Kobelco introduces SK210D car dismantling machine
Latest addition to Kobelco's excavator range is the SK210D car dismantling machine
Kobelco Construction Machinery Europe’s latest addition to its excavator range, the Kobelco SK210D, is a Japanese-made specialist car dismantling machine.
The Kobelco SK210D, which will start to arrive in Europe in April 2015, is a dedicated unit designed to safely and carefully separate a full automobile chassis into manageable parts prior to disposal thus reclaiming key metal and recyclable products.
It can also be used in agriculture, aviation, white goods and truck reclamation, where precise dismantling and component removal is required.
Precision clamping and removal of smaller components, such as intricate strands of wiring harness, are removed from a car’s chassis by a multi-role crusher that features jaw-like pincers (nibbler) attached to the main operational arm.
Kobelco says that the crusher unit opens and closes according to the operator’s input via a proportionate control button on the joystick. The fully rotational crusher head can rip, tear and crush with an abundance of delivered hydraulic torque.
