Highlighting openness to interfaces: Wacker Neuson cooperates with Open-S Alliance and Clean System

Highlighting openness to interfaces: Wacker Neuson cooperates with Open-S Alliance and Clean System
  • Wacker Neuson joins Open-S Alliance for excavator quick coupler systems

  • Partnership with Oilquick Clean System

  • Participation in the MiC 4.0 working group for software standards for attachments

  • Always in focus: the customers and their flexibility


With its wide range of products, Wacker Neuson aims to make every-day-work on the construction site as easy and efficient as possible. "In the interest of our customers, we are increasingly focusing on interface standards," says Alexander Greschner, Chief Sales Officer of the Wacker Neuson Group. "With open standards, we help to reduce complexity on the construction site and make sure that our customers have the greatest possible flexibility. As a globally active company, we are open to various initiatives and approaches in establishing standards in our industry."


For this reason, the Wacker Neuson Group's attachments division has stepped up its collaboration with two technology leaders in the field of excavator attachments. "We are convinced that the membership in the Open-S Alliance and our close cooperation with Clean System will bring our customers real added value," says Reinhold Baisch, Managing Director Wacker Neuson Aftermarket and responsible for attachments.


The Open-S Alliance is an initiative based on the established symmetrical S-standard for excavator quick coupler systems, which has been expanded to include fully hydraulic quick couplers with the Open-S standard. "Wacker Neuson will soon be offering products that comply with the Open-S standard ex works. It is therefore a logical step for us to become part of the Open-S Alliance," adds Reinhold Baisch. "We are also working together closely with Oilquick to ensure that our attachments have the best possible compatibility with the Clean System for fully hydraulic quick couplers, which is widely used in Central Europe."


In addition to standards in mechanics and hardware, Wacker Neuson is part of the Machines in Construction working group, MiC 4.0, that is working on the introduction of interface standards in the areas of electronics, digital data transfer and software, as digital assistance systems and further developments in the area of human-machine interfaces are also playing an increasingly important role.
