Minnich M-Box vibration control solution gives operators control over their concrete
The Minnich M-Box is an innovative control speed high-cycle power converter that enables high-cycle vibrator operators to control the speed/vibrations per minute (VPM) of up to two vibrators. The M-Box minimizes time and cost associated with patching structural concrete surface blemishes caused by excessive vibrator speeds.
In pumped concrete mixes, available/bleed water can be an issue. The faster the vibrator speed, the more water separation occurs and collects on the form faces. Chipping and patching labour and patch material can be expensive.
Minnich M-Box operators can select from speeds of 6,000, 8,000 and 10,800 VPM. The product converts the 230-volt, single-phase outlet of a 3,500-watt generator to 230-volt, three-phase output, allowing the operator to choose a uniform and compatible constant speed under different concrete loads.
"The M-Box gives our customers complete control of their concrete," said Rob Minnich, vice president of marketing at Minnich Manufacturing. "By helping operators apply the most force with the lowest speed, the M-Box maximizes vibration quality – and, in turn, the quality of the concrete structure."
As one of the latest models in the R2-Series excavator lineup, the Bobcat® E88 delivers durability, performance and quality for more productivity. Technically speaking, it's a compact machine, but it brings big performance with its redesigned engine and optimized lift performance, plus undercarriage and counterweight improvements. All these enhancements make this excavator one of the highest-performing models in its size class. With impressive over-the-side lift capacity, you can dig with greater confidence over the side of the machine. Put it to the test against similar models from other manufacturers. You'll see that the E88 can outwork the competition.
