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.
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.
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
General Purpose with wide tip - These excavator buckets are ideal for clearing and smoothing the ground and considered to be better in comparison to other types due to its minimal spillage. Wide tips can scoop more ground material which will make work quicker and easier. Heavy Duty - Excavator bucket manufacturers recommend this if you want the versatile type of buckets. They are used for a wide range of excavating projects and in excavating tougher materials like stones rocks cement and even asphalt. As the heavy duty is capable of tough excavation it will also be able to work on softer types of ground materials.
