Companies co-operating on fully automatic Open-S work tool adapters for Rammer hammers
SANDVIK and Steelwrist have entered into a co-operation agreement for the supply of fully automatic work tool adapters for Rammer hydraulic hammers.
With global demand for fully automatic coupler systems rapidly increasing, Sandvik will start offering Steelwrist SQ-type adapter plates directly from the factory during the third quarter of 2021.
The aim of the co-operation between the two companies is to increase productivity and reduce downtime for end users as the interface between breaker and adaptor plate can be optimized for performance and compatibility.
‘Rammer hammers are known for reliability, so we also want to ensure best-possible performance when using fully automatic quick couplers,’ said Jari Paajanen, product line manager at Sandvik Rock Processing Solutions.
‘For that reason, we want to offer SQ system adapter kits engineered to fit our hammers perfectly. Together with Steelwrist, we will make sure that the use of Rammer hammers is even more effective.’
The Steelwrist SQ auto-connection system offers customers increased safety and the ability to change hydraulic-powered work tools in seconds without leaving the cab. The deliveries from Sandvik will be compliant with the global Open-S industrial standard for fully automatic couplers.
‘Steelwrist SQ products together with Rammer hydraulic hammers create a perfect combination,’ commented Toni Ylitalo, SQ product line manager at Steelwrist.
‘Our QPlus technology enables higher hydraulic flows with less pressure drops than other systems on the market. Steelwrist and Sandvik product benefits combined together will surely be appreciated by our customers.’
