The unique special designed impact surface of the working tool, is impeccably flat (to a degree not visible with naked eye) allowing the piston to hit the working tool on the full surface, transferring the maximum energy transmission to the rock.
Alloy with high purity
Epiroc working tools are manufactured from a special alloy with a very high grade of purity. High purity minimizes the risk of tool breakage by reducing weak spots, which could cause cracks.
Hardness ratio between piston and working tool impact surface
An optimum hardness ratio between the working tool impact surface and the piston is of key importance.
Epiroc working tool quality starts from the selection of the best raw material available, followed by an advanced machining process and state-of-the-art heat treatment, allowing all working tools to have exactly the same properties.
Epiroc Working Tools for hydraulic breakers are high quality, reliable and provide optimal durability. They are the right choice to protect investment on Epiroc breakers and to contribute to a low life-cycle cost and increased availability.
Every year, our facilities produce thousands of working tools that are manufactured and processed using state-of-the-art machinery and technology to ensure our finished products comply with the highest standards of quality. Our production process begins with the selection of the best alloy, which passes through our special heat treatment and ends with blasting for finishing. The result is a high-end product with the characteristics of hardness and wear resistance that provides maximum durability for tough applications, such as road construction, demolition, trenching, quarrying, tunneling and mining.
Use our working tools for increased productivity and reduced cost of operation.
Working tools have three main functions:
Transfer “all” the impact energy from the piston to the rock, for maximum efficiency
High wear resistant behavior to keep the running cost of the breaker under control
Avoid damages on the main components of the hydraulic breaker
