Rototilt collaborates with Volvo CE to provide smart integration between excavators and tiltrotators
Through a solution that provides smart integration between Volvo excavators and Rototilt tiltrotators, Volvo CE is providing end-users with the opportunity to more easily choose a Rototilt tiltrotator.
"Volvo CE is partnering with Rototilt through a global development agreement," says Chris Copeland, Rototilt's General Manager in Canada. "This is very positive and brings tremendous benefits to our customers with Volvo machines, as well as to Volvo dealers."
Excavators from Volvo factories can now be delivered ready for tiltrotator systems from Rototilt. This adds a number of benefits for both contractors and dealers. The main benefit for users is that Rototilt's control systems and sensors can now communicate with Dig Assist, Volvo's factory-installed excavation system, via a smart integration solution.
"The new platform is exciting and brings the best of what you can get today on the excavator market. Certain solutions, such as the Smart Connect solution allows different brands of TiltRotator to integrate seamlessly with our machine and Dig Assist, they are unique and bring significant customer value," says Kurt Deleu, head of excavator product management EU/INT Volvo CE.
"Contractors are demanding a more seamless integration of systems between excavators and the tiltrotators they choose," says Copeland. "With this integration now being provided on the excavators coming from the factory, this is a really good solution. In short - a solution that responds to customers' needs in a good way."
The result is a much safer, and consistently better implementation of the tiltrotator system on new machine installations.
The agreement applies worldwide, and the technical solution has been developed in a joint project with Volvo's development department during 2020 for introduction in stages. Volvo's excavators EC250 and EC300 are first out and delivery will begin as early as the beginning of 2021.
