World Demolition Awards 2023 - Innovation: Tools and Attachments shortlist
PRODUCT: SH Eagleshears 3
Mantovanibenne’s SH Eagleshears 3 are designed to handle a range of demolition and recycling applications, from demolishing structures and cutting scrap metal to processing vehicles.
Compared to the manufacturer’s SH2 range of shears, the Eagle 3 line provides an 18% increase in cutting force and has a 3% larger opening that helps maximise work when scrapping.
The lower and upper jaws of the SH Eagleshears 3 are cut from 160-mm-thick Hardox steel plate, which is completely milled to keep the mechanical characteristics of the steel unchanged and to avoid possible weakening due to high temperatures during both the cutting process and the machining phase.
PRODUCT: RCC45 Concrete Cutter
Rotar’s RCC45 Concrete Cutter is designed for heavy industrial demolition projects, such those involving bridges, parking garages and other structures that comprise reinforced concrete.
The RCC45 has a wide jaw opening with wear-resistant, replaceable teeth and comes with Ramplifier 2.0. This integrated technology provides greater cutting power to the jaws by doubling the input pressure to a maximum of 700 bar.
The RCC45 also includes the fully integrated OQ90 quickcoupler adapter.
PRODUCT: Q14 - electrical connector for fully automatic quick couplers
Rototilt says its Q14 electrical connector increases reliability for fully automatic quick coupler systems, as it has more pins with larger contact surfaces that increase the reliability of a fully automatic quick coupler system, and can handle higher data capacity.
It has a protected design and becomes completely watertight in the coupled position. The design of the connector makes it self-cleaning, with the pins clear of any dirt and corrosion during the actual coupling sequence when the contact surfaces meet.
