Worldwide Hitachi manufactures hydraulic excavators, wheel loaders, rigid dump trucks and crawler cranes. This case study is about the subsidiary in Oosterhout, the Netherlands. Here HCME – Hitachi Construction Machinery (Europe) NV – manufactures and assembles among others mini excavators weighing 1-6 ton and crawler cranes.
Thanks to the increasing sales figures HCME needed to extend the production capacity. To realise this some production lines had to move and the related extraction/filtration systems were upgraded. This extension was also an opportunity to examine the existing extraction arms and -where necessary- to replace them.
Plymovent gave professional advice, drew a system design and created a solution, tailored to HCMEs requirements.
