Fully automatic work tool adapters for Rammer Rockbreakers


Sandvik and Steelwrist have entered into a cooperation for fully automatic work tool adapters for Rammer hydraulic rockbreakers.

Collaboration between the two companies aims to increase productivity and reduce downtime for end users as the interface between rockbreaker and adaptor plate can be optimised for performance and compatibility.

“Rammer rockbreakers are known for reliability and with the SQ system adapter kits engineered by Steelwrist we can ensure best possible performance and effectiveness also when using fully automatic quick couplers,” says Jari Paajanen, product line manager at Sandvik Rock Processing Solutions.

Steelwrist SQ Auto Connection System increases safety and uptime as operator can change hydraulic powered work tools in seconds without leaving the cabin and work environment remain clean and there is no risk for oil spilling.

Steelwrist SQ products are compliant with the global Open-S industrial standard for fully automatic couplers.

“Steelwrist SQ products together with Rammer hydraulic rockbreakers create a perfect combination as our QPlus technology enables higher hydraulic flows with less pressure drops than other systems on the market,” explains Toni Ylitalo, SQ product line responsible at Steelwrist.

As the global demand for fully automatic coupler systems is rapidly increasing, Rammer will start offering Steelwrist SQ-type adapter kits that are custom engineered to fit Rammer rockbreakers directly from the factory in the new year.

Rammer, the most respected brand for hydraulic attachments, is a part of Sandvik Rock Processing Solutions business area that operates within Sandvik Group, the global engineering giant in mining and rock excavation, metal-cutting and materials technology.

Rammer offers a comprehensive range of powerful, productive and durable hydraulic rockbreakers that are suitable for carriers in the 0.6t to 120t operating weight class and with 10 types of boom system options and specialty demolition attachments, there is a Rammer solution for virtually any demanding breaking application that requires a boom-mounted percussive tool.
