Indeco’s Innovative Responses to a Continuously Changing Global Market
Published: 30/12, 2022
Since 2000, Indeco has consistently responded to a progressively differentiated market in search of increasingly specialized products, expanding its product portfolio to include new equipment enriched by the company’s technological expertise gained in the manufacture of breakers. The company has since added other types of hydraulic attachments, including multi grabs and hydraulic mulching heads now being produced at US manufacturing facilities.
At Bauma, Indeco launched a number of new products and developments to complement its existing product lines. They include the ISS 8/13 shears, which can be used on excavators from 6t. The ISS 8/13 features a short and sturdy structure, low weight, balance, the design of the jaws modified to optimize the cutting power and increase maximum opening, the presence of four interchangeable and reversible knives and the latest generation piercing tip.

As Indeco’s shears get bigger, the company’s multi grabs get smaller. The IMG 300 is compatible with small excavators (starting from 3t), which has been increasingly requested by the market. Another user-driven innovation is a central greasing point for the Indeco Lube system, which is designed to automatically lubricate smaller hydraulic hammers such as Indeco’s HP 200.
Many of the past year’s product introductions were also on display. Indeco’s new IRC series rail breakers are specially designed for cutting rails for heavy- and light-rail systems. The particular design of the jaws, combined with the efficiency of the hydraulic system and the robustness of the machine body allow the cutting of rails up to approximately154 lb of mass per yd (70kg/m). Also in 2022, Indeco introduced its the new Indeconnect remote monitoring system, enabling users to see hours of work done, working position in space, hydraulic oil temperature, ambient temperature, GPS location, and other data. Users can monitor productivity, control operation, increase safety, predict and plan maintenance, and manage any rented equipment.
Double plate for double protection
Indeco states that the excellent results obtained, in terms of lengthening the tool’s life through the insertion of an anti-wear plate on the mobile jaw of its IRP pulverizers, have pushed Indeco to adopt the same precaution also on the fixed jaw. The interchangeable plate will preserve the supporting structure of the pulverizer, allowing it to withstand strong pressures, abrasions and prolonged use in any type of application.
After recently undergoing radical restyling, the range of Indeco mulchers is now being further modified through a series of small but significant improvements in the transmission and placement on the drum of the interchangeable teeth, which are now equipped with a bite limiter that prevents maximum penetration into the wood. In this way, it is possible to use the larger teeth of Indeco Cobras to obtain a finer mulching and a more fluid shredding action. This innovation reduces machine stress and increases productivity, making the most of the ratio between the weight of the equipment and the hydraulic capacity of the excavator. In addition to a number of fully owned subsidiaries worldwide, Indeco Indeco also boasts a series of commercial partnerships in countries such as India, where it is currently experiencing strong growth thanks to its collaboration with various local partners. In most emerging markets such as Africa and the Middle East, where Indeco, through its products and network of distributors, collaborates on some of the most important infrastructural works.
