New model added to successful V Cutter range
In April this year Epiroc launched its V-shaped drum cutter, setting a new standard in trenching and quarrying. The V Cutter is a brand-new way to work with rock, concrete wall and surface profiling, trenching, soft rock excavation, frozen soil excavation, and demolition. A patent pending solution, it has been rigorously tested in all these applications.
Mounting the drums in a V-shape enables a cut with a flat base and no material is left untouched between the drums. Where a regular drum cutter must move from side to side to create an even trench, an approach that causes extra wear on the carrier arm, the V Cutter can reach the same result by just going straight. This means the user can dig a more accurate trench much faster. It basically works like a bucket, which makes it easier to use, friendlier for the carrier and a lot less energy and time consuming. A seemingly simple solution with extraordinary effectiveness, the V Cutter enables energy savings of up to 40%.
In addition, compared to a chain cutter the user saves more than 40% on picks and up to 50% on maintenance time. The investment is up to 25% lower than for a chain cutter and the lower weight makes it possible to use a smaller carrier.
At bauma, Epiroc will introduce the latest addition to the V Cutter range – a smaller model suitable for carriers of 15-28 tons.
Hydraulic breaker working tools on demand: Pick your own size
Epiroc has now added a “tool on demand” concept to its supply of top-quality working tools for hydraulic breakers. Sometimes standard working tools are not enough – special applications often require a longer or shorter working tool or a special material.
High temperature applications require working tools in heat resistant vanadium steel. Other applications require longer tools or special shapes. With Epiroc, you can now order exactly what you need, in the size of your choice, with a variety of tool tip geometries. “Tool on demand” offers high flexibility based on applications or customer preferences. All lengths and shapes are available, just pick your own size.
