Rammer expansionPublished 15/11, 2017 at 17:30
In PDi 4 a special feature on new demolition attachment was published. Unfortunately four new releases from Rammer was not included in the feature. So here are a summary about the new products. Rammer has expanded its range of attachments and demolition tools to include cutter crushers, scrap shears, pulverizes and grapples.
Rammer Cutter Crushers (RCC Series)
The new cutter crushers are suitable for carriers in the 3t to 130t operating weight range, and except for the 290kg RCC04R, feature a chamfered jaw design for greater penetration and a speed valve and desynchronized jaws for more precise placement and faster cycle times.
All models, except the RCC04R, have full hydraulic rotation. The larger models all feature forged and fully protected cylinder rods and heat-treated pins.
The RCC04R might lack the powered rotation of the larger models, but it too benefits from several advances. A patented pressure intensifier system, installed on both cylinders, allows the jaws to deliver optimum performance with the external hydraulic system operating at normal pressure. This enhances performance, delivering the crushing power of larger and heavier competitive models, and helps protect the operator and maintenance personnel from exposure to high-pressure systems.
Integrated oil filters help protect the boosters from impurities in the hydraulic oil while a regeneration and cleaning oil distributor maintains pressure at the required level, avoiding pressure peaks as well as reducing maintenance costs.
Rammer Scrap Shears (RSS Series)
The Rammer scrap shear line comprises nine models suitable for carriers in the 2t to 60t operating weight range. They share the same hydraulic rotation, rotation protection, heat-treated pins and bushes, and weld-free cylinder rods found on the RCC range.
All the new models feature a speed valve for improved cycle times and a jaw design that allows material to fall away from the cutting area. A double guide helps ensure cutting jaw alignment for better cutting. A central pin adjustment system also helps prevent jaw deviation. This system is reduces operating costs by minimizing the amount of material stuck between the jaws. Each unit features cutting blades that have four usable sides that can be reversed and tips can be replaced without welding.
Rammer Rotating Pulverizes (RPV Series)
The Rammer rotating pulverizes comprise four models for carriers in the 10t to 45t operating weight class. Like other Rammer demolition tools, the RPV range is manufactured from HB400 steel and features heat-treated pins and bushes.
Full hydraulic rotation enables precise alignment for faster cycle times. A speed valve system reduces cycle times and helps reduce stress on the hydraulic components. The RPV jaws are designed to allow crushed material to escape from the crushing area and reducing clogging.
Cutting blades and wear parts can be changed on site without special tooling.
Rammer Grapples (RGP Series)
Rammer has complemented its demolition attachments with a 10 model line of grapples. These range in size from the 620kg RGP07R to the RGP38R which weighs 2.61t and are suitable for carriers in the 5t to 40t operating weight range.
The grapple range is suitable for demolition and material handling applications. Bolt-on cutting blades can be turned to extend their life before replacement and mechanical stoppers reduce stress upon the cylinders. All key service points can be accessed externally, minimizing maintenance time and cost and maximizing uptime to further boost Grapple productivity.
Rammer Static Pulverizer (RSP Series)
Completing the line of new demolition tools and attachments is the range of static pulverizers, which consists of six models with operating weights from 150kg to 4.2t. These are suitable for carriers in the 1.5t to 45t operating weight class. These new models share all the features of the RPV range, aside from the hydraulic rotation.
“The new Rammer demolition tools have been designed to meet the specific and ever-changing needs of this demanding industry,” said Rammer general manager Rafa Lopez. “We have listened to our customers and we have met their call for greater versatility, enhanced productivity, improved wear resistance and simplified maintenance with a range of demolition tools that are fit to wear the Rammer name.”
