Tiltrotator makes debut for Engcon

New valve enables tiltrotator to get the most out of load-sensing hydraulic systems

The attachment is engcon’s solution toward more sustainable, electrified earthmoving practices

Swedish attachment manufacturer Engcon has unveiled its new third generation tiltrotator at a trade fair in Scandinavia.

Making its public debut at the Vei of Anlegg trade show in Norway in May, engcon’s third generation tiltrotator features integrated smart technology that the company says will create greater profitability for the end user.

The tiltrotator range includes two models – EC319 for 14-19 tonne excavators, and EC314 for 9-14 tonne excavators. Production is set to commence in the second half of 2022.

The attachment is engcon’s solution toward more sustainable, electrified earthmoving practices.

The technology within the tiltrotator is based on the company’s newly developed valve, which works with smart software to get the most out of an excavator’s load-sensing hydraulic system.

Together, the smart software and valve optimise the tiltrotator’s functions and the movements of the excavator, resulting in both a smoother and more precise digging experience.

Engcon’s newly developed tilt and rotation sensor also comes as standard in the third generation tiltrotator. The sensors feature a plug and play solution for both integrated and third-party machine control systems.

Machine wear and maintenance requirements also decrease with the new system.

Operators can use the tiltrotator system via an app which allows individual customisation, connected remote diagnostics, and mobile support.

“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,” engcon owner and founder Stig Engström says.

“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,” he adds.
