Roads and highways sector has been and continues to be one of the key drivers for the growth of the infrastructure sector in India. India needs roads and highways, both in rural and urban areas to progress. Government also realises the importance of world-class road network and thus, has given significant focus to the sector by way of announcing substantial budget outlay in successive national budgets. “We are fully geared up to leverage the opportunity with our world-class product range, especially in the area of road construction. JCB India offers a range of road compaction equipment with three world class products namely the VMT330 (3-tonne Class Mini Tandem Roller), the VMT 860eco (9-tonne Class Tandem Roller) and the JCB116 (11-tonne Class Soil Compactor), a latest introduction in the compaction range,” informs Jasmeet Singh, Head – Corporate Communications and External Relations, JCB India Ltd.
JCB116 soil compactor
The JCB116 soil compactor is the new world-class machine that comes fitted with a state-of-the-art JCB Diesel Max engine, providing fuel savings in the range of 5-10 per cent compared to the available competing models in the market, claims Jasmeet. He adds, “Equipped with a variable fan as standard, the engine delivers a massive 430Nm of torque at low engine speeds for optimum responsiveness. It provides unmatched fuel consumption in its class of machines.”
An all-new Compaction Monitoring System (CMS), an industry first from JCB India breathes intelligence into the machine, allowing for higher compactor efficiency and real-time updates enabled by technology. Integrated with JCB’s Livelink technology, CMS allows operators to monitor compaction in real-time, thus enhancing machine and operator efficiency.
The first ever CMS in India with telematics connectivity, it enables consistent and uniform compaction through precise measurement and with accuracy. Suitable for both asphalt and soil surfaces, it allows operation in two modes – auto and manual, displaying both frequency and amplitude of vibrations.
JCB116 comes with a revolutionary telematics technology – the JCB Livelink. This state-of-the-art technology enables users to get SMS alerts on their mobile phones or smart devices regarding service alerts, operations and security of their machines. The information is available in real-time regarding the health of the machine including engines and gives vital information to the customer in terms of number of hours the machine has been operational, service intervals, fuel levels, malfunctions if any, etc. It thus enables better site management and equipment utilisation.
Livelink technology in JCB machines benefit the customers in better fleet management which leads to better expense management and timely completion of work. This information makes a huge difference in the efficiency and costs of the entire operation.
