epiroc
Automation, digitalization, and data-driven productivity development are transforming the entire construction industry, from tunnelling and infrastructure to demolition and waste management. Epiroc strives to help customers reach new levels by working smarter, maximizing the use of the latest technologies, and developing new ways of raising efficiency while improving sustainability.

New technologies are key in helping the customers to stay competitive. Its aim is to offer cutting-edge equipment, software and services and ensure that the customers get maximum benefits from the ongoing digital evolution.

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

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 tooltip geometries. “Tool on demand” offers high flexibility based on applications or customer preferences. All lengths and shapes are available, just pick your own size.

Epiroc’s EU-certified Bio Chisel Paste

The formulation of Epiroc´s Bio Chisel Paste is approved by the European Commission for use in environmentally sensitive applications under certificate DE/027/243. As part of Epiroc’s aim to help protect the environment, all new Epiroc hydraulic breakers are delivered with Epiroc Bio Chisel Paste as standard.

Used to grease the wear bushings in the breakers, Epiroc Bio Chisel Paste is based on special synthetic esters that are easily biodegradable and tailor-made for hydraulic breakers. The paste helps prevent bushing wear and prolongs the life cycle of the tool. The paste has high load carrying characteristics with very good separation capacity and gives excellent performance across a wide range of temperatures, from –30°C up to +1,100°C.

Epiroc Bio Chisel Paste is suitable for automatic lubrication on Epiroc hydraulic breakers with ContiLubeTM II Micro or ContiLubeTM II, or for manual greasing with a grease gun on Epiroc or any other breakers.
