Schwamborn Presents Innovative Solutions for Efficiency, Health
Published: 30/12, 2022
Regardless of specialty, contractors face the same pressures. The work has to be faster, more efficient and, above all, constantly improved in terms of ergonomics and health protection. Outstanding area performance, especially for large areas, with significantly improved ergonomics are the guidelines on which Schwamborn’s latest innovations are based.
Remote controlled milling machine
The new BEF 400RC milling machine features a 15.7-in (400mm) working width, remote control, traction drive both via cable and battery, an extremely even milling pattern, maximized manoeuvrability thanks to front wheel steering and significantly improved dust extraction. The range of accessories and tools for machine has been expanded to include concrete saws (or cutting discs) in addition to the eight-point carbide milling cutters. With this milling machine it is also possible to cut expansion joints or to prepare the floor for an even greater depth removal by means of deep and even sawing or cutting. The function of setting the milling depth independently on the right and left increases the area of carbide application of the milling machine, which can be controlled ergonomically with the remote control.
Good news for the demolition industry
Winner of several innovation awards, the WDS 530 wall and ceiling grinding machine can now also be used with excavators. In combination with a quick coupler with swivel rotor, de-coating is now possible in all conceivable angular positions, even when dealing with contaminated material. With the help of optimised dust extraction, the disposal volume can be reduced to a minimum. The WDS 530 not only accelerates the work that is hazardous but also helps to reduce long-term disposal costs. For smaller spaces, Schwamborn’s recently introduced WDS 250 offers considerable maneurverability, and can be operated with a mini excavator with an electric drive. This new WDS 250 works with a grinding radius of 9.8 in (250mm) and can be fitted with grinding and de-coating diamond tools.
New generation of diamond tools
For de-coating, subsoil preparation and renovation for the production of concrete floors, Schwamborn offers special tools that are perfectly matched to each other. Gaining ground is the central quality feature here and that is why the new generation of diamond tools has been given the name “Giants.” For example, the Giants “Center” clears even the strongest concrete, while the “Wide Receiver Superflex” pads provide the finishing touches at high speed. The diamond tools are available in grades AAA, AA+ and AA. Excellent results are guaranteed by the company with gradation being based exclusively on the size of the area to be processed in order to enable economic use.
Focus on dust pollution
The industry has a problem. There are fewer and fewer workers who want to expose themselves to the traditionally high levels of dust and physically demanding work. This means it is all the more important to develop machines, tools and industrial vacuum cleaners that bring lasting improvements in ergonomics and health protection. Schwamborn states that it has already set milestones here in recent years. Remote controlled machines, which no longer expose the workers directly to dust pollution, are just as much a part of the solution to these problems as a perfected and coordinated system for dust reduction. An H-certification of the industrial vacuum cleaners are just as self-evident as the connection between the machine and the vacuum cleaner, which is still often identified as a weak point. Schwamborn’s machine adapter suction system, which has now been further enhanced, and is constantly being improved, ensures a significant reduction in construction site dust
