Hillhead 2016 will act as the international launch-pad for a new line of attachments and demolition tools from world-leading hydraulic hammer brand, Rammer. The attachments include Cutter-Crushers, Scrap Shears and Pulverizers. These new additions share many of the design features and the manufacturing quality characteristics that have made Rammer’s hydraulic hammer range the preferred choice of quarry operators and demolition contractors across the globe.
Rammer Cutter-Crushers (RCC Range)
The new Rammer Cutter-Crusher (RCC) range is manufactured from wear resistant HB400 steel for a longer life. Suitable for carriers in the 3.0 to 130 tons operating weight range, the RCC models (except the 290 kg RCC04R) feature a chamfered jaw design for greater penetration, a speed valve and desynchronized jaws for more precise placement and faster cycle times.
All models (other than the RCC04R) feature full hydraulic rotation for faster and more precise positioning. This system is covered by hydraulic rotation valve protection for longer motor life and reduced owning and operating costs. As a further nod towards system protection, the larger RCC models all feature forged and fully protected cylinder rods, heat-treated pins as well as bushes for a longer low maintenance life.
The smaller RCC04R may lack the powered rotation of its larger brothers, but it too benefits from a number of technological advances. A pressure intensifier system, which is installed on both cylinders, allows the jaws to deliver optimum performance with the external hydraulic system operating at normal pressure. Not only does this enhance performance, delivering the crushing power of larger and heavier competitive models, it also 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 Range)
The Rammer Scrap Shear (RSS) line-up is designed to withstand even the harshest of demolition environments. Comprising nine models that are suitable for carriers in the 2.0 to 60 tons operating weight range, the Rammer Scrap Shears are also manufactured from HB400 steel for optimum wear resistance and a long working life. They also share the same hydraulic rotation, rotation protection, heat-treated pins and bushes, and weld-free cylinder rods found on the Rammer Cutter-Crusher range.
All the new models feature a speed valve for improved cycle times and a smart jaw design that allows material to fall away from the cutting area, enhancing performance and increasing uptime. A double guide helps ensure excellent cutting jaw alignment for better cutting delivering lower owning and operating costs.
A central pin adjustment system also helps prevent jaw deviation to maintain maximum cutting performance. This system is also proven to reduce operating costs by minimizing the amount of material struck between the jaws. To further minimize owning and operating costs, each unit features cutting blades that have four usable sides that can be reversed. Tips can be replaced without welding to maintain high productivity levels.
Rammer Rotating Pulverizers (RPV Range)
Rammer is further demonstrating its commitment to customers in the demolition business with the launch of the new RPV Series of Rotating Pulverizers which comprises of four models that are suitable for carriers in the 10 to 45 tons operating weight class. Like the other Rammer demolition tools, the RPV Series is manufactured from HB400 steel, featuring heat-treated pins and bushes for a long service life.
A full hydraulic rotation, which is protected by a rotation protection system, facilitates more precise alignment for faster cycle times and greater productivity. A speed valve system reduces cycle times for greater productivity, and helps reduce stress on the hydraulic components, extending their life and reducing owning costs. The RPV jaws are designed to allow crushed material to escape from the crushing area, reducing clogging, minimizing maintenance and increasing productivity.
The RPV Series has also been designed for simplified maintenance, with easy access to key components. Cutting blades and wear parts can be changed “in the field” without special tooling to return the Pulverizer to factory specifications.
Rammer Static Pulverizers (RPV Range)
Completing the line-up of new Rammer demolition tools and attachments is the RPV range of Static Pulverizers which consists of six models with operating weights from 150 to 4,200 kg. These are suitable for carriers in the 1.5 to 45 tons operating weight class. These new models share all the features of the RPV Series, aside from the hydraulic rotation, and provide an affordable yet high quality alternative.
“The new Rammer demolition tools have been designed to meet the specific and ever-changing needs of this demanding industry,” says Rammer General Manager Rafa López. “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.”
