EARTH MOVINGThe expression earth moving machine is used to indicate industrial machines used to perform any operation requiring earth movement, i.e. earth modelling, generally for construction or territorial management purposes, for excavation and relief works.
Depending on the function in question, they are divided into: machines exclusively used for moving material; machines for loading material, excavation as well as transportation machines. They are made up of a translating machine body, whether on tracks or rubber, possibly driven by a rotary unit and the functional unit (for excavating, moving or loading earth).
The energy required for the operation thereof is drawn from motors connected to an oil hydraulic system that enables the machine to carry out various operations.
O+P equipment also finds suitable application in the earth moving industry, especially at the service of producers and users of machines where the oil hydraulic component is particularly important – tractor scrapers, caterpillars, excavators, forestry machines (log loaders, biomass shredders, wood splitters).
CONSTRUCTIONConstruction represents the entirety of techniques and know-how aimed at designing and creating constructions or buildings more specifically. Construction industry covers all works applied to creating, modifying, repairing or demolishing a building.
The ever-enhancing industrialisation and specialisation of the construction industry led to the concept of the building process referred to as Construction.
The expression construction process is used to indicate the entire sequence of operations, regarding the creation, implementation, use and maintenance of a construction project right from the initial design, to the actual construction and management over its entire useful life.
The main stages of the process are: design, construction, management and maintenance.
O+P's equipment is increasing frequently its demand in this industry too, especially concerning the connection of bars and rods for support on construction and road machinery (concrete mixers, concrete pumps, asphalt pavers, roller compressors, aerial platforms, telescopic arms, on and off board cranes). Our Mobile Hose Workshop, the new mobile workshop for machining flexible oil hydraulic hoses, was conceived to meet this demand. This innovative solution finds perfect application in construction sites, construction industry and any other situations requiring an equipped assistance centre within reach. The equipment contained therein, can be customised to meet the customer’s specific requirements.
