For more than 80 years
PTC has been mastering
vibration technology
and developing innovative
pile driving solutions:
THE VIBRODRIVERS

The increasing use of hydraulic excavators in piling 4PHF Vibrodriver driving 15 m long

range of Vibrodrivers that are specifically designed
to be mounted directly on the stick of a wide range
of excavators.

PTC excavator mounted Vibrodrivers are efficient


hydraulic vibratory hammers that reduce the
cohesion of the soil through vibration, allowing to
easily drive or extract a variety of profiles, such as:

• Sheet piles
• H and I beams
• Casings and tubes
• Concrete piles
• Wooden piles

PTC proposes as well different clamping systems,


accessories and connection options, allowing a
perfect adaptation to the specificities of the job site
and the excavator.

Variable moment technology


Vibrodrivers of the PHFV range, are equipped with PTC’s
variable moment technology, which enables to permanently control
the vibrations generated by the Vibrodriver.
Thus allowing to work in vibration-sensitive areas (city centers,
urban areas). The variable moment system consists of a phase
shifter that opposes the upper and lower eccentrics to adjust the
vibration, even down to zero (no vibration).

TILTEX® CLAMP
Just tilt, lift and drive.

The Tiltex® is a tilting clamp specially designed for excavator


mounted Vibrodrivers. It improves the handling of sheet piles and the
productivity of piling projects. With this tilting clamp, operators can
1 - Tilt the clamp and grab the sheet pile. grab sheet piles stored on the ground and drive them directly without
any other handling operations.

How does Tiltex® work?


The Tiltex® key characteristic resides in the fact that it swivels in the horizontal position
in order to grab a sheet pile laid on the ground. After closing the clamping jaws, the
excavator operator raises the sheet pile from the ground and tilts the clamp at the same
time, until reaching the vertical position. Once the locking system is activated, the operator
2 - Lift the sheet pile.e. positions the Vibrodriver and the sheet pile in the desired position and starts driving it.

An accessory that makes all the difference!


Tiltex® is innovative due to the fact that it is simply an accessory. It is the first “clamp” that
swivels fully to grab and lift sheet piles from the ground.
This clamp offers an efficient and economical solution, because it remains an “accessory”
which can be easily mounted on existing PTC Vibrodrivers.onte sous les Vibrofonceurs

3 - Position the sheet pile. The Tiltex® 60 t can be mounted in a wide range of PT C Vibrodrivers:

Handling: simplified and optimised..
There’s no longer any need for an additional operator to thread a chain through the sheet pile or use any other basic lifting accessories
to handle the sheet piles: the excavator operator controls all the parameters from the cabin. Safety is also improved during handling
operations, as less manual work is required.

p.15
To obtain the best driving performance, it is key to choose the right excavator for the Vibrodriver (see table in page 5). You also need to
be sure that your excavator is able to keep a constant flow when another excavator circuit is being used and also when pressure goes up
to 300 bar.

The electric control monitors all Vibrodriver functions using only one circuit of the
excavator. This single circuit supplies hydraulic power with proper flow and pressure to
all the Vibrodriver circuits. The Vibrodriver is easily controlled from the cabin by
a control box:

A simple 3-button control box allows controlling:

• Vibrations (hydraulic motor).


• Clamp.
• Amplitude (variable moment system of PHFV models).

Only 1 circuit is required to operate PHF or PHFV Vibrodrivers :


Breaker circuit.

The manifold block developed by PTC allows to control the Vibrodriver by using only
one joystick (vibration and clamps). The operator starts powering the Vibrodriver by
pushing forward the joystick to close the clamp. Then to start the vibration, the joystick
needs to be pushed all the way. To open the clamp the operator moves the joystick
backwards and reverses the flow.

1 circuit is required to operate PHF Vibrodrivers :


Breaker circuit (with two-way hydraulic flow).

2 circuits are required to operate PHFV Vibrodrivers :


Breaker circuit (with two-way hydraulic flow).
Additional circuit: for the variable moment system of the vibrator,
which controls the amplitude.

The flow limitor makes sure the vibrodriver’s maximum oil flow capacity is not surpassed,
thus guaranteeing driving efficiency and protecting the equipment. In addition, the
Vibrodriver can be mounted on excavators with different oil flow capacities, without
needing special adaptation.

2 circuits are required to operate the PHF Vibrodrivers :


Breaker circuit: for the Flow limitor, which controls the hydraulic motor (Vibrations).
Bucket circuit: for the clamp.

3 circuits are required to operate the PHFV Vibrodrivers :


Breaker circuit: for the Flow limitor, which controls the hydraulic motor (Vibrations).
Bucket circuit: for the clamp.
Additional circuit: for the variable moment system of the vibrator,
which controls the amplitude.
