This article describes how mobile CAN-based systems and machine-on-wheels can be connected to the Internet. If you have not heard buzz words like Internet of Things (IoT), Machine-to-Machine communication (M2M), or Industry 4.0 you might have spent the last few years on Mars or in an information black out. With the emergence of the Internet and lowcost data transmission possibilities, we started to connect a wide range of things (like sensors, machines, etc.)...
Designed in America during WWII as one solution to the growing labour shortage, Gradall excavators are a truly unique product. In addition to the boom telescoping in and out, it alsorotates around its own axis, providing a working envelope without equal.
Bünyesine ekledigi markalarla her gecen gün ürüm gamini ve müsteri portföyünü genisleten Cösüm Makina, son olarak MOBA Mobile Automation AG, Mann Filter ve Baumaschinen Fink GmbH firmalari ile distribütörlük anlasmasi imzaladi.
To reduce cabling effort, Moba developed a controller that contains an integrated terminal strip on top. OEMs are now able to wire their machines directly to the top of the controller. The time-saving benefit is only one aspect that convinced Ruthmann, manufacturer of truck-mounted working platforms, to use the Modular Control Panel MCP for their Steiger series and models called Cockpit. The integrated cabinet contains the mentioned controllers with a timeefficiently removable plug and clamp combination on top.
A new system from MOBA Mobile Automation allows for accurate measurements to be made of pavement thickness. Called PAVE-TM, the system can capture the installation thickness of any road layer during asphalt paving and uses contact-free measurement technology...
PAVE-TM said to be the worldwide first system for the automatic measurement of layer thickness in the field of road construction, has been launched by MOBA Mobile Automation AG...

For companies in the waste sector, two things are almost guaranteed; the cost of waste disposal will continue to rise and the pressure on margins will grow stronger. Whilst the former will be driven by market conditions and, to a certain gedree governmental intervention, waste contractors can still have plenty of influence over their own profitability ...

MOBA Mobile Automation AG has unveiled its new system PAVE-TM sensor technology for asphalt thickness measurement. The company claims the system will make the consumption of materials in road construction more efficient and sustainable in the future and thus significantly save costs. "With this new system MOBA Mobile Automation AG succeeded in setting another revolutionary milestone in the history of road construction," said the company.
Trends in On-board Scale Systems for the Waste Industry On-board scales used to be the tactical side of successful waste and recycling hauling operations. Today they are strategic.

Asphalt is used mainly for the construction and maintenance of roads, and as demand for such infrastructure takes off worldwide so demand for the product grows. A blend of aggregates, binder and filler is used in the different layers of a highway pavement, and today is produced and laid using sophisticated equipment. Xi´an, north-west China, home to the famous Terracotta Warriors, was once the country´s imperial capital where, over 2000 years ago, Emperor Qin Shi Huang had a passion for building. He bagan work on the Great Wall, built the warriors to protect him after his death, and constructed the country´s first road network. China´s road building programme is now rather more ambitious, with more than 10000 km of new highway being completed each year.
High-Quality control panel solutions that can be individually adapted to the needs of each machine while requiring only short development times enable OEMs to take a more flexible approach to mobile automation. Automation technologies play a very important role in all machine sectors nowadays. The goal is always the same: optimizing processes, increasing efficiency and combining individual subsystems to create one high-end system.
MOBA´s improved levelling accuracy. The new MOBA-matic II leveling control system is said to offer an array of innovative features that improve ease of use and safety. The control handset now comes with a large screen so that the most important value is always within view of the operator. I also has a backlit keypad making working in low, ambient light far easier. Most importantly, however is that with a single control panel, both sides of the screed can now be controlled from one screen making it both substantially easier and safer for the user.
Innovations in Milling. New developments for the milling machine sector shoul help optimise performance, as well as increase health and safety standards for site personnel. Advances in the milling machine market generally focus on new models being available or developments to drums and cutters. However some rather different developments are taking place that could well deliver long term improvements for health and safety as well as the quality of work carried out, optimising milling operations. Meanwhile German firm MOBA is now offering a system that can help optimise milling quality. The company is introducing its Big Sonic-Ski system, which suits use with road milling machines as well as asphalt pavers.
A new automated levelling tool from MOBA is available that can help improve paving quality. The system is designed to deliver a smooth and even asphalt surface, by ensuring that the height and slope of the screed on the paver is accurately maintained. This is particularly important when the machine is moving in the vertical plane due to uneven ground or sub-base conditions. Achieving smoothness is important to the paving contractor. In many countries, highways authorities will pay more for smoother roads and also penalise contractors that do not meet smothness specifications.
