Being the only modular system in its class, it grows with the task in hand: starting from a pure rotary actuator for shovel tilt movements (XtraTilt) and a rotation unit (RotoBox) through to the combined tilt and rotation solution with quick release and permanent shaft connection (TiltRotator), the construction technology equipment level can be tailored to meet individual needs. This power drive technology is therefore also ideally suited for upgrading. This innovative system is compatible with all conventional quick-release systems for construction machinery of up to 100 tonnes.
Tried-and-tested technology for new applications
The fully developed coarse thread technology has been tried and tested for the past ten years in excavator bucket positioning applications. The latest generation of this power actuator is now called XtraTilt. Building construction, civil engineering and road building companies as well as gardening and landscaping businesses are among the users of this new technology.
The HKS XtraTilt increases the efficiency and productivity of the machinery it is fitted to. For instance, fitting the power actuator to the excavator bucket makes it far more manoeuvrable and increases its tilt angle about by forty percent versus conventional solutions.
In addition, the cylinder-free design is about 50% thinner than cylinder-based technologies. This means that the XtraTilt can also swivel narrow backhoe buckets so that you can work more conveniently and precisely.
Powerful and reliable
The unique modular system provides a perfect solution for every task: the HKS XtraTilt module is an ideal solution for purely tilt movements of up to 180°. It is composed of merely four components and can therefore easily be maintained - even in your own facilities. The holding torques extend up to 165,000 Nm.
Besides this, the KS RotoBox permits continuous left/right rotation. It can turn at a speed of up to eight rotations per minute. With an oil throughput of up to 390 l/min, it has the largest oil rotary oil joint currently on offer. This ensures consistent and reliable high performance. A tough worm gear unit functions precisely and is self-locking. The RotoBox is suitable for all excavator classes up to 45 tonnes.
Simultaneous swivelling with 2 x 55° and continuous left/right rotation allow the HKS TiltRotator to be a complete solution. This innovative technology attains holding torques of up to 100,000 Nm. The excavator itself can therefore remain longer in the same position, which also has a positive impact on fuel consumption. The HKS TiltRotator functions around forty percent faster and more efficiently than cylinder-based tilting buckets. It is suitable for applications in excavator classes of up to 47 tonnes.
Better without cylinders
This innovative system is compatible with all conventional quick-release systems and due to the wide variety of models it is also compatible with all construction machinery up to 100 tonnes. In addition, being a sealed system, the cylinder-free technology has a high degree of wear resistance and functions very precisely. The units are controlled by the excavator operator using intuitive movement buttons. Further information and images can be found at www.better-without cylinders.com.
