TT Technologies: Entrenched in Trenchless  
TT Technologies has literally grown up with the trenchless technology industry, coming into being before the term “trenchless” became synonymous with the rehabilitation of underground infrastructure that it is today. This Aurora, Ill.-based business is one of a handful of companies that drew its first breaths at the onset of the trenchless technology revolution and remains a true pioneer to the industry, showcasing pipe bursting, pipe ramming, horizontal directional drilling (HDD) and piercing tools in its repertoire of trenchless products.

A Herrenknecht giant reaches its target  
“Martina”, the largest tunnel boring machine manufactured by Herrenknecht so far, finished her large-scale project in Italy with final breakthrough. The EPB Shield with a diameter of 15.55 meters produced the shell of the twin-bore Sparvo Tunnel between Bologna and Florence in about two years. This will relieve Autostrada A1 considerably from traffic in the future.
Akkerman introduces the newest jacking frame  
Akkerman is pleased to introduce the 4815A jacking frame, the newest addition to the Guided Boring Machine (GBM) line of equipment. The 4815A design was made essential with GBM projects trending towards 400-ft. + (122 m) length pipe installations. These drives require additional torque and jacking force to advance tooling strings accurately at these lengths.
Endless to swivel milling arm and a new 360-degree camera  
The self-propelled milling robots HydroCut 150 and 200 got a functional facelift. The milling arm is now equipped with a camera (480 TV lines) that is able to rotate 360 degrees. Together with an improved high resoluted LED lighting users will get things into perspective easily. It makes a more precise work possible. Another development is the new constructed hydraulic feed-through for high-pressure water up to 250 bar (3,600 psi) with slip ring on the milling arm. That enlarges the mobility because the milling arm is now endless to swivel.
