Rototilt and Steelwrist Team Up to Bring Symmetrical, Fully Automatic Quick Couplers to Excavators

As fully automatic quick couplers continue to grow, and more manufacturers release solutions, the question about interchangeability between different manufacturers has become an increasingly important topic. Today, Steelwrist and Rototilt jointly announce the goal of achieving global interchangeability between work tools with integrated oil couplings within the Symmetrical Standard.

The ambition with an Alliance is based on Symmetrical Quick Couplers (S-type), the well-known open industry standard that is the world’s fastest growing type of excavator quick coupler. The main goal of the Symmetrical standard has always been to safeguard interchangeability between manufacturers of quick couplers, tiltrotators, buckets, and work tools. One reason for its success is that it is open and not controlled by one specific manufacturer.

“When we now launch and extend our QuickChange range of full automatic quick couplers it was only natural to build on the Symmetrical standard, which we have followed since 20 years, that was already compact, relatively lightweight, and robust,” says Anders Jonsson, CEO of Rototilt Group AB. “The addition of oil couplings and an electrical interface will make the product unrivalled on the international market.”

Among the benefits of the alliance will be increased safety, flexibility, and efficiency for excavator owners, excavator operators and ground personnel as work tool interchangeability is ensured between different manufacturers products. Retrofitting retrofit adaptor brackets to used and new buckets and work tools will also be more cost-efficient.

The ambition of an Alliance is that it should be open to join for other manufacturers that have developed compatible solutions.

“The main reason why we have been working to create the Alliance is that we do not believe in locking customers into proprietary solutions that they must live with forever,” says Stefan Stockhaus, CEO of Steelwrist AB.
