ConExpo: KINSHOFER Tooled Up

With an exciting selection of new and recently updated products on display at ConExpo 2020, KINSHOFER’s new 315 m² booth – located at F2732, Festival Grounds – will provide the perfect stage for an international audience to see the group’s creative strength and depth, first hand.

Additionally, visitors to the show will see a realignment of all KINSHOFER Group companies currently operating in North America. The strategic refocus is based on the primary needs of the customer to ensure KINSHOFER remain as easy as possible to do business with. For forty years, KINSHOFER have been offering the widest range of attachments to the US – the realignment will simply mean better customer access to the range.

With demolition tools and attachments to the fore, a new proprietary, fully automatic, retrofittable, hydraulic quick coupler system, bringing significant benefits to customers in multiple markets. Five hydraulic circuits can be coupled comfortably, allowing you to change quickly, safely and efficiently between various mechanical and hydraulic attachments from inside the cab – advantages include a low-maintenance operation and a maximum high oil-flow, which in-turn bring improved carrier machine fuel consumption and associated enviro-friendly benefits.

The KFX breaker-series, for excavators from eight to 200 tonnes, provides a powerful, high-performance, robust and reliable breaker, suitable for any type of excavator and on any single-acting hydraulic system – they are also suitable for hydraulic systems with high back pressure. Two adjustable valves come as standard: a control valve on the breaker cylinder allows the operator to adjust the number of blows generated – while a second valve allows the adjustment of the working pressure from 160 to 200 bar. An anti-blank firing system avoids blank firing when the breaker is not in contact with surface rock. Working in tunnels, or even underwater, is also made possible through the addition of optional air tubes. The KFX breaker-series is available with a range of five different breaker chisel types, suitable for penetrating a variety of surface structure.

The DXS Mobile Shear has been engineered to deliver a scrap shear with maximum force, excellent speed and the lowest weight ratio – to deliver the best levels in performance across everyday use in scrap and demolition environments. This robust tool can be used for a wide variety of tasks including demolition, waste processing and recycling. The DXS Shear is equipped with DemaPower 2.0 hydraulic cylinder technology, delivering 25 percent more power than conventional cylinders of the same size, with faster cycle times.

“Since 1980, KINSHOFER have been present in the US, seeing constant growth through organic R&D. On top of that, we’ve acquired several businesses that have added companies in the US and additional product that had to be integrated into the range. We’ve realised the time is right to refocus our distribution and realign our overall offer to better serve our customers – having been in North America for many years, it’s the right time to make everything more accessible for them,” says Thomas Friedrich, Group President and CEO. “The revised product combinations represent a unique offering, tailored to the marketplace – unrivalled breadth, depth, expertise and choice, across the widest range of applications and sectors” continued Friedrich. “Both KINSHOFER and fellow Group company SOLESBEE’S represent the benchmark in high quality attachments and have strong traction in the region – they will continue to be supported and powered by our innovative technology brands DEMAREC and AUGER TORQUE, as we look to grow our business throughout new and existing markets.”
