Excavators are engineering vehicles which are primarily used for the purpose of digging trenches holes or foundations. They are also used for other purposes such as demolition lifting and placing heavy materials especially pipes for mining( not open pit mining) river dredging landscaping. These can be used for brush cuttings aided with hydraulic attachments. Because excavators are used for the purpose of digging people usually use the term excavators for all kind of digging equipments. Actual excavators have an articulated arm a bucket and a cab mounted on a rotating platform known as a pivot. This platform is on top of an undercarriage with tracks or wheels. The design is basically derived from steam shovels.
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.
There are two definitions for excavator; one is any person engaging in excavation is called an excavator. The second definition of excavator is of course the vehicles called excavators which are sometimes called diggers trackhoes fronthoes and 360-degree excavators or just 360. This is not to be confused with Microsofts vertical technology and news search engine called Excavator or xcavator as one has nothing to do with the other. Here were talking about heavy duty digging machines even though several manufacturers like John Deere offer Compact Midsize and Large Excavators ranging from 0-6 metric tons for the compact excavators 6 to 40 metric tons for the midsize and 40 to 85 for large John Deere excavators. Additionally there exist mini-excavators made by another manufacturer that will fit through a door.
The Dragline Excavator may come in smaller or bigger types. Smaller types are employed in civil engineering to construct road and port. While the larger types are utilized in strip-mining to move overburden above coal and for tar-sand mining. Draglines usually weigh about 2000 metric tons but there are also bigger draglines weighing 13000 metric tons. The bucket system of a dragline has a large bucket suspended with wire ropes from a large truss-like structure called boom. This bucket is maneuvered by ropes and chains and is supported by a hoist rope (whose power comes from large diesel or electric motors). The dragrope is responsible for holding and drawing the bucket assembly in a horizontal fashion. A skillful operator may apply his skills in contriving the ropes for the dragline to perform various operations.
