Indexator expands XR hydraulic rotator range

Smaller XR 300 model designed for both rigid and dangle mounting slew bearings in applications from scrap to forestry and oil & gas

Indexator expands XR hydraulic rotator range

Indexator has launched a smaller model, the XR 300, as part of the company's XR range of hydraulic rotators. The XR range comprises compact, powerful rotators with heavy-duty bearings, designed for extreme applications where rotator function requirements and load capacities are especially high. Units are optimally designed for both rigid and dangle mounting slew bearings, high performance and long service life, for handling large loads. 

The new XR 300 is designed to handle both positive and negative axial loads up to 9 tonnes. The model is also built for a radial load tolerance of 7 tonnes and is thus ideal for applications with high side loads such as rigid mounting sorting grapples on excavators, or dangle mounting, ideal for application in  scrap or timber handling, as well as oil & gas applications. 

In common with other models in the XR series, the XR 300 has a patented torque transfer design. "In a nutshell, the technology means the swivel and motor are not affected by external forces, which provides major service life benefits compared to competing solutions," says Johnny Karlsson, Area Sales Manager at Indexator. Thanks to the XR-series' patented torque transfer solution, external forces acting on the bearings do not affect the motor and swivel inside the Rotator. This extends service life significantly in comparison with competing solutions.

Another feature that benefits service life is Indexator's tried-and-tested vane motor - the only compact rotator on the market using this principle. While the vane motor provides high torque, it is also very forgiving in case of forced roation and large slewing masses. The modular design with slew bearings, motor and swivel in separate modules, makes service and maintenance easy. "There's never room for unscheduled downtime anywhere rotators are used. Because they simply have to keep on working, hour after hour, high reliability is just as important as high-performance," says Johnny Karlsson.

To make sure the XR 300 can do the job, it has been rigorously tested, both in a test environment and in the real-world scenario's machines and tools encounter. The result is a rotator with long service life that delivers performance every day.

The XR 300 is a rotator size eagerly awaited by customers, and market demand is high, especially from the customers who saw the rotator's benefits when they participated in the prototype tests. Indexator will begin series production at the end of the year and as of January 2019, the XR 300 will be in full production.

"There is great demand from machine manufacturers and every possibility that this size segment will be the largest in the entire XR series in terms of volume," says Karlsson. The XR range is available in several sizes and models with different bolt patterns and extra channels for central lubrication and cable pass through.

How to streamline C&D waste processing to increase profitability

For C&D recyclers, waste haulers, demolition contractors and landfills, there is a growing opportunity to profit from rethinking processes. Although every operation is different, by streamlining the front end of the C&D operation processes with purpose-built technologies, recyclers can tap into new end markets, accommodate higher material volumes, stay ahead of regulatory restrictions, increase recovery rates and add commodity revenue, while decreasing labor and other costs.
