Brokk introduces SmartPower+ generation of demolition robots

Brokk has introduced its SmartPower+ generation of robots, which were recently unveiled at the World of Concrete 2024. Two of the models, the Brokk 170+ and Brokk 200+, were displayed at the show.

This new range of SmartPower+ robots provides high endurance by increasing operational uptime with consistent power delivery over time, resulting in excellent performance. According to Brokk, the machines are built with rugged components, making them resistant to shock, temperature and vibrations. The new robots and control boxes are also dust and water protected to an IP65 equivalent.

In addition, the SmartPower+ generation features a 87% reduction in cables and connectors, reducing weak points while also facilitating servicing and troubleshooting, which in turn increases the lifespan of the robot.

The new, ergonomically designed control box (weighing less than 3 kg) has tilted joysticks, easier-to-reach features and faster dual charging. The SmartPower+ control box incorporates the Brokk QuickSwitch and intuitive settings for an improved operating experience.

Equipped with intelligent systems, the SmartPower+ robots elevate the operator-machine interaction. Visual status updates through incremental light indicators allow the operator to focus their attention on the demolition work at hand while simultaneously monitoring the status of the machine. A two-way communication system delivers the status back to the operator in real time, and customised features enhance the operating experience.

What’s more, these demolition robots are capable of alerting the operator about any unwanted power supply or machine statuses, further contributing to higher uptime and overall reliability. Fast and simple settings, an increase in sensors, as well as the addition of individual tool presets, all contribute towards a more user-friendly and efficient operator interface.
