Atlas Copco launch new concrete sprayer

Atlas Copco launches the first of its MEYCO branded mobile concrete sprayers.

Dubbed the MEYCO Versa, as in 'versatile', the mobile shotcreting unit is an all in one unit designed to be used by a single operator in mid-sized tunnels.

It's carrier platform is built with a 4X4 crab steering capability, and is powered by Tier 4 diesel engines, for cleaner operation underground.

The Versa also has a new boom, an optional 75kW onboard compressor, a 20 cubic metre per hour low pulsation concrete pump, and a high precision dosing system.

According to Atlas Copco MEYCO product manager Christof Zielgler, "one of the key features of this machine is its Mezza boom which is fast and smooth, while at the same time reducing overall wear and tear. This has been achieved thanks to a new type of glide bearing technology that we have developed as a result of feedback from our customers.”

The machine also features an easy to use operator interface, and also has the ability to be remotely operate.

Atlas Copco launched the machine this month.
