HATCON has not even been out a year, and yet it is already assisting companies improve their maintenance and monitoring of their breakers in many quarrying applications.
This week Quarrying Magazine wrote an article regarding the innovative product from Epiroc. This product offers a new digital alternative for tracking operations and locations of tools. This offers a level of information previously not available to quarry and operations managers.
HATCON which stands for Hydraulic Attachment Connectivity is just another excellent product coming from the geniuses over in Stockholm Sweden.
This product was originally produced to assist with tracking of Epiroc’s German hire fleet, with firsthand experience in needing to track multiple tools across many locations, Epiroc were able to leverage the experience and information from utilising this equipment to build a robust and reliable piece of equipment, which they now want to share with the world.
They offer a factory fit kit, and all new Epiroc tools come with pre drilled mounting holes to suit. But if you have an older tool Epiroc also offers a retrofit kit. The brilliance of the retrofit kit is that it is also compatible with other brands. Epiroc wanted to make sure that this innovative solution was available to everyone. They do recommend though that not all features can be accessed by the retrofit versions, as it may lack some of the required integrations for the full feature set.
