Construction Equipment Company Ltd (Telcon) was incorporated
in March 1999, although the seeds of this company were sown
in 1961 when the Tata Engineering and Locomotive Company Limited
(Telco) set up the Excavators Division at Jamshedpur for the
manufacture of crawler cranes and rope shovels in collaboration
with Pauling & Harneischfeger of the USA. In 1984, Telco
collaborated with Hitachi Construction Machinery Company Limited,
Japan, for the manufacture of the UH series of hydraulic excavators.
Subsequently, in 1990, the Tata-Hitachi EX series of excavators
were launched. In 1991, the Excavators Division was named
Construction Equipment Division (CED) which in 1994 formed
the Construction Equipment Business Unit (CEBU). The first
machine rolled out from their new manufacturing facility at
Dharwad in 1999. In 2000, it became a joint venture company
with Hitachi Construction Machinery Company Ltd, Japan picking
up a 20 percent stake with the rest being owned by Tata Engineering
and Locomotive Company Ltd.
with rope shovels, Telcon today has a wide range of hydraulic
excavators in the country. At this juncture, Telcon is all
set to launch the V-series of hydraulic excavators featuring
computer and engine pump controls and a variety of work modes.
In its endeavour to make Telcon a one-stop shop, it has introduced
to the Indian markets, equipment which are outside their manufacturing
range by importing them from Hitachi and their associates
the worldwide. Today, Telcon has over 66 percent market share
in hydraulic excavators, 100 percent in crawler crane and
20 percent in wheel loader.
equipment have been deployed in many large projects in the
country; some of them being Konkan Railway, Mumbai-Pune expressway,
Reliance Petroleum, Tehri dam, Dabhol Power Project, the national
highway projects, various optical fibre cable (OFC) laying
projects undertaken in the country at present, etc.
t is a hydraulic excavator having an engine power
of 272 kW. The operating weights of the backhoe and
the shovel are 57,000 kg and 59,500 kg, respectively.
The bucket capacity of the backhoe is 2.5 – 3.5 m3
and that of shovel is 3.5 – 4.0 m3.
The new computer-aided engine-pump
(E-P) control system is designed for higher job efficiency
with less fuel consumption and less noise. The main pump consists
of two variable displacement axial piston pumps, where the
maximum flow is 2 x 382 l/min. The pilot pump is a one-gear
pump with maximum flow of 30 l/min. All hydraulic circuits
have high quality hydraulic filters for protection against
oil contamination. There are pilot controls for
with shockless valve and quick warm-up system built in the
pilot system. The swing mechanism consists of a high-torque,
axial piston motor with planetary reduction gear bathed in
oil having a swing speed of 8 rpm. It finds applications in
mining and quarrying and is gaining popularity in limestone
is a mini excavator with an engine power of 36PS at
2100 rpm, an operating weight of 4100 kg and bucket
capacity of 0.09-0.15 m3.
has advanced features like optimum hydraulic system
for easy and smooth combined operation of attachment
and swing travel. Easy inspection and maintenance
is permitted by HN bushings. These eliminate the need
to lubricate most of the parts of the EX40
greatly extending lubricating intervals. These bushings
are made of a sintered composite iron alloy vacuum
impregnated in micron sized pores with high viscosity
shoes, a variety of buckets, single point ripper are
the optional attachments to this model.
This mini excavator has an engine power of 39 PS at
3000 rpm with an operating weight of 2200 kg and bucket
capacity of 0.07 m3.
The swivel boom enhances reach
in confined areas and also makes dumping easy, its 360o swing
increases productivity. The machine is small enough to be
transported on a truck, it can be used for in-city applications
such as drainage work, canal work, sewerage tunnels and garbage
handling. Its compact size and rock breaker make a combination
for tunnelling works and its augur fitment makes it useful
for piling work.
It can be provided
with dozer blade, single point ripper, rubber shoes, augur
rock breaker and trench bucket as attachments.
