Field Trip to Demonstration of Press-in machine 2

Demonstration of the Press-in technologies was organised at Lingang New Town in Pudong District where was about 75 km away from the main venue. It was the first time to set up the demonstration site only for the workshop. When travelling by car for 90 minutes, technical summary of the Press-in Method and the demonstration programme were explained to participants in advance. The site was located in the huge undeveloped area by the sea. There ware few buildings and houses yet and the place looked ready the forth-coming new railway construction work.

A standard sequence of the Press-in Method was demonstrated including press-in, extraction and self-moving. Participants could see it from a pavilion in a relaxed manner. Taking an advantage of the demonstration site, many people came closer to the working press-in machine and observed its movements from whatever angles and distances they wanted. Moreover, some of them had a chance to operate the machine by themselves with the radio controller under the guidance of the authorised Press-in Instructors. Participants enjoyed the demonstration and seemed to be impressed by high performance of the press-in technologies with safety, speed, drivability, reliability and quietness.
