High Speed Excavation
Simultaneous excavation (long stroke type)
The excavation and segment assembly can be performed at the same time by extending the shield jack stroke and the space of the tail part with special hydraulic control system.
Furthermore, by incorporating a semi-automatic erector that automatically transport to the segment assembly position, it can improve construction efficiency and safety.
