is used. Mini excavators are very mobile and are suitable for this kind of construction projects. Nowadays most companies favor mini excavators because of its mobility and flexibility. It can easily be maneuvered to reach a narrow part of the area. Also another good reason is that it is suitable to any other attachment. Since the primary purpose of this is to dig out the ground other attachments attached to the excavator can improve the quality of the construction job and perform other tasks.
Thus with the availability of machines that can dig through different types of surfaces work will have a short duration. For the contractor this can mean more business can be tackled over a period of one month. There is only a need to find an operator who knows how to move the machine around in a few strokes. Excavators do not really need a lot of space to work around because they usually run on tracks where every little movement would allow it to execute a different move. The most important element for the space is the level of the ground where the excavator will stay since a mere bump on the ground can mean disaster for the excavator as it requires to move around on flat surfaces.
