With the media’s focus on a potential fuel shortage we want to reassure you that our robotic demolition machines do not run on fuels creating harmful exhaust gases. In the current environment that is particularly beneficial as there is no issue with operating them and also it results in a better environment for our operators and other site workers. At National Drilling we are very proud of our investment in our Brokk 100 robotic demolition machine, which is often described as a ‘small machine with a big appetite’. Being small has a number of benefits as you will find out below.
Benefits of using a small machine for robotic demolition
You may think that being small limits the power or ability of a robotic demolition machine, but with the Brokk 100 that is simply not the case. The Brokk 100 robotic demolition unit actually has 35% more power than the previous model of its size. It is energy efficient and its compact size means it can fit into lifts and even climb stairs. As it is not a large unit the Brokk 100 robotic demolition machine can also fit onto a standard trailer enabling easy transport between sites.
Why use National Drilling for your robotic demolition?
At National Drilling we employ all our own operators full time and they drive the vans, transport trucks and machines, so driver shortage is not an issue for our business. We place a key emphasis on training as well as health and safety at work. We ensure all our operators and staff are regularly updated on the latest rules and regulations and that they understand the implications of these on the operation of our robotic demolition machines at different sites.
Other advantages of robotic demolition
Using robotic demolition excavators on your site provides a number of additional benefits to the operator and the site environment.
- They cause only a minimal amount of noise
- Operating remotely alleviates hand-arm vibration issues and ‘white finger’ often caused by manual work in a confined space
- National Drilling have access to a range of sizes of robotic demolition machines enabling us to work in a variety of difficult and challenging locations
- Robotic demolition machines are adaptable with inter-changeable attachments enabling demolition in many restrictive spaces
- Smaller robotic demolition units can be used via a scaffold access but larger units have the power at least equal to that of conventional demolition units, but with a better control and therefore improved safety
Robotic demolition functions
At National Drilling we can provide a range of different attachments to be used by the robotic demolition machines according to the site, materials and what is required to be demolished. Some of the attachments include;
- percussive breakers which are very powerful
- hydraulic crushing jaws
- loading buckets
- concrete milling heads
