Rototilt presents the next generation of machine couplers

Press Release   •   Apr 19, 2017 12:32 GMT

Next generation Machine Coupler with SecureLock™ from Rototilt.

Rototilt presents a machine coupler that increases safety and service life while maintaining excavation geometry. “We have known for sometime how a good machine coupler should appear in combination with tiltrotator and tools, but our interest really grew when we identified the possibility to combine our locking system SecureLock™ with both the machine coupler and tiltrotator,” says Sven-Roger Ekström, product manager at Rototilt Group AB.

Machine couplers from Rototilt eliminate the risk of swinging or dropped tools as the world-leading locking system SecureLock™ is integrated in the coupler.

-“No chain is stronger than its weakest link. Our machine coupler means we can offer contractors an optimised package with machine coupler, tiltrotator, control system and tools. All parts of the chain are designed for harsh conditions and to interact with each other,” adds Sven-Roger Ekström.

Each excavator has its own excavation geometry. It is then important with an adapted machine coupler dimensioned to support this.

Rototilt’s machine couplers are manufactured with a shell of quenched and tempered cast steel with a wide attachment for a long service life. A heavy-duty locking wedge design gives a completely play-free machine coupler with well protected and few component parts.

-“We have literally analysed the different machine couplers on the market to pieces in order to find a strong design. It’s a question of security, well thought out excavation geometry and service life,” says Sven-Roger Ekström.

The machine coupler has undergone comprehensive testing both in the field and in the test lab in an advanced breaking rig. All to test the boundaries.

Initially the launch will concern machine couplers for S60 and S70 and are both available in variants with and without Rototilt’s locking system SecureLock™ for secure tool exchange.
