Earthmoving & Construction Equipment

Groeneveld systems maintain earthmoving and construction equipment all over the world.  Daily manual maintenance is inefficient with operations running 24 hours, 7 days a week.  Automation lubrication and oil management are essential to maintain equipment value, while producing an efficient operation.

Automatically lubricates better

The manual lubrication of pins and bushings is dirty, unpleasant, time-consuming work: time could be used for equipment operations and profitability.  With manual lubrication it's difficult for grease to reach surfaces, resulting in extra wear.  Groeneveld Lubrication Solutions offers these major benefits:

  • Frequent automatic lubrication while machine is in operation, will reduce wear and will save time and money 
  • Longer life span of the lubricated components
  • Less costs
  • Higher residual value 
  • Less grease consumption with optimum dosing 
  • Grease spreads better across the surface to be lubricated, because the machine is in operation
  • Grease is applied in small amounts at regular intervals, where a grease collar is created around the pivot point
  • Dirt and water are kept out (also during high-pressure cleaning)

Reduce risks, enhance safety

Groeneveld's Greensight obstacle detection and camera systems offer an excellent solution to increase safety.  Here are the benefits:

  • Ultrasonic acoustic warning system 
  • Improved safety around the equipment
  • Less risk of damage and personal injury
  • Increased uptime 
  • No information overload for the operator
  • Fully integrated and modular system 
  • Fully adjustable to the application and the customer's wishes 
  • Expandable with the unique Smart alarm, the sound level of which will be automatically adapted to the ambient noise

Greensight obstacle detection system

Greensight is available as an obstacle detection system, camera system or (combination of both).  Ultrasound allows the system to detect obstacles in the pre-set zones accurately. The detection area consists of three zones, each with its own level of focus. The system can be expanded with sensors either on the side or on top of the equipment. As soon as an obstacle is detected, an acoustic signal sounds for the operator in the cabin where the display shows the zone where the obstacle is located. This means that the operator will be able to fully concentrate on his work and will be warned as soon as a person or object enters the detection area.

Modular system

The Greensight system can be set up modularly: it is an integrated solution that can be adapted easily to many applications.  A wheel loader has different requirements for  detection than a dump truck or bulldozer.  Detection areas can be adjusted according to equipment/environmental needs.  All of the components shown below can be individually connected to the control unit.

1. Control unit

The control unit is the core of each Greensight system. For smaller systems Groeneveld supplies a control unit with six connections and for larger systems, a control unit with 15 connections is available. On this basis, each system can be built up modularly.

2. Sensors

The basic components of the Greensight detection system are the two sensors on the rear of the vehicle. The compact sensors detect objects that have a diameter larger than 75 mm. The in-cab display warns the driver through light and acoustic signals.

3. Additional sensors

To expand the obstacle detection system, sensors are available to mount on top or on the sides of the vehicle. This enlarges the detection area of the vehicle.

4. Camera system

The obstacle detection system can be expanded with the Groeneveld camera system, which can also function independently.

5. Smart alarm

The Greensight ultrasonic safety system warns the driver with acoustic/light signals.  The Smart alarm feature detects people close to the vehicle and are also warned as soon as Greensight observes them or an obstacle.  An acoustic signal is given only when necessary, warning bystanders to stay alert.  The volume of the Smart alarm automatically adapts to the ambient noise.

Greensight camera system

In addition to the ultrasonic detection system, Groeneveld supplies a high quality camera system to improve visibility for operators.  With four cameras, this solution is great for blind spots and can be connected to the monitor (all four camera images are displayed on a split screen). This camera system can be used as stand alone, or supplement to the Greensight ultrasonic detection system: a combination that significantly improves safety, while increasing operator comfort.

Unique characteristics

  • Clear and sharp images
  • No condensation and frost issues due to automatically heated lens surface
  • Possible expansion up to four cameras
  • CAN-bus connectvity prepared
  • High sensitivity at 0.025 lux (good visibility with little light)
  • Switches easily between different camera images

Always the correct level of oil

Groeneveld's Oilmaster oil management system ensures that oil is always at an optimum level.  This saves time and prevents engine damage (costly and time consuming).  The Oilmaster has these key benefits:

  • No need to check the oil level and fill the oil manually - pure time gain
  • Always the optimum oil level and correct oil specification
  • No engine damage as a result of an insufficient amount of oil in the engine
  • Less downtime as a result of repair and maintenance
  • Less risk of damaging expensive exhaust gas after treatment systems
  • Lower oil consumption
  • No risk of increased fuel consumption due to overfilling
  • Less oil required during oil change
  • Lower costs

Reliable operation

The oil level in the engine is measured via a sensor. If the oil level drops below a pre-defined level, the Oilmaster will automatically fill half a litre of oil, independent of temperature and viscosity. Information about the amount of oil added is stored in the internal memory and can be used to perform preventive maintenance.

System overview

The Oilmaster oil management system consists of the following components:

  1. Oil reservoir
  2. Pump unit
  3. Control light
  4. Sump plug
  5. Oil level sensor

The Oilmaster is available in a standard and heavy duty version:
