Equipment and technology working group – G4

The working group Equipment and technology contains othe subgroup that specialized in other themes.

 

Attachments subgroup – G4S1

The working group “Equipment and technology” is meant to cover all the machinery, tools and technology used by the industry for demolition and/or recycling applications. It is coordinated by:

Mr. Gordon Hambach

EPIROC

To facilitate the work, the group “Equipment and technology” is distributed in several topics, including the subgroup “Attachments for demolition and recycling”.

The goal of the Attachments subgroup is to collect, prepare and share information related to attachments for demolition and recycling applications.

It is also part of the scope of this group to foster debate and common work about the basic guidelines related with standardization and recommendations for safe use of attachments.

The foundations of this subgroup are two think tanks held about the topic in Brussels, in 2018 and 2019. These two think tanks were debate sessions organized jointly by EDA and the Committee for European Construction Equipment, CECE.

 

Carriers subgroup – G4S2

The working group “Equipment and technology” is meant to cover all the machinery, tools and technology used by the industry for demolition and/or recycling applications. It is coordinated by:

Mr. Gilles Ronnet

CATERPILLAR

Mr. Philippe Boehrer

LIEBHERR

As part of this group, there are several subgroups, including this one about “Carriers for demolition and recycling”.

In the concept of carriers is included any type of self-propelled (combustion or electric) machinery used for demolition and/or recycling purposes. Generally, this machinery will work with some type of attachment, and could also have a quick coupler installed.

The goal of the Carriers subgroup is to collect, prepare and share information related to machinery used for demolition and recycling applications. The attachments, quick-couplers and processing units for recycling operations (crushing, screening, …) are not included in the scope of this group.

It is also part of the scope of this group to foster debate and common work about the basic guidelines related with standardization and recommendations for demolition applications.

The foundations of this subgroup are two think tanks held in Brussels, in 2018 and 2019. These two think tanks were debate sessions organized jointly by EDA and the Committee for European Construction Equipment, CECE.

 

Couplers subgroup – G4S3

The subgroup “Couplers” is part of the working group on Equipment. It aims to give a general vision of the quick couplers, functionalities, types, opportunities & challenges, and regulatory framework.

Mr. Peter Lam

STEELWRIST

This guide would complete the trilogy on demolition and recycling equipment: carriers, attachments and couplers.

The target audience of this document are general contractors and demolition contractors.

It is part of the scope of this group to foster debate and common work about the basic guidelines related with standardization and recommendations for coupling the carrier and the attachment for demolition and recycling applications.
