R&D investment from Hidromek
09 April 2018
Turkish manufacturer Hidromek said it aimed to meet all the needs of customers under one brand, and having invested in its product range with R&D and design work recently, it will be exhibiting some of its new machines at the show.
After the HMK 600 MG motor grader and HMK 640 WL wheeled loader were added to its product range in early 2017, Hidromek now has the HMK 130 CS soil compactor, HMK 60 CR midi crawler excavator, and HMK 145 LC SR crawler excavator – all to be launched at Intermat 2018.
Its excavators, loaders, hydraulic excavators and motor graders are manufactured in five production facilities, including four factories in Ankara, one in İzmir and one in Thailand. In 2017, part of its new production facility located in an area of 1 million m² started up in Ankara.
In Paris, Hidromek will exhibit the HMK 62SS, HMK 102B Alpha, HMK 102S Supra and HMK 102B backhoe loader product group. Wheeled excavators at the fair will be the HMK 140 W and HMK 200 W.
From the crawler excavator product group, the HMK 220 NLC, HMK 300 LC, HMK 390 LC HD and HMK 490 LC HD will also be exhibited.
On top of this, Hidromek will debut its new additions. It said that the HMK 60 CR crawler excavator transferred the ergonomics of heavy class machines to midi excavators, with joystick and console ergonomics at the same level as heavier excavators.
It added that the same was true of the HMK 145 LC SR crawler excavator. Both use the Opera operator interface, which is used to facilitate the easy use of the machine.
