As of January 1, 2018, the Hydraulic Attachment Tools division within Atlas Copco will become part of the Epiroc, the company that Atlas Copco plans to dividend out in mid 2018. The division manufactures excavator attachment tools such as hydraulic breakers, cutters, pulverizers, bucket crushers, shears, grapples and magnets. Also effective from that date, all the division's current products will be delivered with Epiroc product branding.
The new world-class Atlas Copco Hydraulic Attachment Competency Center in Independence, Ohio, combines a customer center, repair shop and configuration center with its own dedicated parts and supplies warehouse.
Atlas Copco Construction Equipment has introduced its new generation of bucket crusher attachments that offer higher output and greater reliability than previous models. The new bucket crushers – the BC 2500 and BC 3700 – process about 80 percent more material due to their hydraulic drive system. The BC 2500 fits 24- to 33-ton carrier weight classes, and the BC 3700 fits 30- to 42-ton carrier weight classes.
Atlas Copco’s LH series of handheld hydraulic breakers benefits contractors by having relatively high power-to-weight ratios and easy operation. This helps crews achieve maximum uptime while taking on a variety of materials, including concrete, asphalt and frozen ground. The breakers’ versatility — coupled with a relatively low cost — also contributes to a fast ROI.
Atlas Copco, has decided to discontinue its Powercrusher business, in which it manufactures and sells mobile crushers and screeners for quarrying, civil engineering and recycling.
Atlas Copco’s Hydro Magnet is the latest addition to its line of hydraulic attachments for recyling plants, scrap yards and the demolition industry. Hydro Magnets quickly and easily separate valuable iron and steel from concrete waste for subsequent recycling. The Hydro Magnet can be simply installed on a carrier with an exisiting uni-directional auxiliary circuit with a signal line to power and control the magnet, so there is no need for a generator or electric cables from the carrier. Hydro Magnets are available in two versions, as a fixed magnet (F) or a mobile (M), where the magnet is attached by the use of a chain. Load capacities range from 617 lb. (280 kg) up to 16,535 lb. (7,500 kg).
Atlas Copco’s bulk pulverizers, models BP 2050 and BP 3050, part of the company’s range of Silent Demolition tools, include key design features such as a specially angled shape and wide jaw for improved access to material and a speed valve for a more rapid open and close cycle.
