Epiroc has added two new models to its Combi Cutter range.
Designed for carriers in the 20 to 30 ton and 25 and 40 ton operating weight classes, the new CC 2300 and CC 3100 offer a combination of short cycle times, easy handling and simple maintenance.
The CC 2300 and CC 3100 are suitable for practically any kind of primary demolition work. The cutting blades on all versions are replaceable as well as reversible and the attachments may be equipped with different sized jaws according to requirements.
Like other attachments in the Combi Cutter range, both the CC 2300 and the CC 3100 are available with two jaw versions, the Universal version and the Steel cutting version.
The Universal version is ideal for light- to medium-duty building demolition and heavy-duty industrial demolition involving heavily reinforced concrete.
The Steel cutting version is specifically designed for cutting steel profiles in general steel structures.
With the CC 2300 and the CC 3100, the cutter body features two hydraulic cylinders with integrated speed valves for minimum cycle times and minimum fuel consumption. Fully protected by piston rod guards, the cylinders deliver virtually constant closing force, which remains high even when the jaws are almost closed.
As well, the two jaws moving independently, eliminating displacement forces on the cutter and the carrier.
The hydraulic drive gives 360-degree endless rotation, allowing precise handling and optimal positioning. If the cutter grips the material at an oblique angle, a built-in pressure relief valve allows a self-acting movement that brings the cutter jaw into the ideal position. This valve effectively protects both the carrier and the cutter from potentially damaging reaction forces.
A modular design and the fact the jaws are mounted on one central bearing pin, allows the cutter jaws to be changed easily on-site.
Thanks to the CAPS coupling and positioning system, the two jaws may be quickly removed and refitted as one unit. CAPS makes handling of the dismounted jaws much easier as the two jaws remain connected even after they have been removed from the body. Refitting is simple using the special guide system supplied.
