Vemcon integrates Lekatech attachment app into its CoPilot platform
Vemcon CoPilot platform system ensures productivity, transparency and efficiency for optimal collaboration of man, machine and material.
The Vemcon CoPilot supports the operator in difficult work processes, providing mental and physical relief. Also, an inexperienced operator works faster, safer and more precisely by using the CoPilot platform, which automates and optimizes recurring machine movements.
All excavator operators, contractors and OEMs who control their fleet via the Vemcon CoPilot platform will have access to operating modes for Lekatech's electric tools. The Vemcon CoPilot platform provides one application to control their mining and construction attachment via just one display.
Lekatech Oy was founded 2018 in Kausala, Finland. Lekatech's mission is to revolutionize hammer and other attachment technology. The Finnish startup firmly believes that direct electric drive is the future in hammer technology as well. Vemcon GmbH is a developing and manufacturing company of machine control for work machines. Its CoPilot system is a modular technology platform that offers several functions which are available for excavators markets. With the integration of the Lekatech app in to the Vemcon platform, users can now select different application modes.
In addition, the app allows users to combine different frequency and energy settings for the electric hammer. At the same time, the user monitors data coming from the electric hammer at a glance. The app can be used to collect the hammer’s operating hours. It has also various safety functions and warnings. E.g the hammer will stop automatically in the event of a fault.
Vemcon founder and CEO Jan Rotard: "Our CoPilot system sends all data to the respective fleet management system used by the contractor when required. In doing so, all components can be individually combined with each other by the user at any time and expanded almost indefinitely."
