Brokk has introduced the MC200 Multi Cutter to expand smaller Brokk models’ versatility for contractors in steel cutting applications. The steel cutting attachment, manufactured by Brokk’s sister company, Darda, offers a high power-to-weight ratio and compact design. It promotes safe steel material cutting in a variety of industries, including demolition, nuclear, process, food and construction.
The 10-by-13-inch (25-by-33 centimeter) Multi Cutter is 40 inches (102 centimeters) long and can be used on machines weighing 2,650 to 6,170 pounds (1.2 to 2.8 metric tons), including the Brokk 100, 120 D and 160 models. It is easy to maneuver in tight spaces, such as building interiors, due to electric operation and compact size. The attachment features a hydraulic 360-degree rotary drive for positioning and an 8-inch-wide (200 millimeter) jaw opening, able to handle a variety of metals. It weighs 265 pounds (130 kilograms), yet uses a hydraulic booster to exert 50 tons of cutting force at 3,900 psi (270 bars). To reduce costs to the end user, Darda also designed the MC200 Multi Cutter so operators can sharpen the jaws rather than replace them.
The MC200 Multi Cutter, combined with the smaller Brokk machines’ remote capabilities and arms that extend as far as 16 feet (5 meters), allows contractors to cut beams, cable, supply lines and steel pipes in hard-to-reach areas. This improves efficiency and minimizes labor costs. The attachment, paired with a Brokk machine, reduces the risk of injury to laborers by eliminating the need to climb scaffolds and ladders with handheld tools. The Multi Cutter also alleviates the risk of injury from open-flame torches. This approach can also create fire hazards and increase the risk of exposure to harmful emissions.
The MC200 Multi Cutter is one of nearly 20 Brokk attachments that operators can interchange for versatility on a jobsite. Brokk supplies a range of remote-controlled machinery and attachments around the world.
