LEKATECH is a startup company founded in 2018 in Finland. Our solid team is committed in revolutionizing hammering technologies. As the carrier machines transform to electric, we believe direct electric drive is the future in hammering, too. The Lekatech linear motor technology is applicable in different end products.
In today’s world environmental sustainability in all sectors has become very important. Limitations by legislation are getting stricter on energy efficiency and CO2 emissions. The cost of energy is not going down, either. Electric hammer reduces the use of energy by up to 80% with zero local CO2 emissions.
For an operator the effectiveness is often the most important feature of a working machine. With electric hammer significantly higher performance values are reached than with conventional technologies.But still, the most impressive advantage of electric hammer lies in its adjustability. Every blow and every gap between the blows can be adjusted individually and dynamically enabling unprecedented possibilities for hammering applications.
Lekatech technology is an embodiment of digitalization in hammering. It is a catalyst for the electric transformation in the ecosystem.
Apart from the substantial benefits over conventional hammering technologies,
electric hammering offers the opportunity to widen the scope of hammering applications.
Lekatech Oy and Vemcon GmbH have been awarded the MINE-Demo voucher (totally 100k€) under the Mine.The.Gap program to develop the control and connectivity of the unique Lekatech electric hammer solution.
Lekatech Oy and Vemcon GmbH have been awarded the MINE-Demo voucher (totally 100k€) under the Mine.The.Gap program to develop the control and connectivity of the unique Lekatech electric hammer solution. The co-operation between the two young and innovative companies is a perfect match as both address the electric transformation of construction and mining machines. Furthermore, the companies complete each other’s offering and together can offer a more complete solution to the target markets. Vemcon is a specialist in user interfaces and connectivity for excavators, while Lekatech is a specialist in hammering device attachments.
MINE.THE.GAP brings together SMEs from the raw materials and mining sector with companies that have solutions for a more digital, greener, and circular mining value chain. Through open calls and support services, MINE.THE.GAP makes business ideas a reality.
Lekatech and its 4 consortium members from 3 other European countries will work for 3 years with the common objective to commercialize the Lekatech electric hammer for mining sector. Both underground and open-pit mining sites are addressed.
Lekatech and its 4 consortium members from 3 other European countries will work for 3 years with the common objective to commercialize the Lekatech electric hammer for mining sector. Both underground and open-pit mining sites are addressed. In the core of the project are 3 pilot sites in 3 different European countries where use cases are to be experimented with Lekatech hammer. In addition to piloting, awareness of Lekatech solution’s possibilities are spread in networking events and publications. The total project size is close to 2,5M€.
This project is a big step in the commercialization development of Lekatech and we are happy to do this together with the consortium members and other stakeholder. A big thank you goes to all the parties that have enabled Lekatech to make this possible. For more information about the project, please be in contact with Team Lekatech. (www.lekatech.fi)
