HKS at GaLaBau in Nuremberg

Wächtersbach / Nuremberg, 14.-17. September 2016 - At this year's GaLaBau in Nuremberg HKS Dreh-Antriebe GmbH represents its innovations with the RotoBox, the TiltRotator and XtraTilt - the tilting actuator of HKS - with an excerpt from the more than 54 versions in 18 sizes up to 100t carrier weight.

The hydraulic rotary actuator XtraTilt HKS offers cylindrical free pivotal technology for construction technology. The robust technology scores over cylinder-based systems through a much more compact size, higher reliability and a larger rotation angle. As the only modular system in its class, it grows with its tasks: from pure rotary actuator for swinging movements (XtraTilt) on the rotation assembly (RotoBox) to the combined pivoting and rotating solution with quick coupler and fixed arm connection (TiltRotator) it allows the construction equipment to be individually put together on demand.

Proven technology for new applications

It has become a generally well-known fact that for some time now helical gear actuators are in common use for the positioning of excavator buckets. The XtraTilt is used in the field of construction and civil engineering companies as well as gardening and landscaping businesses - to name just a few. The use of an HKS XtraTilt increases the efficiency and productivity of any machine. So the pivoting angle can be increased much more with the mobile bucket compared to conventional solutions to more than forty percent.

In addition, the cylinder-free construction is narrower than the cylinder based technology. Therefore also narrow buckets can be pivoted with the XtraTilt and work can be done more targeted and needs-oriented. In addition, the HKS RotoBox allows an endless left / right rotation. The new generation of the RotoBox is based on a completely new design. It became necessary saving on height and weight, while maximizing the longevity, which is now implemented. The width has also been improved and now allows the cultivation narrower and therefore lighter implements. The two oil rotary unions with up to 500l / min flow, provide even more flexibility. Depending on the application you choose our standard design saves weight and fuel, or the large rotary oil feedthrough achieves an even more powerful performance.

The TiltRotator allows simultaneous tilting with 55 ° in both directions and endless left / right rotation as a complete solution. The innovative technology reaches holding torques of up to 100,000 Nm. The Excavators can therefore remain longer in the same position, which is also a positive effect on fuel consumption. Thus, you increase your efficiency and productivity. With the compact and robust tilting device, the TiltRotator is an incomparable alternative to traditional cylinder variants, which are susceptible in comparison to the cylinder-free version made by HKS. Used as device in the TiltRotator is an optimized XtraTilt with enhanced torque and reduced height.

Founded in 1970, the mechanical engineering company produces hydraulic rotary actuators for industry, vehicle construction, mining, mobile hydraulics and marine technology. The HKS Dreh-Antriebe GmbH is a family-run company that operates throughout the world. Spread over three production sites in Germany, it cares over 190 employees, with a large number of sales partners all over the world and an export share of 60 percent. HKS will be exhibiting from 14 to 17th September in hall 7, booth 210.
