A new remote-controlled demolition machine was showcased at World of Concrete 2019 in Las Vegas.
The mid-sized robot is 1.2 m wide and can handle attachments weighing up to 500 kg. The three-part arm rotates 360° and extends 6.5 m vertically and 6 m horizontally.
The Brokk 300 demolition robot features 40% more power than its predecessor. It is fitted with a hydraulic breaker and can pair with beam grapples, clamshell buckets, concrete crushers, demolition and scoop buckets, drills, drum cutters, metal shears, planers, rock splitters, shotcrete nozzles, sorting grapples and rock splitters.
“The design shows our engineers’ responsiveness to operators’ ever-increasing demands for using bigger, more powerful breakers without sacrificing safety or maneuverability or taking up more space on the jobsite.” said Brokk group CEO Martin Krupicka.
An intelligent electrical system protects the machine from damage caused by unreliable power supplies, while optimising power and hydraulic performance in extreme temperatures.
It is designed with the aim of extending machine life and simplifying maintenance. The robot has 70% fewer cables, as well as hardened components, light-emitting diode, or LED, headlights, accessible grease points and hydraulic hoses.
A remote-control box incorporates adjustable straps, intuitive controls and professional-grade radio technology with a 300 m working range.
