Brokk, a leading manufacturer of remote-controlled demolition machines, recently acquired Aquajet Systems AB, the world’s leading manufacturer of hydrodemolition robots. The acquisition expands the application solutions offered by Brokk in the construction and demolition industry. Aquajet Systems specializes in concrete renovation by using extremely high-pressure water jets to remove concrete without harming the underlying rebar or causing microfracturing. The innovative machines are ideal for a variety of selective demolition applications, including bridge and road repair. The two brands will share a booth during CONEXPO-CON/AGG.
Volvo Dig Assist unlocks the full potential of an excavator’s productivity. Utilizing Volvo Co-Pilot — the award-winning in-cab interface with 10-inch high-resolution touch screen — Dig Assist allows operators to easily input job specifications and track progress along the way to ensure the job is done right the first time, every time.
“We’ve designed Dig Assist in a way that is very easy to learn and very intuitive to use — requiring as little as 10 minutes of upfront training and only a few touches to get started with a new job,” said Matt McLean, product manager, GPE products at Volvo Construction Equipment. “Once you’re up and running, there’s no more guesswork. You can design and track progress in real time — thereby reducing the need for on-site engineers, surveyors, and manual grade and depth checks. It’s very simple to use, but can make an enormous impact to productivity and job profitability.”
Brokk has introduced the Brokk 110. The electric-powered machine features increased demolition power over its predecessor, the Brokk 100, and includes the all-new Brokk SmartPower™ electrical system. The machine’s improvements increase the reliability and versatility for Brokk customers working on harsh jobsites in industries such as construction, demolition, metal processing, mining and nuclear.
Brokk has introduced the MC200 Multi Cutter to expand smaller Brokk models’ versatility for contractors in steel cutting applications. The one-of-a-kind steel cutting attachment, manufactured by Brokk’s sister company, Darda®, offers a high power-to-weight ratio and sleek, compact design. The 10-by-13-inch (25-by-33 centimeters) Multi Cutter is 40 inches (102 centimeters) long and can be used on machines weighing 2,650 to 6,170 pounds (1.2 to 2.8 metric tons), including the Brokk 100, 120 D and 160 models. It brings flexibility to the jobsite with its slim profile, making it easy to maneuver in tight spaces, such as building interiors where Brokk machines excel due to their electric operation and compact size. The attachment also features a hydraulic 360-degree rotary drive for exact positioning and an 8-inch-wide (200 millimeter) jaw opening, able to handle a variety of metals. It weighs only 265 pounds (130 kilograms), yet uses a hydraulic booster to exert 50 tons of cutting force at 3,900 psi (270 bars) to easily cut through steel. To reduce costs to the end user, Darda also designed the MC200 Multi Cutter so operators can sharpen the jaws rather than replace them.
Brokk has introduced the new Brokk 280. The machine features increased demolition power over its predecessor, includes the all-new Brokk SmartPower electrical system, and incorporates additional hardened parts for extra durability in tough environments. The improvements increase the reliability and versatility for Brokk customers working on harsh jobsites in industries such as construction, metal processing, mining and nuclear.
Brokk previewed the Brokk 120 Diesel during World of Concrete in Las Vegas. The machine is the world’s smallest diesel-powered demolition robot, weighing less than one-fourth of the Brokk 400 Diesel. The 6-gallon fuel tank and efficient operation allow run times longer than eight hours before refuelling.
Brokk, a manufacturer of remote controlled demolition machines, has released the next generation Brokk 100. The updated model features improved controls for smoother functionality in slewing and arm movements; an innovative, simplified method to integrate attachments, such as hydraulic rock drills; and an updated electrical system for improved reliability.
Brock remote-controlled demolition equipment brings Goliath-sized drilling power in a David-sized package for mining, demolition and tunneling applications with the latest TE160 hydraulic drifter rock drill from TEI Rock Drills.
