RC Joysticks

Rototilt has previously announced the launch of the Rototilt Control concept. They are now adding another product where the operator is at the centre. “RC Joysticks are strengthening our product offering and providing us with even greater opportunities to influence the end user’s experience of the tiltrotator system. The design work has been both comprehensive and intensive, and we have set high standards to ensure ergonomics, user-friendliness and functionality. We are extremely proud of the product we are now launching", says Caroline Jonsson, Product Manager.

Rototilt is launching the new Rototilt Control product concept in conjunction with Bauma in Munich, promising better operability, improved energy efficiency and new technology in a cohesive system. They have kept one of the new products under the radar to date, but the details of the new RC Joysticks are now being revealed.

“RC Joysticks have been designed to meet our high standards as regards function and quality. We consider it only natural to be able to deliver a complete system of tiltrotators and control systems from the same manufacturer, to satisfy the industry’s high demands in respect of safety and CE marking,” says Caroline Jonsson, Product Manager.

Through field tests involving both male and female machine operators, as well as close collaboration with leading product designers in this area, Rototilt’s objective has been to develop handles that are suitable for a wide range of hand sizes without compromising on fit. Thanks to a digital keypad, they also provide scope for future adaptations in relation to the machine. According to Caroline, the things that users will notice most clearly are the patented angle adjustment and the palm rest.

“Rototilt Control has been developed as a complete system. RC Joysticks, the user display in RC System and the pressure-compensated hydraulics in RC Tiltrotators deliver greater precision than all our previous systems. The overall package will be perceived as much more agile, as it provides the user with complete control over the excavation movement,” says Caroline.

The overall concept comprising upgraded tiltrotators, control systems and the remote support app also ensures faster and easier installation. The new handles will be launched at Bauma, which is taking place from 24th October.

“The demands for new technology, operability and user-friendliness are constantly increasing. Rototilt Control is our response to the growing need we are witnessing on the market and above all, to the things we are hearing from the end users themselves. After a lengthy period of product development, we are looking forward to seeing the market’s reaction,” says Caroline.

Rototilt Control in brief:

  • New series of tiltrotators with newly developed hydraulics
  • New control system with easier operation of SecureLock
  • Mobile app for remote support
  • Ergonomic joysticks
