Rototilt increases its pace of development


Rototilt has released four updated tiltrotator models — the R4, R5, R6 and R8. 

They are equipped with new innovative technology to extend service life, improve operation and a new rotation sensor for more precise positioning. 

“We’re constantly working on improvements and we’re not waiting to release a new tiltrotator model before making these new improvements available,” said Rototilt product manager Sven-Roger Ekström.

The unique technical solutions that Rototilt introduced with its R-series have received a warm reception with thousands of tiltrotators sold worldwide. 

However, work with development continues and is even being intensified, with a number of new refinements now being introduced for the series.

New Rototilt rotation gear

The new versions of the R5, R6 and R8 have a new rotation gear wheel with improved geometry and tighter manufacturing tolerances, providing a smoother operation with less friction. 

The new Rototilt rotation gear is also equipped with a new worm, with built-in lubrication channels that improve and further increase the service life of the tiltrotators. The models are also equipped with a new high-pressure seal.

Updated control system 

The new Rototilt tiltrotator models also come with a new rotor housing sensor that provides improved positioning through the existing RPS function. 

The sensor in the hydraulic motor has been replaced by a rotation sensor located in the rotor housing. The new sensor can read an absolute position with greater precision. 

In addition, it comes with new software for the Innovative Control System (ICS), which has a number of smart features. 

More work tool news

With the supplied in-cab display, operators can easily adjust settings and have a complete overview of the tiltrotator system.

Continuing with the new Rototilt models, the patent-pending safety lock SecureLock is available as an option, with constant monitoring to ensure tools and attachments are always securely coupled.

All this, along with an extensive range of tools, demonstrates commitment to improving work capabilities for machine operators by transforming excavators into fully-fledged tool carriers that increase both efficiency and safety. 

Production for the updated models began at the end of April, and all four models are now available for order in Rototilt markets around the world.
