POWERHAND VRS 200 Series
Welcome to the future of vehicle dismantling with Powerhand VRS
Traditional manual methods of removing high value materials from ELVs can be labour intensive and costly, in many cases making the process economically unviable. Although a four-tine scrap grab will allow extraction of the engine, much of the added value materials are left behind, resulting in the end of life vehicle dismantler missing out on great potential profit.
Like a vulture would dissect its prey, the VRS clamp arms pin down the vehicle to allow the grapple to systematically pull the valuable materials away from the lower value vehicle body shell. The knife blades on the clamp arms of the VRS 200 allow engine and transmission assemblies to be split from the engine block.
The Powerhand VRS is the ultimate combination of power and dexterity. The grapple features a slender, plier like shape providing an unbroken line of sight from the operator to the vehicle, allowing valuable materials like the copper wiring loom to be extracted from even the tightest of areas. High power hydraulic cylinders and high torque rotation unit gives the VRS the power to effortlessly dissect the vehicle.
We understand that in a demanding, fast paced industry, productivity is paramount. That’s why the VRS is built to work, all day, every day. Manufactured 100% from high strength Swedish alloy steels, meaning you can maximise your profits without the worry of downtime.
Copper WIRE EXTRACTION
Much of the value in an ELV is often hidden in the copper wiring loom
The Powerhand VRS 200 allows easy extraction of the copper wiring loom from a vehicle. The slender design, plier like grapple, creates a straight line of sight from the operator to the vehicle, making wire extraction from the tightest of spaces an effortless task.
Use the multi-tool on the VRS clamp legs to remove unwanted plugs from the wiring loom, leaving only the high value wiring to be recycled.
Precision and power make heavy steel extraction a simple task
Removal of heavy steel axle and suspension components
Use the precision of the shear on the side of the VRS grapple to cut through the suspension mount. Leaving only one side attached. Then the power of the rotation unit can be unleashed to simply corkscrew the remaining suspension mount away from the vehicle body. Leaving the vehicle shell behind and bringing you the added value of the heavy steel.
Use the VRS200 clamp legs to split apart engine and transmission assemblies
The VRS200 clamp legs have two sets of blades on the inside. The high power hydraulic cylinders allow the operator to use the blades to split aluminium and alloy steel components from the engine block with precision and ease.
The horizontal blades are used to split the engine head from the block. While the smaller vertical blades are purpose built to split the gearbox from the engine.
- Hold down and clamp vehicles using the machine mounted clamp arms.
- Oversized materials can be cut to size using the grapple mounted shear.
- Use the grapple, engine clamp and central shear to easily separate ferrous/nonferrous metals from the engine/transmission assemblies and remove the cylinder head from the engine block.
- Robust enough to handle heavy materials, yet the nimble jaws of the grapple allow easy removal of wiring looms, starter motors and alternators. Once the valuable wiring loom has been removed,
- use the multi-tool to strip off any unwanted electrical components.
- Use the grapple mounted shear to quickly cut through the exhaust and catalytic converter.
