Wind Energy Provides Power for Netherland Trains


Netherland is known as the “hometown of tulip” and the “kingdom of windmill”, tulip and windmill are the marks of this beautiful country. As the treasure of Netherland, the wind resource once again is put into great use–providing energy for trains. All of the trains in Netherland are driven by electricity and several newly-built wind plants started to provide power for trains on the first day of 2017, which makes Netherland become the first country in the world that completes the goal of renewable energy providing power for trains.


Wind power is one of the main sources for electricity generation in Netherland. Using wind turbine generator to generate electricity is not only environmental-friendly but also can adjust one country’s energy structure and improve people’s life quality. Reducing carbon emission is not only Netherland’s wish but also the goal of the whole world, and Netherland has set a good example for the world in renewable energy development. Actually, 75% of Netherland trains were driven by wind power till last year, and the percentage reached 100% on January 1st of this year. The crawler cranes is an indispensable device when installing a wind mill.

The wind turbine generator appeared in the 1890s and developed fast since 1980s. In the past years, the diameter of the rotor blade kept increasing and the rated power kept improving, being more and more widely used in industrial applications. More and more countries in the world take deep interest in the wind resource development, which will make the wind power more popularized in the future.

Hydraulic Roller VS Mechanical Roller, which is the King of Road Machinery?

Road roller can be divided into hydraulic type and mechanical type. Discussions have been generated about the comparison of the two types in different aspects. The comparison mainly focuses on efficiency, safety, environmental protection, maintenance, price, reliability and comfort.

The mechanical roller has no front wheel drive and its working speed is fixed. The hydraulic one adopts full-wheel drive, which allocates more power to the vibrating drum, improving the compactness and reducing the compacting times, having more advantages in improving efficiency. And the hydraulic type needs no stop in the travelling process, improving 10% in efficiency than the traditional mechanical one. For safety, braking is an important factor that decides whether the machine can be stopped immediately once emergency happened. The brake of the hydraulic one combines with the joystick and can be locked when emergency happened. The brake and joystick of the mechanical one is separated, which may cost more time for the operator to stop the machine under urgent situation. Thus, the hydraulic roller has higher safety than the mechanical one, especially in mountainous area and dam construction. Also, the hydraulic type does a better job in heat dissipation than the mechanical one. The hydraulic type can be used in extreme temperature ranging from -40℃ to 60℃. And the hydraulic type is easier to be maintained.

Although the hydraulic roller has higher price than the mechanical one, its advantages in high efficiency, high reliability, environmental protection, safety and ease of maintenance are obvious. All of the industry experts, representatives and media believe that the hydraulic type has huge market potential in the future.

Sany Small Excavator Challenges the Impossible

On December 25th, when many people celebrated Christmas, Sany small excavator once again attended the famous China show “Challenge the Impossible” and performed another stunt that surprised everyone. Memory was revoked to November 13th, which is the first time that Sany excavator appeared in this TV show and performed tightrope walking in the height of 5.4 meters high from the ground. At that time, Mr Liu Renwei, Sany excavator engineer, perfectly showed his consummate operating skill and successfully completed the challenge. With the courage of the success in the first time, Mr Zhang Xiaocheng, the challenger of this time, created another miracle on the Christmas day.


Different with the challenge of the first time, Sany small excavator turned into spider-man this time and climbed the tower with the height of 18 meters. The tower was divided into six parts and the light would be turned on when the excavator reached that part. The rule for the final success was that the when the excavator reached the top, its jib would be fixed with the groove in the bottom and the machine body hung in the air for 5 seconds. Full of difficulties and risks, this challenge became the focus of this show.


With strengthened parts and excellent bearing capacity, the 13.5-ton small excavator perfectly cooperated with Mr Zhang Xiaocheng and successfully completed the challenge. Both the audiences in the site and watching TV applauded for this excellent performance. And for SANY, this was the best Christmas gift.

Something You Have to Know about Transit Mixer

Transit mixer is a kind of special truck that is used to transport concrete for engineering construction, it is also called “olive truck” because of its appearance. The mixing drum will keep rotating to prevent the concrete in the mixing drum from solidification during the transporting process. The mixing drum should be cleaned with fresh water after used to avoid the remaining concrete becoming solidified and reducing the capacity of the mixing drum.


The concrete transit mixer consists of motor chassis and concrete mixing devices. Generally, the concrete mixer machine include mixing drum, decelerator, hydraulic system, operating and cleaning system. The mixer truck’s working procedures start from getting power from the motor chassis and driving the hydraulic pump, transferring the mechanical power into hydraulic power and sending it to the constant motor, then driving the decelerator and mixing devices to mix the concrete.


Daily maintenance is very important for transit mixer to keep a good condition for a long time. Lubricant should be paint regularly to avoid frequent abrasion. The hydraulic oil should be kept clean and as specified, the sewage should not enter the hydraulic system, especially in the tough working environment. Replace the hydraulic oil once mixed with water or sand. Keep the cooling devices effective and regularly clean the hydraulic radiator to prevent being blocked.
