As a leader in mining tooth systems, ESCO has now developed the revolutionary ToolTek system to service our world-class Nemisys points and adapters. The ToolTek system was a collaborative effort with key mining customers to provide enhanced worker safety when replacing worn components.
ToolTek System Advantages
- Enhanced maintenance worker safety
- Fewer workers to replace G.E.T. components
- All required parts and tools on one truck
- Safer disposal of worn parts
The ToolTek system is a hydraulic crane-mounted tool that is remotely operated, well out of harm’s way during the replacement of worn points and adapters. New parts are pre-staged on racks conveniently positioned on a flatbed truck outfitted with the hydraulic crane. Easy-to-change tool heads for either point or adapter replacement are also mounted on truck bed racks.
Simplifying the Removal and Disposal Process
With the operator well out of the way, the tool head can be precisely maneuvered to engage with the component to be removed, secure it and then disengage the locking mechanism. The worn part is then safely lifted away from the bucket and deposited in the recycle bin.
