EXHIBITOR PROFILE EPIROC


SB solid body hydraulic breakers are designed for low maintenance.


STAND H124 Ready to Epiroc


Visitors will be able to inspect a range of attachments for tasks in construction and related industries from a newly created business.


Back in January 2017, Atlas Copco announced that this year the Group will split into two companies: Atlas Copco, which will focus on industrial customers, and Epiroc, targeting users involved in mining, infrastructure projects and work with natural resources.


The operation is reported to be proceeding according to plan with Epiroc, still a subsidiary of Atlas Copco, already operating under its own branding and identity. Subject to approval by Atlas Copco shareholders in April, Epiroc, which was originally founded in Stockholm and has customers in over 150 countries, will become a company in its own right.


“Epiroc is devoted to providing customers with products and services that enhance their productivity, energy efficiency, safety and ergonomics,” said Petra Grandinson, General Manager of Epiroc UK & Ireland Ltd. “The split will enable both groups to further strengthen our positions by delivering sustainable productivity solutions to all our customers, including the hire sector.”


In the UK & Ireland, the Epiroc organisation started operating as a legal entity in October 2017. With 53 employees plus offices and workshops in Hemel Hempstead, Stirling and Portlaoise, the new activity includes a Hydraulic Attachment Tools Division. This operation develops and manufactures the existing range of attachment tools for use in deconstruction, demolition, recycling, rock excavation, direct mining and secondary breaking in rock, reinforced concrete, steel and other materials. Applications are generally in the construction, recycling, waste, mining, tunnelling and quarrying industries. The Division is headquartered in Essen, Germany, and has production facilities in Essen and Hämbach, also in Germany, and in the Swedish town of Kalmar.


Drum cutters can be used where noise and vibration have to be minimised.


Keith Lambourne, Manager of the Hydraulic Attachment Tools Division states that, “Epiroc’s more focused product portfolio enables the team to get closer to their customers, providing improved

sales support and after-sales service, particularly in the hire market.”


Epiroc says that it is focused on addressing a number of key factors that are important to hirers and end users, such as low cost of ownership, and adds that its SB solid body hydraulic breakers are appreciated for their reliability, versatility, performance, and low maintenance requirements. Indeed, reduced maintenance is another main target in its own right, and the company believes that this is exemplified by its range of Erkat brand drum cutters for profiling, trenching and excavation tasks, particularly on sensitive sites where low noise and vibration levels are required.


Products are also developed that offer versatility across a range of applications, such as the line-up of HC hydraulic compactors which are said to be virtually maintenance-free and designed as fast and effective tools for compacting soil, trenches and embankments, as well as for driving in and pulling out posts and formwork.


These characteristics will be highlighted on Epiroc’s dedicated stand at the Show, together with details of the company’s range of tools and consumables, such as


bushes and lubricants, to protect the investment made by hire companies by keeping the tools available, and protecting their re-sale value


To complement Epiroc’s comprehensive range of hydraulic breakers for use on carrier machines ranging from 0.8 tonnes right up to 140 tonnes, the manufacturer says it is also committed to meeting the needs of more specialist companies. Additional products available include demolition tools such as selector grabs, pulverisers, combi cutters, scrap shears, magnets and bucket crushers. Having acquired Erkat, a German manufacturer of drum cutter attachments for excavators in 2017, Epiroc UK & Ireland will be selling and supporting the full range under the Erkat brand.


Keith Lambourne commented, “Drum cutters close the gap between ordinary buckets for soil excavation and hydraulic breakers for hard rock extraction. They also offer a great alternative where noise and vibration need to be kept to a minimum. The inclusion of the Erkat range demonstrates our commitment to having a product for every application in our industry.”
