New XCMG products unveiled during MINExpo are reportedly adapted to work under highly challenging conditions. The 95-ton XE950G crawler excavator, with a bucket capacity of 6 m³, is an efficient and energy-saving model featuring advanced controls, a behavior monitoring system and industry-leading dual-pump independent technology, according to the company. It is said to excel in terms of smart operation and is suited to extreme mining environments.
The company said the unit has the industry’s first adaptive boom potential energy recovery and utilization technology, which reduces fuel consumption by more than 15% compared with previous machines of similar size.
The dual-system automatic switching technology uses critical-state fuzzy control methods to facilitate automatic switching between energy recovery and reuse systems and the base hydraulic power system, for optimal operation under different working conditions. The energy recovery system has passed bench-test verification of more than 2 million cycles, to ensure long service life, reliability and durability. Rated flow of each hydraulic pump is 476 lpm (126 gpm), with working and travel hydraulic pressures to 350 bar (5,076 psi).
