Allison Transmission and PENVEN present fully automatic solutions for construction professionals at Intermat 2012
Global automatic transmission manufacturer and its regional distributor present Allison’s range of transmissions specifically designed for the construction market at the Paris Nord Villepinte Exhibition Centre, from April 16 – 22.
Paris, FRANCE – Allison Transmission and its French distributor PENVEN will showcase a wide range of automatic transmissions tailored for the construction market at this year’s Intermat exhibition (Hall 5A, Aisle E, Booth 170). Technical specialists from Allison will explain how a fully automatic transmission delivers driving precision and reduces driver distraction in heavy-duty construction vehicles, which perform on difficult terrain and on steep slopes.
Allison 3000 and 6000 series cutaway units will be on display to represent a wide range of commercial-duty, fully automatic transmissions suitable for both construction and mining applications. The smallest Allison 1000 Series is used in heavy-duty pickup trucks, while the largest 9000 Series can handle engines with up to 2,250 hp and a torque of 8270 Nm.
The Astra RD32 rigid dump truck (Outside 2, Aisle A, Booth 22) and Bell B50D articulated dump truck (Hall 5a, Aisle G, Booth 140), both equipped with Allison transmissions will be present at the exhibition. In addition, the show will mark the debut of two new vehicles that rely upon Allison’s fully automatic transmissions, Bell’s new B30E articulated dump truck and XCMG’s Mercedes-powered XCT30CE 30 ton mobile crane (Outside 6, Aisle G, Booth 036).
Benjamin Bouchot, Allison’s Market Developer for France, asserts that fully automatic transmissions deliver the specific blend of highly varied requirements crucial to the construction and mining sectors. “Our fully automatic transmissions have been trusted in this demanding market sector for more than 60 years. Their acceptance is driven by key benefits, such as Allison’s continuous power technology and patented torque converter, which deliver unrivalled vehicle performance, reduce downtime and optimize fuel utilization. These advantages contribute to increased productivity and safety, while reducing maintenance costs,” said Bouchot.
