Rock Products Attends Atlas-Copco Event
- Written by Mark Kuhar
Oct. 3, 2011 – It’s been four years since Atlas Copco’s last customer event, Total Solutions, took place in Belgium. Building off of that theme, last week’s Experience our Energy: Regional Event for The Americas in Panama was the first of four global events that the company’s new Portable Energy Division has planned. Rock Products was the only aggregates industry magazine represented at the event, attended by Assistant Editor Josephine Smith. The company introduced the XAS 750 JD7 Tier 4a rotary screw, portable compressor. It generates 750 cfm of free air delivery and 100 psi at normal working pressure. Powered by a 200-hp, 6-cylinder John Deere diesel engine, the XAS 750 is designed for heavy-duty construction environments. The company also noted that they are currently working on an 850 model that uses a Cat C7 engine. More on the event in the next issue of Rock Products.
