Engcon to debut third generation tiltrotator system

ENGCON has announced plans to launch its third generation tiltrotator system this year.

To meet future demands, the manufacturer said the system is ‘taking progressive steps towards sustainability’, applying smart technology to reduce energy consumption and is adapted ready for the electrification of excavators.

The third generation tiltrotator system will be presented at the Norwegian trade fair Vei og Anlegg later this month, with production set to begin in the second half of 2022.

The technology is described as being based on a newly developed type of valve in combination with a smart software that collaborates with the excavator’s load-sensing hydraulic system. This optimises both the tiltrotator’s functions and the excavator’s movements.

Stig Engström, founder and owner of Engcon, explained, “To meet increased demands for electrification, digitalisation, security and sustainability, we have developed a solution adapted for the future of digging. Our new tiltrotator system shows that Engcon is at the forefront of innovative solutions that drive the development forward to reduce dependence on fossil fuels and thus the climate impact of excavators.”

For full compatibility with today’s excavator systems, Engcon added that it builds in a newly developed tilt and rotation sensor as standard in this product.

“The third generation will be our premium offering where the excavator operator gets the very latest technology as standard, while at the same time they get an energy-optimised excavator that becomes even smoother to drive,” Engström added.
