Brokk introduces new demolition robot

Published by

Brokk has introduced the new Brokk 900 demolition robot. It builds upon and improves on the success of its predecessor, taking a big step up in power and performance. Brokk 900 has 25% more power and meets the new industry benchmark in reliability that Brokk introduced with its SmartPower technology. It comes in two models, the standard Brokk 900 with the most powerful breaker ever put on a demolition robot, and Brokk 900 Rotoboom with a high-precision rotating boom system.

Brokk is now introducing the next generation with the new Brokk 900. Leveraging the success and experiences of its predecessor, Brokk has developed the new robot to meet the extreme requirements of the toughest hard rock underground work.

The Brokk 900 is a big step up from the predecessor in many ways. The design and engineering of the machine is reinforced, the power is increased, its operation even more precise, and the new breaker is more powerful, with almost no increase in size and weight.

Using Brokk SmartPower technology to improve the powertrain, the Brokk 900 delivers a 25% increase in output power. At the same time, reliability and machine uptime meets the new industry benchmark for demolition robots set by the introduction of Brokk SmartPower a few years ago.

The Brokk 900 comes in two different models: the standard Brokk 900 with the heaviest and most powerful breaker, and the Brokk 900 Rotoboom with a high-precision rotating boom system.

The standard Brokk 900 comes with the option of two different hydraulic breakers, both of which are more powerful than the breaker on the predecessor Brokk 800.

  • BHB 1500: A 1500 kg breaker for the hardest materials. Paired with the hydraulic power of the Brokk 900, this delivers a phenomenal punch in each blow. Excellent for breaking really hard rock.
  • BHB 1300: A slightly lighter breaker for maximum productivity in heavy concrete demolition. When not breaking tough granite rock, the higher blow frequency and more nimble size of this breaker will maximise the production rate.

Of course, like with all Brokk robots, it is easy to change between the breakers to make sure that you always have the optimal attachment for the job.

The Brokk 900 Rotoboom is designed for maximum flexibility in applications where access and precision are more important than power. It has a 360-degree continuous boom rotation with smooth movements for maximum precision, it is heat protected for red-hot refractory work in metal plants, and it comes with Brokk’s patented heat-shielded hydraulic breaker.

Both Brokk 900 models come with the option of electric or diesel powertrain. The electric motor is the obvious choice for both lowest cost of operation and is most environmentally friendly. However, the new diesel engine is not far behind, meeting the toughest emissions standards that exist today. It is compliant with both the USA standard EPA Tier 4 Final and the EU Stage V standard.

Finally, serviceability has also stepped up one notch for Brokk 900. Even though the machine is big, weighing in at over 11 t, it is designed to be serviced by one person. No heavy lifting needed.

“All in all, the new Brokk 900 represents what we are known for. More power in a compact and smart package. And that stays true even for our biggest demolition robot.”, says Martin Krupicka, CEO of Brokk.

Delivery of the new Brokk 900 will start at the end of the second quarter of 2021.
