“Our aim is to be a leading manufacturer and solution provider for the demolition market. To round off our offerings in the silent demolition tools segment, we are introducing a mobile shear jaw for our CC 3300 Combi Cutter”, explains Wolfgang Hohn, Product Line Manager Silent Demolition Tools.
With the new Mobile Shear (MS) jaw, Atlas Copco addresses the global demolition and recycling industry as well as scrap yards. “We are aiming at applications such as primary cutting of steel structures, cutting and sizing profiles, beams, frames and rebar”, adds Hohn.
The CC 3300 follows the design of the entire product line of Atlas Copco hydraulic combi cutters. The system with the two movable jaws and the two lifting cylinders has stood the test: it offers a constantly high crushing force throughout the entire closing process.
And the combination of a single- and double-blade jaw arm provides maximum stability even under extreme loads. The new Mobile Shear jaws (MS version) is an addition to the universal jaws (U version), steel cutting jaws (S version, for secondary reduction) and box shape jaws (B version) which are all available for the CC 3300.
A central main pin supports the cutter jaws in a stable manner. This concept also reduces the time needed to change the cutter jaws by up to 75 % compared to separately supported jaws. Both cutter jaws can be fitted and removed as one unit due to the Coupling and Positioning System (CAPS), which holds both jaws together even after they have been removed. Since the cutter jaws can be changed on site the time consuming process of bringing the arms to the shop is a thing of the past. In addition the blades are reversible and exchangeable on site, which also saves time.
