Atlas Copco is introducing its range of Smart electric pokers
Atlas Copco is introducing its range of eight Smart electric pokers at Bauma 2013 to round off the portfolio of mechanical and pneumatic pokers in its concrete vibration range.
Electric pokers are light and manoeuvrable and easy to use, and thanks to the built-in frequency converter all that is required to start working is a regular wall socket with the appropriate voltage.
Atlas Copco says the electric motor-in-head design provides the poker head with high performance, power and stable speed, while rapid acceleration helps minimise air voids within the concrete and transports them to the surface.
The motor-in-head design also helps keep vibrations in the concrete rather than in the operator´s hands and arms: the E pistol grip handle reduces hand/arm vibration even further down and the Smart series features built-in protection against shock, overload and overheating.
All electronics are built-in into a new, 30% lighter streamlined aluminium box with one on/off button.
“Getting the job done faster with fewer dips to effectively remove air voids from the concrete, is what we are aiming for. The high power, stable speed and high centrifugal force of our electric pokers provide a wide radius of action and rapid acceleration,” says Philippe Livernette, product line manager concrete equipment.
