newspaper correspondent correspondent Lujian Jiang Li Zhang day
the depths of winter season, this reporter walked into the Second Artillery Force of a project construction site –
Northwest a place, high mountains, densely rare.
into the criss-cross of the “underground palace”, but it is a different scene: the roar of machinery, fire scattered with one hot.
here, is being built with the Second Artillery missile’s new “home.”
“Before, we are ants gnawing on a bone, with a spade shovel Foolish Old Man, but now rapidly and mystery thing, is that weapon in our hands.” Li Yang frankly told reporters.
Li Yang, an engineering unit is political commissar of the Second Artillery, who witnessed the missile project old engineering troops for decades great changes.
down he was referring to the direction of a country with “superhuman” stand in front of the monster was shocked. In the three non-commissioned officers Han Jianhong operation, it waving “Jubi” go to hard rock drilling.
this has a “superhuman,” the monster, is the famous “underground palace Optimus Prime” – the computer drill car. Operating room, Han Jianhong mouse, pull the lever, adjust the position along drill to deal with hard rock, like a needle poke, like tofu ease.
construction site, large DC fans roaring sound, dressed in anti-static clothing, wearing a miner’s lamp explosion soldiers intensely busy work. Chest with the “screeners” trades licensing staff, from time to time watching the security apparatus, the data on the implementation of the anemometer warning. With the roar of rock car, “underground palace” foot foot extended forward.
30 min Operation completed, Han Jianhong jumped operating room, he clean camouflage uniforms, spotless white gloves and face, completely subvert the traditional image of engineering. Han Jianhong said with a smile: “In the past dozen pneumatic drills, blasting all depressed, and now we are all ‘white-collar engineering’。”
reason to drill car computer called the” underground palace Optimus Prime “, is because the operator will be measured in advance good drilling depth, rock hardness and other data into the computer, car will automatically identify, quickly generate including drilling parameters, location and time of completion of key data reporting, operator only in the cab. ” sit back and enjoy. ” Over the past days of work, now just over 1 hour to complete.
Yuehua Jian, known as “elf” of the electric shovel car to transport. Do not look so small, features extraordinary: set shovel, transport, pour in one, even if more than 1 meter in narrow spaces can walk freely, walking sideways like a crab moving forward, but the speed is not slow.
soon, “elf” easy to put gravel near l cubic put a bucket inside. Turned around, it poured gravel in the rock crushing plant. Like meat grinder general, large rock was broken into small stones, sent through the conveyor belt, “underground palace”, the one go.
quickly, “underground palace” and a large segment extended forward. But do not worry to go, there is a big guy did not play it, this is unique to the engineering unit of the Second Artillery weapons — Free vibrated steel trolley.
“image that is ‘underground palace beauticians’”, Political Commissar Li Yang told reporters. “Beautician” is really a big guy, more than 10 meters long and weighing 300 tons. Its trick is to tunnel uneven hair “make” into a smooth clean “underground palace.”
manipulation in the officers and men, distributed in the steel car body vibration-free, 20 sets of hydraulic systems running simultaneously, as if constantly inflated balloon gradually outward “expansion.” Soon, in the “underground palace” section of the rock face, the body wall and the rock arch formed between a confined space. Vault window open casting, concrete pipes heard that moving directly to the vault, in the sonorous sound of the rhythm, the flood of the concrete vault, bright and clean bright moment of the formation of the wall.
in the “underground palace”, the reporter found that the missile Corps of Engineers’ construction of revolution “than on the mechanized equipment, but also being in command means the number of forward. In the past, a few kilometers in the aspect of the “underground palace”, the work of nearly a hundred points and dozens of surfaces for effective command is a problem. Today, through the machinery and equipment and officers and men who carry loaded locator card, to achieve a fine command of the commander. Include “people pretending to be positioning management system”, including 13 applications and 27 business process platform that can be distributed under the conditions of the construction schedule control, quality testing, deployment of troops, security work for an integrated command.
It is understood that the whole process has formed four major mechanical assembly line, 70% of the project amount by the machinery and equipment to complete. In this regard, Li Yang, political commissar of the image made a metaphor: “a Monkey King Bar Monkey King, we have the high-tech equipment.”
