Demolition Robots Using Hydraulics for Operation

Demolishing concrete elements is a hard, time-consuming, potentially hazardous task when done manually. So, projects nowadays utilize powerful demolition robots to make this task simple and easier. This robot has applications in sectors like demolition, emergency rescue, metallurgy, nuclear energy, and more. The demolition robot has a structure of mini excavator, without a cab. The most important part of the demolition robot is hydraulically powered arms to which breakers, crushers, drills, or loader buckets are attached. The most important features of the demolition robot are compact size, flexibility, and controllability. This blog will discuss important design and working facts about demolition robots used in the industry.

The boom arm of the demolition robot contains four systems including three-arm systems and a breaking hammer system. Each of the systems contains a hydraulic cylinder and a working arm or a breaking hammer. For a demolition robot, there are three parts instead of two in an excavator. This hydraulic design makes demotion robots more flexible. Other features of demolition robots include high safety, energy conservation, operational efficiency, stable operation, low vibration, low noise, accuracy, and more. Demolition robots are ideal for applications in industries like metallurgy and cement industry, tunnel construction, rescue, mining exploitation, and more. This machine also fits with the tough ground and narrow areas.

The basic working mechanism of a demolition robot is a heavy-duty hydraulic series manipulator. An electro-hydraulic proportional hydraulic cylinder system is used for driving each joint of the demolition manipulator. The manipulator will offer different working postures and a large working range. The force required for operating the hydraulic cylinder is produced by the hydraulic pump, which pressurizes the fluid stored in the reservoir. The pressurized fluid will flow from the hydraulic pump to the cylinder through connected hoses at required pressure. The hydraulic valves will redirect the flow at the required rate in the proper direction, which enables the demolition robot to perform the required operation as desired.

As mentioned earlier, the hydraulic integrated systems in demolition robots include a walking mechanism, rotary mechanism and manipulator. For movement, the demolition robot contains a wheel or track, that enables the robot to move from one place to another for carrying out demolition operations. The demolition robot utilizes a hydraulic hammer to break concrete structures. Also, the arm end of the demolition robot contains a quick coupler to easily connect and simplify the replacement of breaker, shear, bucket, grab, drill and miller.

The initial power applied to the demolition robot can be either a motor drive or a diesel drive. The system will also include an optional cooling system for preventing heating issues and associated failures.
