Economical Hard Rock Grinding
3 February 2019
KEMROC has expanded its range of chain cutters with the addition of the EK 110. With 25% more cutting force than the smaller model, KEMROC has closed the gap between the EK 100 and the EK 140. With the capability of trenching in rock with compressive strength up to 80 MPa, typical applications include road construction and civil engineering, trenching and pipeline projects.
Chain cutters are among the innovative products from KEMROC, a manufacturer of excavator attachments based in Hämbach in Thüringen, Germany. As with standard double head drum cutters, chain cutters have two cutter drums, but they also have a patented chain fitted with round attack picks running between them. KEMROC chain cutters are designed to excavate narrow trenches in soft to medium hard rock. There are now five models in the range of chain cutters, for use on excavators from 10 to 50 t operating weight, capable of opening narrow, deep trenches in rocks with compressive strength up to 80 MPa.
Designed to reduce the gap between the EK 100 and EK 140 models, the new EK 110 chain cutter will be making its first international, public appearance at bauma 2019. With 10% higher rated power, it generates 25% more cutting force than the smaller model. Used on excavators in the 25 to 32-ton weight range, the EK 110 provides economical production rates in rocks with compressive strength up to 80 MPa.
