Engcon and Volvo launch global collaboration as start of long-term joint developmentadmin
In 2020, a collaboration started with Engcon‘s eML (engcon Machine Link) and Volvo Smart Connect. This resulted in the first compatible machines, an updated EC250 E and EC300 E, with customer delivery due in the first quarter of 2021. The project is the start of a global collaboration agreement between Volvo Construction Equipment and Engcon. The goal is to offer machines with Engcon’s tiltrotator and safe quick couplers prepared as an integral part of the machine.
eML (engcon Machine Link) is Engcon’s solution which, together with Volvo Smart Connect enables Engcon’s tiltrotator to become an integral part of the machine. Via a smart interface, Engcon’s control system can communicate with the machine’s computer for both control of the tiltrotator and integration with Volvo’s own developed machine control system Dig Assist.
“With this intelligent solution, Engcon’s tiltrotator can become a fully integrated part of the machine and the benefits are many: time savings during installation, retained CE marking and direct integration with Volvo Dig Assist to name just a few. Customers can enjoy a fully integrated solution where value and customer experience are totally in focus,” explains Fredrik Eklind, Product Owner at Engcon Control Systems.
