Attendees at ConExpo 2014 received a sneak preview of the SK210D.
Kobelco Construction Machinery USA, Houston, has announced the availability of its new SK210D multidismantling machine in North America. Kobelco notes that many contractors received a sneak peak at this machine during ConExpo 2014 in Las Vegas earlier this year. Kobelco showcased the machine dismantling an automobile.
Kobelco has manufactured more than 1,000 of the machines in Japan since 1979.
Kobelco notes that machines like the SK210D are multifaceted when it comes to dismantling complex equipment that requires delicate handling, such as automobiles, where environmental laws require that steps be taken to contain oils and other contaminates that may be harmful to the environment. The speed and accuracy of dismantling automobiles with the SK210D is increased tenfold over hand dismantling, savings owners substantially on labor costs and minimizing the risk of fines, Kobelco says.
The SK210 is the first of Kobelco’s demolition machines available in North America. It is designed to take apart vehicle bodies, engines and other metal components with precise, safe and efficient operation.
The equipment has two specialized crushers that allow for different dismantling tasks:
- a multidismantling crusher is suited for small-scale separating and the sorting of all types of metal products, including small parts such as electrical fittings and harnesses; and
- an optional vehicle-dismantling crusher offers a powerful grab, increased cutting force and rotational torque powerful enough to cut through a chassis and frame, the company says.
The Kobelco Innovation Clamp Arm features a bowl-shaped grip and powerful cutting teeth with different shapes on the right and left sides to enable efficient bending, breaking and tearing, the company says.
The advanced features highlight Kobelco’s dedication to providing equipment that functions efficiently and safely in real-world worksite situations and conditions, according to Kobelco.
