Smart Cutting Technology from Kemroc at Conexpo
KEMROC excavator and backhoe attachments are commonly used in road building, excavation, foundation work, trenching, tunnelling, demolition, auger drilling and mining applications. These “Made in Germany” attachments combine high-performance with strength and reliability, allowing the company to succeed where other attachments fail on performance or economical grounds.
KEMROC’s range of excavator and backhoe loader attachments are designed to cut through difficult materials such as hard rock, solid soil, reinforced concrete and even aircraft wings and bodies. KEMROC engineers review the latest technologies and innovations related to rock grinding and trenching on a continuous basis. The R&D department never stops developing new attachments to provide the most efficient and cost-effective solutions to clients in the construction and demolition industries.
It is KEMROC’s mission to provide clients and dealers around the world with product using the bestcutting-edge technology available to cut or grind through rock, concrete, and other materials in a wide range of applications. In order to increase its level of awareness and presence on the US market, KEMROC has recently founded a subsidiary in Dallas, Texas, and is currently establishing a strong dealer network.
Standard Products, New Methods
At Conexpo, KEMROC will emphasize the unique capabilities of its EK range of chain cutters. With their patented, centrally located chain running between two cutter drums, these attachments are used to excavate narrow, deep trenches in soft to medium hard rock. KEMROC chain cutters provide some remarkable advantages compared to other cutting attachments for excavators and backhoes. They are the narrowest excavator attachments for trenching in the market – starting at 20 in (508mm) wide. They are the perfect trenching tool as they do exact size trenching from top to bottom without over-excavation, even in deeper applications.
In trenching applications, they provide up to four times the productivity of a conventional rock breaker and, 40% more productivity compared to a drum cutter. Users can even excavate crossings under utilities or pipelines. KEMROC chain cutters are safe to use near utilities as they operate with minimal vibration and low noise. Furthermore, they can work up to 100 ft (30m) underwater without any modifications and even deeper with compressed air. Last but not least, they provide better output material, which can be used on-site asbackfill, avoiding costs associated with transporting spoils to dumps and purchasing backfill material.
Conexpo will also provide the opportunity for KEMROC to showcase its new KEMSOLID division and its main product, the KSI injection excavator attachment, which a long sword with a cutting chain that can grind its way down through soils and rock. The attachment then mixes the broken material with a cement suspension pumped via hoses from a semi-mobile mixing plant. When hardened, the soil cement mixture produces a dense, structurally sound, impermeable structure. KSI stabilizing attachments form the core of a method for producing in-situ earth cement structures. The attachments are available in a range of sizes and sword lengths. KEMROC products will be on display at Conexpo in West Hall booth W42748, shared with AYA Inc. The KEMSOLID division and its large KSI injector will be shown in the outdoor exhibition area at Hammer & Steel Inc. booth D2227.
