Side Grip Technology – Movax

Excavator-mounted Movax vibrator equipment, allows sheet piles to be side gripped and to be rotated in both the vertical and horizontal plane. This is a major advantage over older equipment like EMV vibrator units. The vibrator then clamps onto the top of the pile in driving mode like conventional equipment.

Using the Movax system allows longer piles to be installed relative to the operational clearance of the equipment. This flexibility means no service crane or excavator attendances are required, as the Movax can pick piles from stacks on the ground, then pitch and drive the piles. Combined with the reach potential of +5m, the Movax is fast, flexible and offers superb efficiency for installation and extraction of piles up to 12m in length. In-cab electronic monitoring of installation ensures positional accuracy of the piles.
