Changsha, China (ots/PRNewswire)
Zoomlion Heavy Industry Science & Technology Co., Ltd. (“Zoomlion”; 1157.HK) unveiled the latest innovative carbon fiber composite technology and a pump truck (ZLJ5460THBSF 63X-6RZ) with a boom made of carbon fiber on November 26th at its Lugu Industrial Park in Changsha, China.
This is the first carbon fiber boom pump truck entirely designed and manufactured in China. The carbon fiber composite material independently developed and patented by Zoomlion and the related manufacturing technologies have not only improved work efficiency and reduced production costs, but also further improved lightweight construction performance through an innovative carbon fiber composite-metal hybrid structure technology.
The weight of the boom was reduced by 35 percent by applying hybrid structure technology to the pump truck. Thanks to the lightweight construction technology, the 44-ton machine has a maximum delivery height of 63 meters, making it the longest boom in the world in this tonnage class. With a chip sensor inserted into the structure, similar to “installing nerves in bones”, it provides a monitoring and prediction function to better serve the customer.
Zoomlion’s breakthrough technologies, such as the new carbon fiber composite and the world’s first “hollow” boom technology, are also of great importance for energy saving and emissions reduction in the industry based on new technology can reduce steel consumption by 750 tons and cut CO2 emissions by 1,500 tons.
Zoomlion has embarked on a comprehensive green development path and defined a green development strategy that integrates green design, green production and green management and thus meets the requirements of the market for high-quality and sustainable development of companies.
“As the world has set itself the goal of climate neutrality, the construction machinery industry must promote the introduction of green technologies and green production with new innovations that promote the green and sustainable development of the industry as well as the sustainable development of products,” said Fu Ling, chief engineer and Vice President of Zoomlion. “Zoomlion’s insistence on an environmentally friendly development strategy underscored the company’s commitment to sustainability as a pioneer in the industry.”
Zoomlion is a high quality equipments company integrating engineering machinery, agricultural machinery and financial services.
