Published 4/3 at 11:34

Brokk, announced the launch of Brokk SmartPower+, said to be a groundbreaking new generation of robots, at World of Concrete 2024 in Las Vegas, Nevada. In addition, Brokk exhibited its latest generation of demolition robots, the Brokk 170+ and Brokk 200+.

Brokk’s new range of SmartPower+ robots are designed to provide unmatched endurance by increasing operational uptime with consistent power delivery over time, resulting in what the company says is unmatched performance. Engineered with rugged components, Brokk’s newest generation is designed to be resistant to shock, temperature, and vibrations. All new robots and control boxes are dust and water protected to an IP65 equivalent and are said to provide outstanding reliability regardless of the work conditions. Brokk’s SmartPower+ generation also includes an 87% reduction in cables and connectors, reducing weak points while also facilitating servicing and troubleshooting, which in turn, increases the lifespan of the robot.


Joy of operating

Brokk SmartPower+ is said to revolutionise the operating experience for both seasoned professionals and new operators alike. It has been designed to deliver more precision, better response times, and ease of operation, to contribute to what Brokk says is the ‘joy of operating’. Brokk’s SmartPower+ generation is said to redefine the operating experience by introducing a new and improved lightweight control box weighing less than 3kg, contributing to more enjoyable and comfortable work shifts.

The new ergonomically designed control box features tilted joysticks, easier to reach features, and faster dual charging. Brokk’s SmartPower+ control box includes the Brokk ‘QuickSwitch’ and intuitive settings for an improved operating experience, making it easier than ever to operate a Brokk robot, and in turn, easier to find and train operators. With Brokk’s new range of SmartPower+ robots and what Brokk says are state of the art features, operators can perform the demolition task at hand without shifting their gaze from the machine between commands, and as such, without compromising on performance or safety.

“With nearly five decades of experience, Brokk understands the challenges many industry professionals face in finding skilled operators to get the job done right,’’ said Martin Krupicka, CEO of Brokk Group.


Intelligence at its core

The new generation of robots have been designed to elevate the operator machine interaction, focusing on added intelligence for the benefit of the operator. Visual status updates through incremental light indicators allow the operator to focus their attention on the demolition work at hand while simultaneously monitoring the status of the machine. A two way communication system communicates the status back to the operator in real time, while customised features are said to enhance the operating experience.

Brokk’s SmartPower+ generation is designed to be much smarter too, alerting the operator about any unwanted power supply or machine statuses, further contributing to an increase in uptime and overall reliability. Brokk SmartPower+ is enabled for the future with ‘over the air’ upgrades. Fast and simple settings, an increase in sensors, as well as the addition of individual tool presets, all contribute toward a more user friendly and efficient operator interface.
