Open-S – a standard for fully automatic quick couplers for excavators – is being launched today. Machine operators can combine machine couplers, tiltrotators and tools from different manufacturers who are in compliance with the standard and be confident that they will be compatible with each other. Products that comply with the standard are marked “Open-S”.
