Andy Rivet

Atlas Copco has announced the appointments of two new managers in its Ludlow, Mass., store. Effective immediately, Andy Rivet has accepted the position of store manager and Cory Lapan will take over in Rivet’s former position as service manager at that location.

In his new role, Rivet reports directly to Dave Pietrzykowski, vice president of store channel operations.

“Andy’s service background coupled with his exemplary customer service skills are a winning combination that will ensure his success in this new role,” said Pietrzykowski.

Rivet had served as service manager at the Ludlow location since 2005. He originally joined Atlas Copco as a field service technician in May 2000. In his new role as store manager serving the Northeast region, he will oversee Atlas Copco the Surface Drilling Equipment, Drilling Solutions, Geotechnical Drilling and Exploration (GDE) and Dynapac product lines.

Rivet is also responsible for managing the Ludlow team comprised of Debbie Rodzen, administration manager; Jerome Pie, Dynapac sales representative; Brian M. Greene, Northeast water well sales representative; Ken Kasavage, Northeast GDE sales manager; and newly appointed service manager, Cory Lapan.

“Cory’s proven leadership, willingness to learn and ability to rise above challenging situations makes him a great fit to the position,” Rivet said.

First joining Atlas Copco in February 2006, Lapan had served as a field technician at the Atlas Copco–Ludlow service center until this appointment.

Prior to his employment with Atlas Copco, Lapan served as an aircraft mechanic in the U.S. Air Force and has 10 years’ experience in the logging and saw mill industry

Atlas Copco Announces Addition Of Bulk Pulverizers To Silent Demolition Line

Atlas Copco BP 2050 R, bulk pulverizer with hydraulic rotation option.

Atlas Copco has announced the addition of two models of bulk pulverizers, the BP 2050 and BP 3050, to their range of silent demolition tools. Key design features include a specially angled shape and wide jaw for improved access to material and a speed valve for a more rapid open and close cycle.

“The speed valve actually helps lower the overall cost of ownership,” said Keith Becker, product development specialist for Atlas Copco hydraulic attachments. “If you reduce your opening and closing time, or cycle time, you’re reducing machine hours, operator hours and fuel consumption while increasing production.”

“Another feature that cuts down your time on the job and saves money is the high, constant power that these units generate at the jaw tips, even when they’re almost closed,” added Becker. “That extra power means you can use fewer bites to demolish a structure, for example. Every bite adds up. ”

The wide jaw not only makes it easier to feed in material, it also aids in the clean separation of rebar and concrete. The large jaw dimensions enable a high production output as well. Each model comes with a replaceable tooth-plate and cutting blades on the jaw which results in less down time in the field.

Common applications for the new bulk pulverizers include secondary reduction and separation, secondary demolition of reinforced concrete structures and separation of concrete and rebar. When equipped with the optional 360-degree hydraulic rotation device (BP 2050 R and BP 3050 R) the units can be used for efficient primary demolition of ceilings and walls. The Atlas Copco bulk pulverizers are available for carriers in the 18- to 35-ton classes.

Atlas Copco updates ROC Manager surface drilling software

Atlas Copco announces availability of ROC Manager 3.0 planning and administration software, replacing ROC Manager 2.0 for SmartROC drill rigs. In addition to creating drill plans, the new software will also produce production and fleet management reports, including the ability to create reports to compare all SmartROC drill rigs in a fleet.

  • Average penetration rate
  • Meters per engine hour
  • Percussion time by engine time
  • Operator access to the latest production planning

The software is composed of four primary integrated functions: (1) Creating work orders and drill plans; (2) presentation and analysis of log files; (3) monitoring of work performed by rigs; (4) a report generator.

The drill plan created in the office by ROC Manager 3.0 may be transferred to the rig by USB device or wirelessly via Rig Remote Access (RRA). Log files may be transmitted from the rig to the office in the same manner.
