Introduction to Excavator bucket.


1. Classification and function

According to the material, the bucket is also divided into standard bucket, reinforced bucket, rock bucket, gravel bucket, etc. The standard bucket material is made of domestic high-quality high-strength structural steel 16Mn, which is suitable for light working environments such as excavation of general clay and loose soil and loading of sand, soil and gravel. The tooth base plate and side blade plate of the vulnerable parts of the reinforcement bucket are made of domestic high-quality high-strength wear-resistant steel NM360, which is suitable for heavy-duty operations such as excavation of hard soil mixed with soft gravel or loading of gravel and gravel. 

The tooth base plate and side blade plate of the rock bucket are made of HARDOX, an ultra-high-strength wear-resistant steel imported from Sweden, which is suitable for excavating hard soil, sub-hard stone, weathered stone or hard stone, and blasted ore mixed with relatively hard crushed stone. Loading and other heavy duty work environments.

Buckets are also divided into ditch buckets, grid buckets, cleaning buckets, tilting buckets, etc. according to their functions. The water trench bucket is suitable for the excavation of trenches of various shapes. The trenches are excavated once and formed, generally without trimming, and the operation efficiency is high. The grid bucket is suitable for the excavation of relatively loose materials, and the excavation and separation are completed at one time. 

It is widely used in municipal, agriculture, forestry, water conservancy, and earthwork. The cleaning bucket and the inclined bucket are suitable for the trimming of slopes and other planes, and the large-capacity dredging and cleaning of rivers and ditches. The inclined bucket can change the inclination angle of the cleaning bucket through the oil cylinder, which greatly improves the work efficiency.

2. Structure
Buckets are structural products, consisting of tooth base plate, bottom plate, side plate, wall plate, hanging lug plate, back plate, bucket ear plate, bucket ear sleeve, bucket tooth, tooth seat, guard plate or bucket angle and other spare parts Therefore, welding is the most critical manufacturing process of the bucket, and the welding quality directly affects the structural strength and service life of the bucket.

3. Production and equipment
Bucket manufacturing process includes blanking, turning, milling, drilling, forming, welding, grinding, sandblasting, spraying and other processes.

Bucket is a special industry equipment accessory, which requires special equipment to operate efficiently and with high quality, such as: CNC plasma cutting machine, bevel milling machine, plate rolling machine, welding positioner, boring machine, etc.
