    efforts to further heighten product quality The test bench makes it possible to test heads at an early stage under the same conditions as in the forest with fully pressurized hydraulics The tests verify among other things that the head is correctly assembled and that all hoses are correctly coupled Information from the tests even makes it possible to continually refine the heads such as to remove pressure spikes The new test bench developed by Aerotech Telub uses cutting edge technology and entailed an investment of more than two million Swedish krona USD 260 thousand Experience from the development of test equipment for products such as the JAS Gripen fighter plane for example has contributed to the use of high level technology in the advanced and fully computer controlled test bench The bench makes it possible to pressure test the pre assembled valve block both before and after attachment to the head The test unit has quick connectors capable of withstanding pressure spikes up to 31 Mph 310 bar A large hydraulic pump is used to pressurize the new test bench providing a much greater pressure output than those to which a head attached to a machine would ever be

    890 3 forwarders and the Valmet 901 3 911 3 and 941 harvesters Komatsu Forest s smaller forwarders the Valmet 830 1 and the Valmet 840 3 will be equipped with Tier 3 engines as of 2007 when the requirements are also introduced for forestry machines with engines producing less than 172 HP 130 kW Tier 3 is a big step in terms of lessening environmental impact The previous limits of 6 0 g kWh for nitric oxide emissions and 1 0 g kWh for hydrocarbons will be combined into a single combined nitric oxide and hydrocarbon emissions limit of 4 0 g kWh Meeting the Tier 3 engine requirements primarily demands improved fuel injection The engines are fitted with so called common rail technology which provides more accurate fuel injection with electronic fuel injectors to provide more accurate combustion The combustion chambers have been improved and work is underway with intercoolers to provide increased air density which in turn contributes to more complete combustion One result of the improvements is that the engines run more smoothly and more quietly with improved and more exact engine response Torque on the Valmet 860 3 and the Valmet 901 3 is increased from 740 Nm to 800 Nm at 1500 RPM providing greater pulling power In addition to fitting the engines with common rail technology and electronic fuel injection injector pressure is increased and oil consumption reduced with tighter piston rings and improved cylinder liners By optimizing the engines we ve gained quicker engine response and an improved torque curve with increased productivity explains Ola Boström head of product development at Komatsu Forest We haven t experienced any problems in adapting the engines to the Tier 3 requirements thanks to the well developed electronic control systems Facts about the Tier requirements In
