Versatility and reduced jaw change times with the Kinshofer Multi-Quick processorPublished 3/7 at 12:25
The Kinshofer Multi-Quick Processors (MQP), have been developed to produce effective cycle times, reduced jaw changing times and deliver an impressive power to weight ratio.
The attachments allow demolition and recycling industry contractors to use one attachment with several jaw sets instead of buying several tools for different applications. Contractors are able to choose from six to eight jaw sets, depending on which of the four MQP models they choose, including dedicated concrete, steel or tank jaws, as well as combination and specialty jaws.
The MQP features Kinshofer’s DemaPower cylinder technology. The cylinder uses four chambers instead of the two found in other attachments, resulting in 20% more surface area within the cylinder. That allows the MQP to exert up to 25% more power from a smaller attachment, resulting in what the company considers to be the best power to weight ratio in its size class. Higher power in a smaller tool also improves efficiency and performance in high reach demolition, a practice that’s becoming more common in the U.S.
The double acting speed valves and innovative cylinder technology also gives the MQP superior jaw closing and opening speed with cycle times as fast as 5 seconds. With the attachment’s fast cycle times and high power, contractors can complete jobs as much as 20% faster. Furthermore contractors can change MQP jaws faster, easier and more safely thanks to the company’s DemaLink system.
Kinshofer’s jaw offering include the Combi jaw for primary demolition and dealing with a mixture of concrete and steel. The Demolition jaw is for primary demolition of heavy concrete structures; the Pulverizer jaw for primary or secondary demolition, as well as some steel cutting; the steel jaw for primary and secondary demolition of steel structures and scrap; the Tank Shear jaw is used for primary and secondary demolition, including demolition of tanks and cutting steel plates. Finally the Universal jaw is designed for primary and secondary demolition of concrete decks.
The MQP Steel and Combi jaws feature Kinshofer’s DemaGuide™ system, which uses a guide plate to provide additional stability at the pivot point. The extra stability means greater cutting efficiency and precision. The MQP also comes equipped with twin rotation motors, which boosts rotation power and reduces the risk of the attachment shifting or rotating on its own, causing potentially dangerous situations. The MQP additionally includes a safety system that reduces the risk of dangerously high pressures within the rod cylinder.
In addition to offering exchangeable cutting edges as standard, Kinshofer crusher attachment teeth can be quickly replaced on site. The ease of replacement combined with other performance enhancing features, delivers a low cost of ownership and rapid ROI. Additionally, the company designs the tool’s oil distributor to include an extra channel to allow for water spray or grease systems.
