Brokk launches ‘groundbreaking’ new generation of demolition robots

BROKK has announced the launch of a ‘groundbreaking’ new generation of remote controlled demolition robots.

The Brokk SmartPower+ range has been unveiled at World of Concrete 2024 in Las Vegas where the Brokk 170+ and Brokk 200+ models are being displayed.

The manufacturer said the robots provide ‘unmatched endurance’ with ‘rugged components’ helping to make them resistant to shock, temperature and vibrations. All new robots and control boxes are also dust and water protected to an IP65 equivalent.

Brokk added that the SmartPower+ generation includes an 87% reduction in cables and connectors, reducing weak points while also facilitating servicing and troubleshooting.

A ‘new and improved’ lightweight control box weighing less than 3kg is designed to contribute to more enjoyable and comfortable work shifts. The control box features tilted joysticks, ‘easier-to-reach’ features, and faster dual charging.

“With nearly five decades of experience, Brokk understands the challenges many industry professionals face in finding skilled operators to get the job done right,” said Martin Krupicka, CEO of Brokk Group. “This is precisely why we are committed to creating solutions for both seasoned professionals and new operators alike, setting a new benchmark in the demolition landscape.”

Visual status updates through incremental light indicators allow operators to focus their attention on the demolition work at hand while simultaneously monitoring the status of the machine. A two-way communication system communicates the status back to the operator in real time, while customised features are aimed at enhancing the operating experience.

The SmartPower+ range alerts operators about any unwanted power supply or machine statuses. ‘Fast and simple’ settings, an increase in sensors, as well as the addition of individual tool presets, all contribute toward a more ‘user-friendly and efficient’ operator interface, Brokk added.

“We are thrilled to introduce Brokk SmartPower+ and a new generation of demolition robots that redefine the demolition landscape,” Martin Krupicka added. “This innovative advancement reflects Brokk’s dedication to pushing the limits and providing operators cutting-edge that surpass expectations.”
