Light and lean – optimised wheel loader quick changer in use

Recently, a revised version of the wheel loader quick changer from Rädlinger Maschinen- und Anlagenbau GmbH has been in use at a composting plant of HÄ-SE GmbH in Berlin. Using state-of-the-art simulation software, the complete design of the Volvo-compatible quick changer was reworked and optimised. The result is obvious: Not only was the weight reduced by around 30%, but also the handle bar length by around 20%. The quick changer is thus more compact and light. Through the new design, losses in breakaway torque and tearing forces are reduced, and the centre of gravity is shifted towards the wheel loader.

The calculated performance of the new quick changer is now being tested in practice. In various field trials, which were made possible by subsidiaries of the company Kiesel, among others, the optimised quick changer is also tested for usability and practicality. All test results will be assessed at the end of the year. Rädlinger is planning to start series production next year.
In addition to quick changers, the optimisation extends to all products of the wheel loader range: To increase the performance and stability, shovel shapes were also improved and adapted to the shovel rear on the new quick changer.

In the area of construction machinery equipment, Rädlinger Maschinen- und Anlagenbau GmbH provides an enormous range of products. But it is quality and constant optimisation of the attachments, rather than diversity, which are in the foreground. Harmonisation of the structures, FEM calculations and detailed practice tests ensure high quality and thus the success of the products.
