Rototilt expanding control system to fit more excavators

Tiltorotator will now be compatible with small machines.

Rototilt is expanding "Rototilt Control," which includes tiltrotators and joysticks, to fit more excavators.

“Smaller excavators are also becoming increasingly advanced," said Sven-Roger Ekstrom, product manager, in a statement. "The innovations within Rototilt Control can provide significant advantages for these particular machines.”

Rototilt Control was launched last year with RC System, RC joysticks, and RC tiltrotators. The RC3 tiltrotator, which is designed for excavators weighing between 6-12 metric tons, is also being added to the line-up.

“The next step for the Rototilt Control product platform is focusing on compact machines, with the RC3 being the first in line,” said Ekström. “The compact segment has grown more and more in recent years. With dedicated space for the excavator system and improved hydraulics, the RC3 can offer even greater precision for smaller excavators.”

The new tiltrotators in the RC series are used together with the RC System control system. According to Ekström, the new display and functions for safety locks can be particularly beneficial, especially since the SecureLock safety solution is included as standard.

“Safety in the workplace is crucial. SecureLock is based on a patented solution incorporating electronic sensors in the safety lock, and satisfies the high safety demands set out in EN474,” he says. “The fact that SecureLock is included as standard in the RC series and that the display in RC System has built-in buttons for managing the safety lock is an important step in our product development.”
