Brokk, a leading manufacturer of remote-controlled demolition machines, has launched its Brokk SmartConcept, a set of technological features that offer improvements in power management, reliability, maintainability and ergonomics. Included with the four new next generation Brokk remote-controlled demolition machines – launched at INTERMAT Paris 2018 – the technology greatly enhances the capabilities of the machines.

SmartConcept comprises three features – SmartPower, SmartDesign and SmartRemote – and is said to represent a leap forward in performance and uptime. “We designed SmartConcept to maximise machine capabilities, improve overall reliability, versatility and efficiency,” says Martin Krupicka, Brokk Group president and CEO. “The new models pack a punch. They easily handle a hammer one class size larger, while maintaining a compact build, further permitting ease of work in confined spaces.”

One of the key components of SmartConcept is SmartPower. Brokk designed the revolutionary system to withstand tough day-to-day demolition forces. In addition, SmartPower helps the operator start the machine on a poor power supply while at the same time protecting the Brokk machine from harmful faulty power. For example, the next generation B280 with SmartPower features an increased output over its predecessor – the B260 – with nearly 30-kW. This enables the robot to handle a larger class of hammer on essentially the same size carrier.

The company’s SmartDesign extends machine life and provides unprecedented ease of maintenance. With 70% fewer cables and the addition of hardened components, the models are better equipped to withstand the rigors of machine vibrations and heat generated during operation. The line features several elements to ease maintenance, including strategic, easy-to-access grease points and hydraulic hoses; LED headlights with built-in protections; and steel machine covers. Through the technology, operators not only get 360-degree rotation abilities, but they can operate ‘over the back,’ which offers heightened flexibility in confined spaces.
