Unnecessary downtime can be avoided with Rammer

Remote monitoring enables customers to track and monitor their rockbreaker usage without the need to go to site to collect data.

Getting the work done reliably and on time is essential and Rammer has earned a reputation for providing efficient and reliable equipment, giving customers the peace of mind that it will deliver what it promised.

With integrated smart technology and customer-focused features, the Rammer Excellence line of rockbreakers live up to their name.

Rammer’s revolutionary operating principle combines stroke length, blow energy and idle blow protection.

This allows operating parameters and output to be adjusted to match individual carriers and applications, improving hydraulic efficiency and safety.

Two simple working mode selectors allow the rockbreaker to be purpose-matched to individual applications and materials.

They are a long-stroke setting with a lower blow frequency for optimum breaking in hard materials, such as granite and reinforced concrete foundations, while a short stroke setting delivers higher blow frequency which is ideal for softer materials, such as limestone. 

Idle Blow Protection

One of the main issues that can cause rockbreakers to prematurely break down is blank firing.

The piston strikes the tool and the tool strikes the rock, but if the piston doesn’t strike the tool, all the energy that’s normally transferred goes back inside the rockbreaker and causes internal components to fail over time.

Rammer has developed anti-blank firing which stops the unit working unless the piston is striking the tool.

The Idle Blow Protection (IBP) is easily adjustable on-site and ensures the rockbreaker can’t be operated until pressure is placed on the tool.

It also protects the tool from failures and tie rod stress, reduces oil overheating and protects against premature failures – which extends the life of the tool over time. 

Constant and high breaking power

Rammer’s patented Fixed Blow Energy operating principle ensures maximum impact energy regardless of the operating oil flow.

This means that every impact – from first to last – is at maximum power, regardless of oil flow or frequency.

Unlike thinking rockbreakers which try to anticipate how hard a rock is and how hard to strike, the Rammer will strike with the same power each and every time.

This reduces breaking time, maximising productivity on site.

Membrane accumulators

Rammer Excellence Line of Rockbreakers come with high pressure membrane accumulators to ensure constant and high breaking power is maintained at all times.

This simply means that they maintain their impact energy as they do not leak gas compared to piston accumulators, in which the gas behind the piston slowly leaks through the seals.

Instead, Rammer tools store nitrogen gas inside the rockbreaker which can last for extended periods of time, similar to the air in car tyres which only needs testing with regular servicing.

Avoiding gas leakage means avoiding a loss of impact energy and excessive downtime – plus the additional cost due to regular re-gassing. This make Rammer Rockbreakers a reliable and productive partner for your carrier, particularly in remote locations.

Conveniently scheduled maintenance

Rammer was the first on the market to add remote monitoring system for hydraulic rockbreakers.

The RD3 monitoring device is attached to the rockbreaker reporting back to the customer detailed information about the rock breaking operation in real time via cloud based My Fleet platform.

Customers can simply log into the MyFleet platform to see all the data on operating hours, how the rockbreaker is being operated and required service intervals helping them manage service periods and minimize machinery downtime by scheduling maintenance during times of least impact on production.
