Volvo Construction Equipment (Volvo CE) announces the extension of its business relationship with Steelwrist for the supply of factory-fitted Tiltrotators for excavators to include the supply of excavator quick couplers.
Steelwrist’s new quick-coupler technology is designed to always maintain the attachment in a safe position, even if the operator should fail in the connection procedure. The development of this technology is based on the increasing quality and safety demands in standards and from markets.
“The Volvo CE quick-coupler strategy is based on the Symmetrical Quick Coupler standard and Steelwrist’s patented front pin lock coupler technology,” explains Karl Serneberg, Volvo CE’s global director of attachments. “Our strategic partnership with Steelwrist gives us a competitive advantage in this area.”
“A lot of effort has been put into our casted quick-coupler technology,” says Stefan Stockhaus, CEO, Steelwrist AB. “We wanted to build a product that takes safety to a new level, yet maintains a compact design that is so crucial for fuel efficiency and productivity. We are happy that this is recognized by Volvo CE.”
