"Dieseko is using over 45 years of experience in vibratory hammers to be applied in their new side gripper making it a unique and reliable machine. Unique in the side clamp-principle and in elastomer geometry, and reliably applied by proven vibratory technology," said Dirk Smulders, CEO of Dieseko Group.
"Before we started to develop, Dieseko performed an extensive study on existing side grippers available in today's market and interviewed a lot of side gripper-operators to understand their challenges. During the development phase of our side gripper, Dieseko's R&D engineers focused on providing a concept which improves the challenges experienced with side grippers currently available, without neglecting Dieseko's design philosophy [limited number of moving parts, protected hoses; both resulting in high reliability, only three hoses for connection]."
The new 2308SG side gripper has four major differences are compared to existing systems. The first of these is a unique linear side-clamping system resulting in a more efficient clamping load transfer. It also features a modular side-grip clamping system resulting in less downtime during the exchange of the side-grip inserts for various profiles. The 2308SG's clamp opens up to 330mm for sheet piles and H-beams and 550mm for casings. Finally, the unique multi-directional elastomers create a more stable and predictable movement of the dynamic part of the side gripper
The exchangeable excavator connection adapter allows the 2308SG side gripper to fit onto any excavator adapter type, whereas the unlimited 360-degree rotary head with ± 35-degree tilting adapter makes it possible to operate the side gripper in any position while handling a profile. Its distinctive design is easily accessible for maintenance.
After extensive testing, partly by very experienced side gripper operators, Dieseko reports that the results and experiences are very promising. The 2308SG uses an oil flow of 214L/min at 350-bar.
A 35t excavator is required for best performance, while the side gripper can be operated by remote-controlled joystick or excavator controls.
